Writing and recording

The song was written by Fred Wise and Randy Starr.[2][3][4][5] [6][7][8] The song was published by Elvis Presley's company Gladys Music, Inc.

Elvis Presley recorded his vocals for the song (over an earlier-recorded backing track) on October 10 (or possibly in the early morning of October 11), 1963.[9][10]

Release history

The song was first released as a single on February 10, 1964, with "It Hurts Me", a non-movie song, on the opposite side as RCA Victor 47-8307.

"Kissin' Cousins" peaked at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100.[11][12] [8] ("It Hurts Me" also charted, peaking at number 29.)

The song's first LP release was in March 1964 on the Kissing Cousins soundtrack LP (LPM-2894 in mono and LSP-2894 in stereo).[13]

On March 27, 1992, the single "Kissin' Cousins / It Hurts Me" was certified Gold by the RIAA for selling over 500,000 copies.[14]

Critical reception

Reviewing the single "Kissin' Cousings / It Hurts Me" in its February 15, 1964 issue, Billboard called the two songs "[t]wo more contenders for chart honors from Elvis."[1]

First side is from forthcoming film and features good middle tempo rock with voices and guitars in support.[1]
