Ray Dorset, who was the lead vocalist for Mungo Jerry, wrote this for Elvis Presley, who was one of his idols. Unfortunately, Elvis' untimely death ruled this out and the song ended up as the B-side of a Mungo Jerry single released in France. In the book 1000 UK #1 Hits
by Jon Kutner and Spencer Leigh, Dorset explains: "I wrote Feels Like I'm In Love in 1977 with Elvis Presley in mind and even recorded it Elvis-style on my demo. My producer, Barry Murray, was about to send it to Elvis when he got a phone call saying Elvis had died. After that, I kinda put it to bed for a while. Kelly Marie had a few minor hits in France and had been hanging around our office a bit. I thought she had a good voice, so I asked her if she wanted to record the song."
