About The Song

In 1956-57 Presley continued his chart-topping ways with “I Want You, I Need You, I Love You”, “Hound Dog”, “Don’t Be Cruel”, “Love Me Tender”, “Too Much”, “All Shook Up”, “Jailhouse Rock” and “(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear” all climbing to #1. The B-side to “(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear” was “Loving You”. While that song stalled at #28 on the Billboard Pop charts, in Vancouver it climbed to #2.

“Loving You” was written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. The duo wrote over 70 songs that made the pop charts across three decades. Their first song was in 1952, “Hard Times,” Charles Brown’s final Top Ten R&B. Lieber and Stoller’s last hit record was “I Keep Forgettin’” recorded by Michael McDonald in 1982. In between they collaborated with Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil to compose “On Broadway” for The Drifters. They’d also co-written “There Goes My Baby” for The Drifters with Ben. E. King and when King went solo, they co-wrote “Stand By Me.”

“Loving You” was the title song from the film Loving You which gave Elvis top billing as a star. The plot concerned a delivery man named Deke Rivers who is discovered by a music publicist and a country–western musician who want to promote the talented amateur.  The film was based on the short story “A Call from Mitch Miller.”

Lyric

🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤

I will spend my whole life through
Loving you, loving you
Winter, summer, springtime too
Loving you, loving you
Makes no difference where I go or what I do
You know that I’ll always be loving you
Just you and
If I’m seen with someone new
Don’t be blue, don’t you be blue
I’ll be faithful, I’ll be true
Always true, true to you
There is only one for me
And you know who
You know that I’ll always be
Loving you
