Ok my dear Elvis friends, I need help to get out of this God awful depression. I've gotten dumped by the love of my life and had surgery in the same week. I don't know if it's possible to feel any worse, lol. Please help cheer me up!!! This is your calling for this week to cheer your fellow Elvis fan up so she can smile again!!!

Now first I was thinking of some Elvis songs, but none of the "Separate ways", "It's Over", kind of stuff... are there any songs that are like "better of without you" kind of songs, lol? Also, I need to rent some movies to get my mind off of the pain in my heart and my body, lol. Any suggestions? Peferebly something to make me laugh, but not hard enough to burst my stitches!!!

Bobby, I'm hoping you can help me out here, you've always been there for me...."Don't Leave Me Now........." :wink:

Sound advice, young god.

I'd have to listen to the songs more, but just thinking about the titles, When I'm Over You and I'm Movin' On seem appropriate.

The fast songs, the rockers would generally be a good bet. Do you have Cut Me And I Bleed or any similar collection? As Ron said, the laughing version of Are You Lonesome Tonight--boy, it's hard not to at least smile when you hear that. Laughter is of course the best medicine. I'll have to scan through my CDs later and so if I see some other specific things to recommend, I'll let you know.

Movies...If you want to watch an Elvis movie, I'd shoot for Follow That Dream, but I don't have to tell you that. Have you seen Matchstick Men yet? It just came out on video in the last week or two, and I'd definitely recommend that. It has lots of funny moments, although hopefully nothing too stitch-busting, and it's got plenty more to offer too.

I hope that helps, and I may have to recommend more to you later.

LisaMarie,

Just between the two of us, I got dumped many times :D , and i look like a young god!

Well, really now Unchained? I'm pretty cute if I must say so myself, lol. Guess it doesn't matter what you look like, heartbreak is as heartbreak does, lol....

Thank you for the song recommendations, sounds good!

Bobby, I don't have the Cut me amd I Bleed, but I have a very comparable one called Elvis X-rated. I'll be sure to put that one in! And I haven't seen Matchstick Men, I'll have to look for that as soon as I'm able to get up and around.

Thanks guys, this is a good start!!!

Lisa :wink:

You're welcome, Lisa. If I remember correctly, that Elvis X-Rated has many of the same but more tracks than CMAIB does, so you're in good shape there. And I really do think you'll enjoy that movie. Take care!

Time to break out the ol' -----> '68 Special (or better yet, "Outtakes") ........ that'll definitely help do the trick!!

My best to you Lisa.

some of the FTD' like "long lonely highway"(maybe not a good title for you at the moment :( ) But the alt. takes etc. on these FTD's are great listening.

Hey Lisa,
Its great to see you again, :lol: I have really missed you. The songs the guys and gals have given you are really fantastic, I might just need to borrow a couple for myself.
I hope you keep in touch with me because I had always felt you and I were kindred spirits.

Have any of you guys(and gals) tried the Elvis - "Meet Up" ?
I joined one but they always cancelled out my city due to there being less than 5... I will not mention the **** for fear of being lynched, but I have tried to meet some fans at Fan club "meets" and NOT ONE person has responded to a smile ......let alone a hello :shock: :(

As you may guess I am a stranger in my own(adopted) home town.

Hi jbgude!

I have been very reluctant to go to one of those meetings because of the very reasons you stated, lol! I think it's better to know people a little (like online) before you meet up with them in person. Last year I went to the Elvis - the Concert in Atlantic City and a bunch of us from another messageboard met up for drinks before the concert. It was so much fun to see each other in person, to put a face to a name, and to of course talk about our "common interest", lol. I think that would be great to do something like that with the people on this board and FECC. But with everyone from so many different Countries, etc. it's near impossible.

Lisa :wink:

Sonny
03-12-2004, 06:09 PM
You're right LisaMarie, it is impossible to meet so many people from so many countries...

For now, let's just be happy with boards like these...

Are you feeling better allready?

Sonny

jbgude
03-12-2004, 06:16 PM

But then again the is this craving to see what is going on in the E world .

Elvis Meet-Up is a joke when it comes to where I live because I think the only people meeting up would be me and my shadow lol :) There's no one from my area on that thing.

This thread was started so long ago, eh Lisa, so much has happened. But the song that makes me laugh out loud every time is Down In The Alley. Not just the song, but when Charlie and Elvis were trying to record it. You know the one? To all the newbies out there, try and get hold of this, borrow, steal or beg if you have to, it's well worth it. Now someone please come back with the import it's on, I can't remember..... :'(

I just thought............................... One of the best songs ever to raise my spirits is the Laughing version of "Are you Lonsome Tonight" this is an absolute corker, Elvis was really in good spirits, my brother (who is not an Elvis fan in any way) just loves this song and says it will always put a smile on his face also. if you haven't got it, get it
