    You Meet Elvis and....

    You Meet Elvis and he invites you back to Graceland (wow I know) you kick back and Jam with the king laughing and having fun, you have a great time!

    So here it is...

    1. What songs would you sing (ask Elvis to sing)

    2. Elvis invites you to see a show (You choose what Year and what Show)

    3. As you are leaving Elvis gives you a memento (You choose, could be anything! Car, Ring, Autograph or Cadillac)

    Here's mine:-

    1. Songs would include -
    a) 'Suspicious Minds', Unplugged style
    b) 'Polk Salad Annie' slow version with the 69 On Stage Album talking Intro,
    c) 'Never Been To Spain' Elvis On Tour Rehearsals version, sounds more bluesy.
    d) 'Johnny B Goode' Kick *** Style

    2. What show - Very Hard to decide here, there are so many great shows! When push comes to shove I guess the time when Elvis was at his Jumpsuited peak I've got to got with one of the Madison Square Garden shows June 11th 1972 with the Porthole Jumpsuit.

    3. What memento? - Well, I'm just walking to the hall and Elvis opens the door takes off his glasses and says here, have these as a memento! How cool to be able to look through some glasses Elvis looked through.

    Your turn..

    Re: You Meet Elvis and....

    I would ask him to sing Just Pretend to me. & I would want him to sing (and join in with..) King Of The Whole Wide World.


    I would love to have been to the Tupelo show in 56. Otherwise, the 68 Special.

    A momento, Domino ? (is that allowed! ) Priscilla wouldnt be happy would she. If not, something personal, like a ring. And I would ask Joe or someone to take a photo of me 'n' Elvis!!

    A scarf. Yes, that's a good idea. I'll have one of those instead of a ring. Don't want to be greedy!

    1. Raised On Rock
    2. Long Black Limousine
    3. Lawdy Miss Clawdy
    4. I, John
    5. Bosum of Abraham

    I would want to see him perform these songs at his first opening in Las Vegas '69 (it's my fantasy remember )

    For a souvenir, I would like one of his pianos that he played on a lot.

    Good topic. For the songs, I'd want to hear every one of them. But, I'd
    ask for Polk Salad Annie, Amazing Grace, Only Believe, Promised Land,
    That's Alright Mama, If That Isn't Love, Little Sister, Just Tell Her Jim Said
    Hello, Tomorrow is a Long Time,You Can Have Her and I could go on and on. What show -
    that would be Dayton OH l976. And for the momento, I'd be with you,
    Junksuit Junkie; I'd ask for the glasses he was wearing. I love pictures
    of Elvis in his "shades".

    That is such a "WOW!"-thing. What a great thread.
    So here it is...
    1. What songs would you sing (ask Elvis to sing)
    We'd be singing gospel all night - or the Blues! Hi-heel sneakers, Stranger in my Own Hometown, Down in the alley, etc.
    2. Elvis invites you to see a show (You choose what Year and what Show)
    1956 - any show in Texas - they were a bit more intimate, and after the shows Elvis would be hanging out with the fans at the local Burger Huts!

    3. As you are leaving Elvis gives you a memento (You choose, could be anything! Car, Ring, Autograph or Cadillac)
    Okay, it's in the fall, and it was a bit warmer when he asked me over, and now it's become much colder, so he rushed over to his closet - yeah, we made it up to the bedroom, sorry, you weren't invited!, and he loans me his jacket the Rainbow with the fringe! It's so colorful, he finds it and grabs it quickly. I offer to have it cleaned and returned, but knowing Elvis he just tucks his head down a bit, and smiling says, "Nah, honey, you keep it!"
    Yeah, I've had this dream before!


    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

    It sounds like you have mentally rehearsed it many times

    WOW!!!

    Now THAT is a very cool question J.J.!!! What a tough one to answer too...hmmm....let's see....

    As for the songs I would ask Elvis to sing...probably some of his later ballads, since they are my favorites...songs like IT'S MIDNIGHT, I'M LEAVIN', FOR OL' TIMES SAKE, LOVE COMING DOWN, IT'S EASY FOR YOU and HELP ME come immediately to mind. Of course, we'd probably have to throw some rock n' roll in there too...perhaps a little LAWDY MISS CLAWDY, BABY WHAT YOU WANT ME TO DO or one of my all-time favorite songs - FOOLS FALL IN LOVE!!!

    An invitation to a show....it would have to be the Las Vegas opening night show on 8/19/74...such an amazing and unique show!!! He certainly would have gotten a VERY positive reaction from me, that's for sure!!!

    As for the one memento he gave me as I was getting ready to leave...that one's easy...his TCB RING!!!

    Thanks for the great question J.J.!!!

    TCB!

    Re: You Meet Elvis and....

    I would have liked to sing with Elvis:
    Trying to get to you
    One Night
    Pocketful of Rainbows
    Don't
    Loving You
    Can't help falling in love
    Show I would have loved to attend:
    The press and invited guest show for his 69 return at the International-close second- the first MSG show.
    A memento:
    A picture of Elvis shaking my hand-and giving me a hug.

    So many times as a young teen I dreamed of doing these things-I even had a plan to run away to Memphis at about 13. Dreams of the young
    Work in Progress!
