PATRICIA CARLI
L'une de ses plus belles chansons

La Vie N'est Pas Facile Sad

<tr><td class=nounder> Paroles
Dis ! Qu'est-ce que tu fais ce soir ?
Rien, pourquoi ?
Est-ce que je peux venir te voir ?
Oui, bien sûr.
Moi, j'ai plutôt les idées noires.
Toi…
On irait dîner quelque part.
Mais… lui ?

Lui ! Il a beaucoup changé,
La lune de miel est passée.
Je peux à peine lui parler.
Je crois vraiment que je me suis trompée.

La vie n'est pas facile,
La vie n'est pas docile.
Souvent l'amour s'achève
À peine commencé !
La vie n'est pas facile,
La vie n'est pas docile.
On fait de jolis rêves
Qui finissent en chiffon de papier.

Dis, toi, qu'est-ce que tu deviens ?
Toujours pareil.
J'espère que tu as quelqu'un.
Hum… pas vraiment.
Tu mérites une fille bien.
Tu es gentille.
Nous deux, ça doit te sembler loin.
Je n't'ai jamais oubliée, tu sais…

Non ! Ne va surtout pas croire
Que je te donne un peu d'espoir.
Je ne veux pas te décevoir.
Je me sentais un peu trop seule ce soir…

La vie n'est pas facile,
La vie n'est pas docile.
Souvent l'amour s'achève
À peine commencé !
Hin !
La vie n'est pas facile,
Écoute-moi…
La vie n'est pas docile.
On peut s'voir en amis !
On fait de jolis rêves
Viens, je t'attends !
Qui finissent en chiffon de papier.
Viens, je t'attends…

Non !
La vie n'est pas facile,
La vie n'est pas docile.
On fait de jolis rêves
Viens, viens ! je t'attends…
Qui finissent en chiffon de papier.
Je t'aime encore…


LA VIE N'EST PAS FACILE
A La Vie Est Belle Non ?
Que de doutes d'incertitudes
que d'angoisses
apprendre à grandir
ce n'est pas si facile
la vie est là
insolente parfois violente
c'est une roue
qui tourne, toune
avec ses joies, ses peines
l'amour, l'amitié
et au milieu tu es là
un petit point si petit
pourtant tu peux être grand
il suffit de décider
d'avancer sans se rabaisser
relever la tête
et se battre
rester optimiste
prendre des risques
profiter des bons moments
croquer la vie à pleine dent
rire, rire à s'en étouffer
vivre d'abord pour soi
avoir un petit soupçon d'égoisme
afin de s'accorder beaucoup de plaisir
aimer son corps
se faire mourir de plaisir
dans un corps à corps endiablé
oui je veux vivre intensément

a femme de mon ami
by Enrico Macias

Je sais pourquoi tu as pleuré
Et tristement m'a regardé
Je peux te prendre dans mes bras
Pour embrasser tes yeux rougis
Mais moi je n'en ai pas le droit
Tu es la femme de mon ami

Je sais pourquoi tu veux partir
A moi tu ne peux pas mentir
Je peux te prendre dans mes bras
Et t'arracher à cette vie
Mais ça je n'en ai pas le droit
Tu es la femme de mon ami

Je sens mon cœur tout déchiré
Entre l'amour et l'amitié
Que je ne peux départager
Je sais pourquoi tu as quitté
Celui qui n'a pas su t'aimer
Et moi je t'ai laissé partir
A la recherche de ta vie
En moi je n'ai qu'un souvenir
Tu es la femme de mon amie

Je sais pourquoi tu veux chanter
Et pourquoi tu m'as regardé
Je peux te prendre dans mes bras
Car aujourd'hui j'en ai le droit
Tu es pour moi depuis toujours
Le vrai visage de l'amour
Pourtant jamais nous ne vivrons
Au cœur de la même chanson
Au cœur de la même maison
Je voudrais que tu ai compris
Que si je t'aime tu es aussi
Pour moi la femme de mon ami, de mon ami

Adieu, mon pays


by Enrico Macias

J'ai quitté mon pays
J'ai quitté ma maison
Ma vie ma triste vie
Se traîne sans raison

J'ai quitté mon soleil
J'ai quitté ma mer bleue
Leurs souvenirs se réveillent
Bien après mon adieu

Soleil ! soleil de mon pays perdu
Des villes blanches que j'aimais
Des filles que j'ai jadis connues

J'ai quitté une amie
Je vois encore ses yeux
Ses yeux mouillés de pluie
De la pluie de l'adieu

Je revois son sourire
Si près de mon visage
Il faisait resplendir
Les soirs de mon village

Mais, du bord du bateau
Qui m'éloignait du quai
Une chaîne dans l'eau
A claqué comme un fouet

J'ai longtemps regardé
Ses yeux bleus qui fuyaient aient aient
La mer les a noyés dans le flot
Du regret et et et et

Oh guitare, guitare


by Enrico Macias

Oh guitare, guitare,
Ma guitare, ouvre-moi bien ton cœur
Chante, chante guitare
Sous mes doigts mais chante le bonheur
Si j'ai mis dans ton coeur andalou
Trop de soupirs à ton goût
Chasse au loin les sanglots superflus
Qu'on n'en parle jamais plus

Dis-moi des choses folles
Au-delà des paroles
Que ma bouche doit taire
N'ayant que des mots de chair

Ma guitare bavarde
Un oiseau s'est caché dans ta voix
Et la porte qu'il garde
Pour nous deux s'entrouvre quelquefois
Là, vois-tu, c'est le jardin secret
Où plus rien ne meurt jamais
Là, les soirs ont tous des lendemains
A la portée de ma main

Quels pays magnifiques
Sont là dans ta musique !
Moi-même, je demeure
Ébloui par leurs couleurs

Oh guitare magique
Quand tu fais vibrer tous tes accords
Un monde fantastique
Fait revivre ton cœur de bois mort

El Porompompero


by Enrico Macias

Mon cœur enfermé dans ta cage
Mon cœur tu sembles gai
Pourquoi brusquement ce langage
Qu'as-tu donc à me raconter
Dis-moi, dis-moi quel secret te fait battre de joie
Dis-moi, s'il te plaît qui tu aim's réponds-moi
Comment fais-tu réponds-moi
Porompompon ! Porom poron, pero, pero, pero, pero !
Porom poron, pero, pero, pero, pero,
Porom, pero, pero pon.

Je sais moi aussi qu'ell' est belle
Mais toi tu me parles d'amour
Si toi tu ne bats que pour elle
Moi j'ai peur de souffrir un jour
Dis-moi, dis-moi quelles sont les raisons de ton choix
Comment es-tu sûr qu'elle m'aime déjà
Comment sais-tu réponds-moi !
Porompompon ! Porom poron, pero, pero, pero, pero !
Porom poron, pero, pero, pero, pero,
Porom, pero, pero pon.

