Suggestions needed for a burned CD

Wed Aug 17, 2005 4:55 pm

My girlfriend, in her 20s,is into the music of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holliday and other soulful singers, now I would like to burn her a CD of Elvis tunes, your suggestions is deeply appreciated.

Hmmm, if your doing a career overview then some sort of greatest hits ripoff would work. If your going more specific...hmmm (rubs chin), Memphis 69? That usually shocks 'non-believers'!

If she likes that type of stuff I'd go with Witchcraft/LMT (Sinatra duet) and most of Elvis Is Back era songs. Toss in some 1969 sessions too. Rap it up with Mystery Train or Blue Moon.

If it's for your girl, then give her these lovely songs:

It's Now Or Never
Surrender
True Love Travels On A Gravel Road
Twenty Days And Twenty Nights
I Just Can't Help Believin
You Don't Have To Say You Love Me
Just Pretend
You've Lost That Lovin Feelin
Stranger In The Crowd
The Next Step Is Love
Bridge Over Troubled Water
We Can Make The Morning
I'll Never Know
Sylvia
Mary In The Morning
Kentucky Rain

It sounds like she's a fan of virtuoso vocalists, so you'll want songs where Elvis is on top of his game. It's also worth throwing in some with a jazzy 'after dinner' feel. Songs that come to mind include:

Fever
Love Me
Young and Beautiful
I Need Somebody To Lean On
There's Always Me
Pocketful of Rainbows
It Hurts Me
You Don't Know Me
Almost in Love
Anything that's Part of You
This is the Story
You'll Think of Me
Any Day Now
Loving Arms

I've surprised someone hasn't badgered the fellow to
buy her a real Elvis album! (And no, I don't mean
"Love, Elvis"... :evil: :D )

Are we giving in to the idea (as BMG seems to have) that
Elvis' real albums just don't cut it, as they do for Dylan,
the Beatles, the Stones, Frank Sinatra, etc.? :shock:

I would just buy her 'Elvis Is Back', a bottle of Moet and a box of Belgian chocolates.....................sit back and let her rock your world! :wink:

Yes, Delboy, that does make sense! :lol:

Now That's a beautiful record, isn't it? :D

Thanks for all the inputs. I guess I would buy her the Elvis is Back album.
The problem with most ELVIS albums is the materials are very eclectic.

Jove,
If a ride on the nookie train is all you're looking for, let her put on one of her Billie Holliday albums. Now that lady could sing.
