My Spin

(Just my opinion. Give us yours!)

with Sue Ane Langdon and Donna Douglas
"Please Don't Stop Loving Me" was a love song Elvis sang to Donna Douglas in Frankie And Johnny. Typical of Elvis' soundtrack ballads, Elvis performs it well enough, but the mix has his vocals way up and all other vocals and instruments way back, giving the overall impression of a rehearsal version rather than a final take. Another example of the lack of care with the soundtracks. Too bad, since it's an attractive little tune.

Other Spins

(What did the critics and fans say?)

"Please Don't Stop Loving Me" is a formula number of poor quality.

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

...a subdued ballad with mellow piano and Elvis in fine voice.

The Complete Elvis, edited by Martin Torgoff, 1982

"Please Don't Stop Loving Me" Lyrics and Downloads

Please don't stop loving me
You were born just to be in my arms
In my arms
Please don't stop loving me
Your lips were made just to be kissed by me
Kissed by me

When I'm with you
I don't know day from night, wrong from right
You are my world, that's all I know
I love you so, I won't let go

Please don't stop loving me
Darling you'll always be mine alone
Mine alone
