    This is one of my favorites. Lots of Elvis videos out there, but since I like to include the lyrics in my posts so folks may read along, this serves both purposes. Besides, I can just close my eyes and see him in my head. :cool2:

    I put 2 songs in the "sad songs" thread, both Elvis tunes that his daughter pulled the recordings that had tape with them of his performance and then performed them onstage "with" Elvis. Lots of people don't like her singing or her or whatever the case may be, but she was young when these were done and on Don't Cry Daddy you can tell she hadn't sung in public much, or it was kinda hard for her to get through it.

    The second one was In the Ghetto-- A very controversial song when he released it, and she does a real good job accompanying him on that one. I think she had a real deep rich voice for her age and I am sure she had a lot of emotion going through her head at the time, with him passed and all. Be hard for anybody to do I think.

    I won't repost here but you can bop over there in that thread and listen if you like and post a sad song of your own :)

    Happy Birthday Elvis, sorry you had to leave the building so soon.

    Why do y'all talk about him in the past tense.
    He's doing fine; lives up a little creek off the Ohio River. He waved to me the other day when I was netting shad:wink:...W
