Elvis - 30th Anniversary!

Extraordinary! To still be as popular now as when he was alive! There is only and will only ever be ONE Elvis!

It's 30 years since he passed away but he keep's rocking on! Now that is truly amazing! A unique talent with an exceptional voice!

My favourite Elvis song: If I Can Dream (a fantastic performance and powerful voice peformed during the '68 Comeback Special!)

My favourite Elvis performance: '68 Comeback Special (makes the hairs stand up on the back of my neck!)

Elvis may have left the building but he still rocks it!!

If I Can Dream
(Brown)
There must be lights burning brighter somewhere
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue
If I can dream of a better land
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
Tell me why, oh why, oh why can't my dream come true
There must be peace and understanding sometime
Strong winds of promise that will blow away
All the doubt and fear
If I can dream of a warmer sun
Where hope keeps shining on everyone
Tell me why, oh why, oh why won't that sun appear
We're lost in a cloud
With too much rain
We're trapped in a world
That's troubled with pain
But as long as a man
Has the strength to dream
He can redeem his soul and fly
Deep in my heart there's a trembling question
Still I am sure that the answer gonna come somehow
Out there in the dark, there's a beckoning candle
And while I can think, while I can talk
While I can stand, while I can walk
While I can dream, please let my dream
Come true, right now
Let it come true right now
Oh yeah
