  1. Elvis made it his own along with all the theatrics and karate moves. Newberry, like Jimmy Webb was a prolific songwriter, but this trilogy seems to be his only big hit. Nice legacy. Today, this song will offend virtually everyone on the planet, especially our Einstein’s under 30.

    • Good point- you are correct- if a performer did this in concert today- imagine the uproar- headline news… protests- a career in crisis. apologies not accepted… it would be a mess.
