January 8 is a hip wiggling, lip curling, scarf flinging sort of day.
It’s Elvis’ birthday.
He would have been 74 today if he’d laid off the deep fried foods and slowed up on the pill popping
What’s your favorite Elvis song?
It’s so hard to choose, but I’m a bit partial to Blue Moon of Kentucky. I think it’s the simplicity of the whole thing. It was on the flip side of his big debut – That’s All Right Mama – on Sun Records. Of course Bill Monroe does a pretty fair non-rockabilly version of the tune as well.
