On January 8th all the karmic realignment is complete. Follow the guiding star and praise the Heavens, for it is the day of his birth, the King of Kings, ELVIS AARON PRESLEY.

ELVIS was the first rock symbol of teenage rebellion, baby the Hunka Hunka visual and aural embodiment of sex. Although he was beset on all sides by the squares who now believed that popular music "has reached its lowest depths in the 'grunt and groin' antics of one Elvis Presley. His actions and motions were called "a strip-tease with clothes on" or "sexual self-gratification on stage." They were compared with "masturbation or riding a microphone." Some saw the singer as a sexual pervert, and psychologists feared that teenaged girls and boys could easily be "aroused to sexual indulgence and perversion by certain types of motions and hysteria—the type that was exhibited at the Presley show.ELVIS maintained in a pure true fine homily that there was nothing vulgar about his stage act, saying: "Some people tap their feet, some people snap their fingers, and some people sway back and forth. I just sorta do ‘em all together, I guess." Amen, Brother, Amen.
Even big squares like Frank Sinatra did some dumping: "His kind of music is deplorable, a rancid smelling aphrodisiac. It fosters almost totally negative and destructive reactions in young people."
But of course, only sour grapes, The Chairman of The Board would soon be crying in his Pasta Fazul as he was out charted by The King. Cuckoo- catchoo, baby, send in the clowns.

So, take a moment in your busy lives to pay tribute, eat a corndog, some deep fried Twinkie and valium, whatever it takes, but c'mon everybody, at least get loose and shake some action. Need some help, just follow the bouncing Ann Margaret, Amen to that brothers and sisters, Amen to that.
