Songs I wish E had NOT recorded...

Fri Sep 30, 2005 4:16 pm

Ref. to the thread regarding songs we wish E had recorded,
I find myself instead thinking about which songs I prefer he'd never recorded, such as

Old McDonald
Dominic
Scratch My Back
Queenie Wahine's Papaya


and so on...

What's yours?

Good job he recorded Confidence to redeem himself..!?

Spot on!

C-O-N-F-I-D-E-N-C-E has to rank very high on this list!

Roy Bennett and Sid Tepper must have been drunk when they wrote this crap!

And Elvis surely must have been on something, in order to get this so called song recorded!

Polk Salad Annie (just kidding...this is one I most like) :D

Well, I hate "Confidence"

Fri Sep 30, 2005 4:38 pm

Confidence

But whats more embarrasing is the scene from the movie when he sings it..

Fri Sep 30, 2005 4:41 pm

I don't mean to be a complete cynic, but how you can you wish Elvis hadn't recorded this song or that song?? I mean, that's like saying I wish Mozart hadn't written this piece or that piece or I wish Michelangelo hadn't painted this or that. Not that I'm comparing Elvis to these two, but it just seems ridiculous to do this. For every person who hates Old MacDonald, there are probably hundreds who just love it (well, maybe not hundreds, but you get the point). familyjules wishes Elvis had not recorded Fool, but I happen to love that song and think Elvis' voice was near perfection.
One man's trash, is another man's treasure.

P.S. OK, I may have been way off on that whole Old MacDonald thing :oops:

Tom:

I get your point, and I partly agree with you.

But I think most of us believe that Elvis' legacy would've been better off if he'd not recorded certain songs, for instance C-O-N-F-I-D-E-N-C-E and Old McDonald!

I take it all back since mentioning Confidence I can't stop singing it....

put them all together and what have you got!

Fri Sep 30, 2005 4:57 pm

80% of the material recorded from 1962-68 (even though I sometimes listen to it in private.)

Fri Sep 30, 2005 5:00 pm

Okay, since it's Friday and all...
Let's all sing along to this Tepper, Bennett classic! :wink: :lol:

When everyone thought the world was flat
Columbus said "It's round"
He went down in history
And America was found

'Cause
He had confidence
A little thing called confidence
There's no job too immense when you've got
Confidence

With a "C" and an "O" and an "N" and an "F"
And an "I" and a "D" and an "ENCE"
Put 'em all together and what have you got

Confidence

You'll be surprised what you can do
If you will only try

Remember the tortoise and the hare
Who had that famous race
The speedy hare wound up nowhere
And slow poke took first place

'Cause
He had confidence
A little thing called confidence
There's no job too immense when you've got
Confidence

You'll be surprised what you can do
If you will only try

How do you know that you can't ride a rainbow in the sky

You'll be surprised what you can do
If you will only try

All you need is confidence
A little thing called confidence
There's no job too immense when you've got
Confidence

With a "C" and an "O" and an "N" and an "F"
And an "I" and a "D" and an "ENCE"
Put 'em all together and what have you got

Confidence
Confi ..... Confi .... Confidence

I liked Old MacDonald because I heard it first as a kid. And I did insert Have a Happy on one of my kids birthday party videos. He loved it.

CONFIDENCE (terrible, terrible!!! Poor Elvis when he had to record that)

Fri Sep 30, 2005 5:11 pm

My daughters love Old Macdonald! I have played it over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over (you're still reading!) and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.
OK, where's that sharp knife??

Maybe you all are going to kill me, but I like "Old Macdonald" :oops: :oops:

You're dead.

An oft overlooked apalling song in my opinion is Barefoot Ballad from the Kissin' Cousins soundtrack album. Now that is crap!!

I can't stand the film, but I guess perhaps E was supposed to be drunk on Moonshine or something when he sings this in the film - I can think of no other excuse (please don't disillusion me if that is not the case!!)

I much prefer CONFIDENCE to that one, but along with most sane fans I also despise Old Macdonald completely!!

Just what is a Mulligan stew anyway? :lol:

Fri Sep 30, 2005 5:25 pm

Der - can't believe you did not know that!!! :wink:

Definition: Said to have originated in hobo camps during the early 1900s, mulligan stew is a sort of catch-all dish of whatever is available. It usually contains meat, potatoes and vegetables in just about any combination. The name indicates that its origins might come from Irish stew, but it's also often compared to Kentucky burgoo. The cook at a hobo camp responsible for putting this tasty concoction together was called a "mulligan-mixer."
