    I have a tendency to do the exaxct same thing. Seems that when I really listen....

    But seriously though, folks ...

    As for narrative type stories in Elvis' songs, I do like Kentucky Rain.

    And it reminds me of - I kid you not here! - a country singer I used to date called Mary-Lou. That and Trying To Get To You were her favourite Elvis songs.

    Oh, to be young again ....

    ... not!
    You know what they say Getlo, "to be young again, and to know what we know now!"

    All us "older" people's dream that's for sure!

    I always bring along my disc carrier to play Elvis songs on a trip even as short as a half hour. My car has great speakers.

    How about PIECES OF MY LIFE???
    That would be my pick. I've always thought it could have been written for Elvis.

    I like Long Black Limousine, too.

    I do too Diane, and I love to blast it! Much louder than if someone were in the car with me.

    I think as far as a pure visual effect goes I would also go along with "Kentucky Rain". I like it, it's not my favorite, but it is so easy to visualize what he is singing about. I can just see the man who's memory wasn't clear... sometimes my memory isn't clear either.

    Yes I love that one too Rosanne...for the same reason. So many of Elvis' songs have a hint of humor or a very sentimental meaning.

    Too many for me

    Elvis sang LOVE...and there's so much love in his songs

    Some of my favourite stories are in the songs

    -Until It's Time For You To Go
    - In The Ghetto
    - Mary In The Morning
    - So Close Yet So Far From Paradise
    - Snowbird
    - If I Can Dream

    and many many others

    Kentucky Rain for me, too. This is my absolute favorite song. Getting the ride from the preacher & listening to his advice and best wishes.
    Also:
    Stranger in the Crowd
    Sylvia - I have a lot of brothers & more than one have gone out with a "Sylvia"!
    Do You Know Who I Am

    great thread, btw!


    Just pretend, I'm holding you, and whispering things soft and low.
    And think of me, how it's gonna be and just pretend I didn't go

    My favorites are

    My Way
    You Gave Me A Mountain
    My Boy
    "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
