So I've got family over (aunt, uncle, uncle's gf) and they've been having a fight over what the meaning of this song is. I, my father, my aunt, and my uncle's gf all say it's about Elvis. My uncle on the other hand, is emphatic it's NOT about Elvis, it's about Black Velvet whiskey based on the line, "Black velvet if you please." He's denying denying denying everything put in front of him, claiming he knows the song inside out, etc. He also can't fathom 2 guys singing a song about Elvis that would be sung by a woman. I told him in fairness to him though I would pose the question to a group of music gurus who would know. So who's right? Is it about Elvis or is it about whiskey?