Mon cœur j'ai reçu ton message
Et comprends que dans ta voix
Tu veux que je partes en voyage
Avec un amour à mon bras
Dis-moi, dis-moi que son cœur en accord avec toi
Est comme un écho qui répond à ta voix
Mon cœur redoublons de joie
Porompompon ! Porom poron, pero, pero, pero, pero !
Porom poron, pero, pero, pero, pero,
Porom, pero, pero pon.

Enrico Macias BIOGRAPHIE

Enrico Macias
O n ne présente plus Gaston Ghrenassia qui, né en 1938 à Constantine de père andalou et de mère provençale, a pris beaucoup plus tard le nom d'Enrico Macias. Mais il n'est peut-être pas inutile de rappeler quelques moments de la carrière de cette vedette populaire qui est aussi un militant pour la paix et pour le dialogue entre les peuples. Le chanteur de " Enfants de tous pays " est invité en Egypte en 1978 par le Président Anouar al Sadate et il chante aux pieds des Pyramides devant 20000 spectateurs. Deux ans plus tard, Kurt Waldheim, secrétaire général de l'ONU lui décerne le titre de " Chanteur de la Paix ". Il fait don à l'UNICEF, cette même année 1980, de tous les droits d'auteur de sa chanson " Malheur à celui qui blesse un enfant ". En 1981 " Un berger vient de tomber " chanson écrite, au lendemain de sa mort, en hommage au Président Sadate, devient un énorme succès et est récompensée par deux disques d'Or. Après avoir reçu en 1995 de l'Institut Weismann de Sciences sa plus haute distinction " L'Arbre de vie de Cristal ", Enrico Macias est nommé en 1997 par Koffi Annan, secrétaire général des Nations Unies : " Ambassadeur itinérant auprès de l'O.N.U. plus spécialement chargé de missions de paix, de Fraternité et d'aides aux enfants de tous pays ".
L'ambassadeur de paix réalise, enfin, en 1999 le rêve de sa vie : un concert exceptionnel en l'honneur de son beau-père Raymond Leyris, maitre de la musique Arabo-Andalouse-Maalouf-Fondouk-Constantinoise, assassiné en Algérie en 1961.
A Fès, Enrico Macias offrira au public ce répertoire arabo-andalou du grand Cheikh Raymond, mais aussi ces chansons devenues internationalement populaires et qui sont un vibrant plaidoyer de paix et d'amour.

Lotfi Bouchnak
Chanteur, luthiste et compositeur né à Tunis d'une famille vraisemblablement d'origine turque de Bosnie (comme l'étymologie de son nom l'indique). Lotfi Bouchnak est un artiste inspiré, au charisme puissant qui embrase les foules arabes lors de ses récitals, tant par la puissance de sa voix, l'étendue de ses tessitures et ses qualités expressives exceptionnelles.
Artiste entier, passionné, il se consacre principalement à l'exécution du répertoire classique arabe de tradition savante. Interprète audacieux du malouf tunisien, joueur de Oud inspiré, il renoue avec la pratique de son homonyme, le grand maitre d'Alep Mustafa al Bushnak (1770 – 1856) et les traditions de l'Age d'Or, où les chanteurs voyageaient à travers l'Empire Musulman et chantaient dans les cours des princes d'Orient et d'Occident, se nourrissant d'un art cosmopolite. Ce cosmopolitisme syncrétique, nourri de l'influence des grands musiciens égyptiens, syriens, irakiens, tunisiens et turcs, tels que Tawfiq Quwiwi (qui fut son maàtre), Salih al Mahdi, Sayyid Darwish, Salih Abd al Hayy, Sabah Fakrih, colore de façon éclatante son style où les inflexions proches-orientales se teintent de nuances arabo-andalouses.
Lotfi Bouchnak a ainsi su conquérir ces dernières années le public mélomane de Damas, Bagdad, Le Caire, Alger ou Amman.
Au début des années 1990 une collaboration ponctuelle avec l'Ensemble Al Kindi a contribué à le faire connaàtre du public occidental européen. Artiste habité d'une foi profonde, il vient d'enregistrer un CD consacré à la " mise en chant " et en musique des 99 Noms d'Allah. Accompagné d'une troupe de 12 percussionnistes traditionnels, il consacrera son concert de Fès au répertoire sacré des chants Soufis

L'important, c'est la rose


by Gilbert Bécaud

Toi qui marches dans le vent
Seul dans la trop grande ville
Avec le cafard tranquille du passant
Toi qu'elle a laissé tomber
Pour courir vers d'autres lunes
Pour courir d'autres fortunes
L'important...

L'important c'est la rose
L'important c'est la rose
L'important c'est la rose
Crois-moi

Toi qui cherches quelque argent
Pour te boucler la semaine
Dans la ville tu promènes ton ballant
Cascadeur, soleil couchant
Tu passes devant les banques
Si tu n'es que saltimbanque
L'important...

L'important c'est la rose
L'important c'est la rose
L'important c'est la rose
Crois-moi

Toi, petit, que tes parents
Ont laissé seul sur la terre
Petit oiseau sans lumière, sans printemps
Dans ta veste de drap blanc
Il fait froid comme en Bohème
T'as le cœur comme en carême
Et pourtant...

L'important c'est la rose
L'important c'est la rose
L'important c'est la rose
Crois-moi

Toi pour qui, donnant-donnant
J'ai chanté ces quelques lignes
Comme pour te faire un signe en passant
Dis à ton tour maintenant
Que la vie n'a d'importance
Que par une fleur qui danse
Sur le temps...

L'important c'est la rose
L'important c'est la rose
L'important c'est la rose
Crois-moi

Et maintenant


by Gilbert Bécaud

Et maintenant que vais-je faire
De tout ce temps que sera ma vie
De tous ces gens qui m'indiffèrent
Maintenant que tu es partie

Toutes ces nuits, pourquoi pour qui
Et ce matin qui revient pour rien
Ce cœur qui bat, pour qui, pourquoi
Qui bat trop fort, trop fort

Et maintenant que vais-je faire
Vers quel néant glissera ma vie
Tu m'as laissé la terre entière
Mais la terre sans toi c'est petit

Vous, mes amis, soyez gentils
Vous savez bien que l'on n'y peut rien
Même Paris crève d'ennui
Toutes ses rues me tuent

Et maintenant que vais-je faire
Je vais en rire pour ne plus pleurer
Je vais brûler des nuits entières
Au matin je te haïrai

Et puis un soir dans mon miroir
Je verrai bien la fin du chemin
Pas une fleur et pas de pleurs
Au moment de l'adieu

Je n'ai vraiment plus rien à faire
Je n'ai vraiment plus rien ...

