My Spin

(Just my opinion. Give us yours!)

Elvis recorded George Jones' country hit "She Thinks I Still Care" during his February 1976 Graceland sessions, and it accompanied "Moody Blue" on the single that preceeded the Moody Blue album. Elvis does a fine job on this old standard, although the more uptempo version released eventually on the '70s box set is slightly better than the single version, for my money.

I'll add some more later, but meanwhile check out the music and links.

Other Spins

(What did the critics and fans say?)

"She Thinks I Still Care" is good Nashville-influenced material, but Presley's voice lacks something. Perhaps he is set too far back. But the vocal quality fades and breaks as if he is suffering from breathing or throat troubles.

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

C&W weeper (a hit for George Jones in 1962) done in a strong voice from the Graceland sessions. The overdubbing was later removed to good effect. Good modern country ballad.

Martin Torgoff, The Complete Elvis, 1982

"She Thinks I Still Care" Lyrics and Downloads

Oh just because I asked a friend about her
Just because I spoke her name somewhere
Just because I rang her number by mistake today
You know she thinks I, I still care

And just because I haunt the same old places
Where the memory of her lingers everywhere
Just because I'm not the happy guy I used to be
Lord, you know, she thinks I still care

Well, if she's happy thinking I still need her
Yeh, let that silly notion bring her cheer
Oh how could she ever be so foolish
Tell me where did she get, lord such an idea

Just because I asked a friend about her
And you know, just because I spoke her name somewhere
Just because, lord I saw her and went to pieces
Lord, you know, she thinks I, lord, still care

You know, she thinks I, I still care

Lord, she thinks I still care
Oh no she thinks I still care
