Elvis Presley - (Marie's the Name) His Latest Flame

I couldn't decide which Elvis track to post first, there's so many I want to post.
So I've gone back to 1961 for (Maria's the Name) His Latest Flame. 
The song reached UK no 1 and US No2
It was originally recorded by none other than Del Shannon.


  1. You know, it's never really a bad day for Elvis. It's been a while, thanks for posting!

  2. Video blocked here in Germany due to some copyright/licensing bs, however i know the song well (i grew up with a big Elvis fan: My Mum lol)

    The Smiths do a cool little version of this on thier live album "Rank" (as an intro to 'Rusholme Ruffians') its worth checking out if ya aint heard it

    Nice blog btw :)

  3. When I searched You Tube for this video I found the Smiths version, I never knew they covered it!! Shame they didn't do a complete version of the song.