Le petit oiseau de toutes les couleurs


by Gilbert Bécaud

Ce matin je sors de chez moi
Il m'attendait, il était là
Il sautillait sur le trottoir
Mon Dieu, qu'il était drôle à voir
Le p'tit oiseau de toutes les couleurs
Le p'tit oiseau de toutes les couleurs

Ça f'sait longtemps que j'n'avais pas vu
Un petit oiseau dans ma rue
Je ne sais pas ce qui m'a pris
Il faisait beau, je l'ai suivi
Le p'tit oiseau de toutes les couleurs
Le p'tit oiseau de toutes les couleurs

Où tu m'emmènes, dis
Où tu m'entraînes, dis
Va pas si vite, dis
Attends-moi!
Comm' t'es pressé, dis
T'as rendez-vous, dis
Là où tu vas, dis
J'vais avec toi

On passe devant chez Loucho
Qui me fait Hé! qui me fait Ho!
Je ne me suis pas arrêté
Pardon, l'ami, je cours après
Un p'tit oiseau de toutes les couleurs
Un p'tit oiseau de toutes les couleurs

Sur l'avenue, je l'ai plus vu
J'ai cru que je l'avais perdu
Mais je l'ai entendu siffler
Et c'était lui qui me cherchait
Le p'tit oiseau de toutes les couleurs
Le p'tit oiseau de toutes les couleurs

Où tu m'emmènes, dis
Où tu m'entraînes, dis
Va pas si vite, dis
Attends-moi!
Comm' t'es pressé, dis
T'as rendez-vous, dis
Là où tu vas, dis
J'vais avec toi

On est arrivé sur le port
Il chantait de plus en plus fort
S'est retourné, m'a regardé
Au bout d'la mer s'est envolé

J'peux pas voler, dis
J'peux pas nager, dis
J'suis prisonnier, dis
M'en veux pas
Et bon voyage, dis
Reviens-moi vite, dis
Le p'tit oiseau de toutes les couleurs

Bon voyage!
Reviens vite, dis!
Bon voyage!

L'indifférence


by Gilbert Bécaud

Les mauvais coups, les lâchetés
Quelle importance
Laisse-moi te dire
Laisse-moi te dire et te redire ce que tu sais
Ce qui détruit le monde c'est :
L'indifférence

Elle a rompu et corrompu
Même l'enfance
Un homme marche
Un homme marche, tombe, crève dans la rue
Eh bien personne ne l'a vu
L'indifférence

L'indifférence
Elle te tue à petits coups
L'indifférence
Tu es l'agneau, elle est le loup
L'indifférence
Un peu de haine, un peu d'amour
Mais quelque chose
L'indifférence
Chez toi tu n'es qu'un inconnu
L'indifférence
Tes enfants ne te parlent plus
L'indifférence
Tes vieux n'écoutent même plus
Quand tu leur causes

Vous vous aimez et vous avez
Un lit qui danse
Mais elle guette
Elle vous guette et joue au chat à la souris
Mon jour viendra qu'elle se dit
L'indifférence

L'indifférence
Elle te tue à petits coups
L'indifférence
Tu es l'agneau, elle est le loup
L'indifférence
Un peu de haine, un peu d'amour
Mais quelque chose

L'indifférence
Tu es cocu et tu t'en fous
L'indifférence
Elle fait ses petits dans la boue
L'indifférence
Y a plus de haine, y a plus d'amour
Y a plus grand-chose

L'indifférence
Avant qu'on en soit tous crevés
D'indifférence
Je voudrai la voir crucifier
L'indifférence
Qu'elle serait belle écartelée
L'indifférence

Désirée


by Gilbert Bécaud

Tu ressembles à la musique que tu danses
Tu es violence, cadence et décadence
Robot, rebelle, madone des décibels
Deux grands yeux métal
Comme un ciel sans étoile
Deux scotch, un rock, on parle, on rit, on danse
Super gadget de discothèque qui danse, danse

{Chœurs:}
Désirée
{Refrain avec chœurs:}
Désirée, oh, Désirée
Dans le cœur t'as le spleen de ta génération
Désirée, oh, Désirée
T'as le corps en blue-jeans et les rêves en jupon
Et les rêves en jupon
Désirée
Tu portes bien ton nom

Désirée

Ton appartement, une petite kitchenette et un balcon
Poster de Jane Fonda sur le mur
Des poupées sur le lit
Je n'ai rien demandé
Tu m'apportes un whisky
Tu pars, tu r'viens
Baignoire de bain romantique
On fait l'amour trop tôt, pas bien, mécanique

{Chœurs:}
Désirée
{au Refrain}

Désirée

Tu as l'angoisse de tout, de toi, de l'av'nir
Tu caches ta peur derrière ton rire
Oui tu es belle comme le désir
Désirée
Comme je t'aim'rais
Si tu savais pleurer

{au Refrain}

Désirée...

Gilbert Bécaud : Biographie



Surnommé Monsieur 100 000 volts, Gilbert Bécaud reste l’un de nos chanteurs les plus dynamiques. Pour lui, au début des années 50, on cassait déjà les fauteuils de l’Olympia, un Olympia mythique qui lui était si cher et sur la scène duquel le chanteur à la cravate à pois s’est produit 33 fois !
Jusqu’à sa mort, le 18 décembre 2001, dans sa péniche parisienne, il fut « l’un des ambassadeurs les plus talentueux de la chanson française », comme le célébra le Président Jacques Chirac.
Enfance méditerranéenne


François Gilbert Silly naît à Toulon, le 24 octobre 1927. Si le père de famille abandonne le foyer très tôt, François, son grand frère Jean et leur soeur Odette trouvent vite réconfort auprès de leur beau-père, Louis Bécaud, qu’ils ne cesseront de considérer comme leur vrai père.
Grâce à sa mère musicienne, François se lance brillamment dans la musique et intègre le conservatoire de Nice à l’âge de neuf ans. Il est alors un petit pianiste émérite.
En 1942, la famille déménage pour Paris, où François suit les cours d’un grand musicien, puis pour la Savoie où il prend part à la Résistance avec son frère Jean.
Paris


Retour à la capitale à la fin de la guerre. Le jeune François peut se consacrer à son art et se fait engager dans les cabarets parisiens. Il prend pour la circonstance le nom de son beau-père Bécaud et écrit ses premières chansons. Il n’a pas vingt ans.
Il rencontre celui qui deviendra son ami et son collaborateur, Pierre Delanoë. Mais c’est une autre rencontre qui va lancer François vers le chemin de la célébrité, celle de la Môme Piaf.
Piaf


