There are many great Elvis songs beginning with ‘Y’ for me to choose from for my Blogging A to Z Challenge including “You Gave Me a Mountain,” “Young and Beautiful” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone.” But I chose “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me” as my favorite Elvis ‘Y’ topic, but “You Gave Me a Mountain” is a VERY close second.
I just love those first two beats (“When I said” boom boom “I needed you”) of “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me” and then the song just takes off. The flip side of “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me” is “Patch It Up,” which is another favorite of mine I would have written about for my ‘P’ Elvis topic had I not written about Priscilla. “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me” was originally made famous by Dusty Springfield in 1966 – and the year before that it was an Italian song. Elvis recorded it in 1970 and released it on That’s the Way It Is.
