Funny How Time Slips Away: A Nostalgic Look Back with Elvis

About The Song

Released in 1970 on his album “Elvis Country”, this song might not have the rock and roll energy of his earlier hits. But for those of us who’ve lived a bit longer, it strikes a deeper chord. It’s a song about lost love, the passage of time, and the bittersweet realization that things just aren’t the same anymore.

Think back to your younger days. Remember those first flings, the promises whispered under the moonlight, the unshakeable belief that this love would last forever? Elvis, in his smooth, soulful voice, gently reminds us of those feelings. He paints a picture of running into an old flame, someone you swore you’d love eternally. Now, they’re with someone new, and you can’t help but wonder where all those years went.

“Funny How Time Slips Away” isn’t a heart-wrenching ballad. It’s a contemplative look back, a moment of reflection where a smile tugs at the corners of your lips even as a tinge of melancholy sets in. It’s about acknowledging the past, the choices we made, and the way life has a funny way of unfolding – sometimes exactly as planned, sometimes taking an unexpected turn.

This song is for those afternoon drives down memory lane. It’s for reminiscing with old friends, sharing stories of loves lost and lessons learned. It’s a reminder that while time may slip away, the memories we create stay with us, woven into the fabric of who we are. So, put on your favorite pair of blue suede shoes, crank up the volume, and let Elvis take you on a journey through the years. You might just be surprised by what you find.
