My Spin

(Just my opinion. Give us yours!)
"I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Cry (Over You)", from Elvis' second RCA session in January 1956, carries on the rockabilly feel from Sun Studios. Unfortunately, even with a Roy Hamilton tune that Elvis obviously enjoyed and 18 takes at it, the recording doesn't quite gel. Some great moments in there, though, especially Shorty Long's boogie piano and Elvis' playful vocal.

Other Spins

(What did the critics and fans say?)


"I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Cry", another fast number, is punched along by a walking bass and insistent chord clusters from the piano. Presley is very close to the microphone, but the guitar solo is poor, and the song fails to ignite.

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





Another cut from the early RCA days, a lesser known and successful number with a chunky beat and Elvis in top vocal form. This cut always drew the distinction of being a novelty among Elvis fans - an overlooked gem.

Martin Torgoff, The Complete Elvis, 1982

I'm gonna sit right down and cry over you
I'm gonna sit right down and cry over you
If you ever say good-bye
If you ever even try
I'm gonna sit right down and cry over you

I'm gonna love you more and more every day
I'm gonna love you more and more in every way
If you ever say good-bye
If you ever even try
I'm gonna sit right down and cry over you

I'm gonna tell my mama tell my papa too
So they'll know exactly what I’m gonna do
If you ever say good-bye
If you ever even try
