Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller teamed up with Doc Pomus for the first time for this big hit (although Lieber-Stoller had earlier reworked Pomus' "Young Blood" for the Coasters, and given him cowriter credit). Although not a fast rocker, as you might expect from a team like that, "She's Not You" still serves as a nice showcase for Elvis' pop vocal chops, starting way down low in the a-cappella opening to each verse and reaching up high on the bridge. A solid performance of a catchy tune.
