"Don't Play Your Rock 'n' Roll to Me" is a song by British rock band Smokie. It was released in early September 1975 as a single and appeared later on the album Changing All the Time. Like the band's previous two singles "Pass It Around" and "If You Think You Know How to Love Me", the song was composed by Nicky Chinn / Mike Chapman.

The acoustic guitar riff in "Don't Play Your Rock 'n' Roll to Me" is believed to be adopted from the Elvis Presley hit "His Latest Flame".[1]

The single was as successful as the previous one. It debuted in the UK Singles Chart on 4 October 1975, reaching #8 and lingering in the charts for 7 weeks.[2]
