Elvis Presley
Just Tell Her Jim Said Hello (1962)
(Leiber/Stoller)

Originally the B-Side of the Single "Stuck on You"
Then on "Elvis' Gold Records, Vol. 4" and other Greatest Hits compilations

A sweet little nothing of a song. Don't know why, but I really like it.
Maybe it's the strange progression in the Middle 8? Maybe the interesting
change the lick takes with the G chord? Is it Elvis' voice which is soooo
creamy here? Or . . .

About the artist behind Just Tell Her Jim Said Hello:

Elvis Aaron Presley[1][2] (January 8, 1935–August 16, 1977), sometimes written Aron,a was an American singer, musician and actor. He is considered a cultural icon, sometimes referred to as "The King of Rock 'n' Roll", or simply "The King".

Presley began his career as one of the first performers of rockabilly, an uptempo fusion of country and rhythm and blues with a strong back beat. His novel versions of existing songs, mixing "black" and "white" sounds, made him popular—and controversial—as did his uninhibited stage and television performances. He recorded songs in the rock and roll genre, with tracks like "Hound Dog" and "Jailhouse Rock" later embodying the style. Presley had a versatile voice and had unusually wide success encompassing other genres, including gospel, blues, ballads and pop. To date, he has been inducted into four music halls of fame.

In the 1960s, Presley made the majority of his thirty-one movies—mainly poorly reviewed, but financially successful, musicals. In 1968, he returned with acclaim to live music in a television special, and thereafter performed across the U.S., notably in Las Vegas. Throughout his career, he set records for concert attendance, television ratings and recordings sales. He is one of the best-selling and most influential artists in the history of popular music. Health problems plagued Presley in later life which, coupled with a punishing tour schedule and addiction to prescription medication, led to his premature death at age 42.
