Love Me Tender

Music by Vera Matson

Originally Performed by Elvis Presley

"Love Me Tender" is a 1956 song recorded by Elvis Presley and published by Elvis Presley Music from the eponymous 20th Century Fox film. The words and music are credited to Ken Darby under the pseudonym "Vera Matson", the name of his wife, and Elvis Presley. The RCA Victor recording by Elvis Presley was no. 1 on both the Billboard and Cashbox charts in 1956. The song was adapted from the tune of "Aura Lee", a sentimental Civil War ballad. The song is also featured in many other films such as FM, Touched By Love, This is Elvis, Porky's Revenge, Wild at Heart, Die Hard 2, Honeymoon in Vegas, Backbeat, Gaudi Afternoon, Machine Gun Molly, The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, William Eggleston in the Real World, California Dreamin', Love in Space, Devil's Due, Just Before I Go, and 90 Minutes in Heaven.

Ladies First : 1st : 00  1 CD : Manfred Adams

Ladies First : 1st

When "Ladies First" was founded in 1991, they didn't know that their name would also become a testimony of our success. Since the first German Barbershop Competition in 1992, Ladies First has taken first place every time. They won three provincial choral competitions and were the first German Chorus to qualify and be invited to the Sweet Adelines Internationals in Atlanta in 1999. Their director, experienced German "Barbershopper" Manfred Adams, brings the best out of his "Ladies," whether it be in music, choreography or simply entertainment. "1st" is all sung in English, and is an impressive, finely-crafted tour-de-force of a CD. The powerful harmonies, the innovative arrangements and the sheer, infectious spirit of these four women show why they have won so many awards in the growing European Barbershop movement. 15 cuts, "This is Some Lucky Day," "Original Dixieland One Step," "Stars Fell on Alabama," "It Don't Mean A Thing," an amazing arranged "Drunken Sailor," a "Good Old Acappella" that warms our hearts, a smoky "Hit Me With A Hot Note," a randy "Gimme, Gimme, Gimme," Elvis' "Love Me Tender," and a swinging "Royal Garden Blues" are favorites. Sweet Adelines has taken strong root in Europe, and Ladies First has the kind of sound and pizzazz that we have only seen from groups wearing International medals and posing in front of large trophies-give 'em a listen!

Songlist: This Is Some Lucky Day, Love Is Here To Stay, Original Dixiland One Step, Stars Fell On Alabama, It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing), The Rose, Drunken Sailor, One Alone, Good Old A Cappella, Their Hearts Were Full of Spring, Hit Me With A Hot Note, When October Goes, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, Love Me Tender, Royal Garden Blues

Metropolis : Aural Hygiene : 00  1 CD

Metropolis : Aural Hygiene

The new generation of barbershop is here as Metropolis, winners of the 1998 Harmony Sweepstakes, deliver their first CD. The group has assembled a collection of familiar songs from different eras, such as "Our Day Will Come," "Love Me Tender" and "Honey's Lovin' Arms," all "Metropolized," the definition of which is as follows: close, rich harmonies, performed with such flawless intonation and dynamics, that the chords surge as if they will take flight and soar right out of the CD player! The arrangements have just enough individuality to keep the proceedings lively, and provide the challenge this group requires without becoming arcane. In other words, this CD will be prized by the traditional barbershop listener, and appreciated by those who typically prefer other styles. Included is "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch," in honor of Christmas season, with its wry spoken interlude, and "Yakko's World," which some may remember from their winning Sweepstakes performance.

Songlist: Alexander's Ragtime Medley, I'm Afraid of the Beautiful Girls, Pure Imagination, Straighten Up & Fly Right, Our Day Will Come, You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch, My Honey's Lovin Arms, Don't Blame Me, Floatin' Down to Cotton Town, Stay AwakeBrent Graham, Love Me Tender, I'm In Love Again/ Them There Eyes Medley, Yakko's World, Sing, Sing, Sing (With a Swing), The Lion Sleeps Tonight
