On January 8th, 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi Elvis Aaron Presley was born. He became a worldwide cultural icon. People can now just say "The King" and we all know who they are talking about. They are talking about Elvis! 31 movies, 18 number one songs and 1 Federal Agent at Large appointment later, Elvis remains pop culture's King.
His song Viva Las Vegas is all over the Viagra commercials, and A Little Less Conversation is on a ton of movie soundtracks. Teddy Bear was used to sell Teddy Grahams (delicious, delicious Teddy Grahams) back in the 90's. Can't Help Falling In Love With You has been covered by Ingrid Michaelson, Rick Astley, UB40, Kenny Rogers, and Julio Iglesias. Blue Suede Shoes is a cheat code for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Elvis, Elvis, everywhere you go. Couldn't have it any other way!
Happy Birthday Elvis! Love you!!!
Enjoy these pictures I took on a trip to Graceland a couple of years ago.
