Elvis Spirit of the King
Elvis was a talented rock 'n roller and the King of Rock and Roll. He is one of the greatest singers ever and has set an example for every aspiring artist. Elvis passed away on August 16th, 1977, from drug abuse at 33.
The first thing you wonder about Elvis is what his lyrics mean because his lyrics are full of metaphors and have complex meanings that can only be understood by those who truly understand what he's singing about.
Elvis was a very deep man. He had a lot of pain and was scared to show it outwardly because he knew it would hurt the ones he loved most. Every song that Elvis recorded from 1955 to 1973 was about something that happened to him or someone he knew. The man himself would often sing a song and then change it when it came time to record in case the original version wasn't suitable for the album they were recording that particular year.
For example, in 1956, Elvis recorded "Heartbreak Hotel," but on some of his recordings later that year, he changed the lyrics to "I'd rather be lonely."
Although this may seem trivial, it shows the true nature of Elvis' mindset. It tells us that he was always changing and updating his songs to fit whatever was happening in his life. "I got a lot of pain; I got a lot of hurt and misery." These are the lyrics from a song he wrote but never released. He gave it out to one of his best friends, Jerry Reed (best known for "Guitar Man" and the theme to "The Beverly Hillbillies"), and he recorded it. It might have been the only song Elvis wrote that never made it to an official release. You need to know what these lyrics mean to understand them for sure.
