Mon Jan 30, 2006 12:48 pm

i know this is a hard one to answer as i myself love allmost every song elvis has recorded.but if had to pick one song that i can not live without and for me defines the king it would be DONT BE CRUEL (i even have it as my ring tone on my mobile).i have been a fan for over 30 years and it still makes the hair stand on the back of my neck.so i was just wondering if everyone else has one song they can pick that is there best elvis song in the world ever or is there just to many ?

This post could be in the ALL ELVIUS section.

Well, very hard but I will try to think in one and post later.

A big hunk o' love (the original single release)

It got me hooked on Elvis' music. I did not understand a word of it. It was just the feeling of the song.
It got me interested to learn English and to hear more Elvis music.

For me, it can only be Elvis' version of Bridge Over Troubled Water.

For me it has to be Hound Dog. A rock and roll masterpiece like only Elvis in 1956 could sing it.

If i had to pick one song it would be 'Never Ending'.The first time i heard it i wasnt that big of a fan but it sent a shiver down my spine.Even before Elvis started singing it.

But please dont ever ask me to pick ONE song again. There are just too many songs to chose from. :wink:

Elvis and "An American Trilogy" just fit like a glove. That's the song for me!

Carolyn is having trouble posting, but she asked me to post for her.

She wanted me to mention that her all-time favorite is of course, Burning Love.

You're welcome, Carolyn.

Interesting choice Sean. This could've been a classic IMO but was ruined by the incredibly twee chorus. I can see why you like it so much though.

'Rags To Riches' for me.
