Here you can also post any related video's of Elvis too, except impersonator video's where they imitate Elvis' voice of material he recorded.

Famous tenor singing Can`t help falling in love

Thu Dec 20, 2007 12:01 am

Now, Andrea Bocelli is a famous tenor, at least in my part of the world and here he is singing "Can`t help falling in love"
Well, I think he has really done some wonderful singing, but when I heard this, I thought...hmmm, Elvis did it at least as good, if not even better....I mean Elvis really had the voice and everything..actually, I think Elvis could have song all the opera tunes that Andrea Bocelli does, if he had only wanted to. :wink:

He makes a fair stab at it.

But he doesn't have the moves does he ?

NO Colin, he hasn`t......I think it`s a problem to blind singers on stage(You know he`s blind.....don`t you?)......sadly, they don`t dare to move to much......only if they are sitting by the piano or something..., but your right, he is standing VERY still.....

I liked it. But in my view the ending was the least impressive part in his performance

I don't believe this. At least, not in the keys in which they were originally written.

Oh yea Spelly, I really do believe that he could have.....if he had only wanted to...
I think Elvis had the tallent and the voice....you`ll have to remember, that Andrea Bocelli has learned how to use his voice.....Elvis didn`t, but IF he had taken song leasons I do believe, that he could have done.....EVERYTHING....he almost did without anybody teaching him how, he went by tallent alone.

These days when I look in the mirror I seriously consider whether I should become dyed-in-the wool!

Dyed-in-the-wool = unchanging in a particular belief
