Frankie and Johnny - Parte 2

8. Down by the Riverside / When the Saints Go Marching In (Bernie Baum / Bill Giant / Florence Kaye) - Muitos não gostam desse medley com músicas tradicionais. Eu penso de forma diferente, acho de uma alegria contagiante, inclusive por parte de Elvis Presley, que parece estar se divertindo como nunca! Além da animada performance temos que dar o braço a torcer pelas próprias canções, que são maravilhosas. Embora tenham sido creditadas a esse trio no disco, eles nada mais fizeram do que apenas adaptar as canções para Elvis e o filme. "Down by the Riverside", por exemplo, era dos tempos da guerra civil e "When the Saints Go Marching In" é uma canção católica composta originalmente em tempos imemoriais.

9. Shout It Out (Bernie Baum / Bill Giant / Florence Kaye) - Outra boa canção da trilha sonora. No filme Elvis surge apresentando a música com uma roupa escura no velho estilo do sul, que em um bom exercício de imaginação, até mesmo antecipa algumas de suas mais famosas jumpsuits dos anos 70.

10. Hard Luck (Ben Weisman / Sid Wayne) - Mais uma composição do Ben Weisman. O ritmo é de blues, com Elvis a cantando ao lado de um garoto negro do filme, mandando ver em sua gaita de bolsa (na verdade dublando o talento de Charlie McCoy). Apesar de sempre ser um prazer renovado ouvir Elvis cantando blues essa faixa é prejudicada por ser Hollywoodiana demais. A letra pelo menos é até bem escrita, fugindo de maiores banalidades. No geral podemos dizer que é apenas mediana, além de curta demais.

11. Please Don't Stop Loving Me (Joy Byers) - Joy Byers durante essa fase da carreira de Elvis foi responsável por alguns dos melhores momentos das cambaleantes trilhas sonoras do cantor. Aqui está de volta, só que ao invés de escrever algum pop mais agitado optou por uma balada romântica. Considero um dos momentos mais fracos da trilha por apelar demais para clichês - tanto do ponto de vista de arranjos como de letra. A cena do filme é fraca, pois Elvis a canta de uma janela do barco (o cenário aliás não é muito convincente, mostrando toda a falta de capricho na produção do filme, que sendo bem sincero é B demais para que nos importemos com ele).

12. Everybody Come Aboard (Bernie Baum / Bill Giant / Florence Kaye) - A trilha sonora se encerra com essa boa "Everybody Come Aboard", com muitos metais e arranjo ao velho estilo de New Orleans. Sem acompanhamento vocal marcante, contando praticamente apenas com Elvis nos vocais é uma boa despedida para "Frankie and Johnny". Bem melhor do que muitas canções ruins que ele teve que enfrentar por essa época.

Frankie and Johnny (1966) - Elvis Presley (vocais) / The Jordanaires (backing vocals) / Eileen Wilson (vocais) / George Worth (trumpete) / Richard Noel (trombone) / John Johnson (tuba) / Gus Bivona (saxophone) / Scotty Moore (guiarra) / Tiny Timbrell (guitarra) / Charlie McCoy (harmonica) / Larry Muhoberac (piano) / Bob Moore (baixo) / D. J. Fontana, Buddy Harman (baixo) / Data de Gravação: maio de 1965 / Data de Lançamento: março de 1966 / Melhor Posição nas paradas: # 20 (EUA) # 11 (UK).

  2. Hard Luck

    Oh, I'm really feeling mighty low
    No, no, no, I got no place that I can go
    So I've got some blues to sing
    And oh, so much remembering, woe

    Black cats, keep away from me
    Take my advice, go shinning up a tree
    I got hard luck, the hardest kind a luck you'll find
    I ain't lyin', I've got the bluest kinda blues
    Drivin' me right outta my mind

    She's gone, said toodle-loo
    Kissed her goodbye and my, my, my money too
    I've got hard luck, the hardest kinda luck you've seen
    I mean, the way I'm runnin' lately
    My lucky number is thirteen

    Where do I belong, everything I do is wrong
    All wrong, wrong as can be
    Who's stacking all the decks
    Lady luck has got the hex on me
    I'm on her knee da da da da

    Shove off, oh, I'm warning you
    This thing I caught, you know could be catchin' too
    I've got hard luck, the hardest kinda luck there can be
    Yes, siree, I guess hard luck always chooses
    Natural born losers like me, oh ah

    ---------------------------------------

    Please Don't Stop Loving Me

    Please don't stop loving me
    You were born just to be in my arms
    In my arms
    Please don't stop loving me
    Your lips were made just to be kissed by me
    Kissed by me

    When I'm with you
    I don't know day from night, wrong from right
    You are my world, that's all I know
    I love you so, I won't let go

    Please don't stop loving me
    Darling you'll always be mine alone
    Mine alone

    ---------------------------------------
