Any excuse for Elvis

  1. Moe,

    I’ll just tell you this. There isn’t a bigger Elvis fan in the world than I am. Except maybe my two brothers and sister. My mom raised us right.

    This Don McClean song is one of McClean’s best and it was part of Elvis’ last studio recordings in 1975. I was fortunate enough to see Elvis twice in 1976 and I just wish my kids could have experienced it, even when Elvis was not in good health. His stage presence was incredible and I can only imagine what it was like to see him in 1956.

    Thanks for posting the video link. I’ve listened to it four times already. Awesome song, awesome voice.



    • Duane – wow, you actually saw him – I’m a little jealous. I don’t think I appreciated the qulailty of his voice when I was young (and so was he!). The cultural excitmenet, the sexiness, the way he could reach right inside you – especially if you were a teenage girl – that was the experience. It’s only since hten, and expecially now, that I am hearing the richness of his voice. Wonderful.

      So glad you enjoyed it. It’s why I put these up! (and I love cruising around youtube looking for them.)
