Just Pretend-When i was living in London my friend has to go live in Brussels for a 2 month's and his girlfriend was very upset,i suggested he make a tape of their favourite songs for her,the last song on the tape i put this song,my friend was not a fan of Elvis but he thought this song was fantastic.They have now been married 8 years!!!
I Just Can't Help Believin'-I danced with my wife to this on our wedding night it is one of most favourite Elvis songs
Unchained Melody(June 77 version)-Elvis was so unwell but to watch and hear this with Elvis putting his all in to it makes the hair on my neck stand up
Memories-Anybody who has dated a true love can relate to this beautiful song

So many touching songs. Every time I hear them I get so sad thinking about Elvis` life. Even though I just love them all, my favorite is It`s Midnight! When ever I play it I just close my eyes and imagine him singing it. So powerful ! If you never noticed thats why I chose my name midnight!

03-27-2008, 10:43 AM
Elvis had a truly special gift at emoting a song - whether it be a serious song or a not so serious one and everyone has a favorite. I recall the first time being seriously moved by his music when I heard Bridge over Trouble Water - TTWII. I can recall seeing the perfomance and wanting to hear it again and again. I recently learned that when he first sung this on Aug. 10, 1970, he moved the audience as well as his back-up singers, to tears (I have not seen any film of this particuliar performance, though), in particuliar, Paul Simon, the author of this song. That's truly special!!! The only performance I have seen of TTWII is the one from the Dinner Show on Aug. 11th, the following night. I also read that each time he performed this song, he sang it a little bit different, but no less moving. But Bridge Over Trouble Water will always be my favorite, among so many!!!!!!


03-27-2008, 11:26 AM
The way he sang, "Husky Dusky Day", was very moving to me.

I think of two songs that could sum up Elvis' life.

-"Pieces Of My Life"

-"My Way"

Song's that expressed what he was going through is another thing.

-"Momma Like the Roses",

-"Separate Ways"

and believe it or not
I sometimes think his inner personality fit the song,

-"King Of The Whole Wide World".

There are sooooooo many moving Elvis songs... for me the most touching one is 'My Boy' it was the very first Elvis song I ever heard when I was a child- and it was during the time my parents got divorced :'(, so it will always have a special place in my heart & make me cry every time I hear it :'(.


03-27-2008, 01:09 PM
"In My Way"

03-27-2008, 01:16 PM

"Suppose","For Old Times' Sake","You Don't Know Me".

04-04-2008, 02:28 AM
I love "Always On my Mind" it really gets to me, it seems to reveal what is on his mind at the time, after his split from Pricilla.

04-05-2008, 10:56 PM
I'll Remember You - I love the MSG Afternoon version - as my daughter
would say "total bedroom voice!"
Do You Know Who I Am
Don't Cry Daddy :(
These three for sure, but there are many many more!
