You should be able to find a clip of him performing it on the Ed Sullivan Show. It's an acapella performance, with the Jordanaires backing him.

I think watching him in his early movies is fun.

My favorite is "Love Me Tender" and it isn't even his best.

I like it because he is young and tender when he recorded the song for the movie. The movie was about a young and tender person whose heart was broken but trapped in a no win situation. The song is simple and true, perfect baritone sung tenderly. And Elvis himself was apparently that young tender (again) man who went a little overboard but not as much as later.

I like it also because I have never heard anyone have a complaint about Elvis, all who knew him say sweet things about him. That is unusual in this world.

Yes. (And was he cute, or what?) From "Viva Las Vegas."