En 1950, François rencontre un certain Jacques Pills, compositeur de talent, et futur mari d’Édith Piaf. Ensemble, ils embarquent pour les États-Unis et écrivent pour Piaf Je t’ai dans la peau. Ce titre plaît tout de suite à la chanteuse et elle l’intègre à son tour de chant.
C’est le premier succès de François. Devenu régisseur d’Edith, il rentre définitivement dans la chanson: il devient Gilbert Bécaud (Gilbert est son second prénom) et adopte sa fameuse cravate à pois.
Sentimentalement, c’est aussi le temps des grandes résolutions. Il épouse Monique Nicolas en 1952. Leur premier fils, Gaya, naît le 2 février 1953, le jour même où Gilbert enregistre son premier disque Mes mains / Les croix.
L’Olympia


S’il passe une première fois sur la scène de l’Olympia en 1953, en vedette américaine, c’est l’année suivante qu’il « explose » tout.
En février 1954, en première partie de Lucienne Delyle, des milliers de jeunes cassent les fauteuils du célèbre music-hall devant tant de dynamisme, de vitalité et de talent. Monsieur 100 000 Volts est né !
Dès 1955, avec des titres comme Je t’appartiens, Les marchés de Provence, ou Viens danser, il enchaîne les tournées à l’étranger, asseyant sa réputation de grand chanteur, des États-Unis au Maghreb, en passant par toute l’Europe.
Son jeu au piano laisse sans voix, rappelant celui, saccadé et magnifique, du grand Jerry Lee Lewis. Son second fils Philippe voit le jour en 1957. L’année suivante, Gilbert perd son véritable père et son second père, Louis Bécaud.
Et maintenant…


1961 est l’année du plus grand tube de Bécaud, Et maintenant, repris plus de 150 fois dans de nombreuses langues.
Star internationale, Gilbert se lance dans une autre aventure: un opéra. Il s’appelle l’Opéra Aran, mais n’a pas le succès attendu par son auteur, fortement assimilé à la variété.
Les années Yé-yé n’enterrent pas le grand chanteur de Nathalie ou des Dimanches à Orly. Il reste une valeur sûre de la chanson française et voyage beaucoup: Japon, Russie, Amérique du Nord et du Sud, … Sa famille s’agrandit aussi avec la naissance d’Anne, son troisième enfant.
Années 1970


Durant les années 70, Bécaud enregistre de nombreux succès, tourne pour le cinéma sous la réalisation de Lelouch, et participe à de nombreuses émissions télévisées et radiophoniques.
Ses passages à l’Olympia sont un événement. Ses disques se vendent comme des petits pains. Mais ce rythme de vie effréné fatigue beaucoup le chanteur. Son tabagisme devient un handicap pour sa voix et sa santé.
Côté coeur, après s’être séparé de Monique, il a une fille, Jennifer, avec Janet Woollacoot, puis une autre, Emily avec une jeune américaine, Kitty, en 1972. Afin de « loger » sa nombreuse famille, il achète une propriété dans le Poitou, qui, jusqu’à sa mort, restera, avec sa péniche parisienne et sa maison corse, son principal pied-à-terre. Un havre de paix dans lequel le chanteur se ressource.
1980


Outre d’autres grands succès (L’indifférence, Désirée, …), qu’il écrit généralement avec ses amis de toujours, Pierre Delanoë et Louis Amade, Gilbert renoue avec la comédie musicale en 1986 aux États-Unis.
Le spectacle s’appelle Madame Roza et est un grand succès outre-Manche, mais doit attendre des années avant d’envahir la capitale française.
Au début des années 1990, Gilbert s’affaiblit. L’âge tout d’abord, puis les décès de sa mère et d’Yves Montand en 1991, le découragent.
La vie s’assombrit pour le chanteur aux presque quarante ans de carrière. Il s’installe alors sur sa péniche près de Paris pour se reposer. Il en profite pour écrire l’un de ses derniers albums: Ensemble. De plus, avec sa femme, ils adoptent une petite laotienne en 1992, nommée Noï.
Cancer


Le cancer s’est déclaré au début des années 90. Après s’en être sorti une première fois, la rechute est difficile à vivre. Le titre de son album sorti en 1999 y fera d’ailleurs référence: Faut faire avec…, avec la maladie, avec la vieillesse, avec le temps qui emporte ses meilleurs amis et les plus grands chanteurs du 20e siècle (Trenet, Gainsbourg, Ferré, Barbara, …).
Malade, affaibli, Gilbert Bécaud trouve cependant la force d’enregistrer Le Cap, un disque qu’il n’aura pas le temps de voir publier. Il meurt le 18 décembre 2001, d’un cancer du poumon, sur sa péniche parisienne, et est enterré au Père Lachaise, près de ses « pairs », Piaf et Montand.
Le tout Paris lui rend un dernier hommage le 21 décembre, à l’église de la Madeleine, dans un Paris en larmes qu’il aimait tant.
Il laisse l’image d’un jeune homme électrique, toujours en mouvement, exemple d’une chanson française sans frontières. Sa cravate à pois, ses quelques 400 chansons et sa main sur l’oreille lors de ses concerts restent à jamais dans nos coeurs

Jean Gesner Henry (May 10, 1925 - January 29, 1998), popularly known as Coupé Cloué, was a Haïtian singer, guitarist, and bandleader. He was known for defining a style of Haïtian compas music he called kompa mamba, and for the sometimes bawdy innuendo used in his songs. During his career, he was one of Haïti's most prominent musicians, and found much success in West Africa as well.
As a young man, he received a classical music education and worked as a cabinetmaker before becoming a professional soccer player. It was from soccer, playing defense for the Port-au-Prince club Aigles Noirs, that he acquired his nickname, "Coupé Cloué" or "cut and nail".
He began performing on guitar in 1951, and in 1957 he formed the band Trio Crystal, which he later renamed Trio Select, along with another guitar player and a maraca player. Their first album, one of the dozens Henry released during his career, was released in the late 1960s. In the early 1970s the group expanded from its original three, and renamed itself Ensemble Select. That decade also saw an increase in his use of racy spoken preaching and storytelling in addition to singing during songs; this became one of his trademarks.
In 1978 Henry toured extensively in Africa, greatly increasing his international prominence. His popularity in West Africa was especially boosted by similarities between the rhythms and sounds of Henry's music and indigenous African soukous music. It was there that Henry earned the nickname Roi Coupé, or King Coupé. During the 1980s and early 1990s, Henry continued to perform and record prolifically.
Henry died of diabetes in January 1998, having only retired from performing the previous month. He was mourned in Port-au-Prince by a day-long outdoor funeral celebration, attended by thousands of people, including the interim Minister of Culture.

Suspicious minds


by Elvis Presley


Album: Best artist of the century [#20]

We're caught in a trap
I can't walk out
Because I love you too much baby

Why can't you see
What you're doing to me
When you don't believe a word I say?

We can't go on together
With suspicious minds
And we can't build our dreams
On suspicious minds

So, if an old friend I know
Drops by to say hello
Would I still see suspicion in your eyes?

