Elvis Presley Earns Highest-Charting Billboard Hot 100 Hit Since 1978 as ‘Blue Christmas’ Jingles In at No. 40

Elvis Presley appears in the Billboard Hot 100‘s top 40 for the first time since 1978, as his classic carol “Blue Christmas” debuts at last, at No. 40 on the chart dated Jan. 5. Powered by streaming, it zooms 48-32 on the Streaming Songs chart, up 61 percent to 21.3 million U.S. streams in the Dec. 21-27 tracking week, according to Nielsen Music. It also drew 9.6 million in airplay audience (in the week ending Dec. 30).

Presley had last ranked in the Hot 100’s top 40 on the chart dated Jan. 14, 1978, when “My Way” placed at No. 35 after reaching No. 22 in December 1977; the King of Rock and Roll died Aug. 16, 1977.

“Christmas,” recorded and first released by Presley in 1957, arrives as his 81st top 40 Hot 100 hit, tying Lil Wayne for the second-best total in the chart’s history (with Presley’s career predating the survey’s 1958 inception). Drake leads with 94 top 40 hits.

Presley adds his 109th Hot 100 entry overall and first since “Rubberneckin’,” which reached No. 94 in 2003.

I have never read this Elvis quote before so I can’t document that he really did say this…but it rings true to me so I am going to share it below.

What Elvis blurted out tells us about America today

By Kevin J. Banet

March 2, 2014


Spotlights and smoke. Glitter and glamor. Screaming girls and celebrity status.

Even the name “rock star” is a compliment for friends we admire.

But the glamor and fame of a star like Elvis Presley wasn’t enough to give him peace in his heart. When asked in an interview why he always seemed so happy and joyous, he blurted out, “Because I have to in order to make a living. Inside I’m as lonely as hell.

<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>

I have enjoyed this account from Elvis’ last concert in Memphis a few times.  Came across it again just now and could not resist sharing it once more.

The Commercial Appeal

Elvis Presley performs what would be his last Memphis concert July 5, 1976, before a crowd of 12,000 at the Mid-South Coliseum. Twenty-two years earlier to the day, Elvis recorded ‘That’s All Right’ at Sam Phillips’ little studio at 706 Union. Introducing the song, he said: ‘I’ve had some people say – well, you can’t do that song anymore – well, you, by God, just watch me.
Memphis music history Looking back on 50 years of memorable moments

Memphis music: Looking back on 50 years of memorable moments

Memphis is a city so rich in musical history and legacy that it’s possible to pick any year, month or day on the calendar and find a moment of major import. Here, at the start of 2019, we thought it worth looking back over the last 50 years, at some stories, records and moments that are worth remembering and celebrating. 

50 Years Ago: Elvis, Chips and the Memphis Boys  

In early 1969, with his movie commitments over and the famed “’68 Comeback Special” behind him, Elvis Presley was ready to get back to serious recording. As it happened, the hottest band, producer and studio in the world were right in Presley’s backyard. 

Over the years, producer Lincoln “Chips” Moman and his American Sound Studio — located on Thomas Street in North Memphis — had grown into a monster. Moman had recruited a crack unit of players from the house bands at Hi Records and Phillips Records to form the American Studio group, known as “The Memphis Boys”: guitarist Reggie Young, drummer Gene Chrisman, pianist Bobby Wood, organist Bobby Emmons and bassists Mike Leech and Tommy Cogbill.

The lineup, mostly with Moman behind the board, would become a hit-making machine in the latter half of the ’60s, working up a series of chart smashes for artists like the Box Tops (“The Letter”), Dusty Springfield (“Son of a Preacher Man”), Neil Diamond (“Sweet Caroline”), B.J. Thomas (“Hooked on a Feeling”) and Bobby Womack (“Fly Me To The Moon”).

Given the firm grip of Elvis’ manager, Col. Tom Parker, his label RCA and song pluggers at Hill and Range Music Publishers, Moman was battling myriad outside forces in his effort to return Presley to musical glory. The sessions, which took place in January and February 1969, began with a bit of turbulence, as Moman was forced to take charge, clearing the studio of Presley’s pals and business associates, and setting the tone for the record he wanted to make. 

“There was a big entourage and there were these publishers in town and they were pushing the kind of songs that Elvis had been cutting, and I wanted to change that,” Moman told The Commercial Appeal in 2009. “See, we all liked Elvis, but we all liked Elvis in the old days. And so, we were really excited about cutting him because we thought that we could do something real special.” 

For Moman — who died in 2016 — the secret of the sessions was finding the right material for Presley. A gifted songwriter himself, Moman always had an ear out for the next hit tune.

“People were sending me songs all the time,” Moman recalled. “People who write songs, they knew I would listen. I always stayed in touch with a lot of songwriters and I would constantly be calling them and asking them for new things.”

