    Smile Best Elvis ballads?

    Which ballads do you like the most? I was listening "There's Always Me" and thought in many other lovely ballads that are kinda' forgoten. Can you mention others?

    I may give a lesson in college about Elvis (love to do that ). Gonna talk about Elvis' other side, the one away from rock'n'roll. And I will mention some ballads there. Is good to show the interesting Elvis beside his "king of R&R" image, don't you think?

    After Loving You
    Kentucky Rain
    True Love Travels Down A Gravel Road
    This is the Story
    Rags to Riches
    If I Can Dream
    Just Pretend
    How the Web Was Woven
    Trying to Get to You
    I Can't Stop Loving You
    Make the World Go Away
    Are You Lonesome Tonight
    You Don't Know Me
    It's Over
    For the Good Times

    will scorn. Where LOVE will bless the earth
    and peace its paths adorn...