Here we go again
Asking where I've been
You can't see these tears are real
I'm crying

We can't go on together
With suspicious minds
And be can't build our dreams
On suspicious minds

Oh let our love survive
Or dry the tears from your eyes
Let's don't let a good thing die

When honey, you know
I've never lied to you
Mmm yeah, yeah

Can't help falling in love


by Elvis Presley

Wise men say
Only fools rush in
But I can't help falling in love with you
{x2}

Shall I stay
Would it be a sin
I can't help falling in love with you

As the river flows
Gently to the sea
Darling so we go
Some things were meant to be

Take my hand
Take my whole heart too
I can't help falling in love with you

As the river flows
Gently to the sea
Darling so we go
Some things were meant to be

Take my hand
Take my whole life too
I can't help falling in love with you

I can't help falling in love with you...

Always on my mind


by Elvis Presley

Maybe I didn't treat you
Quite as good as I should have
Maybe I didn't love you
Quite as often as I could have
Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
Give me, give me one more chance
To keep you satisfied, satisfied

Maybe I didn't hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you
I'm so happy that you're mine
If I make you feel second best
Girl, I'm sorry I was blind

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
Give me, give me one more chance
To keep you satisfied, satisfied

Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time
You were always on my mind
You are always on my mind
You are always on my mind.

In the ghetto


by Elvis Presley

As the snow flies
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
A poor little baby child is born
In the ghetto
And his mama cries
'cause if there's one thing that she don't need
it's another hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto

People, don't you understand
the child needs a helping hand
or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day
Take a look at you and me,
are we too blind to see,
do we simply turn our heads
and look the other way

Well the world turns
and a hungry little boy with a runny nose
plays in the street as the cold wind blows
In the ghetto

And his hunger burns
so he starts to roam the streets at night
and he learns how to steal
and he learns how to fight
In the ghetto

Then one night in desperation
a young man breaks away
He buys a gun, steals a car,
tries to run, but he don't get far
And his mama cries

As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man
face down on the street with a gun in his hand
In the ghetto

As her young man dies,
on a cold and gray Chicago mornin',
another little baby child is born
In the ghetto

Biography






Simply put, Elvis Presley was the first real rock & roll star. A white Southerner singing blues laced with country, and country laced with gospel, he brought together American music from both sides of the color line and performed it with a natural hip-swiveling sexuality that made him a teen idol and a role model for generations of cool rebels. He was repeatedly dismissed as vulgar, incompetent, and a bad influence, but the force of his music and his image was no mere merchandising feat. Presley signaled to mainstream culture that it was time to let go. Four decades after his death, Presley’s image and influence remain undiminished. While certainly other artists preceded him and he by no means “invented” rock & roll, he is indisputably its king.

As a recording artist, Presley’s accomplishments are unparalleled. He is believed to have sold over 1 billion records worldwide, about 40 percent of those outside the U.S. The RIAA has awarded Presley the largest number of gold, platinum, and multiplatinum certifications of any artist in history; as of early 2001, 131. His chart performance, as tracked by Billboard, is also unmatched, with 149 charting pop singles: 114 Top 40, 40 Top 10, and 18 #1s.

Presley was the son of Gladys and Vernon Presley, a sewing-machine operator and a truck driver. Elvis’ twin brother, Jesse Garon, was stillborn, and Elvis grew up an only child. When he was three, his father served an eight-month prison term for writing bad checks, and afterward Vernon Presley’s employment was erratic, keeping the family just above poverty level. The Presleys attended the First Assembly of God Church, and its Pentecostal services always involved singing.

In 1945 Presley won second prize at the Mississippi-Alabama Fair and Diary Show for his rendition of Red Foley’s “Old Shep.” The following January he received a guitar for his birthday. In 1948 the family moved to Memphis, and while attending L.C. Humes High School there, Presley spent much of his spare time hanging around the black section of town, especially on Beale Street, where bluesmen like Furry Lewis and B.B. King performed.

Upon graduation in June 1953, Presley worked at the Precision Tool Company and then drove a truck for Crown Electric. He planned to become a truck driver and had begun to wear his long hair pompadoured, the current truck-driver style. That summer he recorded “My Happiness” and “That’s Where Your Heartaches Begin” at the Memphis Recording Service, a sideline Sam Phillips had established in his Sun Records studios where anyone could record a 10-inch acetate for four dollars.

Presley was reportedly curious to know what he sounded like and gravely disappointed by what he heard. But he returned to the Recording Service again on January 4, 1954, and recorded “Casual Love Affair” and “I’ll Never Stand in Your Way.” This time he met Phillips, who called him later that spring to record a song that Phillips had received on a demo, “Without You.” Despite numerous takes, Presley failed miserably and at Phillips’ request just began singing songs in the studio. Phillips then began to believe that he had finally found what he had been looking for: “a white man with the Negro sound and the Negro feel.”

Phillips enlisted lead guitarist Scotty Moore and bassist Bill Black, both of whom were then playing country & western music in Doug Poindexter’s Starlight Wranglers. Though some sources cite the date of their first meeting as July 4, 1954, the three had actually rehearsed for several months, and on July 5, 1954, they recorded three songs: “I Love You Because,” “Blue Moon of Kentucky,” and the A-side of Presley’s eventual debut, Arthur “Big Boy” Crudup’s “That’s All Right.”

Two days later Memphis disc jockey Dewey Phillips (no relation to Sam) played the song on his Red Hot and Blue show on radio station WHBQ. Audience response was overwhelming, and that night Presley came to the studio for his first interview. Scotty Moore became Presley’s manager, and “That’s All Right” b/w “Blue Moon of Kentucky” became his first local hit. After playing local shows, Presley made his first--and last--appearance at the Grand Ole Opry on September 25. Legend has it that after his performance he was advised by the Opry’s talent coordinator to go back to driving trucks.

By October Presley had debuted on The Louisiana Hayride, a popular radio program on which he appeared regularly through 1955. He made his television debut on a local television version of Hayride in March 1955. Meanwhile, “Good Rockin’ Tonight” b/w “I Don’t Care If the Sun Don’t Shine” were hits in the Memphis area.

In early 1955 Moore stopped managing Presley, although he would continue to play in Presley’s band for several years. Presley’s new manager was Memphis disc jockey Bob Neal. Colonel Thomas Parker first entered Presley’s career when he helped Neal make some tour arrangements. Presley, still considered a country act, continued to perform locally, and in April he traveled to New York City, where he auditioned unsuccessfully for Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts program. But on May 13 his performance in Jacksonville, Florida, started a riot, Presley’s first. “Baby, Let’s Play House” b/w “I’m Left, You’re Right, She’s Gone” was released and hit Number Ten on the national C&W chart in July.

