Need help picking a song to dance with my Mother with during my wedding reception. She is a big Elvis Presely fan, so anything along those lines would work, but I don't listen to his music, so I wouldn't know where to start.

Please help!

Somewhere around 1997 Elvis did an
album of cover songs. From what I
understand, he was testing the waters;
hoping to revive his career.
Anyway, one of the songs was "MMMBOP"
originally by Hanson.
It's a toe tapper and will most certainly cause
you to want to shake your groove thing.

I've seen it for sale on Amazon..

Considering that he'd been dead for 20 years, that would have been a helluva feat.

Wow Elvis died in 1977 and he did an album in 1997?

Through the Years - (Kenny Rogers)

Open Arms - (Journey)

With Arms Wide Open - (Creed)
(a little unorthodox for a wedding, but good)

Finally- proof that Elvis is alive! Unfortunately, since he's covering Hanson songs, he must be brain-dead.....

Thanks to everyone who contributed. Yeah, I voted for Metallica, but the fiance wouldn't have it. Disturbed would have worked too, but I'd be dead before the honeymoon.

Looks like I'll be going with "What a wonderful world" by Louis Armstrong.
Link Posted: 5/10/2004 3:11:05 PM EST
I suspected there woulkd be a few skeptics regarding the
1997 Elvis cover album.
Here's proof.

Hanson didn't record the song until 1996. Ergo, Elvis couldn't
have "covered" it before then. You do the math.

If you wanna slow dance with her..

Play, Are You Lonesome tonight.. By Elvis.. you'll woo her for sure...

Superfreak.

or, in case you're looking for a REAL answer, "Bridge over troubled water", by Simon and Garfunkel. It was my wedding song.

As much as I like that song, it and stuff like "Going to the Chapel" make me think of stuff from movies like Good Morning Viet Nam and Full MEtal Jacket as they depict a store front or a bar fall pray to a bomb and explodes all over the screen.

Do some old Danzig-----Last Caress!!!!!!!!!!!

Lyrics:


Well i got something to say.
I killed a baby today and it doesn't matter much to me as long as it's dead.
Well i got something to say.
I raped your mother today and it doesn't matter much to me as long as she's spread.

Sweet lovely death, i am waiting for your breath.
Come sweet death. One last caress. Go!
Sweet lovely death, i am waiting for your breath.
Come sweet death. One last caress.

Well i got something to say.
I killed your baby today and it doesn't matter much to me as long as it's dead.
Well i got something to say.
I raped your mother today and it doesnt matter much to me as long as she's spread.

Sweet lovely death, i am waiting for your breath.
Come sweet death. One last caress.
One last caress sweet death.
One last caress sweet death.
oh oh oh oh!
oh oh oh oh!
whoa!
oh oh oh oh!
go!

Jus­t havin some fun with ya
