Go Back

Burning Love

Words & Music by Dennis Linde

Lord Almighty,
I feel my temperature rising
Higher higher
It's burning through to my soul

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

Ooh, ooh, ooh,
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

Cause your kisses lift me higher
Like a sweet song of a choir
And you light my morning sky
With burning love

It's coming closer
The flames are reaching my body
Please won't you help me
I feel like I'm slipping away
It's hard to breath
And my chest is a-heating

Lord Almighty,
I'm burning a hole where I lay
Cause your kisses lift me higher
Like the sweet song of a choir
You light my morning sky
With burning love
With burning love
Ah, ah, 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

Dennis Linde composed Burning Love for Elvis, who recorded the song at RCA's Hollywood studios on March 28, 1972. Linde played guitar on the recording. Burning Love reached #2 during its 15-week stay on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. Only Chuck Berry's My Ding-A-Ling kept Elvis from having yet another number one record. Burning Love reached #9 on the Easy-Listening chart. On October 27, 1972, the RIAA certified the record as a million seller. An April 1972 concert performance of Burning Love was shown in the documentary Elvis On Tour. Elvis also sang it in his 1973 TV special, Elvis, Aloha From Hawaii. Some have reported that Elvis may have recorded a sequel to Burning Love titled Burning Love Nยบ. 2, but no proof has come forward.