That September, Presley had his first Number One country record, a version of Junior Parker’s “Mystery Train” b/w “I Forgot to Remember to Forget.” By this time Colonel Parker, despite Presley’s agreement with Neal, had become increasingly involved in his career. When RCA purchased Presley’s contract from Sun for a then unheard-of $35,000, Hill and Range, a music publisher with which Parker had some connections, purchased Sam Phillips’ Hi-Lo Music for another $15,000. In addition, Presley received a $5,000 advance, with which he bought his mother a pink Cadillac. (It remains among his possessions preserved at Graceland.)

Presley became a national star in 1956. He and Parker traveled to Nashville, where Presley cut his first records for RCA (including “I Got a Woman,” “Heartbreak Hotel,” and “I Was the One”), and on January 28, 1956, the singer made his national television debut on the Dorsey Brothers’ Stage Show, followed by six consecutive appearances. In March, Parker signed Presley to a managerial agreement for which he would receive 25 percent of Presley’s earnings. The contract would last through Presley’s lifetime and beyond.

Presley performed on the Milton Berle, Steve Allen, and Ed Sullivan television shows. The Colonel arranged Presley’s debut at the New Frontier Hotel in Las Vegas that April, but the two-week engagement was canceled after one week due to poor audience response. In August he began filming his first movie, Love Me Tender, which was released three months later and recouped its $1 million cost in three days. Elvis’ hit singles that year were all certified gold; they included “Heartbreak Hotel” (Number One), “I Was the One” (Number 19), “Blue Suede Shoes” (Number 20), “I Want You, I Need You, I Love You” (Number One), “Don’t Be Cruel” b/w “Hound Dog” (Number One), “My Baby Left Me” (Number 31), “Love Me Tender” (Number One), “Anyway You Want Me (That’s How I Will Be)” (Number 20), “Love Me” (Number Two), and “When My Blue Moon Turns to Gold” (Number 19). By early 1957 he was the idol of millions of teens and the perfect target for the wrath of critics, teachers, clergy, and even other entertainers (including many country performers), all of whom saw his style as too suggestive; he was nicknamed Elvis the Pelvis by one writer. Presley repeatedly claimed not to understand what all the criticism was about. On January 6, 1957, when Presley made the last of his three appearances on Ed Sullivan’s show, he was shown only from the waist up.

In March 1957 Presley purchased Graceland, a former church that had been converted into a 23-room mansion; the next month “All Shook Up” began an eight-week run at Number One. It was preceded in 1957 by “Poor Boy” (Number 24), “Too Much” (Number One), and “Playing for Keeps” (Number 21). Presley’s next single was his first gospel release, “(There’ll Be) Peace in the Valley (For Me)”; it went to Number 25.

Presley was also the first rock star to cross over into films with consistently commercial, if not critical, success. His second film, Loving You, was released in July 1957, and “(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear” from the soundtrack hit Number One on the pop, country, and R&B charts, as did “All Shook Up,” and “Jailhouse Rock,” the title song from Presley’s next movie, which featured Lieber and Stoller songs. Other hit singles from 1957 were “Loving You” (Number 20) and “Treat Me Nice” (Number 18).

That December Presley received his draft notice but was granted a 60-day deferment to complete filming King Creole, a drama based on the novel A Stone for Danny Fisher, costarring Carolyn Jones and Walter Mattau. These first four feature films are considered to be his best. Early in the game, Presley truly intended to be taken seriously as an actor. Unfortunately, once he left the service, the choice of roles was left entirely up to Colonel Parker, and the results were rarely satisfactory for either the audience or Presley. However, since Presley would not tour again until the early ’70s, it was through the films that most fans saw him. Despite anything that might be said of these films, that reason alone accounts for their massive success.

On March 24, 1958, Presley entered the army. The preceding months brought two hits: “Don’t” (Number One, 1958) and “I Beg of You” (Number Eight, 1958). He took leave a few months later to be with his mother; Gladys Presley died the day after his arrival home in Memphis, on August 14, 1958. In later interviews Presley would call her death the great tragedy of his life. In the years since his death, much has been written about his relationship with his mother and her impact on him. She was without question the most important person in his life. At her funeral, he cried out, “You know how much I lived my whole life just for you,” words that were both true in the moment and prophetic, for the absence of Gladys, and his love for her, seemed to have never really left his mind. He was shipped to Bremerhaven, West Germany, and in January 1960 was promoted to sergeant. He was discharged that March.

Colonel Parker, meanwhile, had continued to release singles Presley had recorded before his departure, ensuring that while Elvis was gone, he would not be forgotten. He scored a number of hits in absentia, including “Wear My Ring Around Your Neck” (Number Two, 1958), “Don’tcha Think It’s Time” (Number 15, 1958), “Hard Headed Woman” (Number One, 1958), “Don’t Ask Me Why” (Number 25, 1958), “One Night” (Number Four, 1958), “I Got Stung” (Number Eight, 1958), “(Now and Then There’s) A Fool Such as I” (Number Two, 1959), “I Need Your Love Tonight” (Number Four, 1959), “A Big Hunk o’ Love” (Number One, 1959), and “My Wish Came True” (Number 12, 1959). In 1958 alone, Presley earned over $2 million. Shortly after returning to civilian life, Presley made his first stereo record, “Stuck on You” (Number One), and in late March 1960, he taped a TV program with Frank Sinatra, The Frank Sinatra-Timex Special.

In July, Presely’s father remarried. Vernon Presley’s second wife, Davada “Dee” Stanley, and her three sons would later write Elvis: We Love You Tender, one of dozens of insiders’ tell-all biographies that were published following his death. Also at this time, Presley gathered more closely around him the friends, employees, and hangers-on who would become known as the Memphis Mafia and would accompany him almost constantly until his death. Presley’s world became increasingly insular.

The films G.I. Blues and Flaming Star were released in 1960, and “It’s Now or Never” hit Number One in both the U.K. and the U.S. Presley had five Number One U.S. hits: “Stuck on You,” “It’s Now or Never,” “Are You Lonesome Tonight” (1960); “Surrender” (1961); and “Good Luck Charm” (1962). Other Top 10 singles included “I Feel So Bad” (Number Five, 1961), “Little Sister” (Number Five, 1961), “(Marie’s the Name) His Latest Flame” (Number Four, 1961), “Can’t Help Falling in Love” (Number Two, 1961), “She’s Not You” (Number Five, 1962), “Return to Sender” (Number Two, 1962), “(You’re the) Devil in Disguise” (Number Three, 1963), and “Bossa Nova Baby” (Number Eight, 1963). Meanwhile, over Christmas 1960, Priscilla Beaulieu, the teenage daughter of an army officer whom Elvis met in Germany, visited Graceland. In early 1961 she moved in to live, it was said, under the supervision of Presley’s father and stepmother. Interestingly, the press largely went along with the spin Colonel Parker put on the story, and few seemed troubled that the King of Rock & Roll shared his domain with his teenage girlfriend.

