Elvis In South Africa

July 22, 2012 | Other

We received an email from the Elvis fan club in South Africa, let's all support them:

In South Africa we only have one radio poll where Elvis can be king: the Solid Gold Hall of Fame presented by 702 Talk Radio where you can vote for your favourite song. In previous years Elvis has had a total of 7 songs voted for - more than for any other artist - but he yet has to have a number 1.

As this August 16 marks the 35th anniversary of Elvis’ passing, we call on all fans world-wide to vote! How about this year getting 10 Elvis songs voted for AND a number 1? That would be something! To vote in the Hall of Fame, select It’s Now or Never from the list and nominate another Elvis Presley song at the bottom. Then you can fill in your details and submit your vote.

The songs most voted for in the past are: An American Trilogy, Suspicious Minds, Jailhouse Rock, The Wonder of You, Always On My Mind, Burning Love, It’s Now or Never, In The Ghetto, Can’t Help Falling In Love, Moody Blue. You can vote for Elvis till Saturday 4 August 2012 on 702 Talk Radio.

Thanks a stack for every vote, Elvis did the best ever in this poll: For the first time he reached the Top 5 with An American Trilogy at #4. Rest assured this was a once off request and we appreciate all the help we could get.
