Elvis Lives

by | 9th, May 2003

‘THERE is sensation aplenty in Hello!ville as it is reported on the magazine’s front page that Elvis is alive.

‘Daddy’s shadow is awful big…’

To give full throat to the magazine’s headline story, the joyous news reads: ‘Lisa Marie Presley steps out of her father’s shadow.’

To cast a shadow, we can deduce that The Pelvis is a) alive; b) a ghost; or c) lying in state in Lisa’s front room, picked in burger fat and cheese slices.

Whichever it is, given the girth of the singer when he ‘died’ all those years ago, Lisa Marie has done well to battle free of his mighty shadow.

And now breathing the rich oxygen of publicity, Lisa Marie wants to sign about it. And you can hear her do just that on her debut album, To Whom It may Concern.

‘You want to know who I am and what I am,’ says the scion of the Presley clan. ‘It’s in here.’ One imagines she taps the case of her CD as she says this.

‘This is how either crazy I am, deranged or stupid or whatever you want to call it.’ Whatever you call it, do not call it music or talent.

Although the duet with an unnamed man with a familiar voice is a pleasant enough tune…