After a live performance on March 25, 1961, at a benefit for the USS Arizona, Presley left the concert stage. He spent the next eight years making B movies: Wild in the Country; Blue Hawaii (1961); Follow That Dream; Kid Galahad; Girls! Girls! Girls! (1962); It Happened at the World’s Fair; Fun in Acapulco (1963); Kissin’ Cousins; Viva Las Vegas; Roustabout (1964); Girl Happy; Tickle Me; Harum Scarum (1965); Frankie and Johnny; Paradise, Hawaiian Style; Spinout (1966); Easy Come, Easy Go; Double Trouble; Clambake</I> (1967); Stay Away Joe; Speedway; Live a Little, Love a Little (1968); Charro!; The Trouble with Girls (and How to Get Into It); Change of Habit (1969). With a few exceptions, the soundtrack music was generally poor. But by the mid-’60s Presley was earning $1 million per movie plus a large percentage of the gross. Most of the movies had a concurrently released soundtrack LP. Four of them hit Number One (Loving You, G.I. Blues, Blue Hawaii, Roustabout), and an additional seven were Top 10. Presley often made his displeasure with these films known to friends and associates, but Colonel Parker would not relent in his insistence that his sole client stick with a winning formula. Years later, in 1974, Parker’s shortsightedness as a manager resulted in his refusing Barbra Streisand’s offer to have Presley costar with her in what became a hit remake of A Star Is Born. Parker felt Streisand didn’t deserve equal billing with Presley.

Meanwhile, the younger rock audience heard Presley disciples like the Beatles more often than they heard Presley himself. But Presley did not disappear and he was not, like most American rockers, swept away by the British Invasion, though the Top 10 became increasingly beyond his reach, with only “Crying in the Chapel” (which he recorded in 1960) at Number Three (1965) making the cut. Presley turned increasingly inward, focusing on his family. On May 1, 1967, Elvis and Priscilla were wed in Las Vegas; on February 1, 1968, their only child, Lisa Marie, was born. Fearing he had been forgotten, Presley made a last-gasp bid to regain his footing. He defied Colonel Parker and followed the advice of director Steve Binder for his “comeback” television special. (Parker had wanted it to be a Christmas show.) Over the summer Presley taped the surprisingly raw, powerful Elvis television special that was broadcast on December 3 to high ratings. Its soundtrack reached Number Eight. It included his first performance before an audience in over seven years (though many portions were taped without an audience). It also spun off his first Top 15 single since 1965, the socially conscious “If I Can Dream” (Number 12, 1968). The importance of this moment in Presley’s life cannot be overestimated. Years later, the ’68 comeback special still stands as one of the most powerful performances in rock history.

With that success behind him, Presley turned to performing in Las Vegas. His monthlong debut at the International Hotel in Las Vegas began on July 26, 1969, and set the course for all of Presley’s future performances. His fee for the four weeks was over $1 million. Riding the crest of his comeback, Presley released a series of top singles, including “In the Ghetto” (Number Three, 1969), “Suspicious Minds” (Number One, 1969--his first chart-topper in over seven years), “Don’t Cry Daddy” (Number Six, 1969), and “The Wonder of You” (Number Nine, 1970). He toured the country annually, selling out showrooms, auditoriums, and arenas, frequently breaking box-office records. Until his death, he performed a total of nearly 1,100 concerts. There were two on-tour documentaries released, Elvis: That’s the Way It Is (1970) and Elvis on Tour (1972), the latter of which won the Golden Globe Award for Best Doucmentary.

Presley was honored with countless Elvis Presley Days in cities across the country, and the U.S. Jaycees named him one of the 10 most outstanding young men in America in 1970. His birthplace in Tupelo was opened to the public, and on January 18, 1972, the portion of Highway 51 South that runs in front of Graceland was renamed Elvis Presley Boulevard. That October, Presley had his last Top 10 hit with “Burning Love” (Number Two).

Meanwhile, Presley’s personal life became the subject of countless tabloid headlines. Priscilla, from whom Presley had been separated since February 1972, refused to return to Graceland, and on his birthday in 1973 he filed for divorce. Less than a week later the TV special Elvis: Aloha From Hawaii was broadcast via satellite to over a billion viewers in 40 countries, an indication of his international appeal, although (with the exception of three dates in Canada in 1957 and an impromptu performance while on leave in Paris in 1959) Presley never performed outside the U.S. The special’s soundtrack album became his last Number One album in 1973.

Outwardly, Presley appeared to have been given a second chance. He was more popular than ever, and the fan worship that would blossom into one of the biggest personality cults in modern history was taking hold. Offstage, however, Presley was plagued by self-doubt, poor management, and a basic dissatisfaction with his life. He repeatedly threatened to quit show business, but debts and his financial obligations to his large extended family, employees, and assorted hangers-on made that impossible. Unbeknownst to the public until after his death, Presley turned to drugs. Soon after he left the army, he became increasingly wary of the public and would often rent whole movie theaters and amusement parks to visit at night. By the late ’60s he was nearly a total recluse. Among the many books written by Presley by those who knew him, Priscilla’s account, Elvis and Me, goes so far as to suggest that he might have suffered a total nervous breakdown. Although it now seems clear that Presley was taking drugs--namely amphetamines--while in the service (and perhaps even before), his abuse of prescription drugs, including barbiturates, tranquilizers, and amphetamines, increased during the last years of his life. Several painful physical conditions may have initiated this trend. Ironically, he remained devoutly spiritual, never drank alcohol, and publicly denounced the use of recreational drugs. In one of his few unplanned excursions from Graceland, he actually showed up at the White House in 1970 to meet President Richard M. Nixon and received an honorary Drug Enforcement Administration agent’s badge. Days later he was given a special tour of FBI headquarters, where according to FBI files made public after Presley’s death, the singer offered to provide information on persons he believed were a bad influence on American youth.

Toward the end of his life, however, his onstage presence began to deteriorate. He would babble incoherently and rip his pants, having grown quite obese, and on at least one occasion he collapsed. Despite his clearly worsening health, he maintained a frantic tour schedule. This was due to the fact that in 1973 Colonel Parker had negotiated a complex deal whereby Presley sold back to RCA the rights to many of his masters in exchange for a lump-sum payment of which only $2.8 million came to him. Essentially, after 1973 Parker was earning nearly 50 percent commission (as opposed to the 10 percent industry standard). Worse, however, Presley was not earning any more royalties on sides recorded before 1973, although they continued to sell in the millions year after year. Parker’s need to satisfy personal gambling debts was said to be the reason for the self-serving deal. On top of it all, Presley opposed tax shelters on principle; he naively relied on his father for business advice; and he gave away expensive gifts and cash heedlessly. The result, by the mid-’70s, was near-certain financial disaster.

