I love this song and Elvis is the best singer in the world! And how proud we are that he was an American and the greatest entertainer in the world!
This song is cool! I love how the doll got jealous! Priceless, absolutely priceless! Perhaps no singer in the world could handle this song and Hound Dog and still sound great.
Elvis Presley is mostly known as the King of Rock and Roll. However, during his dripping successful decades, he was also pretty famous for his acting career. «Wooden Heart» is a song best known for its use in the 1960 Elvis Presley film G.I. Blues.
The song was a hit single for Presley in the UK Singles Chart, making No. 1 for six weeks there in March and April 1961, but was not released on a single in the United States until November 1964, where it was the B-side to «Blue Christmas». «Wooden Heart», was written by Fred Wise, Ben Weisman, Kay Twomey and German bandleader Bert Kaempfert, based on a German folk song by Friedrich Silcher, «Muss i’ denn zum Städtele hinaus».
Whenever Elvis Presley appeared in a movie, there was always a song or two included. After all, you don’t have the King of Rock n’ Roll starring in a film and not take advantage of his singing talents. “Wooden Heart” is one of the more unusual songs Elvis sang and it is best known for its use in his 1960 film ‘G.I. Blues’.
