    our Elvis top 10

    How's this for an idea?
    Let's add up our scores for our personal favorites to compile this board's ULTIMATE ELVIS TOP 10.
    Let's post this here for a week and let everyone vote, with 10 being your number one choice. The song that ends with the highest number of votes is the winner. So, in my case, `Stranger' is my number one song with 10 votes.
    Of course my top 10 could change this time next week but these are the songs I came up with tonight.I'll do a preliminary count after a few days.


    10 Stranger in Mown Home Town
    9 T*R*O*U*B*L*E
    8 Unchained Melody
    7 Good Rockiní Tonight
    6 Suspicious Minds
    5 Burning Love
    4 Reconsider Baby
    3 Mystery Train
    2 Promised Land
    1 Hurt

    Re: our Elvis top 10

    With the help o http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of..._Presley_songs I managed to come up with this list. It really took me a few hours and many changes:

    1. If I Get Home On Christmas Day
    2. Singing Tree
    3. Fool
    4. Any Day Now
    5. Fool
    6. Have a Happy
    7. Stand By Me
    8. And I Love You So
    9. Susan When She Tried
    10. Early Morning Rain


    Of course many other songs would also make this top10 list, but these current songs really are my alltime favorites. These are also songs that I can play over and over and over.

    So many - hard to narrow down, this week's Top Ten.
    And Albert - did you mean to list Fool twice? Or did you want 2 different songs? I have 3 different Fool songs onmy iPod, now


    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
