Fantasia chosen as an American Idol is a big joke - she looks like Chris Rock in rags. The title should have gone to that Hawaiian girl instead. Elvis Presley The King
He Will Always Be The King No Matter What.

No one will know who fantasia is in 5 years, when Elvis will even be bigger then that he is now. "She is another one of those American Idol spin-offs. They all get their 15 minutes of fame...

Wether Fantasia will still be able to hitting the No1 spot in 50 years is another thing entirely.

It is of course great that Elvis is # 1 . But too bad it didnt last long. Next week, American Idol winner Fantasia is the new # 1 . Her single is on track to sell between 150,000 copies or more in its first week. Quite a bit more than the 5847 copies that our man has sold. Still, good job Elvis.

I remember when I was In high school In early 80's and everybody was making fun of me because I was an Elvis Fan. Saying things like: "I'm glad he'll never have a hit again".....!But somehow I knew he would!! These passed couple of years has been so good!! How sweet the revenge Is! Elvis Is King and Elvis Is for EVERYONE!!

Well, in Canada, lets shake things up a bit. It's the 50th anniv, so let all know. E-mail the head of BMG Canada marketing Dept. Elvis will succeed when politics fail, so imagine what will happen if we can ignite a major marketing campaign... Let's make Elvis' Dream come true. The "Sun will rise again".

I must say first of all that i am in complete agreement with TONYP and also that the great 'ELVIS' has done this feat on his name alone, at least in CANADA because there has not been any promotion on his records or dvd's here at all, none whatsoever. this truly shows not only how great ELVIS is, but his fans also. we should all be proud.

Well folks, I don´t have words to express the happiness I´m feeling. I´m really happy and this single climbed for the first place too fast. I would like to imagine the other artists today what they think about losing the top of the charts for a 50 years old single.. This Is Elvis on the place where he deserves to be. So That´s All Right..

Picked up my copy of Elvis At Sun CD and now with the single That's All Right, I can honestly say with certain songs such as Blue Moon of Kentucky, Good Rockin' Tonight and I Don't Care If The Sun Don't Shine, you can really here a big, big difference as to the quality of sound and keep in mind, I have all these songs from past CD's in duplicate. This is the one to get. Elvis' rythmn guitar is heard like never before-clear and distinct. Unfortunately, some sound the same (probably because they werre made from actual records), but don't let that hold you back. Buy 'em both;the single CD and the actual Elvis At Sun. It's a mandatory addition0.

Hopefully if enough radio stations pick up on the Global Moment In Time, "That's All Right" should get more airplay.. wouldn't it be awesome if today's teens realized what a great song this is and made it a hit!? Anyway, it's great and exciting news.

What a fantastic achievement - and not a remix either :-)
The only downside is that it won't register anything like as high on the Hot 100, as that's based in large part of airplay. The joke is that the public places more importance on the Hot 100 than it does on the sales chart. Why?? That aside, it's great news. Long Live The King!

Ain't it great a performance got #1 50 years after it was first released??? Elvis is alive, man! Alberto

Is This True?? That would be historical, if a single that's 50 years old, reach the number one possion. I can't believe it! GREAT NEWS
CD King (profilecontact) wrote on Jun 24, 2004report abuse
ELVIS PRESLEY's That's Alright Mama definately deserves the Number One position. 50 Years On, HE is still The True KING OF MUSIC And He Will Alway Remain The King -
What an Achievement That Will Be if ELVIS reach NUMBER ONE again!
