Elvis: Favorite Songs by ‘The King’

Growing up in the ’50s, you could not miss Elvis Presley’s sensational start in live performing, television, movies, and recording. I can still recall his first appearances on Sunday’s Ed Sullivan Show. My favorite songs that influenced my early interest in pop and rock included:

“All Shook Up” 1957
“Blue Christmas” 1964
“Can’t Help Falling in Love”–1961–I still sing/play
“Good Luck Charm” 1962
“Don’t Be Cruel” 1956
“It’s Now or Never” 1960–my 1st Elvis 45 rpm
“Little Sister”1961
“Love Me Tender”–1956–I still sing/play
“His Latest Flame”–1961–I still sing/play
“Return to Sender”–1962–my wife’s 1st 45 rpm
“She’s Not You”–1962
“Suspicious Minds”–1969
“Teddy Bear”–1957

Elvis was blessed in having so many fine songwriters and the strong backup of The Jordanaires. The various live and video performances on DVD help bring back why he was such a sensation. Definitely, a cool, likable person/a and you can see and hear why he was such a major star.
