Always liked his version of 'My Way' from his final concert.
He flubbed up his oldest most simple songs, however, he Nailed this one.

Elvis was and still is he King of Rock & Roll and probobly one of the best gospel singers i ever heard....And i was only 6 years old when he died, So i didn't grow up listening to him....

Well, I was 17 when he died, really did not care.
Guess as I matured a bit,  his music grew on me.
And then when i was mid 20's found out how Elvis corresponded with a little sick girl in a wheelchair.
One Christmas Eve he sent her a GIANT teddy Bear and the record of same name.
Kid died the next day.
Thought that was a cool thing he did and it made him seem human to me, not the fat old guy in the silly clothes!

Fountain of Love an absolutely beautiful "Spanish" style song,
brilliantly sung by the King.

My favorites are the first two, but my Wife is the ultimate Elvis Fan. No really, her Elvis obsession rivals my Gun Hobby. I mean the room I am in now is stuffed with professionally matted photos and original Elvis memorabilia. And for a thirty one year old, her knowledge of Elvis history and trivia is hard to rival.

In honor of Elvis, I'm gonna have to say "Can't help falling in love"

For some reason, I feel the need to watch "3000 miles to Graceland."

The Wife is/was shoulder surfing and says he best sang with JD Sumner and the Stamps Quartet. And though the Jordanaires were spectacular, she says nobody has a voice like JD and wanted me to post these for you.

A Little Less Conversation!
The King really did have a heart of gold. And he was a stand up guy. When he was drafted, he could have got out of it. He could have got special treatment. But not the king, hell no. He became a U.S.Army Scout. 1/35 Armor IIRC. He did his time with honor, went to the field with his unit, asked for and recived no special treatment. He was a Spearheader!
I was never that big a fan of his, I was more into the Rolling Stones. But when I served in the 3rd Armored Division, I learned what a special troop he was. I was told about when his unit went to Graff, and his manager rented him a house in town, he refused to stay in it, and slept in the field with everyone else. And when I was there the company dayroom in the barraks was still firnished with the stuff he bought. Pool tables, bar, jukebox, the walls were lined with his records. It was something to see. I gained a lot of respect for him, after learning what kind of soldier he was.
Not the typical Hollywood/Rockstar type who was drafted.
The King will always live!
The man himself

Where to start?!?

My husband and I danced to "Can't Help Falling in Love" at our wedding, so that's got a special place.  I also like the German one and despite 8 year of German lessons, I have no clue what he's saying.  "Devil in Disguise" is also way up there.

I'm not a huge Elvis fan but no one can deny his monumental presence in American music and culture in general. Rock and Roll really did need a "white man who can sing like a colored" to cross over and Elvis surely succeeded at that.

In 1996 I took a road trip to Memphis with my girlfriend to see Graceland.
I was expecting cheese but what I came away with was a much better sense of the humbleness of the man. He tried but the fame ruined him. I think it's the same syndrome we see with our contemporary stars.

If you ever get the chance, go. Elvis took the smokehouse and converted it to a backstop. E and the boys would hang out on the patio and shoot across the backyard into it. His gun collection is on display in the museum across the street.

Thank you very much...

Been friends with Sumner family for over 40 years..JD has passed and will be missed.  He held Guiness book of world records for hitting the lowest vocal bass note.

His nephew was my roomate for about a year..great singing family.

Elvis picked me up in his arms (I was 6) at a Southern Gospel concert in Atlanta Ga...I still have the polaroid.

A co-worker just showed me the new video of his daughter singing "In The Ghetto".  Much of the imagery is of a baby in a crib handling full sized handguns.
