Elvis: Missed, but hardly forgotten

Posted on

9657__elvis_lToday marks the 28th anniversary of Elvis’ disappearance from the terrestrial plane (and the start of his unofficial tour of 7-11s nationwide), yet his legacy lives on via endless pop-culture references. What’s your favorite tribute to The King? The sky-diving Elvises of Honeymoon in Vegas? Patty Loveless’s country smash ”I Try to Think About Elvis”?

My personal (and obscure) pick is Cher’s commercially overlooked video for ”Walking in Memphis.” With her finely tuned sense of camp and copious charisma, is there a more fitting artist to pay tribute to (or impersonate) Elvis?
