A.A. Euler is an anagram of Aura Lee, an American Civil War tune, used as the melody for Elvis Presley's (singer and coauthor) Love Me Tender, the solution to the current puzzle.
Looking up Aura Lee in Wikipedia we find that it was originally published, in the 1860's, as Aura Lea, hence my reference to the final A rather than a final E. Only no good anagram could be found for Aura Lea.
The 1956 song "Love Me Tender" puts new words to a new musical adaptation of the Civil War song "Aura Lee," published in 1861. "Aura Lee" had music by George R. Poulton and words by W. W. Fosdick. It later became popular with college glee clubs and barbershop quartets. It was also sung at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York.
The principal writer of the lyrics was Ken Darby, who also adapted Poulton's Civil War tune, which was in the public domain. The song was published by Elvis Presley Music. and credited to Presley and Darby's wife Vera Matson. Presley received co-songwriting credit due to his Hill & Range publishing deal which demanded songwriters concede 50 percent of the credit of their song if they wanted Presley to record it; Presley had songwriting input on only a very small number of the many songs he recorded When asked why he credited his wife as co-songwriter along with Presley, Darby responded, "Because she didn't write it either."
The list of performers near the end of the article is extensive, but suffice it to say, Elvis is the best known singer of Love Me Tender.
It's interesting that this article spells the Civil War era song as Aura Lee, though the Wikipedia article on that song is titled Aura Lea.
