Alannah Myles [born December 25th 1955 in Toronto, Ontario] is a Canadian singer-songwriter. In 1989, she released her self-titled debut album, Alannah Myles. In 1990 Black Velvet, a single taken from that album, topped the Billboard Hot 100, and was also a hit in four other countries, including her native Canada and Australia.
Black Velvet is a rock and roll song written by Canadian musicians David Tyson and Christopher Ward. First recorded by Canadian singer Alannah Myles in 1989, it became a Number One on the Billboard Hot 100 in March of 1990 and reached number one in Canada and number two in the UK Singles Chart. The words \"black velvet\" refer to either Elvis himself [as his likeness is usually painted on a black velvet canvas] or his voice. Black velvet is described as a, \"new religion that\'ll bring y\'all to your knees\". The chorus tells of \"black velvet in that little boy\'s smile/ Black velvet with that slow, Southern style\" and the end of the first verse claims that \"The boy could sing, knew how to move, everything\", and that \"he\'d leave you longing for [black velvet]\". While the first verse discuss the beginning of Elvis\' career - \"Mama\'s dancing, baby on her shoulders\" - the second talks about the height of his career - \"Mama\'s baby, is in the heart of every schoolgirl; Love Me Tender leaves \'em crying in the aisles\". The final verse references his death - \"in a flash he was gone; it happened so soon\".