Among those who provided songs for the Presley sessions were young writers like Mac Davis (“In the Ghetto”), Mark James (“Suspicious Minds”) and Eddie Rabbitt (“Kentucky Rain”). 

Combining the fresh material with a mix of old country, R&B and rock favorites, Presley was able to showcase his range and interpretive gifts.

“He came in there and he was on fire, man. He really was,” Moman said. “He was excited about this session. I think he liked the strangeness of it, ’cause it was so different from his sessions that he’d been doing.” 

The collaboration between Elvis, Moman and the Memphis Boys would result in Presley’s return to the charts, as “Suspicious Minds” reached  No. 1, and the resulting album, “From Elvis in Memphis”, would become a gold-selling global smash hit.

Elvis’ 1969 sessions in Memphis confirmed the King’s musical resurgence, which continued with his return to full-time live performing later that year.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ELVIS/JESSE

❤️😍🎼🎵🎶

Image may contain: text

<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>

I thank my longest and closest friend, M. J., for the following beautiful tribute which she has written about Jesse to honor his birthday and the anniversary of the year from which his 42nd year of life began..,since retiring from the public image as Elvis.  My heartfelt thanks to M. J. for this wonderful work. 

If Not The Man, Then Who?

42 years ago, January 8th, 1977, a man celebrated his 42nd birthday.  He never thought of himself as better than his fellowman, never thought that he had done anything extraordinary with the life that God had given to him.  He had never built skyscrapers, tall buildings.  He had never given medical care as doctor, holding a person’s heart in his hands during surgery, or treating a child for the common cold.  He had never led soldiers into battle.  He had never spoke greatly, as a wise statesman, guiding his fellowman, his country, into an unknown future.

What he had done though was to lead a succession of peoples the world over, to lead them daily as they marched through their individual lives, through the constraints of life and time, through good times and bad.  He led them with a song, a smile, a kind word.  He saw fit to share his God given talents, his voice, his art be it as a singer, actor, entertainer, with us… a world that was hungry for a new voice, a new face that would lead not one, but generations to come.  Without doubt, God was pleased with this man, this creation of His hands.

That same year, 1977, the man died.  The voice was stilled.  The joy that was derived from hearing him sing, watching as he held an audience of one or tens of thousands in the palm of his hand, was gone forever.  The physical body, the beauty of the man was lost.  We thought…

Soon enough, we began to hear rumors that the man was indeed still alive.  Still walking this mortal plain.  Still breathing oxygen.  But how?  In what manner of way?  Yes, rumor be damned, it soon became fact that the talk was in fact based on definite knowledge.  The mortal, physical body of the man was still a living, breathing entity.  He saw, he breathed, he spoke, he heard, he touched.  And yet, he was no longer the image that he had shown the world.  No longer the visual representation that we came to know.  He was now reborn, paying homage to his stillborn brother, a twin babe, that never had the chance to live, to breath, to be.  This fact came to knowledge by photos, by writings from his own hand, by recordings of his own voice…

Those that believe the reality of this number but a handful.  Thru years, believers have remained staunch in their belief.  They have remained faithful in their trust in the man.  We have been lambasted soundly and severely, the man’s friend, voice and sister, Linda Hood Sigmon, on the receiving end of the most cruel and hateful scorn by the vast majority.  With all this being said, one question does come to mind.  Through all these many years, if not the man, then who?  Who is this supposed transgressor who has stolen a life, an identity?  Who is this who has insidiously taken on the role of someone long thought dead?  No my friend, this is in fact the same man, the man who had left a life behind, a life of loneliness, a life of hurt.

As we celebrate once again this year, the birthday of this man, we remember the man, the image that once was.  We smile with fondness at thoughts of “a shaky leg”, a smile shy and yet so sincere, a voice so soft or so powerful that it brings tears to the eyes of the listener as that voice touches the heart, the soul.  We praise God once again for blessing this man with another year of life, of us still sharing this world with him.  And we thank both the man, for sharing his truth, his life then and now, with us… and we thank Linda for taking on the slings and arrows of hate filled folks as she shares his truth, his life with us. We know we are so richly blessed, for we know that that August 16th could of been so vastly real.  We thank God for showing the man a way out, a way to live an other’s life.  We thank God for allowing us to be in on the truth, as we know without doubt who that man once was, and in part, still is…

Students learn about Elvis Presley

By Andrew Samet | 

 

MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) – Fourth grade students at one local school district are learning about the King of Rock and Roll this week.

What would have been Elvis’s 84th birthday was celebrated on January 8 and fourth graders throughout the Meridian Public School District were learning about him yesterday and today. Topics included his contributions to US culture and how he changed music culture in America by mixing white gospel, black gospel, blues, and country.

“It opens up their eyes I think to possibilities,” says Carla Falkner, a speaker with the MS Humanities Council. “One of the things we talked about today was being able to express yourselves through music, and whether it’s music or art or writing, it’s a valuable tool for children to learn how to express themselves, and express their emotions.”

