An absolute gem this time. I was in town the other day and walked into a restaurant to hear this being fed out of the speakers. It instantly reminded me of a very drunken night when my friends and I came home from a night on the rip and stuck in one of Elvis’s greatest hits compilations, where we proceeded to dance our little cotton socks off around the kitchen.

One of my all time favourite songs.

the king – burning love
