Song facts

From Wikipedia:

Glad All Over” is a 1957 song recorded by rock and roll and rockabilly artist Carl Perkins, “The Rockin’ Guitar Man“, at Sun Records in 1957. It was released as a 45 and 78 single, Sun 287, on January 6, 1958 (b/w “Lend Me Your Comb“). It was written by Aaron Schroeder, Sid Tepper, and Roy Bennett.

A performance of the song was featured in the 1957 film Jamboree, where Carl Perkins and his band perform the song in a recording studio in a scene similar to Elvis Presley’s studio performance in Jailhouse Rock along with Scotty Moore and Bill Black. The Carl Perkins band consisted of Carl Perkins on lead guitar and vocals, Jay Perkins on rhythm guitar, Clayton Perkins on upright bass, and W.S. “Fluke” Holland on drums, who later became the drummer for Johnny Cash, who called him “The Father of the Drums“.

Glad All Over” was the last single Carl Perkins released on Sun Records. The recording was also released as a 45 in the UK on the London Records label as 45-HLS 8527 backed with “Forever Yours” and appeared on the Warner Bros. soundtrack album for the movie Jamboree. The song was published by Magnificent Music, BMI. In 1978, Sun Records Corporation under owner Shelby Singleton re-released the song as part of the Sun Golden Treasure Series as Sun 24 with “Lend Me Your Comb” as the flipside.

The Beatles version

The Beatles recorded “Glad All Over” on two occasions in 1963 for BBC radio sessions, with George Harrison on lead vocals. The first of these, recorded on July 16, 1963, was released in 1994 on Live at the BBC.

On November 11, 2013, a second version recorded by The Beatles for the BBC Saturday Club radio program on July 30, 1963 appeared on the On Air – Live at the BBC Volume 2 collection. […]

Lyrics

Ain't no doubt about it this must be love
One little kiss from you
And I feel glad all over
Ooh baby
Hot dang dilly, it's silly
But I'm glad all over

Yeah the goosepimples baby 'cause I feel so good
When you call me like you do
And I feel glad all over
Ooh mercy
I'm rock gone pappy and I'm happy
And I'm glad all over

Your touch goes through me like electric wire
Never thought I'd make love
It don't take much looking to see what I've got
But it shows, yeah it shows

Come on honey bunny
Give me one more time
Every time you do
Well I feel glad all over
Ooh baby
Hot dang dilly, it's silly
But I'm glad all over
Yeah!

Tried to tell you how I'm cooking inside
When we're cheek to cheek
My temperature is low
Fever is high
I can't speak
I'm too weak

Well come on honey bunny
Give me one more time
Every time you do
Well I feel glad all over
Ooh baby
Hot dang dilly, it's silly
But I'm glad all over

Hot dang dilly, it's silly
But I'm glad all over
Well, hot dang dilly, it's silly
But I'm glad all over
