    I was born in 1961 and wouldn't have ever thought to listen to Elvis. But as I search for classic songs to listen to on MP3 players I have enjoyed going back in time and listening to Pink Floyd and Bob Dylan.

    I alway thought Elvis was an old buffoon from the media portrayals in the seventies, but recent listening to Suspicious Minds and Kentucky Rain have got me thinking the man had talent.

    What 10 Elvis songs are the best?

    I'm not a big fan of Elvis, I prefer Carl Perkins or Johnny Cash. I can stomach him more than I can the Beatles, though. I hate those guys.

    Great song. Enjoyed the youtube. The earlier than 1970's Elvis had some talent to say the least. I would have never known.

    If you like Dylan have you ever heard this version of one of his hits?

    It Ain't Me Babe

    And 1973 Elvis singing another of Dylan's

    No doubt about it Elvis was a great talent. A great showman with a good voice...how could he miss.
