Saturday Song: Elvis Presley “Tiger Man”

August 16, 2008

There could be no other singer featured today as we remember Elvis Presley on August 16th, the day he died in his Memphis mansion, Graceland.  It has been said that America gave three things to the world, Coca-Cola, Mickey Mouse, and Elvis Presley.  And only of of them is human. 

The energy and style that Elvis brought to the stage was fantastically tuned to meet the expectations of the audience, and then he transcended that by another level or two.  Today we go back to the 1968 concert where Elvis was dressed in all black leather, and placed before a small NBC TV audience.  Soon after this show was broadcast Elvis went to Las Vegas, and the nation was soon to be his stage as he traveled extensively until his death in 1977.  From the 1968 TV show comes “Tiger Man”.
