I Can’t Stand Still is dedicated to the memory of my hero Elvis Presley. Elvis passed away on my 11th birthday, the 16th of August 1977; he has had a profound impact on my life. When I was five years old I was given my parents’ record player and their Elvis records, I couldn’t stop playing the King Creole album and a few years later discovered The Sun Sessions. This was the start my love of Elvis’ music and his work has had a major influence on my own songwriting.
R.I.P. Elvis Presley. January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977.
I Can’t Stand Still. There were two interviews in the 50s where Elvis Presley talks about rock ‘n’ roll and how he can’t stand still and I’ve used these quotes in the song, meaning that the lyrics are, in effect, written by Elvis. His sentiment and the words were perfect for a brand new rock ‘n’ roll song and so I wrote the music to accompany them.
The lyrics for I Can’t Stand Still are taken from following interviews:
The Truth About Me: August 29, 1956. Hollywood, California.
Elvis Sails: September 22, 1958. Brooklyn Army Terminal.
Many thanks to all the musicians involved. It has been a great privilege to work with you all.
