Our song for today is Morrissey's live cover of this Elvis Presley song (written by Elvis, Red West, and Charlie Hodge). Elvis' version was released as a single in 1965 and was also on the soundtrack of Girl Happy.
The story behind its creation (thanks Wikipedia, quoting from liner notes by Ernst Jorgensen) is a good one: "When Priscilla came to visit Elvis in the U.S. in the spring of 1962, Elvis proudly played her the new recordings he had just made in Nashville. One of these was 'You'll Be Gone,' a song that he had written himself with his good friends Red West and Charlie Hodge. To his deep frustration, Priscilla remarked that she liked his rock 'n' roll recordings better. Elvis had a fit, Priscilla was devastated, and Elvis never tried to write a song again."
Morrissey's live version was released on the deluxe edition of Low in High School. What do we think?
