1) Elvis Presley Quotes:

I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
Elvis Presley

"Elvis was a giant and influenced everyone in the business."
Isaac Hayes

"I learned music listening to Elvis' records. His measurable effect on culture and music was even greater in England than in the States."
Mick Fleetwood

"I remember Elvis as a young man hanging around the Sun studios. Even then, I knew this kid had a tremendous talent. He was a dynamic young boy. His phraseology, his way of looking at a song, was as unique as Sinatra's. I was a tremendous fan, and had Elvis lived, there would have been no end to his inventiveness."
B.B. King

"I don't think there is a musician today that hasn't been affected by Elvis' music. His definitive years — 1954-57 — can only be described as rock's cornerstone. He was the original cool."
Brian Setzer

Lisa Marie Quotes

∙ I'm not a big mover. Apparently I do have some mannerisms on stage.

∙ I'm not doing this to be a pop star. I've had plenty of money and attention. I'm doing it for credibility.

∙ I'm not eager to jump into marriage again. I'm in the corner right now, wearing my dunce cap. That area is obviously a nightmare.

∙ I'm not interested in attention and I don't like being gawked at. I have no interest in standing out from the crowd whatsoever. If anything, my instinct is to hide, to be reclusive.

2) Elvis Presley & other Legends

Elvis — Aloha From Hawaii

Aloha from Hawaii is an Elvis Presley music concert broadcast on the NBC television network on January 14, 1973.

The first-ever such performance to be broadcast live via satellite, Presley taped a January 12th rehearsal concert as a fail-safe in case anything went wrong with the satellite broadcast.

For both shows, Presley was dressed in a white "American Eagle" jumpsuit designed by Bill Belew.

Presley performed a vast array of old and recent hits like "Steamroller Blues", "See See Rider", "Early Morning Rain", "Burning Love", "Blue Suede Shoes", "Big Hunk O'Love", "Suspicious Minds, "Can't Help Falling In Love."

He showed his vocal range and strength with ballads like the Beatle's "Something", "I'm so Lonesome I Could Cry", "It's Over", "Welcome to my World", "I'll Remember You" and "What Now My Love". The show is probably most remembered for his performance of the "An American Trilogy".

Directed by Marty Pasetta, the broadcast was a huge success reaching an estimated audience of more than one billion.

Back on top of the world

In preparation for his Aloha From Hawaii Via Satellite special, Elvis worked hard in getting his voice and body back into shape for this live special.

Elvis wore his favorite jumpsuit- the American Eagle, this suite was designed specifically for the concert.

The stage was created to have Elvis as close to his fans as possible.A full dress rehearsal was organised, filmed and taped incase the live perfomance ran into unexpected difficulties.

All was set to go, Elvis charged onto the stage. He was in great voice, great shape and the way in which Elvis shook his body in time with the strong rhythm, supplied by Jerry Scheff's stomping bass lines, sent shivers down the spines of millions.

Perhaps the most dramatic moment came when Elvis threw his cape into the audience as the band hit the closing notes of "Can't Help Falling in Love" and he left the stage knowing full well that he was still the king of rock'n'roll.

G'Day Debbie,

Thank you for taking part in our survey. Separate ways is a great favorite of mine also. Many of his songs say so much about the man, who became the "King".
To think he started out as a truck driver. Then changed Rock and Roll, giving his fans some fantastic music to continue to enjoy, he was a remarkable man. His memory lives on.

4) Favourite Elvis song Lyrics for
"In the Ghetto"

This new feature of our ezine is for karaoke superstars & the fans that just like to sing-along with the King.

(words & music by Scott Davis)

As the snow flies
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin
A poor little baby child is born
In the ghetto
And his mama cries
cause if theres one thing that she dont need
Its another hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto

People, dont you understand
The child needs a helping hand
Or hell grow to be an angry young man some day
Take a look at you and me,
Are we too blind to see,
Do we simply turn our heads
And look the other way

Well the world turns
And a hungry little boy with a runny nose
Plays in the street as the cold wind blows
In the ghetto

And his hunger burns
So he starts to roam the streets at night
And he learns how to steal
And he learns how to fight
In the ghetto

Then one night in desperation
A young man breaks away
He buys a gun, steals a car,
Tries to run, but he dont get far
And his mama cries

As a crowd gathers round an angry young man
Face down on the street with a gun in his hand
In the ghetto

As her young man dies,
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin,
Another little baby child is born
In the ghetto

5) Party Planner tips:

This new feature of our ezine is a bonus home entertaining guide for all you party animals.

This article provides you with information, ideas and tips on organizing stuff related to party planning and activities and themes which adds up to the excitement of the event.

Must-Do Activities

Coming up with unique activities should not be a problem in organizing your anniversary party. If you are a busy type, you may want to hire the service of a professional organizing institution.

But today, due to the rising cost of consultancy and event coordinating agencies, individuals themselves together with a number of relatives organize most party events.

However, this option should still be reserved for people whose budget is tight and if they prefer to make things as personal as possible.

Among a host of activities and preparations that you will need to do in party planning are the following:

Party Invitations √ You should leave this one to the expert for this contains all-important information about the party, things that guests may expect in the occasion.

It is important that invitations are carefully crafted in order to put up a good impression among those who are invited in the occasion.

Speech Writers √ If you are into public speaking and would like to give a personal touch to the special occasion, you may organize and create your own speech program and start gathering ideas.

Videography √ A party is such a short event and your purpose is not to live by the moment but to revive and capture all the essentials and happy memories of the occasion.

This can be done through video presentation taken during the party. Transfer it to a DVD tape and distribute it to your relatives.

Slide Show production √ Slide shows are particularly interesting if you are to transform photos into retrospective video album type.

If you are celebrating anniversaries among couples, ask for one or two old pictures from your relatives of their parents and have them compiled for video purposes. You can ask the help of a videographer on how they can put them into music.

Anniversary Gifts/Party Favors √ Party is not complete without give-aways. The most popular party favors today are music CDs with songs used in the entire occasion.

8) Editor’s Notes & Fun Stuff:

Some humour to put a smile on your face!


To those of us who have children in our lives,
whether they are our own,
or students...
here is something to make you chuckle.

Whenever your children are out of control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God's omnipotence did not extend to His own children.

After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve.

And the first thing he said was

"Don't what?"
Adam replied.

"Don't eat the forbidden fruit."
God said.

"Forbidden fruit?
We have forbidden fruit?
Hey Eve..we have forbidden fruit!"

"No Way!"

"Yes way!"

"Do NOT eat the fruit! " said God.


"Because I am your Father and I said so! "

God replied, wondering why He hadn't stopped creation after making the elephants.

A few minutes later, God saw His children having an apple break and He was ticked!

"Didn't I tell you not to eat the fruit?" God asked.

"Uh huh," Adam replied.

"Then why did you? " said the Father.

"I don't know," said Eve.

"She started it! " Adam said.

"Did not! "

"Did too! "


Having had it with the two of them, God's punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own.

Thus the pattern was set and it has never changed.


If you have persistently and lovingly tried to give children wisdom and they haven't taken it, don't be hard on yourself.

If God had trouble raising children, what makes you think it would be a piece of cake for you?


1. You spend the first two years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next sixteen telling them to sit down and shut up.

2. Grandchildren are God's reward for not killing your own children.

3. Mothers of teens now know why some animals eat their young.

4. Children seldom misquote you.

In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn't have said.

5. The main purpose of holding children's parties is to remind yourself that there are children more awful than your own.

6. We childproofed our homes, but they are still getting in.


Be nice to your kids. They will choose your nursing home one day.
