21It Hurts Me

Highly underrated especially his performance of it in the 1968 comeback special

22You'll Never Walk Alone

Perfect religious and uplifting song for any point in one's life.

23You Gave Me a Mountain

Elvis recorded the best version of this song!

24It's Over

I first heard him sing this over 35 yrs ago and it still pops in my head quite often

25Young and Beautiful

Especially important in his film Jailhouse Rock, since his co-star Judy Tyler was in a fatal car crash with her husband right after the movie was finished. The last song in the movie was this one. Elvis refused to watch the movie after her death.

One of the best songs of presley's career

26Stranger In the Crowd

This lesser known Elvis song grabbed me the first time I ever heard it.

27Early Morning Rain

Love the tempo of this song. It just keeps movin with such a natural transition into the verses. Love it.

28It's Easy for You

The other woman. This man knows that even though he has given up his family for her and has already been dumped by her for another man, that he'll take her back whenever she gives the word. Every word and note of this song blends with Elvis voice so perfectly that I can feel the resignation and deep sadness his love for her has cost him.

Beautiful song, one of my new favourites, his voice is very strong here

29Edge of Reality

An unusual type of song for Elvis. His voice is top notch on this track and I wish more people could hear it. From the movie "Live a Little, Love a Little".

30Got a Lot o' Livin' to Do
31Return to Sender

Over the years I've found that a lot of people know and love this song. About 20 yrs ago I went to a party with a very diverse crowd. There was a karaoke machine and no one wanted to sing. I cranked it up and started singing Return To Sender and that was all it took to get the party started.

32Kentucky Rain

I live in KY and find it being played on the radio when it rains. The back-up singers add just enough to Elvis vocals to make this one of my favorites. Several years after Elvis, Ronnie Milsap had a similar dilemma in Smokey Mountain Rain trying to find his girl. That's also a great song.

33In the Ghetto
34You'll Think of Me

B-Side to Suspicious Minds.

35Love Letters
36Tender Feeling

From his movie " Kissin' cousins". Not very well known ballad of Elvis, but one of my favorites.

37Bossa Nova BabyV1 Comment
38Wear My Ring Around Your Neck
39When My Blue Moon Turns to Gold Again

This Song is great and has some kind of nostalgic feeling that I can't describe. Such a shame this song gets overlooked often.
