My ‘N’ Elvis topic for the A to Z Blogging Challenge is song that was never released as an Elvis studio single, but has always been one of my favorites and I think one of the best live songs Elvis ever did. “Never Been to Spain” was written and released by Hoyt Axton in 1971, but was made popular later that year by Three Dog Night. It was included on Elvis’ 1972 live album As Recorded at Madison Square Garden and became a staple in Elvis’ live shows in the early 1970s.
I love “Never Been to Spain” for the passionate way Elvis sings it for the build up of the music. It’s not about the lyrics with this one, it is the sexy, impassioned way Elvis performs it.
