Best Elvis Presley Songs

The Top Ten

1 Jailhouse Rock

I think this should definitely stay at number 1 because it's such a cool song. A very great dancing hit!

Great classic! This song made my fall in love with Elvis. Shame he can't make any other great songs like this one.

1of the best classic rocks ever...

The most defining song of all time. As great as it gets

2 Suspicious 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!

I love this song

4 Hound Dog

One of the best song of king elvis

Classical toptrack from elvis presley, with good guitar and drum sessions

I think this was his best or his biggest point in his mainstream career and guys please vote this song to number one. I hope one of you would like my comment I recently typed.

Love this song can sing it by heart

5 Heartbreak Hotel

Best elvis song is don't be cruel but this is second

Gordon Lightfoot, John Lennon, Keith Richards, Robert Plant, George Harrison, Elton John ��" they told that this song changed their lives.

I love this song
Owwjaaah

6 In the Ghetto

This one is a lovely song. Clearly reflects how criminals are born as helpless children. No one's a terrorist by birth. Hunger changes everything. Lovely way, lovely melody and the great voice of the King, Elvis.

Such a realistic story with such a good words and music.. Who can not be effected this song?

This song is my absolute favourite, I remember my father always used to sing me this every night. I think it should be in the top 5 at least.

Probably the most powerful song Elvis recorded. Speaks of the real issues of an inner-city environment where most people just turn a blind eye to.

7 All Shook Up

Even if I'll never have a fraction of the singing voice Elvis had, that won't stop me from always singing along to this amazingly giddy song which perfectly captures the feeling of being in love.

His voice is amazing no matter what he sings, but this is my favorite with the rest of his songs tying for second place.

His first number 1 hit in England and his best song ever! This song got me into Elvis when I was 14

Uh-huh. - Britgirl

One of the best songs I've ever heard from Elvis. Peru loves Elvis.

A great song that should at least have a spot in the top ten. Truly remarkable.

A great dance tune.

The Contenders

11 Love Me Tender

One of the best Elvis songs in the world such a beautiful ballad

I love that song

Should be No2. Especially eith the line
Do you casse in the mirror and eor

Love me tender should be number 1. Espcially with yhe line. DO YOU CASSE AT YOUR YOR BALD HEAD AND WISH you HAD HAIR VERSION.
Laugh out loud

12 If I Can Dream

This is one of the most powerful songs Elvis ever did. This should easily be top ten if not too five. Name another song (besides An American Trilogy) that Elvis did that was powerfully and so meaningful vocally.

I favor some of Elvis' other songs, but voted for it mainly because I want this song to be higher. What a phenomenal message that needs to be spread in today's generation!

This is a fabulous song, full of emotion by Elvis.

His best song ever! What passion in his voice and delivery. He is the King of R&R...

The wonder of you is the perfect wedding song

fantastic!

14 Don't Be Cruel

Love it. if I remember correctly, my mother had bought me hound dog. never paid attention to the other side. I was 6, didn't care. just played hound dog. then don't be cruel was being played on the radio. I asked her to buy me that. turns out, they were flip sides, and still have 2 45s of hound dog/don't be cruel

Love the beat! Best beat of all of Elviss songs.

Ahhh such a cute song <3 I smile whenever I hear this

La canción favorita de Elvis

15 Always on My Mind

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

It is very full of emotion and I can't stop listening to it

"Elvis sings hole heart-full and touching feeling of millions in the world"

The song every girl wants her man to sing to her after a fight.

With this, Elvis left his calling card to the world... And what a mighty card that was! - yianang
