Erik Charlette (some unknown liar) said Elvis performed CLTCL then Queen did it after. He said he heard it. What a liar. I hate it when people have to lie about things like this.

In fact, here's what he wrote.......
"The first time I heard this song. Queen was singing it. I thought no one else would be good at it like Queen did it. But when I heard Dwight Yokam singing it. I thought he actually did a better job on the song then Queen did. I have heard three versions of this song it was first done by Elvis Presley then by Queen now by Dwight Yokam."

Go to the bottom of this link.... e-mail him and tell him who really wrote it (click his name)

Then this idiot says it's an Elvis song, but the Queen version kicks ass too.

I'm going insane here. Someone on some 'exercise' site said the Elvis remake 'Crazy Little Thing Called Love' is a good song to exersize to. I'm going mad. I'm going to join that forum just to reply to her.

You know, I'm sure Freddie would've been flattered.

The first 4 or 5 times, anyway.

After that, he could afford to have the people making such claims shot. And rightly so.

this song is only written by the king
of rock n roll FREDDIE MERCURY.
HE WROTE IT IN HIS BATH WAY BACK IN ’79.
that is the only truth and was a little
TRIBUTE to Elvis Presley.
goodnight.

It may sound like an Elvis song, but it is most definitely Freddie's creation.

I often warrant why Freddie wrote the lyrics: "Liar, oh everybody deceives me". After reading this, I wonder if he foresaw something like this?

surley the most important point is that CLTCL was written in 1979, AFTER Presley died (in 1977 I I believe!?!?!)

The things people worry about.
Who cares?
Freddie at least wrote songs. Elvis didn't have much to do with songwriting. The King and Queen of Rock & Roll are probably laughing about it in the afterlife while poking fun at another moronic thread on QZ.

So, They're Saying Elvis Was In The Tub With Fred when He Wrote It?

God knows it would be the first song Elvis ever wrote if it were true! Bwwaaa haaa, haaa, haaa, haaa, haaaaaaaaaaaa!!! He was great...but not that great! All it did was record and perform OTHER PEOPLE'S SONGS!!! LOSER!

On those counts I agree, TQ...

Although, I've heard some rather mediocre singing by Elvis.

What about pianist?


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

It is annoying how someone who has so little to do with creating the songs sold so many records. He was great don't get me wrong...but he had as much to do with his recordings as...I don't know...Cher. And she's great and a classic as well you know...in her own way. I suppose he did do some chops on some instruments so I guess I will also have to give him that!
