If you were a dj on a radio station and given the opportunity to play what you consider to be the ultimate Elvis Presley "Perfect Album Side", what would it contain? This is your chance to show the world who the King is. In the tradition of classic lp's, we'll keep it from six to eight tracks.

This would be mine....

1.Thats all right
2.Mystery Train/Tiger Man(medley)
3.Guitar Man
4.Suspicious Minds
5.I got a woman
6.Separate Ways
7.Polk Salad Annie
8.Are you lonesome tonight

Well I've given this quite a bit of thought, and changed my lineup several times, but here's what I am currently thinking as my list for the perfect album side...

THAT'S ALL RIGHT
MYSTERY TRAIN
JAILHOUSE ROCK
SURRENDER
YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE
STRANGER IN MY OWN HOMETOWN
SUSPICIOUS MINDS (From the "Elvis In Person at the International Hotel" album)
IT'S EASY FOR YOU

Kind of an eclectic mix of songs for me, but I wanted to make sure I included a gospel song along with a great blues song, plus a couple of classic Elvis tunes, and a couple of more underrated (in my opinion) and lesser known Elvis songs. :hmm:

TCB!
Mike

It was worth the wait too Mike! Also, girl do you had an interesting list there too. I would gladly listen to every list on here back to back on a radio station.

It was worth the wait too Mike!

Thanks my friend!!! ;)

It was such a toss-up on a number of songs, but as I said, I wanted a more eclectic mix that I thought showed off all facets of Elvis' musical styles. Hopefully I succeeded... :hmm:

TCB!
Mike

E does do a great version of "Gentle on my mind". It slays Glen Campbell's version. Memphis Tennessee was a nice touch too. Cool list Everlasting Gaze.

Lisarose, That is a great list. "Just Pretend" and "Fame and Fortune" make excellent bookends and you can never, ever go wrong with my favorite of all time, "Suspicious Minds".
