BABY I DON'T CARE

Latest update on 12/07/2010

Artist: Elvis Presley
Author: Jerry Leiber/Mike Stoller
Label: RCA
Year: 1957

In his third film Jailhouse Rock. During the sessions for this movie, coauthors Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller had taken over the producer seat. Elvis didn't care, but the Colonel and Hill & Range Publishing got nervous with their song filter detoured. New songs could reach the King without passing through their hands first.

Covers:

1957:

Buddy Holly

1959:

Cliff Richard

1961:

Johnny Hallyday [as Sentimental]

1963:

Eddy Mitchell [as Sentimentale]

1973:

Bryan Ferry

1980:

Don McLean

1982:

Joni Mitchell

1999:

Billy Swan

2007:

Robert Gordon & Chris Spedding

Some of the covers as You're So Square (Baby I Don't Care). Took Elvis many takes to nail, mainly because of Bill Black struggling with a new (electric) Fender bass instead of his familiar acoustic double bass. Finally Elvis played the bass part himself.
