re-read my reply, nice and s-l-o-w-l-y and you may just learn sumthin' before shooting off at the mouf ...
They had also been divorced for almost 4 years when Elvis passed away.Cilla deserves to have the last name Presley because she was married to him.
She was not his widow, get it ?
I assume not since you already have a hard time eating reality and have other issues ...
A hit record is any song that "hits" the top 40. A major hit is anything that makes the top 10, etc. Elvis had several "hits" in those 7 years. They don't all have to go to number 1.
By Lakeisha's, and ABC's, definition, Elvis only had 18 hit records out of 700 or so recorded. Not very good.
Elvis had chart success durin that period, but he didn't have #1 hits like The Beatles or Stones did. He was basically a soundtrack artist at that time.
That was why he left the movie scene.
I'm no historian to Elvis' career, but I know enough from readin and learnin about him, as Beyonce said she did.
I know he didn't have a US #1 between 62 and 69. That's 7 years, and that was what Vargas was referrin to.
These records all sold million(s) of copies. Still not relevant ?
Viva Las Vegas has the distinction of being not only a "Hit" record, but a single that never got higher than #21 on the Billboard chart, yet, still sold a million records and is now, still, considered a "Classic" ...
Let's not forget, a #1 record is not always indicitive of quality and/or merit.
Again, trying to erroneously re-write history to benefit your own misguided and ill-informed views ...That was why he left the movie scene.
I've known that for a long time ...I'm no historian to Elvis' career
Actually, if you count, the years, 1963 thru 1968, (the years between '62 thru '69) are 6 years, not 7 !!!I know he didn't have a US #1 between 62 and 69. That's 7 years,
