    I got about 7-8 Elvis songs on my Ipod. My favorite is probably "Heartbreak Hotel".

    What are yours?

    I love me some All Shook Up but I always thought I had the words wrong because "shakin like a man on a fuzzy tree" just doesn't make much sense.

    I'd go with "Suspicious Minds"

    Heartbreak Hotel and Jailhouse Rock are my favorites. Oh he would have been 75 today.

    'In the ghetto' has been nominated the best of his songs ever. I find it difficult to give one I like most. 'Promised land', 'Wooden heart', 'Amazing grace' (gospel) ...

    Eeech. . . I could never take Elvis seriously. I tried to once. But, nope. Whenever he comes up, I press the "skip" button.

    Funny whenever I listen to Love Me Tender, I get the impression that my Dad is the one singing.
