"JUST PRETEND" THE POWER AND STRENGTH OF INTERPRETATION.

 


"JUST PRETEND"  THE POWER AND STRENGTH OF INTERPRETATION.


 A heartbreaking love song that transports us to Elvis' feelings, with his powerful voice and the devastating force of his interpretation.




 The year was 1970. The song "Just Pretend" shows us an Elvis at the peak of his career.  His ego at the moment gave him a break, after the success achieved in Las Vegas, after his return to the stage the previous year.  Elvis now felt self-confident, and he is relatively well physically, although his personal, emotional, and marital problems were still present.  But he was still at a moment in his life where he could breathe easy , even if it was that dirty Las Vegas air, as he said.




When Elvis plays this song, a sweet piano introduces us to the beautiful melody of a ballad in which Elvis is going to express all his feelings about a love that is gone, but that continues to exist without being real, only pretending.. .




A love song, perfect for her powerful voice, whose lyrics soberly focus on the desire to be with the person you love: "Just pretend, I'm holding you, and whispering things soft and low" and with the pain of regret: "Oh, it's funny but I can't recall the things we said or why you're crying. But now I know it was wrong to go, I belong here by your side".




 The song builds to a crescendo as your heart shrinks, feeling its sorrow, its sadness, climaxing to intimidation and even rage.  Elvis's voice is powerful, energetic and mature.  Giving a convincing, suggestive and seductive result to the listener.  The arrangements are sweet and delicate.  And that ending that decreases, sinking us even deeper into his rage and his pain.



 Elvis recorded this song on June 6, 1970, at the June 4-8 studio sessions for RCA, at RCA's Studio B in Nashville.

 It was composed by Guy Fletcher and Doug Flett.

 Arrangements by Cam Millons were added.




The song was first released on the That's the Way It Is album in November 1970, and was also included in the documentary film of the same name.


 A beautiful song, with a bitter taste.  A magnificent interpretation with the soul of Elvis crossing our ears and our entrails, with the overwhelming force of him.



"I belong here by your side

 Yes... I will come flying to you, oh yes!

 all the crying is true

 I will hold you and love you again

 But until then

 We'll just pretend."
