Memphis, Tennessee was the kingdom of the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley. The King’s presence can be felt everywhere here, from Graceland to the downtown city streets. Nowhere is his spirit more alive than in his music. Here are some of Elvis’ signature songs you need on your MP3 player.
One of the King’s first big hits, “Heartbreak Hotel” is an ode to lonely and heartbroken souls in the world who are feeling the blues.
From the hotel to the penitentiary, “Jailhouse Rock” is a signature Elvis number. It’s so good, it’s almost criminal!
“A Little Less Conversation”
This fast-paced single is a lot more rock than roll, but its infectious energy has made it a hit.
A very personal song for the King, “Suspicious Minds” helped Elvis gain back commercial and critical success later in his career, and is considered by many to be his signature song.
Temperatures rise whenever this song comes on. One of Elvis’ late and great hits, “Burning Love” is still red hot today!
