Agreed it should not be here, but must say I was very impressed with his yodelling prowess when I first heard it. Tried for years to do the same but never mastered it.
This is yet another song that's on the Elvis song list that shouldn't be on it. It's only a forgettable and awful rehearsal snippet. The only version of this song that I like is Eddy Arnold's.
If only Elvis fans had Elvis' humour.
It might be short and just Elvis goofing around but I like it for what it is. Nice yodelling. Or rather cattle calling.
Songs like this should not be song of the day, they are not real songs. Because ELvis is on tape for 25 seconds, it's a song? It's more like joke of the day. I can't listen to stuff like this.
wonder why he never got any requests of this particular song?..
Yes, Elvis could sing almost anything. But "Cattle Call" as song of the day? It's nothing more than a rehearsal snippet.
Here we have probably the most sincere person in the entertainment world. Not those fake smiles red carpet celebration entertainer of today.. When Presley was having fun it was for real and you could feel it. Sometimes we even hear him swear and he din't give a s... Elvis was true he was what he was and that's why i love him!
It shows Elvis can sing all kinds :p
This song was a big hit for Eddy Arnold. Elvis recorded a lot of songs that were Eddy's hits (ie 'You don't know me', 'Make the world go away' etc). With this song though, Elvis is just having fun during rehearsals. It's not a recording to be taken seriously, just an indication of what happened 'behind the scenes'. The original version is really good if you like this kind of music...
It's just Elvis having a little fun during rehearsals and was never meant for release.
These 25 seconds were actually listed as a "track" and released by BMG on a CD entitled "A Life In Music" ... what a life that must have been.
