Top 10 songs, vocal perf., live concerts..
Hey everyone! I am sure this has been posted before but I have been relistening to all my Elvis music ( so much and I still don't even have close to all that is out there) and was wondering if you could give me your opinions on your personal favorites. I'll list mine ( using what little knowledge and exposure I have ) and hope that you do the same, So I can broaden my horizons a bit . Thanks alot. Oh, categories are ( but not limited to) Top favorite studio recordings, top vocal performances and top live concert cds.( official, import or bootleg) on any of these. It's sure hard to narrow it down!
SONGS - In the Ghetto, Kentucky Rain, Suspicious Minds, Don't Cry Daddy, American Trilogy, Are you Lonsome Tonight?, Feel So Bad, Little Sister, , Marie's the NAME, Promised Land, I've Lost You,
VOCAL - American Trilogy, My Way, It's Now or Never, How Great Thou ARt, America the Beautiful, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Hurt, My Boy, Danny Boy, Surrender, Peace in the Valley, Blue Moon (from the first album. I know it's an odd choice but I love that sad eerie quality to his voice in this song. Should have been used in a David Lynch movie)
Live - Goodbye Memphis (great long cocert but mostly because I was there!), Aloha Special, 68 comback special, Madison Sq. Garden 72, Memphis 74, Memphis 75 ( I love these in Memphis, seems like he was trying real hard to please his hometown fans), Rockin' New Years Eve, Burning in Birmingham, Live on Stage '70, and I really love some of the performances in Rapid City in 77. His voice was strong and clear and had an unusual, but pleasing, quality to it. It was wierd because on some of those songs he hit notes better than he had in years, and on many he couldn't at all. I hate to watch this one though, he was obviously in pain and discomfort.
Thanks for your input!
