Elvis Presley
Every hound dog has his day
Long live the king, but now we really must be movin' on
Viva Las Vegas
It's been fun, but now it's truely over
Such a shame that this is how we have to end
Poisoned by the pressures of too much, too soon 
Really now for sure the king has left the building
Even his most beloved friends did't know until now that he was still out there
Slowly but surely preparing to rejoin the world of the living, until fate stepped in to take away that chance
Loved them so much that he would have given up the peace of mind that came with finally being free
Every day now for forever we shall mourn the loss of this always great man
Youthful, full of life, and yearning
Always yearning, but never quite finding his way out
Out of the trap that fame and fortune made of his life
2008 Ramona Thompson

Elvis had a beautiful voice but I was never overly fond of all
that over the top persona he displayed. This is a nice tribute.

Those songs when he's singing in that B minor has always amazed me.  I was never into Elvis growing up but you look at what he was doing in the 50's and early 60's is exceptional, in my opinion.  I've never been a huge fan but respect what he had done.  I like playing a few of his songs on the guitar because of the chord arrangements.  Some are kind of brilliant.
