This has been on heavy rotation on my laptop recently. Elvis singing “one of the most recorded songs of the 20th century,” sweating about a gallon of prescription drugs (mostly during the falsetto break, which he nonetheless crushes) in the process.

I’m also really curious about how he can flash those irreverent, even innocent, smiles during the more dramatic parts of a pretty melodramatic song, and I wonder what the joke was that he was sharing at the moment, and with whom. It’s Mona Lisa all over again.
