Subject: Are You Lonesome Tonight - Elvis ad lib

Someone asked in another thread if there was an mp3 of this (in)famous incident where Elvis, while singing "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" in Las Vegas, noticed two "baldheaded" guys sitting near the front and spontaneously sang the song this way:

Elvis: Are You Lonesome Tonight" - Laughing version

I thought I should post it separately, since the other thread was about a parody version of AYLT.   This wasn't so much a parody as a mere ad lib of one couplet in the lyrics.

Apparently it tickled Elvis's funny bone.

Actually, what Elvis recorded (1960) was a lot closer to the original (1926) than what what the Carter Family sang (1936).

Elvis' 'laughing' version was actually put out as a single by RCA in the 70s
