About The Song

Elvis. The name itself conjures up images of electrifying performances, heart-stopping hip shakes, and a voice that could melt butter (or hearts, depending on your age!). But Elvis was more than just a charismatic performer. He was a talented singer who could deliver a ballad with tenderness or a rocker with raw energy. And in 1960, fresh off his return from serving in the U.S. Army, he released a song that perfectly captured the feeling of being hopelessly, head-over-heels in love: “Stuck on You”.

Now, for those of us who remember the early days of rock and roll, “Stuck on You” was a breath of fresh air. After a period of national service, Elvis was back, and his music had a new maturity about it. Gone were some of the raw edges of his earlier recordings, replaced by a smoother, more polished sound. But don’t be fooled – “Stuck on You” still held onto that infectious Elvis energy.

The song itself is a playful declaration of devotion. The lyrics, written by Aaron Schroeder and J. Leslie McFarland, are full of sweet metaphors and playful imagery. Elvis sings about being as inseparable from his love interest as an apple is from its tree. He talks about running his fingers through her hair and squeezing her tight (though in a sweet, not creepy way, of course!).

But beneath the playful exterior, there’s a genuine sense of affection. The song isn’t just about physical attraction; it’s about the feeling of being completely captivated by someone. Elvis assures his sweetheart that no matter where she tries to hide, he’ll find her, because their love is a powerful bond that nothing can break.

“Stuck on You” was a smash hit, reaching number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and solidifying Elvis’s status as the King of Rock and Roll. It became a favorite at sock hops and juke joints across America, a soundtrack for countless teenage romances.

Even today, “Stuck on You” retains its charm. It’s a reminder of a simpler time, when love songs were sweet and sincere, and a good beat was all you needed to get your feet tapping. So put on your blue suede shoes, crank up the volume, and let Elvis remind you of the feeling of being truly, madly, deeply Stuck on You.
