Remembering Elvis Presley

August 16, 1977…

It’s been 37 years since Elvis Presley died. I remember were I was when I heard the news. I was playing with the console stereo/TV and then I heard the announcement. I was only 10 years old, but I was sad to hear that one if my favorite singers had past away.

Being an Elvis fan since I can remember,  I always take a moment in August 16th to pay my respects.

Hopefully, I’ll make it to Graceland to be a part of another Elvis Week (last one was the 25th anniversary if his death.)

Until then, I still have his music to listen to and movies to watch.

Here are a few a of my favorite pictures of Elvis.

I Smell Cake #2

“I Smell Cake” is a saying from the TV show “Scrubs.”

“I smell cake! If Uncle Bernie died, someone’s gonna have to go on a beer run!”— Dan Dorian

I just noticed that my last few posts have been R.I.P. and today isn’t any different.

I read that Lauren Bacall (September 16, 1924 – August 12, 2014), an American film and stage actress and model, known for her distinctive husky voice and sultry looks died.

Lauren Becall

Older Lauren Becall

I didn’t see very many movies of hers. I did like her in her role in The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996), After reading some of her movies, here is a list of the ones that I want to see.

And I will always remember her whenever I hear. “Bacall and Bogart” in the 1981 song “Key Largo” by Bertie Higgins

Reflections of My Life

Heard this song the other day and I’ve must have watched the video (three different versions/time periods.)

Reflections of My Life
by Marmalade

The changing of sunlight to moonlight
Reflections of my life
Oh how they fill my eyes

[Repeat: x 2]
The greetings of people in trouble
Reflections of my life
Oh how they fill my eyes

[Chorus]
Oh my sorrows
Sad tomorrows
Take me back to my own home

[Chorus: x 2]
Oh my crying (Oh my crying)
Feel I’m dying, dying
Take me back
to my own home

The changing of sunlight to moonlight
Reflections of my life
Oh how they fill my eyes

I’m changing, arranging,
I’m changing,
I’m changing everything
Everything around me

The changing of sunlight to moonlight
Reflections of my life
Oh how they fill my eyes

The world is
a bad place
A bad place
A terrible place to live
Oh but I don’t want to die …

[Chorus: x 2]

One Shining Moment

I’m stealing this from my post in 2012.

One Shining Moment

I’m a fan of Men’s College Basketball and I usually watch the games during March Madness. But my favorite part of NCAA Men’s College Basketball Championship, is that they play “One Shining Moment” by Luther Vandross.

After I saw, I watched it again. I just love this song and I like the CBS montage shows with the song.

Here is the 2014 version of “One Shining Moment”.

Lyrics to “One Shining Moment“

The ball is tipped
and there you are
you’re running for your life
you’re a shooting star
And all the years
no one knows
just how hard you worked
but now it shows…
(in) ONE SHINING MOMENT, IT’S ALL ON THE LINE
ONE SHINING MOMENT, THERE FROZEN IN TIME

But time is short
and the road is long
in the blinking of an eye
ah that moment’s gone
And when it’s done
win or lose
you always did your best
cuz inside you knew…
(that) ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU REACHED DEEP INSIDE
ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU KNEW YOU WERE ALIVE

Feel the beat of your heart
feel the wind in your face
it’s more than a contest
it’s more than a race…

And when it’s done
win or lose
you always did your best
cuz inside you knew…
(that) ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU REACHED FOR THE SKY
ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU KNEW
ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU WERE WILLING TO TRY
ONE SHINING MOMENT….

Words & Music: David Barrett Hodges Song Supply/ASCAP