Presley’s last live performance was on June 25, 1977, in Indianapolis. He was reportedly horrified at the impending publication of Elvis: What Happened?, the tell-all written by three of his e-bodyguards and Memphis Mafiosi that was the first printed account of his drug abuse and obsession with firearms, to name just two headline-grabbing revelations. The book came out on August 12. On August 16, 1977--the day before his next scheduled concert--Presley was discovered by girlfriend Ginger Alden dead in his bathroom at Graceland. Although his death was at first attributed to congestive heart failure (an autopsy also revealed advance arteriosclerosis and an enlarged liver), later investigation revealed evidence that drug abuse may have been at least part of the cause of death. Because the family was allowed to keep the official autopsy report private, additional speculation regarding contributing factors in Presley’s death has run wild. Through the years, several insiders have insisted that he was suffering from bone cancer, to name just one unsubstantiated claim. In September 1979 Presley’s private physician, Dr. George Nichopoulos, was charged by the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners with “indiscriminately prescribing 5,300 pills and vials for Elvis in the seven months before his death.” He was later acquitted.

Thousands gathered at Graceland, where Presley lay in state before he was buried in a mausoleum at Forest Hill Cemetery in Memphis. After attempts were made to break into the mausoleum, Presley’s body and that of his mother were moved to the Meditation Garden behind Graceland. Nearly two years later, his father, Vernon, died and was also buried there. With Vernon dead, all of Presley’s estate passed on to Lisa Marie.

Court battles over the estate ended in June 1983 after 21 months of litigation with a settlement that ended four lawsuits. One of the terms of the agreement called for Parker to turn over most of his interest in Presley’s audio and video recordings to RCA and the Presley family in return for a large monetary settlement. Lisa Marie’s court-appointed guardian ad litem, Blanchard Tual, wrote in his report on Presley’s financial affairs that Parker had “handled affairs not in Elvis’ but in his own best interest.” Parker died of a stroke in February 1997 at the age of 87. Priscilla Presley assumed control of the estate and through a number of business moves made the Presley estate many times more valuable than it had ever been during Elvis’ lifetime. The cornerstone of the Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. (EPE) financial empire is the Tennessee state law Priscilla Presley pushed for that guarantees to heirs the commercial rights to a deceased celebrity’s image and likeness. As a result, the name Elvis Presley is, technically speaking, a trademark, and anyone selling Presley-related merchandise in the U.S. must pay EPE an advance fee plus a royalty on every item sold.

Claiming the funds were needed to maintain the property (the estate was valued at only $5 million in 1979 and the costs to maintain Graceland are estimated at nearly half a million dollars annually), Priscilla Presley opened Graceland to the public in the fall of 1982. Although it is not preserved in exactly the way Elvis Presley left it, and the second floor, where his bedroom is located, remains off-limits to the public, millions have come from all over the world to pay homage to the King of Rock & Roll. In 1991 Graceland was added to the National Register of Historic Places. At last count, around 600,000 people visit Graceland annually. In the mid-’90s, the Presley estate was estimated to have been worth over $100 million. At the turn of the century, it was estimated that the presence of Graceland was responsible for bringing $100 million into the local Memphis economy. The Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation was created in 1985 by EPE to support various causes.

Presley’s sole heir, Lisa Marie, married a fellow Scientology follower, Danny Keough, in 1988. They had two children: Danielle and Benjamin Storm. In 1993 they were divorced, and in May 1994 she married Michael Jackson. They divorced in 1996, after 18 months of marriage. In August 2005, Lisa Marie sold 85 percent of her share of the Presley estate to CKX Inc., which also owns 19 Entertainment, the company responsible for the American Idol TV show. Lisa Marie kept the Graceland property and most of its belongings. In February 2006, CKX announced its plan to increase Graceland’s tourist-destination profile.

Hundreds of books about Presley have been published in the U.S. alone. His enduring power as a cultural force is beyond the scope of this biography, but it has been examined by a number of authors, including Dave Marsh, Greil Marcus, and Peter Guralnick, to name a few. Guralnick’s award winning two-volume biography--Last Train to Memphis: The Rise of Elvis Presley (1994) and Careless Love: The Unmaking of Elvis Presley (1999)--is perhaps the closest to a definitive account as we will ever have. In 1986 Presley was among the first 10 performers inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2002, Presley’s “A Little Less Conversation,” from the Roustabout soundtrack (1968), was remixed by JXL (a.k.a. Junkie XL--the DJ-producer allowed his name to be truncated for the remix) and became a Number One U.K. hit, helping propel a new compilation, 30 #1 Hits, to healthy sales worldwide. (It reached Number One itself in the U.S.) 30 #1 Hits was later followed by 2nd to None (Number Three, 2003), both of which were folded into a three-disc box titled Hitstory.

Brook Benton - Endlessly





Endlessly

- Artist: Brook Benton

Higher than the highest mountain
And deeper than the deepest sea
That's how I will love you, oh, darling, endlessly

Softer than the gentle breezes
And stronger than the wild oak tree
That's how I will hold you, oh, darling, endlessly

Oh, my love, you are my heaven
You are my kingdom, you are my crown
Oh, my love, you're all that I prayed for
You were made for these arms to surround

Faithful as a morning sunrise
And sacred as a love can be
That's how I will love you, oh darling, endlessly

Darling, endlessly
Darling, endlessly

"Brook Benton It's Just A Matter Of Time
Someday, some way, you'll realize that you've been blind
Yes, darling, you're going to need me again
It's just a matter of time

Go on, go on, until you reach the end of the line
But I know you'll pass my way again
It's just a matter of time

After I gave you everything I had
You laughed and called me a clown
Remember, in your search for fortune and fame
What goes up must come down

I know, I know that one day you'll wake up and find
That my love was a true love
It's just a matter of time

"Rainy Night In Georiga"

Hoverin' by my suitcase, tryin' to find a warm place to spend the night

Heavy rain fallin', seems I hear your voice callin' "It's all right."

A rainy night in Georgia, a rainy night in Georgia

It seems like it's rainin' all over the world

I feel like it's rainin' all over the world


Neon signs a-flashin', taxi cabs and buses passin' through the night

A distant moanin' of a train seems to play a sad refrain to the night

A rainy night in Georgia, such a rainy night in Georgia

Lord, I believe it's rainin' all over the world

I feel like it's rainin' all over the world


How many times I wondered

It still comes out the same

No matter how you look at it or think of it

It's life and you just got to play the game


I find me a place in a box car, so I take my guitar to pass some time

Late at night when it's hard to rest I hold your picture to my chest and I feel fine

(minor scat) But it's a rainy night in Georgia, baby, it's a rainy night in Georgia I

feel it's rainin' all over the world, kinda lonely now And it's rainin' all over the world


Oh, have you ever been lonely, people?

And you feel that it was rainin' all over this man's world

You're talking 'bout rainin', rainin', rainin', rainin', rainin', rainin', rainin',

rainin', rainin' rainin', rainin', rainin'
