    It's got to be this one...

    Hi,

    This is quite a difficult choice - both songs from different ends of the decade of the sixties - one a ballad, one a country r&b number.

    I think I gotta go for - "The U.S. Male...that's M-A-L-E, son!"

    Cheers,

    NEA.

    If you had said Indescribably Blue (I mention that because when I read this it first registered in my mind as that song), that would have added more difficulty to my decision. But U.S. Male still would have come out on top.

    It's a fun song, not to be taken seriously...overcharged good-humoredly with testosterone. Not many Elvis songs quite like that.

    Image some rap beats under US Male? 'Coz it's almost like Elvis is rappin'.

    Shall we ask N.E.R.D. for a cool hiphop remix from this song?

    I'd have to go for US Male myself, I laughed when I first heard it especially when Elvis threatened to flatten the guys head like the shape of a stamp!!!

    2 movie ballads

    Hi Geordie,

    Looks like 'U.S. Male' is the winner of the first two songs!

    'No More' or 'Angel'?...Another quite difficult choice...

    I've got to opt for the big ballad from "Follow That Dream"...'Angel' gets my vote!

    My vote is for "Angel"

    I'm a cheater.

    I'll say Angel unless I can match it up against the Aloha version of No More.

    I don't know why people think Elvis sound bored or tired on those post-broadcast songs. I think they are somewhat understated or low-key, but not overly so or to the detriment of the songs. Early Morning Rain in particular sounds perfect with that kind of delivery.

    And No More is a beautiful song, sounding much better to my ears in the 70s voice. I wish he had revived Angel then too, though I must say there's not much room for improvement there.

    when i first saw elvis performing those aloha songs i thought he was off his head.ive since learned that he was made to come back to the concert hall after the biggest concert of his life to do these songs.no wonder he looked shattered. by the way my vote goes to
    u.s. male on the 1st q
    angel on the 2nd q. lol

    "Shattered" would be a bit strong in my opinion, to put it mildly. But on with the game...

    This game is getting more difficult

    Hi Lonnie,

    Now, I've won 2 out of 2 so far with the songs I've voted for, but this is getting more difficult...both from the great "Good Times" album from 1974...hmm...my instincts tell me to go with..."Good Time Charlies Got The Blues" - great number!
