    I really don't remember the first song from him what I heard, maybe it was "Love Me Tender" when I was a little girl. But I do remember that "The Wonder Of You" did it to me (made me fall in love with him) in the TTWII movie.


    I LOVE

    probably Return to Sender seeing it was the song i sang to my kindergarten class mates when i was asked what i wanted to be when i grew up. My teacher told me i had to do a song.
    I never looked for trouble but I never ran.

    or it could have been One Night, i played it till the sound was gone from it. Guess i'm glad i chose return to sender to sing, i don;t think my teacher would have thought One Night was a good song for a 5 year old to know.

    In 90s, I'd seen a tv advert on a Turkish tv channel, with It's Now or Never as the soundtrack of the commercial. I thought to myself 'whoever this singer is, he sounds so sensual' . But that was about it
    Then, maybe months later, when I was in a music shop, I saw this picture of Elvis in a red top, with his shiny black hair.. I remember thinking that I've not seen this man before.. But I loved the way he looked so I bought the cassette.
    When I played the cassette and came across that song I'd heard on tv commercial before, I was suprised of course, that I'd found who that singer was..
    And then inevitable happened.. I became an Elvis fan

    Heartbreak Hotel, then Mistery Train and at last Johnny B. Goode (from EOT).

    I was only 11, and I was at the theater watching "Speedway", so the song that stayed with me - and I can still sing all the words- is "You're Time Hasn't Come Yet". That scene of Elvis with the little girl probably cemented the deal for me. My other favorite song was Little Egypt.

    Of course, now I have a better selection - Paralyzed and Just Pretend

    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

    'if i can dream'. I specifically remember when we went to Graceland and at the end when we were around the meditation garden, if i can dream was played, i tried to rewind it but i couldn't. I knew then, i would be a fan.

    I actually caught Elvis's 'Love me tender' movie on TV when I was four
    years old and I really liked it. My mom bought me a record and it was
    puppet on a string 45rpm and it's the first song I loved of Elvis's

    I don't know what the first song I heard of Elvis' was. Before I went to Graceland and before I became a fan, I had heard of him and knew of a couple songs. But after going to Graceland where they blast his music at you it was Can't Help Falling in Love that I couldn't get out of my head and that song lead me to buy a CD with it on it which lead to everything else that I have and became a fan.
