Re: Mystery songs on ASCAP site

Google translate says - 'Goodbye Paris (Star Wars)' . Something for the next film in that franchise? Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens on Dec. 17th 2017 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Wars:_The_Last_Jedi No way - they never have songs in the Star Wars films. How cool would it be, though! Bond film...

Re: What will bring 2017?

I think all we can bank on now is that song from the Annette Bening film. It's released on 17 November, and if Mary McCartney has done the video, I presume there's some desire to push the song - and that means Radio 2.

Re: New Elvis song in "Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool"

Yes, the new song is called 'You Shouldn't Look At Me That Way'. Shades of 'You Little Fool'? ("Don't look at me that way - you know it isn't right")

Re: New Elvis song in "Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool"

V excited to hear these. His people need to seriously target Radio 2 to make the 'A side' a hit. Elaine Paige on Sunday often plays songs from films, and we know Jeremy Vine is a big Elvis fan.

Officially intrigued - new material at last! Plus, would be great to get an Oscar nomination for best song for our Elvis!

Re: London meet up - Saturday 22nd July

Yeah, great turnout - thanks for organising, Verbal - had a great time. Great to meet everyone of course, but it was a bit of a coup to get Mark S., the Elvis website pioneer! To next time!

Well, I don't have a record player, but happy for Elvis to make a little cash any way he can. Good luck with the project!

Re: EC at New York's Electric Lady Studios, May 2017

Hmmm... Either Elvis has written songs with Paul Simon or he's contributing a track to a Graduate tribute soundtrack covers album. The Graduate film shares a 50th birthday with Sgt Pepper this year. Whaddaya reckon?!

Best ever acoustic version of Shipbuilding?

(You have to listen to Elv playing Rockinghorse Road before you get to it - but it's hardly an ordeal as that too is ASTOUNDING!)

Oh my God, I've jumped the gun again. Last week it was a new Macca album, this week a new Steve Mandel! Aw well, one song - presumably a big ballad - is better than none.

Re: Brian Griffin fundraising for photo book - includes Armed Forces photos

Such a great album sleeve - and I think they went with the best option in the end.

Must've been a nightmare keeping the silk backdrop clean - though I guess they had a version of photoshop back then. Or it could've been a wipe-clean laminated photo of silk that he was sticking his head through...

I'm sorry to hear about your friend, John - did he have to go to A&E to get them removed? How did it happen? Did he accidentally miss the vase?
