    Smile Tell us why Elvis is special for you : )

    I'd like to invite you to tell the world what Elvis means to you. Come on, let's show why he is our special man!

    Elvis means to me one of the most beautiful blessings I ever had. I love his sweet voice, the kindness of his soul... just everything.

    hmm i can't give one reason why Elvis is special to me, but there are so many, his voice, his charisma, hmm maybe its his charisma, you are just drawn to him even through a song. the way he sings a song like 'suspicious minds' is so passionate. i still remember being 12 years old when the number 1 hits came out, and slapping it on my cd every day until i got sick of it really, but i can still remember the strange sensation that the songs gave me, it was something i never heard before.

    Oh my gosh...I can't begin to explain why Elvis is SO special to me. He's my passion, my obsession, he's my "everything"! I love him so much!!! I've been a fan since I was 11 years old, well...I've always been a fan, but that's when my OBSESSION began, hehe! I love absolutely everything about the King! He's wonderful. I love his movies, music, dancing, style, good-looks, devotion to his fans, devotion to his faith, and his legacy. He's indescribable!!! He's the man of my dreams. Gosh...I could go on forever! But I'd better stop. He's my "hunka hunka burning love"!!! FOREVER!

    Elvis is special to me for many reasons. He was so giving to others and he was so dedicated to his work and his fans. His voice and charisma. Elvis was so compassionate and loving. I can't even begin to imagine what if would have been like to have been loved and cared for by him. He was just an awesome human being!!

    He has given (and still gives) me so many great moments, from listening to his albums to watching his movies. There's always some part of his carreer or recordings that fit your mood.

    The image and voice are unsurpassed. Even as a straight male, I never get tired of looking at pictures of Elvis and feel he wipes the floor with any "heart throb" in the public eye today - and then! As for the voice...? Where to begin? So versatile, so profound, so expressive, so melodious. The complete package.

    He's been special to me since I was 11 years old and heard the entire "On Stage" album (which had just been released in 1970) while shopping at our Woolworths. It's funny, I remember that day like it was yesterday. His attributes were so incredible, yet he never came across as arrogant. His voice is one of a kind as were his live performances which were and to this day, beyond compare. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about him, or listen to a song, or visit great sites such as this. Like most Elvis fans, he truly is a part of everyday life, such is the effect this man left on so many people, including yours truly.

    So many things!

    Hi there,

    There are so many things that make Elvis so special to me - Voice, Music, Looks, Fashion, Style - he was/is everything to do with popular culture...whether he was wearing a pink shirt in the 1950's or an onstage Jumpsuit from the 1970's he is the ultimate trendsetter before his time.

    There is always going to be something in his passion that will connect with your passion - It's magical!

    Cheers for reading,

    NEA.

    The light of my life

    All of You have explained your feelings for elvis so beautifully and complete that there is nothing left for me to add. I share your feelings for elvis, I admire his great passionate ,crushed velvet vioce that touches my very soul, his great goodlooks has a special charisma which has been unique till now, his sweet smile, tender kind heart, his warmness for people specially his fans.
    But I,d like toadd something more: he has been my great companion in some special moments which you might have never experienced.
    When I was just 13, my city was under heavy bombings, alone at home for some reasons, Iwas studying that suddenly there was a terrible bombing sound!!We were under bomb raids again! scared to death, alone , nowhere to go.I just decided to listen to elvis, when he began to sing" A bridge over troubled water" I was strongly impressed, hearing his soothing voice:
    When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all
    I,m on your site, oh, when times get rough,
    And friends just can,t be found
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down

    Elvis has got just that special ability that when he sings , he makes you feel that he is just singing for you, he is so sincere that touches your very soul, he makes you believe he means every word for you!!
    I,ve got some very dear friends through him that help me to know and love this great human being better and deeper. He is the light of my life.

    Elvis grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    the courage to change the things I can
    and the wisdom to know the difference

    There are many reasons why I like Elvis and his music, the obvious reasons are all stated above, but there is another one that makes him so special to me. Because of Elvis, I have made some great friends, people I wouldn't have ever met or have the opportunity to meet in the future.

    Like many others I can't really explain why he is so special to me, but I try. I only remember that from the first time I heard his voice it was as if lightning had stroke me and I was immediately in love with him. (I know it sounds silly.) Therefor I wanted to know more about him. The more I got involved with him and his life it felt as if he was kinda like my soulmate. As if I knew him for years and I could understand him in many ways. Maybe it was a combination of things, like: his voice, his charme, his carisma, his mysterious way of life and I can relate to many songs that Elvis sings. It doesn't matter where I am, but whenever I hear Elvis I get shivers and can't focus anymore. I wished I had met him once for real.



    Be safe and take care,

    Elvis is special for me because.....

    He seemed to have a song to fit every mood. He did make you feel like you knew him personally and was dear to you. He was approachable and loving to his fans as few stars were. He was Elvis, he was unique, there will never be another!

    You can see beyond his soul because of his music and sweet voice. I guess people can really know Elvis if they listen with the heart. But you're right, see him personally, would be a dream came true. Who knows, maybe you will have the chance to meet Elvis in heaven!, don't you think? I'm sure of that.

    Thank you very much for your reply.
