The 7 Biggest Songs Elvis Gave Us

Elvis Presley, to many the greatest rock n roll star ever.  That's one that is hard to debate for most would be right.  We are about to count down The 7 Biggest Songs Elvis Gave Us.  Rock N Roll music to many was defined and made big by Elvis.  Think about this.  Elvis went on tv to sing and they wouldn't show him from the hips down because of the movements.  He sent Parents into a tizzy back in the day. A Life Cut Short Elvis died on August 16, 1977 at 42 years old.  Elvis Known as the "King of Rock and Roll",  is regarded as one of the most significant cultural figures of the 20th century.  He even gave all his fame up to go into the military and serve our country.  The music of Elvis lives today as much if not more than when Elvis was alive.  You still hear his music on TV commercials, in movies, and in advertisements.  His home Graceland is open in Memphis year round and Graceland welcomes over 500,000 visitors each year, is one of the five most visited home tours in the United States, and is the most famous home in America after The White House. In 1991, Graceland was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
