In Nomine Revisited: The King.

Today is Elvis’s birthday. I’ve written more than one Elvis-themed thing for In Nomine, over the years.  So, well.

Sorry about that.

‘Are You Lonesome Tonight?’

…Seriously, what was with the verbal monologues in the middle of these kinds of songs?

“Viva Las Vegas.”

Viva Las VegasElvis Presley

Personally, I wouldn’t go to Vegas on a, ha!, bet.  I fear that it would be too much like Atlantic City for my liking: not in terms of amenities, but in terms of how people treat each other.

Still: Godzilla.

“Blue Suede Shoes.”

Blue Suede Shoes, Elvis Presley

I once made the mistake of laughing about this song in front of my dad.  Turns out that he had had a pair of blue suede shoes, back in the Fifties, and some [expletive deleted] went and deliberately stepped on them – which apparently wrecked the shoes, and that’s when the fight started.

…I mean, my dad felt obligated to take a swing at the guy who wrecked his shoes.  Not at me. I didn’t have anything to do with his shoes being wrecked.

…No, the guy who my dad took a swing at didn’t get his shoes wrecked…

Look, just don’t step on the freaking shoes, OK? OK.

Blame @aceofspadeshq.

…and I hate to point this out, but Elvis is totally lying like a rug in this song.
