Elvis Presley seemed to come from nowhere. He changed music. He scored 18? number ones on the Billboard charts and would have had more if he had not been drafted at the peak of his career.

Elvis would be 82 on January 8. He's been gone almost as long as he was alive.

Jim, Ray, or anyone,

I'll bet you get this trivia question:

Elvis recorded "Love Me Tender." Do you know the original song that the melody was derived? (Hint--a popular song during the Civil War period in this country. I remember singing it in music class in the eighth grade.

Eh, Well, No steddy eddie,
Don't know where the melody from Love Me Tender came from. But now that you mention it, there was a movie, Elvis was in it, Love Me Tender, about a civil war story if I'm not mistaken.

When Elvis came along the people in country thought he was too much rock and the rock people thought he was too country.
Elvis came along at the end of the Golden Era of Country Music and people were ready for a change. Elvis was very popular and sold tons of records.

Ray,

There is a song called "Aura Lee," written in the 19th century. Exact same melody.


As the blackbird in the spring
Neath the willow tree
Sat and piped, I heard him sing
Praising Aura Lee

Aura Lee, Aura Lee, maid with golden hair
Sunshine came along with thee, and swallows in the air

Beautiful song, though Elvis's lyrics are a bit more current, less poetic.

steady-eddie.

Good for you, Michael. I never saw him. I wish I had.
