Are you kidding me?Padre is awful and Elvis voice is far from the best.Also I really dislike the studio master of fairytale......The alternate take(s) and some of the live versions are much better.
Just my opinion though.... :wink:

In my opinion Elvis showed some of his best vocals on the song....

Hey Jude and Yesterday are wayyy too Beatleley in my book and besides the obvious Ito Eats and crap like that I could have done without Heart of Rome.....I love Elvis early 70's but this song annoys the hell out of me

Hey Jude, Lady Madonna, Get Back.

Sorry to quote myself...but I just thought of that version where Elvis sings 'I take a piss in every fountain' which is obviously my favourite Heart of Rome....if there is any

Nooooooooooooooooo...why Sweet Caroline? He made this song so much better!

I too love Sweet Caroline. I loved his version on Thats The Way It Is, his little swing of the arms. I was so disappointed when it was not included on the special addition.

In fact the songs quoted above are very good....to my ears at least.

The whole Speedway album. Yes, every single track.

We might not want to knock those who like certain songs that others are not fond of. What fun would it be if everyone on here liked and disliked exactly the same material?

That's what makes it fun to be an Elvis fan. I'm glad we all like different things. So we shouldn't criticize those who like something different than you.

Afterall, it's not their fault that they are tone deaf and like Padre.

It's not their fault that they are mental and like Song Of The Shrimp.

It's not their fault that they are a complete and total moron if they like Yoga Is As Yoga Does.

So get off their back and stop criticizing them!

Mon Oct 03, 2005 8:32 am

as Elvis said

don't criticize what you don't understand son, you never stood in that mans shoes.
(or womans depending) :lol:

Mon Oct 03, 2005 8:33 am

womans shoes? hi heel sneakers! :D 8)

Mon Oct 03, 2005 9:03 am

ok, sweet caroline, high heeled sneakers etc...are all favs of mine.

song of the shrimp is so sadisticly funny, that it's hysterical. it's the let's make you care about your food song and making you feel sorry for the poor little shrimpies. roflmao. it has to get the award for being absolutely the saddest animal song ever after old shep (WHICH I LOVE, because it really is a classic song--which admittedly song of the shrimp is not). song of the shrimp is like watching bambi.

i double over in laughter until my eyes water whenever the verse about the baby shrimp telling the mama shrimp he's going for a trip to louisiane. :lol:

and i like old mcdonald way more than dominic. old mcdonald--especially with the scene is hilarious to me. ok, so i have no problems against children's songs...and let's face it--it's without a doubt the best version ever recorded. sure beats "wee can sing".

i hate the impossible dream. gag me with a spoon. i always push next on my cd player. it has to do with it bringing up really bad memories of the song from rehab. i tried to plug my ears then, and not even elvis could save it (and that is rare).

not fond of it's impossible either, for that matter.

any song featuring the whiny voice of shelly fabares is grinding and unlistenable. god, why! why! did they ever allow her to sing on an elvis track???!!!
