I'm looking for the title of a 1950s song I heard recently at a car show. I must have misheard the lyrics because I can't find a song with the title of Elvira. That's what it sounded like to me. Elvira, Elvira. It was sung by a male singer, and it was kind of slow, not a rock and roll song. Along the lines of something the Skyliners would do, but it wasn't them. Guy sounded somewhat like Paul Anka.
Heard it again at the same car show, 2 years later. The song? Venus (1959) by Frankie Avalon.
The part that sounds like "Elvira, Elvira" is actually the opening lyric "Hey Venus, Oh Venus."
