    Me too.

    Best lyrics out of the bunch.

    Leiber and Stoller were one of the best pair of songwriters that Elvis ever worked with. Of course, they were probably one of the only "PAIR" of songwriters he worked with, too. But you know what I mean.

    It has to be Good Luck Charm!

    Although Way Down holds a special place for me since it was his first posthumous No.1.

    "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" At the time it was something quite different from Elvis. Great vocal and the spoken bridge always gives me goosebumps.
