"You're no Jesus...

...Yeah, you're no fucking Elvis" Incubus- Megalomanic, 2004.

Today is The King's birthday. If he was alive (or is he?) Elvis would be 73. I was 4 when he died so this is not the place to look for Elvis knowledge. I have none. But in honer of his birthday, let's quote some songs with "Elvis" in the lyrics.

"Elvis was a hero to most, But he never meant shit to me you see, Straight up racist that sucker was simple and plain, Mother fuck him and John Wayne" Public Enemy- Fight The Power, 1989

"Cause Junior's still living in the blackboard jungle with his Elvis Presley hair" Leon Russell- Shoot Out On The Plantation, 1970

" And Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand, I always kinda sorta wished I looked like Elvis" The Gaslight Anthem- High Lonesome, 2008

"I don't believe that Elvis is dead" Bush- Everything Zen, 1994

If you can think of any more, please leave them in the comments section.

How about Walking In Memphis from Marc Cohn? Saw the ghost of Elvis on Union Avenue
Followed him up to the gates of Graceland, then I watched him walk right through.

One of my favorite song!
