I voted 1969-1973,I think it was at the top of the world,was more maturely,his voice tape-worm more force was full of energy,and about only one year that was a father,and to feel proudly of it,his song were a pure feeling,not as explaining it now,but it was the best moment of his life,Im sure.

I think Elvis was the happiest at the start of each new phase of his carrear.
That is :

1955-1957: Recognition as a rock'n'roll star and a filmstar as well

1960: After the army Elvis was looking forward to reaffirm himself as a filmstar as well as a recording artist

1968 - 1970: Lisa Marie's birth, '68 Special, movie carrear over, return to live performances

Apart from these periods I think EP was occasionally happy, but most of the time bored by the routine that he himself, entourage and most of all Parker, put Elvis into.

I voted 52/56 cause for me it was the most happyest time elvis had, cause since his mom dies, elvis became very unhappy, and just like lennon once said, elvis just die the day he has in the army, and after his return no matter his greatness, he has unhappy

I voted for 1952-1956 just because his dream came true and I think he was really happy in that period...to sing, to be famous and help his parents to live better (y)
But I also think he was happy in 1968, for coming back to perform live and for being a father ;)

I also had to vote for 1952-1956 because of his dreams coming true and 1968 when Lisa was born.

It has to be1952-56, it all happened in that period so glad I was there for the beginning of Showbusiness's greatest moment, the picture on my avator is my favourite ELVIS picture of all time the ultimate"Cool Cat" who'd got the Cream at last ,and ended years of poverty for his Parents.. I had it as a poster pinned to my bedroom door when I was 16 years old, it stayed there for years, ten years after a War and economic hardship along comes this great looking, great singing Idol, Icon, whatever you want to call him(musical genius comes to mind) who slapped society in the face, and set every Teenager at that time free, to realise that they had a voice to be heard, he was the greatest non political Revolutionary of all time,and we should all be grateful for what he did for us all and the wonderful Legacy in Music he has left us with...Thanks Elvis, in my mind you will never be forgotten, you were one of the chosen few..:king:(y)(y)(y):notworthy:notworthy:

whoops wrong post. oK 52-56 because he was making his dreams come true and 1968 Lisa was born. Lisa's birth was the single most happiest time in his life i think.

I voted for 52-56 as well.That's when I think Elvis really was at his happiest.Sure he had his up's and down's starting out in the music business but when he finally did make it,he was on top of the world.He also had his parents around to help share his new found fame as well.

Good question, Rena. (y)
I voted for 1952-1956, too. But, there's also other years that were happy ones' for Elvis..but 1968 and the birth of Lisa Marie brought him a lot of happiness, personally and the 68' Special, professionally.

I agree with Ale, Diane and piretos. :P

I think 1968 was his happiest. Lisa Marie was born in May and he was going to sing in front of audiences again as well. I have seen many videos also where his close freinds (Jerry Shielling and Joe Esposito) have said that he was the happiest.

A person has happy moments all through there life I would think so its impossible to say he was happiest here than the other as we don't know what he was feeling at a specific time. Sure we can say ok so this show or this tour from the late 70's wasn't good so we automatically assume our man wasn't happy but I'm sure he had happy moments, when he was with family and Lisa..so I just can't choose one I like to think he even had happy days in 1977...

When he recived the award for outstanding people,made Elvis very happy and proud,from what i understand he took that award with him on tour and kept it by his bedside..
of course we all know when Lisa Marie was born, was a very happy time in his life!!
and when he was on stage doing what he loved..preforming for his fans made him happy as well!!

I'd vote from 1968 to 1973. I'm sure after the 68 Comeback he was very happy. I think it was the happiest time in his life (after Lisa was born) when he could go back to his audience, and did the live concerts again.

I think Elvis was always happy man except a few months after his mother died,
and last three years of his life when he was sick.

Why not?

But I do think Elvis was more carefree as a young man, having his mother around. To him that bond was tremendously important.

It's a pity that being famous is just what caused a lot of loneliness later on.

Im sure he wasnt happy after 1958. After his mother died. But who choses 1974-1977 must be totally out of their mind. He was never happy then... :!:

I agree.It's hard to say becouse your right.He had little moments throughout his lifetime.
Like when Gladys was with him,when he was with Priscilla,when Lisa was born,ect.
so I can't choose one or the other.i'd have to choose them all.

I don't think I have missed it. All in all I agree that he even had happy moments during his last year, as we occasionally see a sparkle in his eyes while performing and the love for music and his fans kept him going. Don't know if that would qualify as a "happy day" though..
