Yeah even though he is gone I still feel that he is going to go do a show at MSG, like I am just waiting for tickets to go on sale. Its weird.
"When I was a child, ladies and gentlemen, I was a dreamer. I read comic books, and I was a hero in the movie. So every dream that I ever dreamed has come true a hundred times. I learned very early in life that without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain't got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend; without a song. So I keep singing a song." - Elvis Presley
You express yourself really well in the written word and you are so not alone in the way you are feeling about Elvis.... I remember when I was 15 back in 1991 they showed this is Elvis for the first time on TV and when it got to the end and the funeral footage was shown I cried uncontroably...my mum could not believe my reaction but I could not help it. My heart was actually aching.It was at that moment I realised how much I really loved him.
If this is the thread were everyone goes a bit emo over Elvis' death or over his cute cheeks, I'd like to say something: I'm so glad I found this place! We all feel the same and it's amazing
Someone said something about a BIG family, and that was very true. When I came here I just wanted to talk a little, learn new stuff, but I didn't think fans were so close in feelings...
Thank you people for being here
(thank you very much)
Good to have a "feel good" thread here - unlike some others, with statements that are totally ludicrous *cough*a friend with ties to the City Council*cough* (p.s.: same person apparently has been proven wrong on more than one occasion)
However, does anyone have the story behind the image on Burning Love's avatar?? Elvis seems to incredibly happy and joyful

I'd l?ke to say that I love this thread too
I have actually never really talked to Elvis fans before I found this site...
I wonder why I found it so late, I missed so much Anyway, I love talking to you all and I hope there won't be any argueing soon
BTW, this picture you talked about earlier is soooo cute, I absolutely agree
but I won't say anything more about the cheeks lol
Thank you everyone for replying; I am glad i said the right thing
With friends like you, who needs enemies ?
Thank you burning for making this thread, its so peaceful.
Aww that's Ok Presley31 !!! It's also fun, even though it started off sad, thats what i love about these sort of threads
Don't worry I always cry like an ***** when I watch Unchained Melody live 1977, when he is sitting on the piano He put everything he had in that one...all the energy, the voice...everything.
You know, he was such a beautiful person,I think he deserved to live more.
Thanks for posting this about the Unchained Melody live '77. After all these years I still cannot watch it without shedding bitter tears -each time. I never dared to write that publicly again. I've been flamed badly on another forum years ago -a German one, these people are just terrible about him :-(
Footage of the funeral I cannot watch until today and probably never will. I NEVER had a closer look at Meditation Garden, just rushed by pictures, never kept any of these nor footage. I won't go to Graceland for that reason, because I don't think he's still there -so many terrible things happened after he'd left -to his faithful friends who were fired from the estate etc, and there is nothing left what has to do with him.
Each August 16 is the saddest day on the entire year. I sure had my load of bad periods and personal tragedies, but nothing ever hit me that hard and longlasting as that fatal day in '77. It was so untimely, so unreal, perhaps at the time the better part of us believed he's immortal ! and today I still believe it -in a way, yes he's probably the most immortal person who ever lived, because the love of his fans grows with each passing year -so I hope at least.
Elvis' Rich Southern Voice Flows Like Beewax in the Mississippi Sun
mwahaha soon the young members will take over
this thread is so peaceful, no arguments, just friends talking about Elvis. its so good to have this thread because its impossible to argue on .. its just too NICE
you all are my family and this site is my home (i've been in my sociology lessons WAY too long now .... stupid "families and households" topics!) im gonna put that in my essay on what "family" means to me
keep up the nice threads! theres disagreements, then theres just plain ignorance
I've got those hup, two, three, four, occupation G.I. Blues, From my G.I. hair to the heels of my G.I. shoes
Wow...I feel the same about the 77 concert. I tried to watch some videos of it, but I had to stop because I cried too much
The most immortal person who ever lived? Maybe yes. Don't worry, the new generation will be here to spread the Elvis love!
OMG Danielle,you've said it soo right! I feel the same,it's hard to believe that he's been gone for 30 years,but he will never,ever be forgotten and he will stay alive in our hearts!!! I've also cried soo many times while watching This Is Elvis-the end of it and Elvis By The Presleys,it's just sooo sad,that such a wonderful man had to die sooo young, but he left us soo many great memories...Elvis,4Ever In My Heart!
You know, it would have been VERY boring if there weren't any disagreements but that's not the problem. The problem is how people respond on someone else's opinion...If you know what I mean.
We all should respect each others opinions...like real friends and yes, like a family.
This forum is where we should relax hehe and not fight.
We all have one in common : Our love for Elvis
