My Spin

(Just my opinion. Give us yours!)
"Anything That's Part Of You" is another in a series of fine ballads written by Don Robertson for Elvis. As with most ballads from the early '60s, Elvis shows his chops, alternating between softly crooning and strongly projecting his vocals (on the bridge, "Oh how it hurts to miss you so..."). A fine performance.

Other Spins

(What did the critics and fans say?)

"Anything That's Part Of You", a ballad, is one of the most underestimated Presley recordings. Floyd Cramer's piano is to the fore, and through it an acoustic guitar weaves delicate embroidery. Presley's performance builds to hypnotic effect.

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

A slow, sad weeper with Elvis in full-throated sincerity and a fine tinkling Floyd Cramer piano.

The Complete Elvis, edited by Martin Torgoff, 1982

Tender, affecting ballads such as this were Don Robertson's specialty, and Elvis rarely sounded as attuned to a lyric as he does here. His inimitable sense of performance was well in evidence.

- Peter Guralnik, from Elvis Presley/Artist of the Century liner notes.

"Anything That's Part Of You" Lyrics and Downloads

I memorize the note you sent
Go all the places that we went
I seem to search the whole day through
For anything that's part of you

I kept a ribbon from your hair
A breath of perfume lingers there
It helps to cheer me when I'm blue
Anything that's part of you

Oh, how it hurts to miss you so
When I know you don't love me anymore
To go on needing you
Knowing you don't need me

No reason left for me to live
What can I take, what can I give
When I'd give all of someone new
For anything that's part of you
