"Trying to get to you?"

Elvis mentioned it in the CBS special from 77.

"My dad likes it..you,know..but my voice was much higher then,you got to have the belt in the right place".

Or "From a Jack to a king" recorded by suggestion of Vernon.

At the Tupelo Fair, Vernon said he liked "That's All Right Mama" and then "Hound Dog" and several others that he couldn't remember the names of. He also liked the ones that Gladys said she liked which were Don't Be Cruel and another one that I can't remember the name of. Of course, that was early in Elvis' career so I don't know which one he liked best overall, including the later songs.

Vernon also liked Danny Boy and the Hawaii Wedding Song. Vernon liked many songs of Elvis. He liked almost every song that Elvis recorded in 76-77

In the outtakes of On Tour, Vernon says his favourite is An American Trilogy.

:newyear: Ah, yes. After the opening lines...

A water glass full of whiskey
And women that I never knew too well

...Elvis made some comment to the effect that it's no wonder he likes the song so much. :lmfao:
