The Top Ten

Jailhouse Rock
I think this should definitely stay at number 1 because it's such a cool song. A very great dancing hit!
1of the best classic rocks ever...
Great classic! This song made my fall in love with Elvis. Shame he can't make any other great songs like this one.

3Suspicious Minds
Amazing! Just had to vote for this one because I cannot choose between "Jailhouse Rock" or "All Shook Up" and I love this song as well. Classic one that everyone seems to know
Just a great song. That extra fade in and out at the of the song is just brilliant. Just when you think your joy ride is over, he hits the gas one final time. By far the best song he performed live.
The best but where is can't help falling in love with you!

Elvis sings this with emotion in his voice, I believe he was singing this to Priscilla,

58Milkcow Blues Boogie
It moves from lurking, lingering expectation to outbursting, thumping, feverish duende. In one song Elvis gives the taste, the bridge he is from dormant fifties to arising lust for total life, from lullabytime to awakening rhythm glory, infectuous blaze for body and pelvis to join.

The most personal and emotional song by the king
