Known as the artist responsible for bringing rock and roll to the forefront, Elvis Presley was born in 1935 in Tupelo, MS. His unique fusion of country and blues became known as rockabilly, but the artist is also known for a variety of gospel and bluegrass as well. Releasing his first recordings in the 1950s, Presley’s sexually-charged stage presence and powerful vocals catapulted him into the limelight. Though he released a total of 84 albums, by the time of his widely speculated-about death in 1977, the rock and roll icon was the focus of much controversy and gossip involving drug use and overall isolation, though he still remains popular today.
That awkward moment when you realize you are with someone who is exactly like the person you used to be with in some aspects. They look alike, and the gestures might be even the same, but it's no that other person. And maybe what you saw in this one are those things that reminded you of the other one and everything becomes one big mess. Elvis knew how to say it.
You see someone for who he or she is and it's so incredible, such an amazing person that you can't believe you know them. Not just a lover, but a friend or family as well. You have a person who gets you and that's all that matters and a hug together with a kiss might be all you need.
