The meanest girl in town

The song was recorded on 16 june 1964 by Bill Haley with the title "Yeah she's evil" while Elvis recorded his version on 10 june 1964. The version by Bill Haley is not exactly an original version but was released earlier then Elvis' version.

Thanks for the info !

It's doubtful Bill Haley was even aware of the Elvis version, or even heard it before recording his.

Maybe Bill Haley digged up a demo version somewhere?
