Back in 2009, Ringo was asked by ABC News to list some of his favourite songs of all time. Starr baulked at listing a traditional top ten. “I love music,” Starr claimed. “You know, people say, ‘Your top ten.’ I don’t have a top 10; I have a top thousand or 2,000. Music has meant a lot, you know.” Still, Presley’s ‘Don’t Be Cruel’ was an easy pick for Starr.

“I was working in this factory, and I took this girl to the movies because I had no money,” he said. “The only seats left were two in the front, and we’re in the front row and, haha, [I was] trying to impress her in the front row. She worked in the office of the factory I worked in, and, anyway, the date didn’t go well. And I snuck up into her office, and on the dictaphone, I recorded ‘Don’t Be Cruel’. So that’s an important song. And Elvis was the best, Elvis the King.”

The Beatles never officially recorded an Elvis cover for any of their studio albums. Apart from a few covers that appeared on the Pop Goes The Beatles radio programme, The Beatles ultimately stayed away from covering Presley.
