Contrary to popular opinion Elvis Presley never appeared on American Bandstand. However he did conduct an interview with Dick Clark in 1960 while serving in the US Army.

Being limited (self implemented) to choosing only (10) ten favorite Elvis Presley songs is subject to; moods, memories, and mentality.
In no specific order they are:
Portrait of my love
How the web was woven
You’re so square…baby I don’t care
Always on my mind
I was the one (rehearsal version circa 1970)
Earth angel (YES Elvis sang this song)
Peace in the valley
If everyday was like Christmas
By the way if you haven’t heard some of these songs please visit my YouTube page and…enjoy. The direct link is: https://www.youtube.com/user/JeffSchrembs
Disclaimer: I am a diehard Alanna Nash fan based upon (including but not limited to); her talents as an author, her consistently excellent works, her insightful revelations, her (truly) being “one of a kind”, her exceptional books about Elvis Presley (and others which I encourage everyone to obtain for they are, individually and collectively, treasures) , and her sharing her passions. I am blessed to count her as a dear friend and I cherish our relationship not only about Elvis but other aspects as well.
