Elvis Presley - Return To Sender

"Return to Sender" is a 1962 hit single recorded by American singer Elvis Presley and published by Elvis Presley Music. The song was written by Winfield Scott and Otis Blackwell.

Presley performed "Return to Sender" in the film Girls! Girls! Girls!. It featured Presley's longtime cohorts Barney Kessel on electric guitar, Tiny Timbrell on acoustic guitar, Ray Siegal on Double bass, D.J. Fontana on drums, Dudley Brooks on piano, Boots Randolph on baritone saxophone, and the Jordanaires on backing vocals.

The song peaked at number 1 on the UK Singles Chart, and number 2 on the American Billboard singles chart. It was the first Christmas number one in Ireland, as the Irish Charts had been founded in October 1962.

I can't say I'm a right big fan of Elvis' music. I don't hate it but I also don't get what all the fuss is about him or his music! But I have to say that I have always liked this song and it is probably my favourite Elvis song. I actually think I bought this single as a teenager when he died in 1977.
