This thread confused me I was like "What, he came back from the dead to sing it? " Then I clicked it and was like "Oh, it's the other Elvis "

Anyhow, that was a pretty damn good performance

Also interesting was the Bjork link in the sidebar:

hey are you trying to derail my thread??!?!

just kidding.

yeah, i thought of trying to put something clever like "no, not that elvis" once you open the thread, but this forum already has enough cleverness.

I've chosen a song that really impressed me when I've heard it for the first time a few years ago.
I've wanted to sing it for long. It's the song Please from the album Pop by U2.
It's not on me to explain what the song means, I can only sing it and hope.. I think somehow it means... may I show it?
That's my guess (shows the cover of the single).
When I've seen this cover, the song intruded me more and more, more than necessary.
At first I only thought it was a beautiful song. Its construction attracted me, and I got to hear it a few times in concert. And it gained more and more depth.
I don't want to say any more about it, just (or but to) sing it.
This is what Elvis says in the second link.
