Yeah my voice does sound a bit like Elvis Presley’s. That wasn’t something I was trying to do, naturally. Pure coincidence. It’s all sung rather low and then you soon come close to Elvis, especially with such a 50s type song. I don’t mind telling you that my girlfriend thought it was a cover song. But that is absolutely not true.
