Wow Bonnie, you’re a seriously deep Elvis fan. I concur — you’ve gotta explore “Any Day Now” in a full-length Medium story. It’s such a pity that Glen Campbell never tackled “Any Day Now,” unless he cut it and it’s buried in a Capitol vault somewhere. There’s sadness and desperation within the lyrics of “Any Day Now,” and the upbeat music is a clever contrast. You believe that the narrator is gonna somehow win when those three minutes are up. When he lays everything on the table, that’s my favorite part — “I know I shouldn’t want to keep you, if you don’t want to stay-ay, until you go forever, I’ll be holding on for dear life, holding you this way, begging you to stay.”
