Have you been to Graceland?...If so, would you like to share your experience or feelings on this site?
: Yes, in 1987.
It was overwhelming to be in Graceland
I went with my Aunt Olof — and she said All my life I wanted to see this place and now I'm here and blind.
I snuck her hands over the rops every chance I got for her to touch things and described everything in detail for her.
and sad to be in other Memphis places — it felt like everyone was trying to make money off of Elvis, but without any love or respect for him or his fans.
and also, I didn't like how people thought it was so great of me to bring my blind aunt — suggesting that they wouldn't.
and I told them, actually, she won the contest and brought me.
Elvis was a trend leader and constantly "transformed" himself in his career, like Madonna & music stars are famous for doing nowdays.
Which are your favourite "Elvis eras" in his career?
: Young raw musician,

Nina below are the lyrics to the song of your favorite movie
performed by Elvis Presley
(Jerry Leiber — Mike Stoller)
There's a man in New Orleans
Who plays rock and roll
He's a guitar man
With a great big soul
He lays down a beat
Like a ton of coal
He goes by the name of King Creole
You know he's gone, gone, gone
Jumpin' like a catfish on a pole
You know he's gone, gone, gone
Hip shaking King Creole
When the king starts to do it
It's as good as done
He holds his guitar
like a tommy gun
He starts to growl
From way down his throat
He bends a string
And "that's all she wrote"
Well, he sings a song about a crowded hole
He sings a song about a jelly roll
He sings a song about meat and greens
He wails some blues about New Orleans
Well, he plays something evil
Then he plays something sweet
No matter what he plays
You got to get up on your feet
When he gets the rockin' fever
baby, heaven sakes
He don't stop playin'
'Till his guitar breaks
