Chart positions

This upload was 4th in the #rockabilly chart, 17th in the #oldies chart and 42nd in the #rock chart.

It’s here: By request, the original versions of several of the tunes that Elvis sang on record! Since Elvis Presley didn’t write very many of his own songs, the majority of The King's recorded output were covers, numbering nearly 700 tracks in all. With that in mind, and due to Elvis's massive catalogue of music, we’re obviously not going to cover all of them in tonight’s program. In addition, missing in action will be songs that were already featured on previous episodes of The Captain Maniac Show (“Polk Salad Annie” fits in that category). However, we’ve compiled what we feel is “the best of the rest”, so wranglers, let’s git ta wranglin’! And hands up those of you who can identify the Elvis movie where that line was spoken!

Hunny Bunny Baby gets the prize! Yes it was Loving You indeed, although it wasn't Elvis, but a member of Tex Warner's band who got to say those immortal words!

Tex himself as I recall. There were some great lines used in that movie 'this town's gonna get paving faster than a frog on a hot rock', 'you sure know you're way around a car ma'am'...'i have to in my line of work, I'm a girl' ;)
