My Spin

(Just my opinion. Give us yours!)
Elvis takes a stab at some blue-eyed soul with this fine tune, originally done by Chuck Jackson.

I'll write some more about this later, promise, but for now, check out the links and stuff!

Other Spins

(What did the critics and fans say?)

"Any Day Now" is another fine song, with music by Burt Bacharach. Typically, the melody has unusual contours, and the arrangement produces strange sonorities from the orchestra: now an oboe solo, now a few bars of solo violin, now the deep and solid brass sound. Presley gives a staggering performance: powerful, wide ranging, full of expression.

Robert Matthew-Walker, Elvis Presley: A Study in Music, 1979

Sharply arranged and potent version of a Chuck Jackson oldie.

The Complete Elvis, edited by Martin Torgoff, 1982

"Any Day Now" Lyrics and Downloads

Any day now I will hear you say
Goodbye my love
You'll be on your way
Then my wild beautiful bird
You will have flown
Any day now I’ll be all alone
Oh, oh, oh

Any day now, when your restless eyes
Meet someone new
To my sad surprise
Then the blue shadow will fall all over town
Any day now
Love will let me down
and you won't be around

I know I shouldn't want to keep you
If you don't want to stay, yeah
Until you've gone forever
I'll be holding on for dear life
Holding you this way
Begging you to stay

Any day now
When the clock strikes go
You'll call it off
Then my tears will flow
Then the blue shadow will fall all over town
Any day now
Love will let me down
You won't be around

Oh, any day now
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, any day now
Don't fly away my beautiful bird

Don't fly away my beautiful bird
