Elvis was his happiest when Lisa was born, no question.
On the professional side, I think he was happiest with his Jaycees Award. And I reckon Aloha must have made him pretty chuffed with what they'd accomplished that night.
when stardom was not a bother yet. When he was able to buy his mother that beautiful house.
When he was alreaddy the King but not the pressure yet.
When he married and became a father.
In 68,69,70 when the world was at his feed
The birth of Lisa, and when Gladys was alive, mid 50's.
I think he was the happiest when he earnt enough money to provide for his mother and father, along with the birth of lisa.
I think the happiest moment of Elvis life was the day he was born. I also believe it was the happiest moment of their lives for his mom and dad too.
I guess his best times where '56-'57 when everything was like walking in a dream, apart from that, we have never seen his eyes sparkle so much as in the '68-'70, from the day Lisa was born to the days of TTWII.
It is not coincidence that '56 and '69 where his most creative years, happines in live makes you work better, succes in your career gives you more happines.
Yep, that's how I see it too. Well said

I heard he is very happy because of good girlfriend Ann Margaret in 1963 when he was top of the hill and he don't know where he was?

I would really like to think that Elvis' life held many, many very happy times for him. But if I had to choose, just by standing on the outside looking in, I would def say that he very much enjoyed having the chance to provide for his parents, especially Gladys, in a manner in which they were not accustomed to living. Being able to give them Graceland, and cars, and lots of other extra's...just the thought that they would never again struggle financially brought him great joy. I think he was also very happy when he became a father. I think that he wanted very much to be a good Daddy to Lisa, and thus spoiled her terribly...lol, but ya can't really blame him for that. Elvis often showed love by 'giving'....and he gave a lot to those around him. Including the fans....in so many ways. I like to think that he had moments of pure happiness when he walked onstage and performed for those who loved him dearly.
Daddy, I miss you more every day. You will always be my hero..
Coming On Strong
I think Elvis was at his happiest maybe in 1955-56. He was young, healthy, his mum was still alive, he had just discovered he could make a career of what he wanted most of all; sing! He had also just started to get money and could create a comfortable life for himself and his family. As a young man in in his early 20s, I donīt think he saw many problems in life at that time...
Of course when Lisa Marie was born, that most also have been a very happy moment for him. I donīt doubt that he loved her more than anything. But he was already struggeling with drugs, being depressed at times, and his marriage didnīt work that well.
