My Spin

(Just my opinion. Give us yours!)
"(Such An) Easy Question", in which Elvis does a bit of a Dean Martin impression, and gets away with it, making it to the top of the Easy Listening charts!

I'll dig into this a little more later, but in the meantime, feel free to make yourself at home, browse the links and stuff.

Other Spins

(What did the critics and fans say?)

"Easy Question" is too innocuous...This is not a criticism of Presley, who sings ... superbly, but of the material.

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

A slow/medium ballad - light, pleasant, but a lesser effort.

Martin Torgoff, The Complete Elvis, 1982

"(Such An) Easy Question" Lyrics and Downloads

Do you or don't you love me
Such an easy question
Why can't I get an answer
Tell me, will you or won't you need me
Such an easy question
Why can't I get an answer

All you do is give a sigh
And beat around the bush
Can it be that you're too shy
To give yourself a little old push
Can you or can't you tell me yes
It's such an easy question
Why can't I get an answer
