i agree with blue chair. i think the extras shoulda been placed at the end of this album. maybe with a python-like interlude telling you the album is now over. north is way too short, actually. i find that just as i start getting into it is over. i do not think shite should be put in for the sake of...

punch the clock is definitely the most underrated elvis album. trust second most and juliet letters third. if it wasn't for 'everyday' it would be a spectacular album. let them all talk is a fanatstic number, mainly due to the horns. charm school, boxing day and element within her are some of the sn...

whatever happened to oswald mosely

always wanted to know who oswald mosely (sp?) was and the siginificance of 'him' on less than zero.
for years i assumed the oswald was lee harvey only to be corrected.
tho i like the dallas version where the oswald is lee harvey

used to tune it out when i first got king of america.
now i enjoy it. the slow pacing, the depth of the lyrics.
does the fireworks represent bliss or conflict? it changes for me.
this is a song elvis was meant to sing.
