I'm selling my Elvis collection on eBay!

I've got it all digitally, so it's time to get rid of my vinyl! I don't have a turntable, so can't vouch for the playability, but I've tried to describe as much as I can based on visual inspection and post photos. It'll take a while to get 'em all posted out there, so there's more coming soon!

Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Elvis' Songs

...One Song At A Time

"A lot has been written and said about why he was so great, but I think the best way to appreciate his greatness is just to go back and play some of the old records."

---Huey Lewis---

Yeah! Preach it, Brother Huey!




I'm sure you've already heard about Elvis' "cultural importance". Yeah, yeah, that's nice, but c'mon, Elvis was a singer! Let's talk about the songs!


Elvis recorded around 800 songs over the span of almost 25 years. Even the most die-hard fan must admit that the songs, shall we say, uh, varied in quality! There's no objective gauge for these things, although I think we can all agree that "Jailhouse Rock" is a few notches above "Yoga Is As Yoga Does"! ...and the songs we don't agree on... well, that's where the fun begins!


Click on the alphabetic lists to the left to narrow it down, then the song title and get all the details on that song:

  • recording date details
  • chart position
  • a little history
  • ...and of course, my spin on the song.
If it's a song that you particularly love (or hate!), post your spin on it, too!


I've got a long list of songs to write about, so I'm starting with the songs that were released as singles, going alphabetically, and I'll fill in the rest later. Be patient with me. This ought to take a lifetime or two!

Enjoy!
