That's how old Elvis would have been today. Anyway, in celebration my list of 3 overlooked and underappreciated Elvis songs as of this moment. 3 from each decade. And all covers.

50's - "Blue Moon" 1954 Eeerie, perfect for late night listening. And one of the only times (the only time?) Elvis sang falsetto (at the end of the song)

60's- "Tomorrow Is A Long Time" 1966 What looked like a throwaway on the Spinout soundtrack turned out to be the definitive version of this Dylan song

70's- "Promised Land" better version than Chuck Berry's. From 1974 and proving that when the mood struck him he could still get it up
