Mish & Tori | MUSIC TO OUR EARS - Elvis

We both love Elvis. It makes us sad we never could experience him live; we just have to listen feverishly to what our parents tell us about him. There are numerous explanations floating about for why Elvis laughed during this rendition of are you lonesome tonight. Mish's favourite is that a bald man in the audience was trying to impress his girlfriend when his toupee fell off. Cue that heavenly laughter from the King. Another story, most likely to be true, is that while Elvis and his band were on the road, they would create amusing alternative lyrics. Looks like Elvis forgot himself and we now have this beauty of a recording.
