Love for the King never dies…

I’ve been watching Lois & Clark the New Adventures of Superman as well as Stitch lately, and both of the shows reminds me of Elvis. (Cuz the character Perry White from Superman and the doggy-alien Stitch adores Elvis)

And like Stitch and Perry… I love the King too. The King had such a strong voice, and all of his songs are memorable and evergreen. They are just timeless. I grew up with his songs, and I remembered dancing on my father’s feet to those songs when I was just a little girl.

My all time favourite from the King himself are the songs below. Just like Stitch and Perry. My my… why the hell am I not some fictional character? I shared quite a lot of traits with a lot of fictional characters!


Hound Dog

You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog

Cryin’ all the time

You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog

Cryin’ all the time

Well, you ain’t never caught a rabbit

And you ain’t no friend of mine

Well they said you was high-classed

Well, that was just a lie

Yeah they said you was high-classed

Well, that was just a lie

Well, you ain’t never caught a rabbit

And you ain’t no friend of mine

You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog

Cryin’ all the time

You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog

Cryin’ all the time

Well, you ain’t never caught a rabbit

And you ain’t no friend of mine

[instrumental interlude]

Well they said you was high-classed

Well, that was just a lie

Yeah they said you was high-classed

Well, that was just a lie

Well, you ain’t never caught a rabbit

And you ain’t no friend of mine

[instrumental interlude]

Well they said you was high-classed

Well, that was just a lie

Ya know they said you was high-classed

Well, that was just a lie

Well, you ain’t never caught a rabbit

And you ain’t no friend of mine

You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog

Cryin’ all the time

You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog

Cryin’ all the time

Well, you ain’t never caught a rabbit

You ain’t no friend of mine

Fools Rush In

Wise Men say

only fools rush in

but I cant help

falling in love with you

Shall I stay

would it be a sin

if I can’t help falling in love with you…

Like a river flows, surely to the sea

Darlin so it goes, somethings are meant to be..

Take my hand, take my whole life too

for I can’t help fallin in love with you…

Like a river flows, surely to the sea

Darlin so it goes, somethings are meant to be..

Take my hand take my whole life too for I cant help

falling in love with you

for I cant help falling in love with…… you.

Heartbreak Hotel

Well, since my baby left me,

Well I found a new place to dwell.

Well It’s down at the end of Lonely Street

At Heartbreak Hotel.

Where I’ll be…

I’ve been so lonely baby,

Well I’m so lonely,

I’ll be so lonely I could die.

Oh although it’s always crowded,

You still can find some room.

For broken hearted lovers

To cry away their gloom.

They’ll be so…

They’ve been so lonely baby

They’ll be so lonely,

They’re so lonely they could die.

Now, the bell hop’s tears keep flowin’,

and the desk clerk’s dressed in black.

Well they been so long on Lonely Street

They never ever look back.

They’ll be so…

And its so lonely baby,

Well they’re so lonely,

Well they’re so lonely they could die.

Well, if your baby leaves you,

And you got a tale to tell.

Well just take a walk down Lonely Street

To Heartbreak Hotel.

Where you will be…

You’ll be so lonely baby

Where you’ll be lonely

You’ll be so lonely you could die.

Oh although it’s always crowded

You still can find some room.

For broken hearted lovers to cry away their gloom.

They’ll be so…

They’ve been so lonely baby

Well they’re so lonely

They’ll be so lonely they could die.

Do you have any particular favourite from the King? 😀

Cleffairy: Can you hear me singing a medley over here… “You’re nothing but a hound dog, barking all the time… but I can’t help, falling in love with you… Well just take a walk down Lonely Street… To Heartbreak Hotel
They’ll be so lonely they could die….!” God forbids my world from drowning… hahaha… I don’t think my voice could actually sound like a sweet siren that could lead the sailors to their deaths. My voice can be likened to a toad. *ribbit… ribbitt… * (Kiss me and I’ll turn into a princess? LMAO! Gee… I can go on and on and dream!)

    Ah…Can’t help falling in love – I sing that at weddings! Btw, should suggest a friend of mine to you on Facebook – a die-hard Elvis fan and Elvis impersonator. Will be going to KL…for some Elvis impersonators’ show or something.

      Gosh… you really got the guts to go and sing in public ah, Cikgu. I can never do that, though I wish I have enough courage to do so. LOL…

      Ooo… Elvis impersonator? I tot they’re all in Vegas! Malaysia oso got ah?

      I love Elvis’s song… hahahah… so meaningful and sounds so nice. Nothing compares to the original. I find some of those modernization are somewhat… awkward.
