How about a version of "London Calling" or "Tommy Gun" (or any other Clash song for that matter)? Maybe too obvious, or maybe not--what do you think?

Elvis sang "London Calling," along with Bruce Springsteen, Dave Grohl, and Steven Van Zandt, at the Grammy Awards in 2002.

I knew that, but I just thought that hearing him do his interpretation of that song on his own might be nice to hear. I really enjoyed the Grammy performance also.

Yeah, but it would have been cooler with just Elvis on vocals, 'much as I like Brucie :lol:

John Hiatt's Lipstick Sunset.

Would definitely have to be backed by the Imposters on this one, though.

bambooneedle chose springsteen´s candy´s room.....interesting choice but i think a song like for you (from the first album)is perfect for elvis.....i´d love to see him cover that one...
...the promise of indulgence in my confidential voice approached inmortal danger but you´ll never know how close....

I would like to hear EC sing Twist of Fate by Bob Dylan from Blood on the
Tracks... one of Bob's greatest.. curious what EC could do with it.
