The Nation’s Favourite Elvis Song (UK) (Elvis news)

The Nation’s Favourite Elvis Song (UK) (Elvis news)

On Friday November 8th, between 9.00pm - 10.30pm the British TV channel ITV will broadcast "The Nation’s Favourite Elvis Song".
This 90-minute special tells the story behind the 20 greatest songs ever recorded by Elvis Presley,
the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, and reveals The Nation’s Favourite Elvis Song.
Elvis Presley changed the music world forever and was one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century.
He holds the record for Most Hit Singles on the US Chart and Most Hit Albums on the UK Chart,
and his legacy continues to influence generations.

Mixing rich archive footage and home videos with new interviews, the documentary paints a picture of the man behind the music,
telling the story of how these timeless songs came about and what impact they had on the world.

The show features different generations of international pop stars and musicians influenced by Elvis
including Michael Bublé, Sir Cliff Richard, Suzi Quatro, Michael Ball, Englebert Humperdink and Cerys Matthews.

Priscilla Presley, Elvis’s ex-wife and mother to their daughter Lisa Marie Presley, is also featured exclusively in the documentary,
giving a rare interview about the King and his music.
Priscilla says: “When Elvis sang a song that he loved, he’d get lost.
He’d forget people were around. You’re witnessing a moment, you almost feel like you’re invading his privacy.”

Sir Cliff Richard admits: “It wasn’t just that I wanted to be like Elvis,
I wanted to wake up and find I was Elvis.”
Global superstar Michael Bublé said: “God kissed his throat, truly.” Musical theatre star Michael Ball said:
“No one makes a party rock like Elvis.”

The programme also hears from those who worked with Elvis, from songwriters to backing singers and session musicians.
The documentary ventures into Elvis’ former home in Memphis, Graceland, following in the footsteps of nearly 20 million visitors,
to see how popular the King remains to this day.

All the songs from the programme are to feature on a brand new compilation album, ‘The Nation’s Favourite Elvis Songs’, released on 4 November 2013 from Sony Music.
