Happy Birthday, Elvis!

Today (well, yesterday now) is what would be Elvis Presley's 75th birthday.  I never came to appreciate the fuller scope of Elvis' music until late in college, but I've consistently loved "Can't Help Falling In Love." In what may be one of my last contributions to NPR Music for a while, I wrote a little blurb about my favorite Elvis song as part of NPR Music's "Songs We Love" series. Remember my write-up about Rick Ross' "Hustlin'"?  If hip-hop wasn't your style, please check this one out. The NPR Picture Show blog also has a very cool slideshow of Elvis as we tend to remember him -- in his hunky 20s.  Check out photos by Alfred Wertheimer of Elvis at 21.
