When God showered the blessings of good looks, good voice, and charisma, Elvis Presley must have received the greatest portion. His baritone and tenor voice can cross-over from one genre to another. He could reach the high notes, as well as the low notes, and never failed to leave the audience awed. When he sings an upbeat song, we dance with him; when he goes mellow, we sway with him; when he expresses fondness, we fall in love with him; and when he becomes emotional, our heart goes out with him as well.

One of his fans’ most favorite romantic recording is his “And I Love You So.” His single was recorded on March 11, 1975, in Hollywood, California, at RCA studio. Though it wasn’t his original, he sang like it was his own. Putting his personal rhythm, the song became even more passionate. Presley used it in almost every live show until his passing.

Don McLean owns the credit for the adult contemporary’s original release. “And I Love You So” is a single from McLean’s debut album, Tapestry, which was released in 1970. The track has since been recorded by different artists. Country singers who recorded a version of the song include Glen Campbell, Bobby Goldsboro, Tom T. Hall, and Emmylou Harris.

And yes, I know how lonely life can be
The shadows follow me
And the night won’t set me free
But I don’t let the evening get me down
Now that you’re around me

The song is a pure expression of love. It’s a story between two lovers who see the true meaning and gratification of life when they met each other. Life has been lonely when their paths did not cross yet. Their mutual feeling strengthens them through whatever circumstance they may face. The song mentions that when everything’s gone, everything else fails, love will remain.

For fellas out there, who are in love, you will surely understand every word from the song. So here’s live version of Elvis Presley’s “And I Love You So” dedicated especially to you. Enjoy watching.
