Elvis Presley: The King of Rock 'n' Roll

Posted at August 17th, 2015 | by Prakhar Narang | in

Born on January 8, 1935 in a small town of Tupelo in Mississippi, Elvis Aaron Presley grew up to be THE KING of rock and roll. Yesterday marked the 38th death anniversary of this legendary artist and one of the greatest entertainer ever lived. Considered as the most culturally significant artists of all time, Elvis was influenced by gospel music, country and the blues did much to establish early rock and roll music.

 

Elvis sold almost a billion records worldwide and entered billboard hot 100 chart a whopping 172 times. None of the artists in the world has even touched 100 times, well he was “the king” after all. At the peak of his fame he reported to Germany to serve the army for 2 years. In these 2 years many artists surpassed him including the Beatles who were actually inspired by ‘the king”. But the king was back to his throne as he topped the charts again in 1969. He made his comeback in a CBS TV event 1968 “the comeback special” which led to the first ever global concert at Hawaii which was broadcasted via satellite. The concert was viewed by 1.5 billion people worldwide.

 

Here are the most popular and wonderful songs of Elvis Presley go shake it but don’t break it.

 

⦁ Heartbreak hotel

 


⦁ (I can’t help) falling in love with you

 

 

⦁ Love me tender

 


⦁ That’s alright (mama)

 


⦁ Blue suede shoes

 

 

He died with the crown of rock ‘n’ roll at the age of 42, every dream he ever dreamt came true a hundred times. The kind of craziness his fans had cannot be seen today. Girls would fight for the handkerchief he would use to wipe off the sweat from his face, boys would copy his hairstyle and try to copy the evocative moves. He was the Godfather of rock ‘n’ roll as he established it and made it what it is now.
