New Graceland Blog - Covered by Elvis Presley

There’s an art to covering someone else’s song.


Whether you stick to the original or create an entirely new arrangement, it’s up to you to put your own stamp on it.


Elvis Presley could take any song and make it his own.


Elvis’ catalog included songs written especially for him and a collection of cover songs, and no matter what he sang, he always put that special ‘Elvis’ touch on each and every song. He loved all genres of music and sang songs he loved, songs that meant something to him. If Elvis covered your song, it was like the ultimate compliment. It meant he was a fan of your work.


Elvis covered many terrific songs, but for this week’s Graceland Blog, we’ll take a look at just a few fan-favorite covers and covers that meant a lot to Elvis.
