Best "new" by Elvis song released after august 16 1977

Post by dreambear »

Hi!

To celebrate my 1000:th post on this forum, I have decided to make a poll an have some discussions about the songs released by RCA/BMG after the death of Elvis. I haven´t incuded any of the home recording, because I havent heard all of them. I may have missed couple of tracks, like gospel jams, Froggy.. and a few others, but I think the most important tracks are included.

I really like a few of them like "Fool, fool, fool", "I´m a roustabout", "Danny", It´s diff´rent now", "Tweedle dee" and "You´re the boss".

But for me it´s "A hundred years from now" that rules. Could almost have been included on his country album from 1971. Pure joy to listen.

What do you other guys think?

Kind regards

Björn

I love Plantation Rock. It has a cool guitar riff and some interesting vocals. It's a very untypical song melodically.

I voted for A hundred years from now. I love that song. But there are others on the list I enjoy almost as much as this one.

I wonder, is there any chance a new song will show up?

Is there a chance that "Satisfied" will turn up on the forthcoming Sun project?
Otherwise, it´s probably tracks like "OK, all right, you win" that might show up. But God only knows.

But some smartie here will soon mention "Feelings"...

Hi Bjørn, Tillykke med de 1000 post 8)

I voted for My Happiness ....not the very best, but I like it and it`s the most important one to me. The one I enjoy the most must be The Twelfth of never. Also I enjoy Danny very much... :wink:

My Happiness. Historic, haunting, beautiful....

Of course, the same thing could be said of Softly, As I Leave You.
