You can shake an apple off an apple tree
Shake-a, shake- sugar,
But you'll never shake me
No-sir-ee, uh, uh
I'm gonna stick like glue,
Stick because I'm
Stuck on you

Gonna run my fingers thru your long black hair
Squeeze you tighter than a grizzly bear
Yes-sir-ee, uh, uh
I'm gonna stick like glue
Stick, because I'm
Stuck on you

Hide in the kitchen, hide in the hall
Ain't gonna do you no good at all
'Cause once I catch ya and the kissin' starts
A team o' wild horses couldn't tear us apart

Try to take a tiger from his daddy's side
That's how love is gonna keep us tied
Yes-sir-ee, uh,uh
I'm gonna stick like glue
Stick, because I'm
Stuck on you
Recorded: 1960/03/20, first released on single

Yes a very pleasant rocker that just could not miss and even had, what was to become virtually non existent in the coming years, exposure on television via Welcome Home Elvis.

A rather pedestrian release aka safe release; much in the same mold as "All Shook Up" & "Don't Be Cruel" rhythm wise. My personal preference would have been "Make Me Know It" with "Soldier Boy" buy hey, what do I know? Really doesn't matter, as anything released as his first record after his Army stint would have been a hit.

I like it, but it never blew me away. Pleasant rocker.

This uptempo and unique Rock 'N' Roll song is a true masterpiece and Elvis' renditions of it were all phenomenal.
The other sixteen songs that Elvis recorded that were co-written by Aaron Schroeder were "A Big Hunk O' Love", "Any Way You Want Me (That's How I Will Be)", "Apron Strings", "Dixieland Rock", "Don't Leave Me Now", "First In Line", "Good Luck Charm", "Got A Lot O' Livin' To Do", "I Got Stung", "I Was The One", "In Your Arms", "It's Now Or Never", "Santa, Bring My Baby Back (To Me)", "Shoppin' Around", "Young And Beautiful" and "Young Dreams".

I love this song, although Elvis hated it. Leslie McFarland is supposed to be a real character. Totally the opposite off Aaron Schroeder. I think it's better than All shook up, although it's clearly based on it.

This is such a fabulous and fun song and it rightfully was a #1 hit for Elvis here in the United States back in 1960. It's one of seventeen songs that Elvis recorded that was written by Aaron Schroeder.

This was the perfect choice for his first single back from the Army. A rocker similar to All Shook Up with an infectious beat but a bit lighter and as someone said, the music scene had become lighter. So here we have a bit of the old Elvis and the new Elvis, a perfect blend for a great pop/rock record. The only better choice may have been Girl Of My Best Friend which was really the type of song riding the radio at the time. I was glad it was Stuck On You.

Stuck on You being the 1st single after Elvis's return from the army was always going to be a big hit. Of course, better was to follow. Looking back at the other recordings around that time I think a better choice would have been 'Like a Baby' c/w Soldier Boy.

Elvis' first release out of the army was this nice, but tame rocker. A rock and roll song with no real edge to it, along the lines of "All Shook Up". This is not a knock against this type of song, but it pales as a rock and roll song when compared to "Little Sister", "Santa Claus Is Back In Town", "Jailhouse Rock", "A Big Hunk O' Love", etc. It should be noted that "Stuck On You" was by far the closest thing to rock and roll to hit number one in 1960. Since his number one hit "A Big Hunk O' Love" in the summer of 1959, the number one hits had been songs like "Mack the Knife", "El Paso", "Teen Angel", "Theme From A Summer Place". Elvis did not abandon rock and roll after the army, the record buying public did.

I like this one,i prefer all of his 1960 material above his 50's,this sounds fresh.

Pretty hard to sing...but with his vocal range Elvis could do no wrong delivering this classic !

I remember being disappointed when this was released as Elvis' coming home single back in 1960. It was obviously going to be a huge hit but it seemed tame in comparison to One Night, A Big Hunk o' Love and I need Your Love Tonight. Fairly mediocre really.

The comeback from the army could hardly be done with a better single than this one! The King at his best.
