ELVIS BUKOWSKI







August 16th. CHARLES BUKOWSKI's birthday in 1920. ELVIS PRESLEY's death day in 1977. Please note "Elvis Lives" from THE LAST NIGHT OF THE EARTH POEMS, one of his very best books. Read here: (CHARLES BUKOWSKI--ELVIS LIVES.) For now, I offer this comparative consideration:



1. "Hound Dog"...........................................................................LOVE IS A DOG FROM HELL


2. "Are You Lonesome Tonight?"....YOU GET SO ALONE THAT AT TIMES IT JUST MAKES SENSE


3. "Return to Sender".............................................................................................POST OFFICE


4. "I Was Born 10,000 Years Ago".........................................................................Dinosauria, We


5. G.I. BLUES..............................................................................................WAR ALL THE TIME


6. "Heartbreak Hotel"............................................................THE ROOMINGHOUSE MADRIGALS


7. VIVA LAS VEGAS................................................LONGSHOT POMES FOR BROKE PLAYERS


8. JAILHOUSE ROCK..............................................................Doing Time With Public Enemy #1


9. GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS! ...........................................................................WOMEN


10. 50,000,000 ELVIS FANS CAN'T BE WRONG.......................................The Genius of the Crowd




Happy drinking, be it mournful or celebratory.
