Elvis Presley! Great pick. I used to not know that I can't help falling in love with you was by him. There's a version of that I heard in the 90s. Happy Monday!

I'm glad you decided to feature Elvis. Those are two of my faves :)

Stacy Uncorked said...

MMMM: To the Sky

Ms Bibi said...

What awesome choice. I haven't heard Elvis in ages.Once in awhile I think of him and I play him for few days...

Joanie said...

Great choices, Lorie!! I Can't Help Falling In Love With You is my all-time favorite Elvis song. when I was young, I wanted that to be my song when I got married. When I did get married, we did not dance to this song. I can't even remember what we did dance to!

Run DMT said...

Well, Happy Birthday, Elvis! Great picks to celebrate the day! :-)

Xmas Dolly said...

What a marvelous voice he had. My cousin is so ga ga over that man! She's got everything Elvis, but is any human being meant to be the King of anything? I think it's much to much for any one man to handle. I personally like to think he's somewhere living out his days peacefully. Maybe sitting on a rock somewhere playing his acoustic loving nature. He deserves it!

JamericanSpice said...

Happy Birthday to Elvis.

I love that first song! Love it.

Love the song choices.

Enjoy the rest of the week.

Peggy said...

I never forget Elvis's birthday, cause my son shares it with him.
Elvis will always be the King to me, love your song picks today!
Can't go wrong with me, I have a huge picture of him in my closet!
Have a great week Lorie!

coopernicus said...

i know this is sacrilege...but elvis just doesn't do it for me. the only two songs i like are late-career elvis: Suspicious Minds and In The Ghetto. In can appreciate the contributions he made to the growth of rock 'n' roll, but that's about it.

Flying Giggles and Lollipops said...

I love "Can't Help Falling In Love" it is such a beautiful song!

anonynoose said...

Those are definitely Elvis' best two mushy songs. I love them both to bits! Happy MMMM Lorie!!

Kate said...

Fabulous choices!
BTW I hope you enjoyed watching Dirty Dancing again. :O)

Kayla @ TheEclecticElement said...

Ahhhh, Elvis.... *swoon*
Great picks Lorie!

Carleen said...

I was lucky enough to have seen Elvis in concert when I was a teenager; he, however, was considerably older and died just a couple of years later. Although by that time he was known as the "fat" Elvis, I didn't care -- he was still handsome, sang like nobody else, and put on quite a show.

I hope that I will be able to figure out how to find y'all again next Monday because this has been one heck of a fun meme!

Alexis AKA MOM said...

As always love ur pick.

Classic NYer said...

::swoon:: I love these songs! I just heard Can't Help Falling in Love a couple of days ago and now again... this is confirmation that I have to learn the song, haha!

Cakeblast said...

Elvis is the ultimate rock and roll icon. Great choices.
