"(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear"

"(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear" was a US number-one hit for Elvis during the summer of 1957, and his third of the four that he would have that year. The lyrics were by Kal Mann with Juliard-trained pianist Bernie Lowe doing the music. It was part of the soundtrack to Loving You. Here is Elvis, looking too cool (for school), in the very same film:

Gotta love that technicolor.
