A Cozy Tribute To Elvis — 10 Comments

  1. A fun post about Elvis and your hero. Elvis remains my favorite singer of just about any style song. I had all his vinyl, now I have all his CDs. Picking a favorite song is like picking a favorite child, but I like Love Me Tender for his love songs and The Trilogy. I can’t think right now if it had another title. Three songs included were Dixie, His Truth is March On and, one more that I can’t remember. Too early in the morning and too late in life. I have it on CD. Liked In the Ghetto too. Ah well, the list could go on and on. I’ll bet your books are a bit hit and I wish you the best with them. Thanks for reminding me of Elvis this morning.

    • Velda, it’s always a good time to talk about Elvis. I have the American Trilogy on CD too. I should dig that out soon and play it. I plan on watching “King Creole” this weekend. A lot of talent in that man.

  2. I loved Elvis music. My favorite songs came out of a couple of his movies such as Blue Hawaii and Follow That Dream. I loved that song but perhaps it was because I had a dream I wanted to follow. Gotta love that talented man.

  3. Sandy, looks like your hands are full again with murder and those Elvis’ impersonators, but I’m sure you’ll survive for another caper(Let me be your Teddy Bear). Congrats Sally, I’m looking forward to the read. I enjoyed the post. augie

    • Thanks, Augie. A high school teacher in my town is also a professional Elvis tribute artist. I attended one of his outdoor concerts. I was seated in a lawn chair and he stood over me and sang in my face! Way cool.

  4. When I was a college freshman in East Texas, nine of us piled into one car and drove to Shreveport, LA, to see Elvis at the Louisiana Hayride. This was early in his career, but he was already very popular in the South. We sat on the first row and screamed and carried on like the young idiots we were, but he loved it and laughed and played mostly to us. I still adore “You Ain’t Nothin’ but a Hound Dog” and the hip swiveling from that night. Afterward, we went backstage and met him. He chatted with us, signed autographs, and a couple of us were nervy enough to kiss him (yes, I was one & yes, it was). It was an adventure I’ll never forget.

  5. Nice morsel to whet the appetite for a nice Elvisy slice of glamour and fun. Thanx, Sally. It’s a must-read now for me. 🙂
