    I think you mean that Elvis should have listened to it because he would have changed his medicine taking habits, even though the song is about judging other people.

    Yeah, I couldn't agree more. There are so many saying it was wrong being Elvis.. But I know Elvis didn't cause any war or deadly disease. So we should be ****ing grateful (warmly or deeply appreciative of kindness or benefits received) for all the good stuff he left us.

    To me, Change Of Habit was the most underrated movie track he ever recorded. It had that Beatles mystique about it with that funky base line opening and the heavy hard rock drumming at the end which was practically the closest EP ever came to Hard Rock music in his last decade on earth. Such a shame too that Parker and RCA didn't see this as a potential #1 hit to follow up the hugely successful Suspicious Minds in early 1970. Instead they went with the softer Don't Cry Daddy. What great lyrics this song had then and today politically spoken.

    Change Of habit


    (Words & music by B. Kaye - B. Weisman)
    If you're in old habits
    Set in your old ways
    Changes are a-comin'
    For these are changing days
    And if your head is in the sand
    While things are goin' on
    What you need, what you need,
    What you need is a change of habit

    Now if you're in the habit
    To let your temper fly
    When you talk with people
    Who don't see eye to eye
    And if you don't believe it
    There's a newer world ahead
    What you need, what you need,
    What you need is a change of habit

    A change of habit, a change of outlook
    A change of heart, you'll be all right
    The halls of darkness
    Have doors that open
    It's never too late
    To see the light

    So if you're in the habit
    Of putting people down
    Just because they're different
    From the wrong side of town
    Well, don't count on any medals son
    They're pinning none on you
    What you need, what you need,
    What you need is a change of habit

    And as my wife says "bragging is nagging" ( just a little ribbing !!! Maurice! )
    Got my family, my kids, my books and my music, I'm good, yeah, I'm good.....

    I don't mind. I learnt the art of bragging from the great George Bernard Shaw, a genius at it. I'm just an amateur in comparison:-)

    It was very nice of Mary Tyler Moore to take the time to send the photograph, from her office in New York.
