Welcome

Today in history

October 25, 1956

While the band travelled north in Gladys' Cadillac and lost a wheel bearing in Pennsylvania, Elvis flew back to New York City with Gene Smith, Nick Adams and some others.

Song of the day

Barefoot Ballad

I love Elvis. I like his movies and ones like "G.I. Blues", "Girl Happy" and "It Happened At The World's Fair" are my among my favorite movies period, not just Elvis movies. They are fun, entertaining and even the situational songs are good in the movie, if not great on the record. That said, "Barefoot Ballad" is the biggest piece of garbage that Elvis ever recorded. He sings it in a hokey country accent (his hillbilly character, Jodie, sang it in the movie) and the words are worse than insipid. The scene in the movie is bad and this song is unlistenable on record. This movie was made to be in a theater for about two months, be seen on TV a couple of times years later and forgotten. Thanks to VHS and now DVD, it is still being seen. Why the song was on the album and the flipside to "Kissin Cousins", "It Hurts Me' wasn't is anybody's guess. "Sound Advice" (10X times the song this one is) wasn't on the "Follow That Dream" EP, "Cane And A High Starched Collar" (5x times the song) was in a movie and not released for 16 years. Less than one star!
