Elvis -- 30 #1 Hits

Photobucket
8/10

Nothing much here, just a bunch of timeless songs that will reverberate across history until humans evolve beyond hearing or die off in apocalyptic ice or fire. Even then, ancient radio waves will be reaching new beings that can hear, and they are sure to remember what passes across their hearing vestibules. Even if you can't stand Elvis' voice, or you just hate old music in general, half of these songs are in your head the second you look at the track titles, even if you have never even willingly listened to them. While every song is not a hit for the ages ("Teddy Bear" immediately comes to mind), there is enough here for an hour long nostalgia party. The King is dead. Long live the King. Or whatever.
