I went to Graceland last spring and it was awesome

I went over five years ago and I agree with you there.

Hmm, hard to pick a favorite... Suspicious Minds, Can't Help Falling In Love, It's Now or Never, and Are You Lonesome Tonight are all favorites.

Elvis at his most beautiful and heartbreaking.

I was reading in the trivia section of the TV guide today that the BBC made strenuous efforts to recruit Elvis to appear on some music programme of theirs that I'd never heard of and he was approached many, many times to do the Royal Variety performance but Tom Parker always said no.

that's absolutely right Q1 I was talking about this only a few days a go with my mum and i actually said to her Elvis did want to do concerts here but it wasn't down to him - he was being too controlled by his manager&she was nodding in agreement saying yep, he did want to come here for longer but at least we have the claim to fame for him being here!

No fair about not doing some shows though mind you, i was too young to have seen him anyway!

Can't Help Falling in Love ....... melts my heart every time I hear it.

I have a downloaded version of Elvis singing Danny Boy. It truly is the most perfect vocal I have ever heard.

That's All Right Mama and Heartbreak Hotel.

I early Elvis.

Later Elvis had a few gems too, though. I love Hunk of Burning Love in all it's cheesy glory. I also love In the Ghetto (I think this was from his later years too?) He also did a beautiful cover of Unchained Melody.

I think he is at his most beautiful and heartbreaking in his late years.And i was so glad when someone around here said that!
As an E-fan since i was a kid, i know him very well,and it is almost impossible to choose between many well known and unknown songs. I"ll try:
Kentucky rain, Help me Jesus, His latest flame, Separate ways, Girl happy, BABY i dont care, Suspicious minds, Too long in the rain, If i can dream...it may end now, or i could go on forever
