Happy Birthday to my first love .... and happy birthday to my niece, Cheryl (who always hated it when I'd say "hey, it's Elvis Presley's birthday today! lol)

Michelle's profile shows she is 15. Elvis was just breaking into the business big time when I was her age. Isn't it interesting how his music has held up over the years and appeals to a new audience.

I wonder how his music would have changed had he lived to be 74. For instance, Tony Bennett still sings as he did 50 years ago. Do you think Elvis' style would have continued through the years unchanged?

What is your favorite Elvis lyric?

Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again?
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

This is a whole song, but really like the lyrics to Memories~

Memories, pressed between the pages of my mind
Memories, sweetened thru the ages just like wine

Quiet thought come floating down
And settle softly to the ground
Like golden autumn leaves around my feet
I touched them and they burst apart with sweet memories,
Sweet memories

Of holding hands and red bouquets
And twilight trimmed in purple haze
And laughing eyes and simple ways
And quiet nights and gentle days with you

Memories, pressed between the pages of my mind
Memories, sweetened thru the ages just like wine,
Memories, memories, sweet memories

One is the same as Leah's from Can't Help Falling In Love and the other is from If I Can Dream...
Actually the whole song has a powerful message....
(words & music by brown)
There must be lights burning brighter somewhere
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue
If I can dream of a better land
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
Tell me why, oh why, oh why cant my dream come true

There must be peace and understanding sometime
Strong winds of promise that will blow away
All the doubt and fear
If I can dream of a warmer sun
Where hope keeps shining on everyone
Tell me why, oh why, oh why wont that sun appear

Were lost in a cloud
With too much rain
Were trapped in a world
Thats troubled with pain
But as long as a man
Has the strength to dream
He can redeem his soul and fly

Deep in my heart theres a trembling question
Still I am sure that the answer gonna come somehow
Out there in the dark, theres a beckoning candle
And while I can think, while I can talk
While I can stand, while I can walk
While I can dream, please let my dream
Come true, right now
Let it come true right now
Oh yeah
