6. Elvira - The Oak Ridge Boys

elvira

´╗┐Elvira was performed by The Oak Ridge Boys and was released as a single in 1981. The song was written by Dallas Frazier and became the band's signature song and their biggest hit, reaching number one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

The song features a catchy chorus that repeats the name "Elvira" over and over again, as the lead vocalist expresses his infatuation with a woman who has caught his eye. The lyrics also contain humorous wordplay and double entendres, such as "My heart's on fire, Elvira" and "Giddy up oom poppa oom poppa mow mow."

Musically, "Elvira" is an up-tempo country song with a strong southern gospel influence. The track features four-part harmonies from The Oak Ridge Boys and is driven by a prominent bass line.

"Elvira" has since become a country music classic and has been covered by numerous artists. The song has also been featured in popular culture, including films and television shows. In 1982, the track won a Grammy Award for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.

The track can be found on their Fancy Free album.´╗┐
