What a sound! An unique tune. The king had such a powerful voice, make tunes like this perfect.
“I Got a Feeling in My Body” is a gospel-influenced song recorded by Elvis Presley in 1973. The song was written by Dennis Linde, who had also written several other songs for Elvis, including “Burning Love” and “Good Time Charlie’s Got the Blues.”
The song was recorded during the same sessions as Elvis’ 1973 album “Raised on Rock/For Ol’ Times Sake” at Stax Records in Memphis. “I Got a Feeling in My Body” was released as a single in 1974, but it didn’t chart.
The song starts off with a simple guitar riff and then builds up with a driving rhythm section and gospel-style backing vocals. Elvis’ vocals are passionate and soulful, and the song showcases his ability to blend rock and roll with gospel music.
“I Got a Feeling in My Body” has since become a fan favorite and is often included on compilations of Elvis’ gospel recordings. The song has also been covered by other artists, including Mark James and Aaron Neville.
