History

The song was written by Aaron Schroeder and Ben Weisman.[1][2] The latter, a songwriter from New York, came (according to the book Elvis Day by Day, „presumably in hopes of seeing that his song, "Got a Lot O' Livin' to Do," [would] be included in the soundtrack“) to the recording studio in Hollywood where Presley was working on the songs for the movie.[3][4] Elvis Presley later recalled:

I looked at him, smiled, asked his name, and why he was in the studio. He said he was Ben Weisman, and he had composed the song "Got A Lot O' Livin' To Do". I hollered at the guys to come out and we started playing the song. After that day, Ben and I became really good friends and he would wind up writing fifty-seven songs for me. Funny how chance meetings end up![5]

No other songwriter wrote as many songs for Presley as Ben Weisman did.[4]

Reception

In Europe "Got a Lot o' Livin' to Do!" was released as a single with "Party" on the other side.[6] Both songs appeared on the UK Singles Chart (as published by the Official Charts Company): "Party" charted 15 weeks, peaking at number 2 for the week of October 10, while "Got a Lot o' Livin' to Do!" charted 4 weeks, peaking at number 17 for the week of October 24.[7]

The song is a sprightly,[8] speedy number[9] It's lyrics include the line: "There's a moon that's big and bright".[10]
