Oh Elvis! Besides knowing Loretta, who is obsessed with him, I have two memories of Elvis. The first is when I was fourteen. My neighbor Patty and I went to see "Love Me Tender", along with a couple hundred other teenage girls. Anyone remember when children's tickets were .25? The theatre had a curtain and stage, as it was used for community events. As soon as that curtain started to part, the screaming started. The lights went down, they got louder. Then his name appeared. We didn't hear any of the movie. Girls even rushed the stage as if Elvis were really there. My second memory was when I was a slot attendant in a casino, where there was a bank of Elvis machines that played one of his songs on a hit. One day I came across a young couple standing and holding hands as they swayed to "The Wonder Of You", with tears in their eyes.  They told me it was going to be the song for their first dance at their wedding. I don't think they even cared much about the money they won.

I was not really an Elvis fan (horrors!) as I was under 10 years old when he became famous, but learned to appreciate him as I became a teen.  Guess my favorite song was Can't Help Falling in Love with You.  I thought he could have been a very fine actor if given the chance, but Colonel Parker did not let him do it.  I loved the early movies before he went into the army and a few afterwards.  It was a shame that he used drugs, as did many singers and artists.  It seems they never learn.

In the Ghetto.   I remember watching every movie he had on tv not once but over and over.

Seeing him perform in person three times I will never forget. That voice that face that smile There will never be another. I loved so many of his songs I can't choose just a few. He will always be number One.
