You are watching: Elvis presley crazy little thing called love
MY APOLOGIES, IAM so late (STILL) v the promised collection of articles on the yellow Standard Series that Elvis records. And also asecond, an ext controversial article offers arevealing look in ~ ahighly sought-after collectable through adubious pedigree. Iam still working on technical aspects of my blogs and still have obstacles in the route of having actually them up-to-date and running quickly and also smoothly. So, below is alittle piece just to fill the time up between majorposts.
Once again, it’s my answer to aquestion ~ above Quora. The question is “Why perform many people think Elvis go Crazy small Thing dubbed Love?” Although my answer has actually two parts, it’s rather brief and also can be uncovered between the 2 horizontal linesbelow:
1. Iliked Crazy tiny Thing called Love the very first time Iheard the in 1979. That remains one of my favorite Queen records.
2. Ican’t imagine anyone that is really familiar through Elvis Presley’s music thinking that Freddie Mercury sound remotely prefer Elvis. He does capture few of the heart of ol’ Swivel Hips, though.
That’s it—those 2 numbered currently constitute mine entire answer.
I had the damndest time settling top top atitle for this piece. Iwanted it to it is in humorous however everything Icame up could have sound condescending towards Freddie Mercury or his fans or even Elvis! (For example, “Don’t Freddie perform Ol’ Elvis best Proud top top Crazy little Thing dubbed Love“?)
The title Isettled ~ above doesn’t have actually the pop or pizazz the Iwanted.
Crazy small Thing referred to as Love to be included ~ above Queen’s album THE GAME. The covering of the album featured ablack and white photograph of the team taken throughout the session for the video clip they created MTV. The photo has actually an intentionally blurred look—an almost amateurish look.
Elvis left his jumpsuit at Freddie’s
Most that the answers come the question tend to be on the opposite side of the position Itook (and Iassume they room from younger people). Much more in line v my attitude but much an ext clever and also entertaining to be this answer left by Tim Boomsma:
“Elvis left his white sequined jumpsuit in ~ Freddie Mercury’s residence one night. Once Freddie put it on, his voice gained deeper, making that sound alittle much more Elvis-like.“
