Pot Luck

One of the strangest titles for an album I ever saw. Elvis must have thought that by the time he recorded his fifteenth album his fans would be willing to accept anything he recorded. This album came out on June 5, 1962. Once again I must say this album includes lots of songs I have never heard. Most of these songs were written by the songwriting team of Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman. The album includes a song titled “That’s Someone You Never Forget” and is a collaboration between Elvis, who gave the concept and title and Red West. It is thought to be written in memory of Elvis’ mother. The song was released as a single in 1967. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pot_Luck_(Elvis_Presley_album)

Was that the mom of Elvis that he was then kissing in the album?

@RasmaSandra Oh really? I wonder why I always thought his Grandma raised him..confused with something else I guess..Yes that is very strange and spooky. God rest them both.

From what I understand, Elvis was a bit of a mama's boy. Not surprised he wrote a song about her.

I haven't heard that before, but I do know he would do anything to give his mom a wonderful life.
