    ...If you have any, what are they?

    Although it's hard to pick favorites, the songs by Elvis that I listen to the most are:
    Suspicious Minds
    Hounddog
    Don't be Cruel
    Devil In Disguise
    Jailhouse Rock

    Silly as it is, I have a fondness for G.I. Blues.

    In the Ghetto. Seems like his only 'protest' song.

    Not a huge fan, but 'Heartbreak Hotel' is a classic

    Its a tie between "baby lets play house" and "shake, rattle and roll".

    Never cared for Elvis' music, but to pick a favorite, it'd be between Suspicious Minds and Burnin' Love.

    Seconded.

    I also enjoy King Creole.

    Agreed -- that's the only one I really like.

    This thread comes dangerously close to exposing a long held dillusion. That is that Elvis sang on a lot of great songs. I have the Complete Sun recordings and have heard all the rest of the tunes. There aren't that many jewels from one who so consumes late 20th century pop lore.

    I have a high school friend who has a sideline business (I think it's just a sideline) of doing an Elvis impersonation show for parties and at clubs. I'm baffled. I wasn't that crazy about him* alive or undead.


    edit: * Elvis, not the high school friend!
