Elvis Presley Song:

Are You Lonesome Tonight? (1960)

(Music and lyrics by Turk and Handman)

In this song a couple has drifted apart. The man is asking the lady if she is lonesome, missing him, or if the chairs in her parlor seem empty - or if he should come back again.

The middle part of the song is spoken instead of sung. He says the world is like a stage, and their love was like a play with various acts - she seemed to be acting through it and lying. But he'd rather go back to her to hear her lies than to go on living without her. If she won't come back to him, he mentions, "They can bring the curtain down".

The chorus line says:

"Is your heart filled with pain?
Shall I come back again?
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?"

Are You Lonesome Tonight video, performed by 24K Gold Music Shows:

This must be the saddest song I've ever heard. Because my dad was a HUGE fan this was one of the songs he sang often. I still believe when he sang it, he dedicated to my mom as they got divorced. When he sang it, I could see the pain in his eyes (same with Elvis). He loved my mom so much, and never got involved again. He took their love once shared to his grave. (Miss you Elvis...miss you dad...)

magnificent,unforgettable voice pertaining time and human hearts it is who Elvis Presley was

He was my IDOL!! Also he was poor, and has proven that you can make a change and be somebody. Also his music was suitable for all ages. He will always be KING!!!!
