Elvis Presley – my Music A to Z



Elvis Presley is my favorite. I have loved him all of my life. I grew up watching Elvis movies with my mom on Sundays. I became a fan of his movies before I became a fan of his music. But it wasn’t until the mid 1990s that I became a true fan. Ok let’s be honest, I am obsessed with Elvis Presley. It is basically the reason I moved to Memphis and lived there for three years. I visited Graceland and Sun Studio regularly. I have everything Elvis, including every book written about him, all his movies and videos, and obviously all of his songs. But more than that, I have lots of Elvis memorabilia – I could open an Elvis gift shop.

I love Elvis because he is beautiful inside and out. He was so generous, charismatic, talented, passionate and gorgeous! My favorite Elvis Presley songs are Heartbreak Hotel, Loving Arms, Just Pretend, Love Me and American Trilogy. My favorite Elvis Presley movies are Girl Happy, Wild in the Country, Jailhouse Rock, Loving You and Viva Las Vegas. Even though Girl Happy is a cheesy 1960s beach movie, I love it because it was my favorite growing up because one of main characters is named Deena. I got such a kick out of Elvis saying my name, and to be honest I still do. I have been lucky enough to meet a lot of Elvis’ friends, band members, co-stars, and most importantly his daughter Lisa Marie – more on her later.

This blog post is part of my A to Z April Challenge about ‘My Music’ – music I love from A to Z. Thanks for stopping by. I am also blogging the A to Z Challenge on my other blog On the Road with U2 about ‘My U2′ – what I love about U2 from A to Z.
