View Full Version : If You Could Go Back In Time
08-26-2006, 01:48 PM
Today we were bored at work and we started to play:
If we would be able to go back in time and go whenever we want back in history... what moment in history would we choose to land in ? :hmm:
I chose various moments in Elvis life of course LOL and thought to post the game here to see what moment in Elvis life would you choose to witness.
One of mine would be when Gladys went to look for Elvis because Dewey Philips called him to interview him after playing his first record, just to see Elvis happy face.
Another moment i would love to have lived is one of those night parties at Graceland before going to the army.
Wanna play ?:king:

i would like to be in the dressing room just after elvis had appeared in vegas for the 1st time in 1969.
all his doubts would have gone and he would have been on a real high(y)

If I could go back in time it would have to be Elvis' first night at the International in Las Vegas 1969 and I would liked to have been able to meet and talk to him afterwards. He seemed so happy then.
I would've loved to have been in Sun Studios in 1953 when Elvis first walked in and cut his first record. I'd also loved to have been there in July 1954 when Elvis and the boys first tore into That's Alright Mama and Sam Phillips comes in and says "What the hell was that?!" Seeing the very beginning of Elvis' career would be the most interesting.

If I could choose a moment in time that I would like to witness it would be when Elvis recorded his first single release in July 1954 - That's All Right with Blue Moon of Kentucky as the flip side...just to be there to see him in the beginning...
also, I would have loved to have front row seats to see him in the 68' Special...

I'm a 70's fan through and through and given the opportunity I would go to any show from 1969-71 (any would do really just for the thrill).
Having said that in the beginning there was the 50's and to see Elvis live in 1956 would be awesome, young, vibrant and a real rebel of his time.

i would like to be at his first concert at the international , in 69 , of course having the chance to be in the backstage!!
I'd like to be in Germany as well, cos when they gave anphetamin to him I could warn him ....

The moment STUD and Franny mentioned is truly a great one to see... Though ANY 50s moment would be marvelous for me :P

Another: Elvis' birth...
08-30-2006, 05:14 PM
I would go back to the Vegas years.He always looked handsome,but I think he looked his best during the early 70's.I regret not going to his concerts.Of course back then I was too young to travel long distances,but oh well,such is life!Besides,chances are that I would try hard as hell to get a kiss from him and chances are I would have fainth.:lmfao:

If I could go back in time.. I wanna be at the 68 special... in the front row and have a close look of him performing.
Another step ... would like to know how it was to be with him at night at these fairgrounds and have fun there (y)

Wow, what a thought this is!! So many moments to choose!! I would have to go back to his early days when all was still so good in his life,the sun studio days when he was just starting out,without all the mafia and press constantly around,have a day and night with the original,pure Elvis.

There are three stages of his life that I'd like to go to,
firstly would be the recording session for 'Elvis Is Back' just to see him let loose in the studio again, before it all got a bit silly with the soundtracks.
Secondly, I'd love to be at the '68 Comeback special (what an experience that must have been!) and finally, I'd pay a visit to Graceland on a certain August night in 1977, just to make sure that someone stays with Elvis for the evening, and not someone who will let him stay in the bathroom alone for hours without thinking something is wrong

I would go back to Humes High and become Elvis's friend. I would then Join his inner circle and become part of the Memphis mafia. However this is where I would hopefully differ from the rest of his troupe and hopfully I could steer Elvis off of drugs and possibly away from the colenell and definately Dr Nichopoulos.
This would change history because the King would still be with us and we could all still go to his concerts and watch him for real.:lol:

I would go back , that i would be 20 years old around the time of 1968....so i could see and feel the rest of his career(y) (y)
09-01-2006, 10:19 AM
I can see the 68 comeback would be very crowded , don?t fight for the first row :P

If I could go back in time I would go back to that point in time when Elvis was first given pills to help him stay awake while on guard duty in the army. That was the beginning of the end.

As I'm from Germany, I would go back to the time when he was in Germany.....I would walk up to his house and ask him for an autograph and chat a little.....
Elvis as a normal "soldier" in his uniform, far away from all this stardom...
But of course there would be many, many occasions more.....
09-03-2006, 10:32 AM
I would go back in time to 1959 and I would take the place of Priscilla!!:D :P
09-03-2006, 04:33 PM
Probably in 1970 when my father gave me $2.00 for my first Elvis record..``LET`S BE FRIENDS`` AND THE VERY FISRT NEWSPAPER WITH AN ELVIS PICTURE ON IT WITH THE TITLE;
Elvis is coming in Montreal. WIN A DOUBLE ELVIS ALBUM`` (That was the In person LP). It seems that everything change for me also for my family, my friends, baseball, hockey..ah..the fabulous 70`s!
have a nice day

I WAS back in time:-)
I would have loved to have witnessed Elvis's sense of vindication after he heard just how successful "It's Now or Never" had been.
At last the fools who said he could not sing had to shut up!
I remember lining up behind all the "old people" to purchase the landmark single late in 1960 because the release of the record had been delayed in Europe. I was 18.
The song was played almost non stop in the music store the week of it's release. It was number one in the UK charts for 8 or nine weeks. Some say it sold as many as 20 million copies worldwide.

Tricky...... I want to say every single minute of his entire life :hmm:
Well, I would love to be right at the front watching one, no all :P, of his concerts... especially 1969 and 1970, and the 50s.. that would be absolutely marvelous.
I would love to have been at the Comeback Special, especially seeing him sing If I Can Dream and being able to feel all his emotion, passion and soul coming right out :supriced:
Then... being present at the very beginning with That's All Right, seeing him do the Jailhouse Rock dance sequence and the infamous Milton Berle Hound Dog performance would be fantastic... so dynamic and such raw energy.
And being taken over by the power of his voice in any big emotional power ballard in the late 70s, and How Great Thou Art in 1977, would be wonderful.
I would also, as someone else said, want to be there when he got his first pill and tell him to not touch it, and warn him of what would be to come. I would want to be there when he became depressed and tell him how much he was loved :(
Any time really :blush:

More on the, "It's Now or Never", song on the link.
The 26 September 1956 Concert in Tupelo must have been an important date for Elvis. I would have liked to have seen him arrive in the town of his birth as a Movie star!
26 september (1959) I was married to Maureen so we have a reason to remember that date too;-)
