Elvis was always amazing in concert but what do you think were Elvis' favourite songs to sing in concert?

Here's just a few:

American Trilogy

How Great Thou Art (or any gospel music)

Trying to get to you

Bridge over troubled water

You gave me a mountain

Are you lonsome tonight

My way

And I love you so

Its Now or Never

Can't Help Falling in love

Love Me

Fairy tale
look forward to comments

I think he loved performing Lawdy Miss Clawdy, and Suspicious Minds (at first), An American Trilogy, How Great Thou Art, and many others must have been fun to sing as well.

I think "Hurt" was a favorite for Elvis in 1976-77.

I think he also loved to do FEVER.

I think in the latter years he loved "belting" out songs like, "How Great Thou Art", "Hurt" "Its Now or Never" I think when he first returned live 69-71 he enjoyed the fast songs quite a bit-he loved to show he could still rock and move. IMO

Very tough choice because it changed through the years.
So I think he had fun with "Suspicious Minds" and "Polk Salad Annie" and later he prefered songs like "My Way" or "Hurt". Gospels were another part. You can find bits of it in every year in the 70's.
