We all know the classic Elvis Presley songs: Hound Dog, Love Me Tender, Jailhouse Rock, etc, and those will top a lot of “favorite” lists out there, but I wanted to put together a list of my favorite lesser-known Elvis songs. For all the die-hard Elvis fans out there, don’t beat me up! I know these are still well-known songs, but as I’ve become more of a fan over the years, the list below has jumped out because I hadn’t heard them much before. Take a look and chime in below with a comment about what your favorites are. Thank ya, thank ya very much!
Favorites of Elvis Presley’s music, besides the ones you already know…
Love Me – a beautiful appeal for someone you love, to love you back
Love Letters (with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra) – singing about letters received from a loved one, holding dear the words that were written. His voice on this one is incredible!
Crying in the Chapel – a song about faith, and finding comfort in the Lord, and in church
I Want To Be Free – earnestly yearning for faith in God to set us free, like a bird
Are You Lonesome Tonight (laughing) – I love how human this makes Elvis, and I can’t help but laugh along
Steamroller Blues – I once used this song as my adult league softball “walk up” song… it might just pump you up, too
I’ll Hold You In My Heart (Till I Can Hold You In My Arms) – this is a sweet love song about being apart but wishing to be with the one you love
How the Web Was Woven – I loved the melody of this one
Without Love (There is Nothing) – Love is all we need, basically
Tiger Man – this is a fast one that gets my adrenaline going. It’s just a fun song.
Clean Up Your Own Backyard – Mind your own business is the message in this one… and but out of other folks’ stuff… it can still apply to society today, for sure.
Thanks for stopping by!
