I Love You Because - (Single)

 2012 1015 elvis lisa presley love you because 400

On October 15, 2012, Lisa Marie Presley premiered her emotional duet with her father, Elvis Presley.

"I Love You Because" was first recorded by Elvis on July 4th and 5th, 1954 at SUN Studio. The session started on the 4th and ended early on the morning of the 5th in Memphis, Tenn., the same day he recorded "That's All Right." Producer Sam Phillips did not think "I Love You Because" was the right song for Elvis' first single, so it eventually found its way to his first album released in 1956. Following its first studio recording, the song was never performed again by Elvis. Lisa Marie recorded her vocals to the song on August 8, 2012 at The Village in Santa Monica, Calif., after consulting with producer T-Bone Burnett who presented her with the idea of "I Love You Because" as a special song for her fans.

"I Love You Because" Lyrics

ELVIS - "Solo Performance"

I love you because you understand dear

Every single thing I try to do.

You're always there to lend a helping hand, dear.

I love you most of all because you're you.

No matter what the world may say about me,

I know your love will always see me through.

ELVIS & LISA MARIE – "Duet/Harmony"

I love you for the way you never doubt me.

But most of all I love you 'cause you're you.
No matter what may be the style or season,

I know your heart will always be true.

I love you for a hundred thousand reasons,

But most of all I love you 'cause you're you.

To Whom It May Concern

to whom it may concern shadeThis is a sharp, ambitious mainstream pop/rock album performed by a singer with real character — thankfully, one that's surly, not sweet, since there's been too much sweetness from divas in the 2000s. This is a strong, assured debut.
