His voice and his style.
I have been a fan in ago 1 years now, and i'm so happy to be here and talk about Elvis.
In the beginning i had just heard few Elvis songs, you know the classics.
And my father was a big fan and had some cd's. But at this time, i haden't discovered Elvis yet.
So before the christmas holiday 2 years ago, we saw the movie "This Is Elvis" at the school. After i saw it i become more interested..
I downloaded new songs and discovered more and more.. and then i saw Aloha From Hawaii and 68 Spescial. It was so amazing to see Elvis on stage!
After some months, my father got a dvd copy with all the original albums, and he gave it to me.. I remember it was so exciting! You know, it was around 60 albums.
I began to love his music..
In the summer holiday i think, my father played "Madision Square Garden" to me in the car. It was so fantastic to hear! I think it was so rare to hear That's all right as the opening act... And polk salad annie and Teddy Bear/Don't Be cruel.. you know...
At that time, i had borrowed the "Live In Las Vegas" 4 disc set from my father!
When we was at holiday in Iceland, we played it every time we droved in the car (many hours every day) I loved disc one, espescially when Elvis sang "Jailhouse Rock-Don't Be Cruel and What'd i say.
After playing that disc a hundred of times, i listened to the others, and it was so much good stuff! I remember i played promised land again and again, and also the live versions of the 50's.
Every night, i listened to the same songs: A big hunk of lve, Sweet caroline, Long Tall Sally, Let It Be me, You gave me a mountain etc..
And before i was going to sleep, i always listened to "An American Trilogy"
In the begining i thought some of the songs was tired, but that was until i heard "Don't" and "Bridge Over Troubled Water", "Just Pretend" And "Green Green Grass Of Home"
At the moody blue cd i listened to "If You Love Me Let Me Know" and the funny song "Little Darlin'"..
I loved the melody in "Let Me Be There" and the touching voice during "Unchained Melody"
"If I Were You" and "When I'm Over You" from Love Letters was just beautiful!
I just loved it! Elvis had become my king forever!
Just before the last christmas, i discovered the FTD-series. Now i love them! I have just five, but i always try to buy some new.
The first amateur footage i ever saw was from Pittsburgh. Then i become more interested in footage from concerts..
I saw my first Elvis movie "King Creole" many months ago and i just loved it! Elvis was the young guy who got a contract with King creole and he sang many good songs..
I wanted to see more movies! I saw Viva Las vegas (Remember i was so sad when Elvis lost his money in the swim pool" and Speedway (Not so good, but "Let Yourself Go" was very cool)
Then i saw Flamingstar, Wild In The Country and Love Me Tender..
I listened to movie songs like "I Got Lucky" "The Love Machine" "C'mon everybody" "What'd I Say" "Double Trouble" "Baby If You'll give me all your love" "Dixieland Rock" etc.. and i liked them (Not all of them right now )
I have learned some much during my time as an Elvis fan. I knew about all of the songs and the recording sessions, the albums and the singles and i also collect a little bit. Without a song, the day will never end, without a song, a man ain't got a friend.
Elvis is just a fantastic man..
