Happy Birthday, Elvis!

Suddenly feeling the urge to slick your hair into a pompadour, gyrate your pelvis, break out your favorite Bedazzled jumpsuit and fry up a peanut butter and banana sandwich? Don’t panic.

If you’re unable to make a pilgrimage to Graceland, you can still say, “Thank you, thank you very much” to everything Elvis gave the world by checking out a few of his classic performances. Elvis may have permanently left the building in 1977, but he’s never left our hearts (or our iPods)...
