Gently

Elvis Presley Lyrics Words & Music by Murray Wisell / Edward Lisbona Elvis Presley Lyrics

Gently your eyes met mine
Tender, trusting, true
Gently your hand took mine
Thrilled me through and through

Gently, oh so gently
Gentle as the dawn
Gently, oh so gently
Our true love was born

Gently your lips kissed mine
As we strolled along
Gently your heart touched mine
Young and warm and strong

Gently the hour is near
When true loves have to part
Gently we'll meet again
One more kiss, sweetheart

Recorded: 1961/03/12, first released on Something For Everybody

Elvis Presley and Blue Hawaii

Blue Hawaii
Blue Hawaii LP 1961

On March 14, 1961, Elvis and assorted friends, assistants, and bodyguards flew to Los Angeles so he could begin production on his next film, Blue Hawaii. Upon his arrival, he spent a few fun-filled days with friends Juliet Prowse, Joan Blackman, and Pat Fackethal, a real-life stewardess selected to play a bit part as a stewardess in the film. Afterward, he buckled down to record the songs that would comprise the soundtrack. Elvis recorded the tunes for the modestly budgeted musical comedy in Hollywood as opposed to Nashville, where much of his non soundtrack music was produced.

Blue Hawaii became Elvis' biggest-selling movie soundtrack.

It topped the Billboard albums chart two months after its October 1961 release. It was the No. 1 album in the country for 20 weeks, which set a record for a rock performer or group that lasted until 1977 when Fleetwood Mac's Rumors broke it. Blue Hawaii remained on the albums chart for 79 weeks and was awarded double platinum status by the RIAA in March 1992.
