The Essential Elvis Presley

The Essential Elvis Presley

One of the most famous singers of the 20th century, Elvis Presley is still very popular even today. This is a big collection of his hits from the 50s to the 70s. My favorite songs from the 50s are "All Shook Up", "Blue Suede Shoes", "Don't Be Cruel", "That's All Right", "Hound Dog", "Jailhouse Rock", and "Love Me Tender". My favorite 60s songs are "Suspicious Minds", "Are You Lonesome Tonight", "Memories", and "In the Ghetto". "Burning Love" is one of my favorite 70s songs. Many more of his songs are on this collection. I also like the Elvis on Tour musical documentary.
