No, it's obvious that Freddie wrote it.
First of all, Elvis didn't write this song. Second, he never sang it, because he was already dead before Freddie could write it.

I rememebr something similar appearing on QZ some years ago. There was a CD where a person with a voice similar to Elvi's covered some songs like Crazy Little Thing Called Love and Candle In The Wind.

Just repeat with me: Freddie wrote Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Freddie wrote Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Freddie wrote Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Freddie wrote Crazy Little Thing Called Love...

I recommend doing some research before posting things like this. I can't believe you really thought Elvis wrote the song. Guess there's one born every moment!

are you 100% sure it is Dwight Yoakam? He doesn't sound anything like Elvis! I didn't even listen to the uploaded track, but D.Y doesn't sound like Elvis. For those who don't know who Dwight is, he is a Country singer. I am suprised you all didn't know that Elvis came back from the crave 2 years later to help Freddie write this song! Freddie was sitting on Elvis's lap in the bathtub in Germany, that's how he got AIDS too! You all need to do your research! lol ;)

This is defenetely the Dwight Yoakam version which was officially released as part of the Levi Jeans Ad campain a few years ago.

This video is almost identical to the ad itself

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Xybr-nrZI4&search=dwight%20yoakam


And so according to the site rules, the megaupload link should be removed because -

1 - Its official http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00028HOP4/qid=1151599393/sr=2-1/ref=sr_2_11_1/203-9461313-2455953

and

2 - Its Dwight Yoakam murdering a Queen song WRITTEN BY FREDDIE. Nuff said.

Anyway,this song was a number 1 hit in the United States in 1980, it is really well known there, don't you think that the lawyers and relatives of Elvis would find out it's his song, and sue Queen for royalties?

Obviously this great song was written by Freddie.

OMG i found out the guys name its a guy called Dwight Yoakam looks like you were right then


And Dwight is a fucking country singer you evil bit of squash. And I'm offended you thought he was Elvis. And I'm offended you thought Elvis wrote it. How could you think Elvis wrote it?

Go shove your head up Dwight's ass.

He may not sound like Elvis to you, but he HAS recorded CLTCL, so it's far more likely to be him than a guy who died two years before the song was written.