The Elvis presentation is part of a collaborative effort called “Mississippi to THE MAX” by the Mississippi Arts and Entertainment Experience, Any Given Child, the Mississippi Humanities Council, and the East Mississippi Community Foundation.

“Gaining an appreciation of your culture and seeing how rich Mississippi culture is, helps [the students] to appreciate the state.”

We are both growing tired of winter and cold weather.  We always look forward to spring.

Jesse said he felt sure that I would be pulling for the Patriots in the Super Bowl and I agreed that I would.  I don’t know much about football nor the teams, but I do like the Patriots because they have the “Flying Elvis” as their logo.  I love watching them just to see that beautiful logo on their helmets.

MONDAY, JANUARY 28, 2019

I have been intending to post this article since before my eye problem became a hindrance.  My vision is no better, but I have decided to work through it to post this new article.  This is something I am very happy to share.

You may recall that Jesse sent the little Lone Ranger book from his childhood to Tom and me a few years ago.  He wanted us to read it to see if we saw what he saw. The most significant thing which we noticed was that it was printed in 1935 which was the year of Elvis/Jesse’s birth.

Tom enjoys watching old westerns on TV very much and during one of my recent phone conversations with Jesse this came up in conversation.  Jesse said that he enjoys that also.

Shortly after that conversation, we had the TV on when an episode of the Lone Ranger came on and during the opening introduction, the narrator said something about the Lone Ranger’s empty grave.  Of course, this immediately grabbed our attention.  So, I did some research into the origin of the Lone Ranger and found that he did fake his death and left behind an empty grave so that it would be believed that he had died.  He had Tonto create a mask for him from his brother’s vest…his brother had been killed in the attack which killed 6 other rangers and left only the Lone Ranger alive.  He vowed to wear the mask to hide his identity so that no one would ever know that he was still alive and to devote his life to his work in the old west of helping and protecting others.

 

I haven’t brought this topic up to Jesse yet so I don’t know any more than the above. But, I believe this is what he wanted us to learn about the Lone Ranger and the significance of his giving this book to us.

The correlation between Elvis and the Lone Ranger is easy to recognize now that I know the background of the Lone Ranger.  The faked death, the empty grave, even the mask of the Lone Ranger and the mask of Orion the singer.  Jesse confirmed to me that I am correct that some of the Orion songs are really sung by him.

Below are the photos of the book which Jesse gave to us:

Elvis Jesse Lone Ranger back of book

Elvis Jesse Lone Ranger book publication date 1935

Elvis's childhood handwriting in the Lone Ranger book

Elvis signatures 1948 library card and The Lone Ranger book in early 1940s

The above shows Elvis’ signature in a library card in 1948.  Of course, he was apx. 13 years old when he signed the library card and his writing had improved greatly from his early child hood writing in the book…but even so, one can see the similarities.

We cannot thank Jesse enough for trusting us with this precious gift from his child hood.  We treasure it just as we do everything he has ever given us.

Below is a small excerpt in which the origin of the Lone Ranger is given:

The Lone Ranger: Only you, Tonto, know I’m alive. To the world, I’ll buried here beside my brother and my friends… forever.
Tonto: You are alone now. Last man. You are lone ranger.
The Lone Ranger: Yes, Tonto, I am… the Lone Ranger.
From The Lone Ranger (TV, 1949–1957)

The Lone Ranger, real name John Reid, is an American fictional character from many forms of media, including radio shows, TV shows, comic books, and movies. He first appeared in January 31, 1933, in a radio show on WXYZ, a radio station serving Detroit, Michigan.

History

John Reid was a Texas Ranger when he and five other men rode into a canyon in search of a nefarious bandit gang. However, they were betrayed and ambushed, and Reid was the only survivor, having been rescued from near-death by the Native American Tonto. Donning a black mask made from his brother’s vest, Reid faked his death to throw off the bandits and began to serve justice from outside the law.

And now, below is the video of Episode 1

Published on Apr 14, 2011
The Lone Ranger Season 1 Episode 1 Enter The Lone Ranger Part 2 Season 1, Episode 1 — Aired: 9/15/1949 Enter the Lone Ranger Six Texas Rangers, led by Captain Dan Reid, are ambushed in a canyon by the outlaw, Butch Cavendish and his gang. One ranger, Reid’s brother John, survives the attack. He is found and nursed back to health by an old friend from his childhood, an indian scout named Tonto. The younger Reid fashions a mask from his slain brother’s vest, and becomes the Lone Ranger.

Also, remember that Jesse had wanted to do police work after he retired from being Elvis.  However, he was recognized on a drug bust and all of his police work came to a halt.

Here is one of his letters regarding this.  These are copies from my own copy of the rough draft of the book.

My thanks to Pamela for bringing this to my attention.  The artist certainly did a beautiful job of capturing Elvis in this piece of work.
