Whether simply to maximize sales in every format, or in the belief that many teenagers either didn’t have a long-playing record player or wanted the individual sides at the lowest per-unit price, RCA simultaneously released seven 45s incorporating every one of Elvis’ songs not previously available on a single. None of the singles charted, but the combined sales figures totaled up to 1.5 million copies.

About The Song

“I Love You Because” was first recorded by Elvis Presley in 1954, at SUN Studio, Memphis, Tennessee. The session started on July 4 and ended early on the morning of July 5, the day that he recorded “That’s All Right”. Producer Sam Phillips did not think “I Love You Because” was the right song for Elvis’s first single, but it was instead used as the B-side of “Tryin’ to Get to You”, both of which can be found on his 1956 debut album Elvis Presley.

(words & music by l. payne)
I love you because you understand dear
Every single thing i try to do.
You’re always there to lend a helping hand, dear.
I love you most of all because you’re you.

No matter what the world may say about me,
I know your love will always see me through.
I love you for the way you never doubt me.
But most of all i love you ’cause you’re you.

I love you because, because my heart is ligther
Honey everytime, everytime i’m walking by your side
And i love you, yes i love you because the future is a little bit brighter
And the door, the door of my happiness, you open wide

No matter what may be the style or season,
I know your heart will always be true.
I love you for a hundred thousand reasons,
But most of all i love you ’cause you’re you.
