    Mine's " O Holy Night"..

    There are many songs I would have loved to hear Elvis sing but high on the list would have to be the Roy Orbison numbers 'Cryin' and 'Running Scared' and a song performed by Frankie Laine entitled 'My Friend' which would have been a great song for Elvis to record.


    'What, honey ? ..... one scarf for the balcony ?! ........... OK ........... gimme a baseball ! ............ there's no way unless you put a rock in it'.

    (Las Vegas - 7th December 1975)

    PINK Cadillac!

    This is the song that Bruce Springsteen wanted to give to Elvis to record.

    Some inspired choices here. I really have none to add at this moment, but I just had to comment especially on the mention of O Holy Night.

    I love Elvis' Christmas catalogue, but one song that I hold in as high esteem as any of his is, I daresay, is Nat King Cole's version of that song. And I too have often wished Elvis had given it a try. So I was quite surprised to see someone else mention it.
    ...you won't forget me when I go.

    "Respect"-originally done by Aretha
    "How deep is your love"- Bee Gees
    "I love you"- Olivia Newton John(he turned this down)

    Actually that was Fire that Bruce wrote from Elvis, but I agree Pink Cadillac (which was written after Elvis died) would have been ideal for him. Jerry Lee Lewis did a good version of it.

    I had no idea about "Fire"! And I've always thought that Elvis would have done a great job singing that song!

    "He ain't heavy, he's my brother." He would have done a magnificent job on this Hollies classic!

    Re: Name the song you wish Elvis would have recorded..

    Rainny Night in Georgia is right...I read a book Oct. 1977 they where coming to his house again to record and that was one of the songs on Feltons list.

    1.) Rainny Night In Georgia
    2.) Devil Went Down To Georgia
    3.) I Will Always Love You (Maybe a Duet with Dolly instead.)
    4.) Woman, Woman (by Gary Puckett)
