Elvis Week Begins!

Posted in music by adeli on August 14, 2008

In remembrance of the 31st anniversary of Elvis Presley’s passing on August 16, 1977, it will be Elvis Week on Adeli’s Music Blog.

On August 13, 1960, Elvis’ It’s Now or Never was the Number 1 song in the U.S. and in other countries. It entered the UK charts at Number 1 and spent nine weeks at the top. This song sold more than 20 million copies worldwide, and it was Elvis’ biggest international hit. It’s Now or Never is my favorite Elvis song.

Kentucky Rain
In The Ghetto
If I Can Dream
I’ve Got A Feelin’ In My Body
Wearin’ That Loved On Look
Almost Always True (from Blue Hawaii)
Promised Land
