can be anagrammed into a name of a song widely known in the fifties.
Identify the song/author/performers.
The song to be identified is "Love Me Tender". Elvis Presley is credited as the co-author, though he did not co-author the song. The co-authorship was but a business arrangement. The author of "Love Me Tender" is Vera Matson, a pseudonym for Ken Darby and the name of Darby's wife.
Following Elvis Presley, other recording artists that sang "Love Me Tender" include Connie Francis, The Platters, Tony Bennet, Marty Robbins, Kenny Rogers, Englebert Humperdinck, Paul Anka, Ray Caniff, The Lettermen, Linda Ronstadt, and Frank Sinatra.
As Charlie posted, the original version of the song, having different lyrics, was given the title "Aura Lea", written by George R. Poulton. Other titles have since be used for the song: "The Maid with the Golden Hair" and "When the Blackbird in the Spring" -- both alternative titles being excerpts of the original lyrics.
As Charlie also had stated, the song was sung at the U.S. Military Academy of West Point. In fact, prior to the Civil War. But like "Love Me Tender", the graduation song was given different lyrics. The version of the song was written by L. W. Becklaw and titled "Army Blue", also known as "The Violet".
