"Elvira" - it was the Oak Ridge Boys who made it famous. As the story goes, a song plugger for Acuff Rose Music named Ronnie Gant heard a bar band in Texas singing “Elvira,” and thought it’d be perfect for Bonsall’s and Sterban’s voices. He took the idea to their producer, Ron Chancey, and the Boys recorded it in a couple of takes.
