About Maurice "Mashie" Mysels

Songwriter: Wrote " I Love You, I Need You, I Want You" which was sung by Elvis Presley.

"I Want You, I Need You, I Love You" is a popular song written by Maurice Mysels and Ira Kosloff.

It is best known for being Elvis Presley's second RCA single release. It was released in May, 1956 becoming Presley's second #1 single on the Country charts, and peaking at #3 on the Billboard Top 100 pop singles chart, an earlier version of the Billboard Hot 100.


Before the creation of the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1958, there were a number of charts including Jukebox plays, Store charts, and Airplay charts. The song reached #1 on the Billboard Top Sellers in Stores chart, and is therefore sometimes wrongly assumed to be a #1 single in its own right

The Mysels' boys were songwriters and it seems that they collaborated on a total of 70 songs as far as I can see.

The most famous was the Elvis song " I Love You, I Need You, I Want You"
