Lord almighty, I feel my temperature risin’! Lately, we here at Filthy Dreams have come down with a little fever…a feverish fanatical and maniacal obsession with Elvis. Well, dear Filthy Dreams readers, he IS the King! Praise his name! Elvis in the Highest!
So in order to finally put our Elvis obsession into a playlist form, we created our Filthy Dreams’ Hunka Hunka Burnin’ Elvis Playlist to spark your own unsettling Elvis fixation with almost 4 hours of Elvis-spiration. We start the playlist with Elvis’ gospel tune “How Great Thou Art.” Now, we know he was talking about another god but we can’t help but loudly belt the song in reverence to Him–Elvis. Whether dewy fresh-faced young Elvis or sweaty fat Elvis, we are absolute fans.
Just to prove we aren’t the only ones lost in Elvis-insanity, here’s a quote from one of our other top filth elders on his own Elvis devotion:
“Elvis is my favorite singer. Well, he’s actually not my favorite singer. He’s my favorite performer…” Nick Cave, 1985
Now who could argue with that?
