Elvis Presley’s “The Wonder of You” hit #1 in the U.K. In the United States, both songs charted at #9 together in the spring of 1970; also reached number 37 on the US Country Singles chart, and number one on the easy listening chart.
“The Wonder of You” was one of his most successful records in the UK ever, topping the UK Singles Chart for six weeks in the summer of that year. It also stayed at number one in the Irish Charts for three weeks that same year. This was the 59th Top 40 hit of his career.
“The Wonder of You” was one of about thirty-five songs Elvis would regularly perform at concerts.
According to the original performer, Ray Peterson, “He [Elvis] asked me if I would mind if he recorded ‘The Wonder of You.’ I said, ‘You don’t have to ask permission; you’re Elvis Presley.’ He said, ‘Yes, I do. You’re Ray Peterson.'”
