  1. In 1956 Elvis had songs that have been underappreciated over the years: Playing for Keeps; I Was the One; So Glad Your Mine; and his saddest song How’s the World Treating You? The Dorsey Shows are so superior to his other TV appearances in ’56.

    • Don’t you love the haunting quality of the sad songs? Listen to the keening disappointment in his voice in “Lawdy, Miss Clawdy.” Another of my early Elvis favorites is “Is It So Strange” written by Faron Young.

  12. I have been an Elvis fan since I was 9 years old. Now I’m letting my two granddaughter know about Elvis, they love his music specially the silly songs Elvis sang on some of his movies. Yesterday my oldest granddaughter that is 8, says to me “grandma did you know that Elvis was very poor when he was young” I said to her, how do you know that, she reply that a classmate is reading an autobiography about Elvis and sharing with the class. I just love that story.
