Friday Five – Covering The King

Since yesterday, January 8, would have been Elvis Presley’s 74th birthday, I thought it might be fun to do Elvis songs covered by other artists this morning. I tried hard to make sure these were actually Elvis songs and not songs that Elvis covered, because he covered A LOT of songs! Even many songs that most people consider Elvis songs were actually covers. Oh well. At least I got to listen to a boat-load of great music while trying to compile the list! I can’t complain.
