All Of Elvis' Music Is Great. But Do You Remember The First Time You Heard An Elvis Song On He Radio And Thought This Man Is Amazing And Your Elvis Love Affair Began.
My Song Is Suspicious Minds. It Played On The Radio And It Blew Me Away I Then Went Out And Bought "from Elvis In Memphis Album". It Is Still My Favourite Elvis Album Today.
Lets Share Stories Of Our Love For Elvis!!!!!

My first song was "Return to Sender" but I was only a little girl, it was fun, going to the letter box and singing, thinking of Elvis, loving him. I also loved "Suspicious Minds" and so many others, so, so many. The little money I had, I bought Elvis' albums, he was the only artist of whom I had bought more than one album.
As a woman, the songs flow and blend, as I flowed into him nearly three years ago.

"Hound Dog" for me.
The first song that I heard that made me an Elvis fan was not an Elvis song. "Hound Dog" is more or less, the first Elvis song I've heard.
Yay! 100th post.

I really can't remember the very first song I ever heard.Like I said before I was only 3 when I first got into him.I believe it was She's Not You or Hound Dog.And ever since it's been my life long dream to make sure his memory goes on forever.
I'm DIE-HARD ELVIS TIL MY TIME ON EARTH IS THROUGH.

The first Elvis song I heard was "That's Alright,Mama" but it didn't actually made me fall in love with him...The song that made me fall in love with Elvis was "Suspicious Minds".

The first song sung by Elvis that I recall hearing was Suspicious Minds from his "Vegas to Memphis" LP, so its always been one of my favorite as would be "Do You Know Who I Am?"; however, the LP with "Burning Love" was my first LP of my OWN. I also remember hearing and loving "My Way".

TTWII movie made me an Elvis fan (25 years ago) and I was hooked forever, especially the songs Suspicious Minds and Polk Salad Annie which are my favorite songs untill this very day (y)(y).
01-03-2009, 08:38 AM
My first song was CRYING IN THE CHAPEL listen to her and inspired love in me to the instant.
01-03-2009, 10:10 AM
Suspicious Minds did it for me :D:lol::blush:
01-03-2009, 10:16 AM
The first Elvis song I heard was "Patch it up".
01-03-2009, 10:33 AM
The first song I heard Elvis sing was That's All Right Mama but it wasn't the song that caught my attention, it was his voice....and that was enough.:D
01-03-2009, 10:33 AM
I listened to music at a very young age on my parent's stereo. I wasn't in school and I wasn't able to read yet, but I learned to identify what songs I wanted to play by recognizing the label and number of words. There were 3 songs that I played all day long..all the time. "Bossa Nova Baby"...."Good Luck Charm" and...."Tell Him" by The Exciters(how many remember them?)!:lol:(y)(y)(y)
I still love all 3 of those songs!:D

I really don't remember the first song from him what I heard, maybe it was "Love Me Tender" when I was a little girl. But I do remember that "The Wonder Of You" did it to me (made me fall in love with him) in the TTWII movie.
01-03-2009, 04:23 PM
the very first song that i heard from him was when i was 5 and i accidently turn the channel on the tv to see him in the aloha from hawaii startingto sing see see rider.
01-03-2009, 05:47 PM
probably Return to Sender seeing it was the song i sang to my kindergarten class mates when i was asked what i wanted to be when i grew up. My teacher told me i had to do a song.
01-03-2009, 05:49 PM
or it could have been One Night, i played it till the sound was gone from it. Guess i'm glad i chose return to sender to sing, i don;t think my teacher would have thought One Night was a good song for a 5 year old to know.
In 90s, I'd seen a tv advert on a Turkish tv channel, with It's Now or Never as the soundtrack of the commercial. I thought to myself 'whoever this singer is, he sounds so sensual' . But that was about it :blush:
Then, maybe months later, when I was in a music shop, I saw this picture of Elvis in a red top, with his shiny black hair.. I remember thinking that I've not seen this man before.. But I loved the way he looked so I bought the cassette.
When I played the cassette and came across that song I'd heard on tv commercial before, I was suprised of course, that I'd found who that singer was..
And then inevitable happened.. I became an Elvis fan:D
01-07-2009, 02:34 PM
Just tell her Jim said Hello did it for me, I played it over and over again.
01-11-2009, 02:37 PM
Burning Love, though All SHook Up Got me obsessed.
01-11-2009, 06:17 PM
Heartbreak Hotel, then Mistery Train and at last Johnny B. Goode (from EOT). :clap:

I was only 11, and I was at the theater watching "Speedway", so the song that stayed with me - and I can still sing all the words:D- is "You're Time Hasn't Come Yet". That scene of Elvis with the little girl probably cemented the deal for me. My other favorite song was Little Egypt.
Of course, now I have a better selection - Paralyzed and Just Pretend
01-13-2009, 12:12 PM
I think it was tryin to get to you or one night(from 68 comeback special)
01-13-2009, 01:26 PM
'if i can dream'. I specifically remember when we went to Graceland and at the end when we were around the meditation garden, if i can dream was played, i tried to rewind it but i couldn't. I knew then, i would be a fan.
01-13-2009, 02:27 PM
I actually caught Elvis's 'Love me tender' movie on TV when I was four
years old and I really liked it. My mom bought me a record and it was
puppet on a string 45rpm and it's the first song I loved of Elvis's
01-13-2009, 05:50 PM
Moody Blue on the radio (1977)
I was 7 years then.
01-14-2009, 08:04 AM
Love Me Tender.
01-14-2009, 10:07 AM
I don't know what the first song I heard of Elvis' was. Before I went to Graceland and before I became a fan, I had heard of him and knew of a couple songs. But after going to Graceland where they blast his music at you it was Can't Help Falling in Love that I couldn't get out of my head and that song lead me to buy a CD with it on it which lead to everything else that I have and became a fan.
