So hush little baby, don't you cry. You know your daddy's bound to die. But all my trials, Lord will soon be over.

A recent fascination of mine.

There's a live clip of Elvis singing "An American Trilogy" from one his famous comeback shows.... he says something to his band (on my copy at 3 mins, 30), just after the flute solo, when his band are about to go out all guns a blazin'.
Anybody know what he says?

I've never really been a fan of Elvis. I always saw him as good looking guy, with an ok voice, who was in the right place at the right time. That's not say he wasn't hugely influential, of course he was and still is. A complete inspirational for loads of people, and rightly so.
His acting was shit though, right?


These last couple of days, I've been thinking about the old hip shaker. I'd like to read more about him, but not the early stuff, the later stuff when his life began to downward spiral.
I love the internet!

The capucinno....the capuccino....the coffee was shit out of the machine at work, I saw The Blagger briefly today, he's looking ok and I miss my girlfriend.

Try this for size....
Bluebell, farm, meadow, dog, spring, daffodil, cat, nature, cow, goat, hyacinth, snake, summer, fawne?, horse, sheep and that funny word. I can't remember what it is but I know there's one there.
The fucker.

Hello there..

I was brought up with Elvis (not literally of course) but was subjected to his music around the house as a child. And I can't work out what he said either.

I remember where I was when he died..(very jfk-ish eh?) in a caravan in Wales.

Funnily enough (though not really funny at all) I was also in Wales when Princess Diana was murdered. (My alibi).

I now refuse to go to Wales at any time - just in case I'm held responsible.

beth,
Nah, I don't think it's 'fawn', I think it was a word like fawn. Or perhaps it was forne....or something.

??indeed??

266k,
Hello back!
So even a person subjected to lots of said pelvic thruster can't help. Perhaps I'm flogging a dead horse.

Where were you on the night of Kurt Cobain's 'apparent' suicide, huh?
