Burning Love Lyrics

Lord Almighty - I feel my temperature rising
Higher, higher - it's burning through to my soul                                                                                                                                                         Girl, girl, girl, girl - you gonna set me on fire
My brain is flaming - I don't know which way to go

Your kisses lift me higher - like the sweet song of a choir
You light my morning sky - with burning love

Ew Ew Ew - I feel my temperature rising
Help me, I'm flaming - I must be a hundred and nine
Burning, burning, burning - and nothing can cool me
I just might turn into smoke - but I feel fine'

Your kisses lift me higher - like the sweet song of a choir
You light my morning sky - with burning love

Break

It's coming closer - the flames are now licking my body
Won't you help me - feel like I'm slipping away
It's hard to breath - and my chest is a-heaving
Lord, have mercy I'm burning the hole where I lay

Your kisses lift me higher - like the sweet song of a choir
You light my morning sky - with burning love

I'm just a hunk, a hunk of burning love - Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love - Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love - Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
Just a hunk, a hunk of burning love

Burning Love Tips

Below is my Burning Love cover and on this song I'm using a Drop D tuning as I find the deeper D bass note helps to fill in the song when playing this type of rhythm. But drop D is always optional and not required. The other chords in this song are a G, A and a Bm.

The rhythm on this song is a steady up and down with using a typical rock and roll strum by playing the A string on the 2nd fret in conjunction with the D chord and the drop D note.

There is no lead work in this song, just straight rhythm.


Some Elvis Trivia about Burning Love

Elvis Presley first performed "Burning Love" on stage before it was officially released as a single. He debuted the song during his engagement at the Las Vegas Hilton in January 1972. The audience's response was so overwhelmingly positive that Elvis decided to record and release it as a single later that year.

The recording session for "Burning Love" took place on March 28, 1972, at the RCA Studios in Hollywood, California. The atmosphere during the session was energetic and enthusiastic, with Elvis and the musicians reportedly having a lot of fun recording the song. The studio musicians involved in the recording were known as the "A-Team," which included legendary guitarist James Burton.

"Burning Love" was recorded in just one take. Elvis's first take was so captivating that it was deemed the best, and no further takes were necessary. The spontaneous and energetic performance captured on that one take added to the song's raw and lively feel.

This track was Elvis Presley's last major hit on the pop charts during his lifetime. It reached number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, narrowly missing the top spot. The song also topped the Adult Contemporary and Hot Country Singles charts, showcasing its broad appeal across different genres.

 "Burning Love" played a significant role in Elvis's iconic "Aloha from Hawaii" concert special in January 1973. A remix of the song from the original studio recording was featured as the show's opening number. This remix version has a slightly different arrangement and was used to set the energetic and exciting tone for the concert.

Elvis's recording of "Burning Love" earned a Grammy Award nomination for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance in 1973. Though he didn't win the award, the nomination recognized the song's quality and the continued impact of Elvis's music on the popular music landscape.

"Burning Love" remains a fan-favorite and is often cited as one of Elvis Presley's best later-period recordings. Its upbeat and infectious energy has made it a timeless classic in the rock 'n' roll canon.
