Music, more than anything else, can take me back to a place in time. Good ones & bad ones. That's why I love Music Memory Monday hosted by Diane & Jori.
Elvis. Do NOT leave me a comment dissin' Elvis. Fat or skinny, the man had an amazing voice. I think it's just hearbreaking that people took advantage of him, used him up, to the point of ruination.
Did you know that the only international concerts Elvis ever played were 5 concerts in Canada in 1957? His "manager" Colonel Tom Parker was legally unable to leave the country, so Elvis didn't do any world tours.
Anyhow, this is a fun song that Chris & I found when we were on one of our infamous road trips in northern Michigan. It's just so happy & full of 70's silliness that it makes us smile. Chris knows that this is one of the songs that he can play for me, that will make me smile, no matter what.
How do you not smile at the line, "But we've yet to taste the icing on the cake that we've been baking with the past"? Pure 70's genius I say!
And really, the little teen girls can yell about the Jo Bros' all they want, but none of them is gonna look like this anytime soon!
The Next Step Is Love
BTW ladies, if you've never seen what all the fuss about Elvis is try watching his 68 comback special. The black leather is killer!
