I've always liked
Black Velvet by Alannah Miles(y) ,and I have a soft spot for Lisa Marie Presley's Nobody Noticed It....:D

I also like Went to See the Gypsy by Bob Dylan, Singing With Angels by Suzi Quatro, and Elvis Presley Blues by Jimmy Buffett (he wasn't the first to do this, I can't remember who was off the top of my head, Gillian Welch maybe?) , and these 2 aren't really about Elvis but they mention him and they are fun songs...Elvis Ain't Dead by Scouting for Girls and Real Good Looking Boy by the Who.

Hey Hound Dog Man by Roy Orbison. I also like Advertising Space by Robbie Williams. I've seen Suzi Quatro sing her song Singing with Angels live. She's great. and i like Lisa Maries Nobody Noticed it.

"JD, tell them that they are "faaaaaaaaannnnnnnntastic".

A beautiful, and loving tribute, from JD Sumner:

"I want to dedicate this to my brother/buddy who still lives in this old house".

Another song about E: "I Remember Elvis Presley" by Danny Mirror. Not the best at all but quite good.

Dire Straits - "Calling Elvis"..

All these tributes prove Elvis' music did bring something! :D

This is easily my favorite. So much so that I did a clip to it. I features Elvis' friends and acquaintances who,like him, have passed on. They say Roy was so emotional when he recorded it he had trouble finishing it.

I love the Bryan Adams song to elvis..now that is pretty cool.

Old friend: that always brings tears to my eyes listerning to that song.

This is the first tribute song after Elvis' death, and it is still one of the best IMO. I did this video with the song....:blush:
