I would like to wish The King a very happy 73rd birthday. Long Live The King! What is your favorite Elvis song? Movie? I love Are You Lonesome Tonight and Love Me. and my favorite films are Flaming Star and Viva Las Vegas. I just saw Viva Las Vegas and I will hear my favorite Elvis later tonight. Do you celebrate Elvis birthday? And if you do, how?I always see at least one Elvis film and I listen to at least my favorite songs.

I don't celebrate unless I listen to something on the radio and they have a tribute. I have however made the journey to Graceland and stood at his grave. I also have all my origional albums from high school of his.....I love Are you lonesome tonight and his other more mellow sounds. Wasn't ever crazy about Blue Suede Shoes or Hounddog......I also have the video of his last concert in Hawaii......He would still be the king if he had lived on...So happy birthday Elvis!

Yes....and bawled when I stood in front of his grave! Went across the street to his museum and got to go through both of his planes! It was very very interesting....the funny thing was that we were not allowed to go upstairs of the mansion! Strange....they said someone was living up there at the time...this was about 17 years ago...weird.

Yes, I also thought it was weird that the upstairs was closed off because someone was living there...Lisa Marie maybe? It would drive me crazy to have strangers coming into my home everyday, but I know there was a tremendous amount of money made doing this. I loved everything that I saw at Graceland. The gravesite was very sad to see. Chills and tears until I left the site. His planes were awesome. PEACE

My favourite Elvis song is suspicous mind and hounddog. I think those are the best songs ever, but of course he has more great songs. If he hadn't he wouldn't be a legend. Hmm I haven't seen movies with Elvis in it...

Well there are two types of Elvis movies. One is the musical and the other is drama.If you want to see Elvis sing and dance and have a good time, rent Viva Las Vegas.But if you want to see Elvis act, see either Flaming Star or Love Me Tender. If you want to see both, see Jailhouse Rock.

73!! I wonder if he would still be dying his hair black. Even though he probably would be, I think it would be cool to have seen him with a silver head of hair. My favorite songs by The King are his gospel songs. How Great Thou Art always makes my hairs stand on edge from the chills I get just hearing him sing it. My favorite movies of his are Jailhouse Rock and Viva Las Vegas. PEACE

It is obvious that you are Elvis's fan. I like his songs but I am not his fan. Elvis has some nice songs such as Always on my mind, Love me tender, Can't help falling in love with you etc.
