I wish Elvis had lived long enough to record La Vida Loca...
but since he did not, I have to content myself with "Kingtinued", a CD of modern, largely A.E.D. (After Elvis' Death) tunes recorded in the style of the large one. Only the highest quality material was selected for the CD, to be sure.
The King Lives!
Elvis is back on top of the United Kingdom Singles chart with the remix of "A Little Less Conversation". This is Elvis' 17th UK #1 moving him past the Beatles for the most ever.
In other news, Disney's Lilo and Stitch
features an Elvis imitating alien.
All this is in advance of the 25th Anniversary of the King's Passing, which will be commemorated with an RCA album "ELV1S 30 #1 Hits"
, which is to include all #30 of Elvis' hits internationally.
