    Songs inspired by book about Elvis

    According to Martin L. Gore, the inspiration for him to write "Personal Jesus" was Priscilla's book "Elvis and Me".
    Depeche Mode's breakthrough single was based on a surprising source: Priscilla Presley's book Elvis and Me. "It's about how Elvis was her man and her mentor and how often that happens in love relationships," Gore said. "How everybody's heart is like a god in some way."
    (from the Rolling Stone website)

    Are there any other more or less popular songs that were inspired by a BOOK about Elvis?
    "If you're an Elvis fan, no explanation is necessary; If you're not an Elvis fan, no explanation is possible.
    (George Klein)

    I know many songs were inspired by Elvis-but not sure many were inspired by "a book on Elvis".

    I was surprised that Gore was sitting around reading Elvis & Me, the song I had to look up on YouTube, I was impressed. Elvis is everywhere these days, eh.


    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

    What's so strange about that? I have a copy in most of the rooms in my house so that I can seek an inspirational passage whenever the mood takes me.
    Plus, it raises the Positive Energy levels in the home. Kind of like a Feng Shui thing.
