Thanks to Steve Goddard and Tom Peake for introducing me to some [lastfm]Elvis Presley[/lastfm] tracks I hadn’t previously heard. I’ll admit, while I enjoy his music, I’m nowhere near “Elvis historian” status. I DO have a favorite Elvis song. But, it’s NOT an Elvis song! It is one of his covers. Think you know which one?
“Bridge Over Troubled Water” always sends chills up my spine. It’s easily my favorite [lastfm]Simon & Garfunkel[/lastfm] record, and it’s Art singing! Go figure. [lastfm]Aretha Franklin[/lastfm] did her own version, and that was pretty good. But, for a cover, I think Elvis absolutely NAILED it.
So, my favorite Elvis song isn’t an Elvis song at all. I hope I don’t lose points!
