I know it's a bit early, but I had to get some things done so I recorded this for you all.  Hopefully I didn't do too bad of job on it.  Yes I know it should be in the Karaoke music area but didn't think everyone would see it there.

So here's another Elvis with a message for you all.



So early Merry Christmas!

Thanks Roy.  I didn't know if anyone would even listen to this all the way through.  It was just a fun way to wish everyone a Merry Christmas....even if a bit early.  I tried to find a different song that I could sing and didn't have any luck getting a music track.  So Elvis was it.  LOL!

Have a nice holiday season....even if it started at 4AM sales this morning. :shock:

Thank you for this!!!!  Love it!!  But Mike, that ain't you singin'!  Now I know you have Elivs tucked away in your basement.  Man, he must be pretty dang old by now, does he still like to eat peanut butter and banana sandwiches?  And how did you get him off of all the pills he was taking? :shock:

You're welcome Brenda.  Just a little something I threw together.  Not quite the song I wanted to do, but one I could get the music for....LOL!

I'm not sure if Elvis will come out and play very often, but he says Merry Christmas....mmmm...peanut butter....mmmm...bananas.....;)

Dang, that was cool. All you need are some side burns and Elvis will live again.

Thanks Mike for all your hard work. I enjoy this site very much. I wish you and yours a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.:)

Thanks Rick.  It was lots of fun doing this one for you all.  I'll keep honing the Elvis style chops and maybe one day I will be able to sing an original song that sounds like him.  That would be pretty cool. :cool:

Yeah, I was hoping it didn't sound too Red Sovine on that part.  LOL!  I really was not trying to sound like Elvis, I just sang it and sort of got into it.  Now I want to go and try to do it more like the king!

I'm thinking I could pull off the Red Sovine look with some black glasses and a smirk!  Of course I would have to tint my hair, change my part and shorten my chin.  Penny's pretty good at doing things like that.  Whatcha think?

Oh yeah, Merry Christmas back at 'ya!
