    Thumbs up A song You would Choose

    Scott,
    I would choose Sweet Caroline, from TTWII, origional. Elvis really pours his heart into this song. The way he dances to it is not bad either

    when i did my listening assignment, i chose his version of 'bridgeOTW and there was one girl (yet again she is in to good music and likes another artists version of this song', i asked her how she liked it and she said 'i wanted to cry', others said it was very moving. the sound system had it up loud and it gave me chills up my spine! i dunno how others could not. his voice was so strong and full of meaning, it was just beautiful, and the songs climax and his strong voice, the feeling is indescribable

    I agree totally with 'Elvos'

    As a 'younger' fan myself being only 18, I think Promised Land will do really well on the charts, especially over here in the UK, It always gives me goosebumps and will definatley make some more younger fans, the same could also be said for
    T-R-O-U-B-L-E and Burning Love, the teens now days like the faster rock music as compared to the slower ballad, except of course for me being a fan of Elvis.

    Because Elvis sang a lot of styles, I guess one single song wouldn't do it. I would play the following songs:

    01) Hound Dog (a classic example of 1950's Rock'n Roll)
    02) All Shook Up (my favorite Elvis tune when I was a child)
    03) Something Blue (one of the greatest ballads)
    04) Long Black Limousine (one of my all time favorites)
    05) Promised Land (to show that Elvis still could rock in the 1970's)
    06) Trying To Get To You (live, 21.06.1977 - just listen to this!)

    Well, I had Elvis as a project in school, and at the presentation I showed my class "American Trilogy" from Aloha, and "Always On My Mind" from Elvis On Tour.

    I succeded to brainwash them all
    "It is no secret what God can do,
    and I believe there will be peace in the valley some day,
    so take my hand, precious lord, lead me and guide me."

    well some good choices already given, mine would be:
    love song--- gently
    blues song--- all i needed was the rain
    rock n roll----dont be cruel
    ballad----the fairs moving on
    rockin---memphis tennessee (original version)
    film song----hot dog
    and refering to the songs ELVOS, AND ELV1S said would make good hits if released i disagree mainly because they didnt chart well the first time they were released and also there are plenty more songs not released as singles that could be hits

  17. #57
    Have so many...I would blast these songs.

    Rockin- Raised on Rock/Tiger Man
    Ballad- You've lost that Love & Feeling/If I Can Dream
    Country- Honky Tonk Angel/A Hundred Years From Now
    Gospel- Run On/So High
    Young Elvis- Such a Night/Blue Moon
    Film Song- Rubberneckin/Viva Las Vegas
