Music Monday - Elvis Covers The Beatles

Elvis Week came and went without a peep from me. What is happening to my life?


Oh, now I remember. Elvis Week began two days before the Olympics ended. I was busy that weekend watching diving, track and the closing ceremony. And I was tired. I stayed up till 1:00 am for two weeks straight and this TV addict was a little TV’d out. But don’t you fret, I recorded everything and now my TiVo is full of Elvis movies, concerts, interviews and specials. I was finally able to watch some of it this weekend. You know what I love about Elvis (besides everything)? He covered Beatles songs! Take a listen.

Hey Jude



Something


Yesterday



Lady Madonna



Was your mind just blown? Mine was! I love them both so much and while there are tons of rumors out there about how much they hated each other, they must have been fans of the music, right? I'd have to say that I love The Beatles music more, but Elvis definitely wins in the looks department.


He's so dreamy.

They didn't hate each other! When I was in Liverpool I went to the Beatles museum thing and they also had a part called "Elvis and US". The Beatles were HUGE Elvis fans and they all met up at one point, but nothing was recorded there, because they wanted it to be their thing, not a publicity stunt! I love how much respect they had for each other!

I respect that The Beatles are extremely talented musicians and songwriters, but Elvis wins with me every time.

And yes, he's so dreamy!
