1) Elvis Presley Quotes:

Lisa Marie Presley quotes

Anything my father did for me or gave me was done out of love. I'm sure I had moments when I was a snot. But my mom was there to smack me back to the other side.

Being Elvis Presley's daughter is a whole lot of pressure. It's been a constant burden in my life.

Facing the press is endlessly daunting for me. But I am learning to use it to my advantage. If the tabloids come up with the latest ridiculous lie about me — and they always do — then now I can rectify it the following week in a proper interview with a serious newspaper. That's a novelty.

2) Music Legends Biography Article:


When Elvis began putting together his collection of music for his comeback, he was able to reflect on many years of a great range of popular American music, including his own and that of other’s.

Elvis was blessed with a natural talent to sing just about anything, but he also needed to feel as comfortable with his selected material, as he was around the guys that worked for him.

Elvis was well aware he had an audience to please, but if he was in the mood and wanted to do something different, he would also please himself, as long as he did it his way.

In his selection of music were the Elvis Golden Oldies, which were always great crowd-pleasing favorites they included≈"That’s All Right (Mama)," "Cant Help Falling In Love," "Love Me Tender," "Heartbreak Hotel," "All Shock Up," "Hound Dog," "Trying to Get to You," "Jailhouse Rock"≈many of these songs are now used in a shortened form and put in suitable medleys.

The new range of material that found its way into his performance says a great deal about his existence and image.

Elvis required a personal "hold" in everything that he did; which might come from the style of the music, but most of the time it was more likely to come from something in the lyric, which would allow him to express himself.

Elvis knew that the only thing that would help the music stay fresh, alive, and take a hold on the audience was to add his personal touch with a meaningful opening.

Elvis wasn’t one to sing a song unless he felt it; he had to feel it in his heart, for that’s where he sang from and that’s what made him a famous star.

No matter what he sang it had to fit him perfectly, and it is obvious when going through songs he sang over the years, and hearing the personal connections that were evident in his life.

The guys in the group were often on the lookout for new material to try out on the boss, like Simon and Garfunkel’s moving classic, "Bridge Over Trouble Water," a song Elvis found instantly challenging and emotionally powerful.

When Elvis performed "Bridge Over Trouble Water," his trembling body quivers, his head rolls on his shoulders, while clinching his fists letting the sweat pour down his face, and when he gets to "I’ve Lost You" he is down on his knees as if death is the only option: as the tears streak the mascara.

Creedence Clearwater Revival’s traditional, "Proud Mary," allowed the kind of vocal expression Elvis loved, as did Tony Joe White’s "Polk Salad Annie" also having the same excited reaction.

Then there were the songs he sang for special reasons. A Marty Robbins’s hit, "You Gave Me A Mountain" expressed his need to persist, remain strong, continue with strength after his divorce, and the sadness of being without his daughter.

"American Trilogy," one Elvis put together, as a tribute to the dignity of his country and its tradition. Only Elvis could have pulled it off with such perfection.

In the end Elvis’s variety of musical material, remained a very profitable mixture of his past and present; his music was the glue that held together all those dissimilar basics in his life.

In private Elvis enjoyed the theatrical numbers with vocal back up, he was attracted to the many voices hitting at one time, from the lowest bass to the highest peak tenors and sopranos reaching the same note. Elvis loved the force behind it.

Mostly, Elvis took pleasure in listening to gospel. Elvis strongly believed, there was nothing as influential or inspirational than the good gospel music, he would carry around a case of a hundred or so albums≈most of them were gospel music.

Listening to his chosen gospel music was a means for Elvis to get in touch with his roots; he often used this music for giving praise to the Lord when feeling humble and thankful, which he regularly did. The Bible says to sing praise and lift your voice to Him.

When Elvis sang "How Great Thou Art" he felt it in his soul, with such feeling and meaning he had the power in him to move mountains. Elvis quite often liked to listen to Mahalia Jackson, who was to Elvis, the Queen of Gospel.

5) Editor’s Notes & Humor:

Editor’s Note:

Some good life philosophies

* Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.

* Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

* Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.

* Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.

* If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

* If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

* It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

* Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to stand on.

* Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.

* Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.

* The second mouse gets the cheese.

* When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

* Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.

* We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.
