Elvis Presley: Return To Sender
Elvis Presley changed the face of pop music.
He was the first mega pop star, and had the talent to deserve his success.
His early fans are now facing their mortality.
Here are five great Presley songs to choose for the farewell event.
Return To Sender
Not necessarily a classic, but the humour in the title appeals. If you want them to have a chuckle, put this on your list.
A moving song about the nature of loneliness, and appropriate to indicate the isolation felt when a loved one passes. A great example of how Elvis could give his unique emotion to a slow song.
Always On My Mind
Extremely touching song for a farewell. Just because someone doesn’t show the outward signs of deep emotion, it doesn’t mean they love that special mind. And it’s only when it’s too late do you realise. Pass the tissues.
If I Can Dream
For those who want to go to a better world, redeem their soul and fly to a better place. Moving and powerful song which Presley makes his own.
A gorgeous love song which recalls the most tender loving memories.
