iLove Tuesday Tunes; Young and Beautiful

This week's featured song is Young and Beautiful by Elvis Presley. Growing up, my dad listened to a lot of Elvis. I also happen to live in the city where Elvis lived most of his life. To say this is an Elvis town would be a huge understatement. I love Elvis. I've seen all of his movies. Every year during the weeks of his birth and death, there are Elvis movie marathons. I would go to sleep early only to have my dad sneak me out of bed a couple of hours later. We'd stay up all night watching Elvis movies. Sadly, I've been estranged from my father since the age of six. Regardless of all that's happened, I have some wonderful memories of him.

My favorite Elvis movie is Jailhouse Rock. I still get chills every time I see the part in the movie where he starts to sing this song.

Oooh! My favorite is Jailhouse Rock, too!

I don't really have a favorite Elvis song, though. Too many good ones. I remember we used to have this old recording from a concert where he was singing...I think it was "Are You Lonesome Tonight" and he misses some words and starts cracking up. Hilarious!

I have fond memories of my dad when I hear Elvis too. Jelly donuts and banana and peanut butter sandwiches.

You do realize that this song is a euphemism for guy-on-guy prison sex, right? Seriously, read the lyrics.
