Startin' Tonight

Elvis Presley Lyrics Words & Music by L. Rosenblatt / V. Williams Elvis Presley Lyrics

Michigan State, MTI
Harvard University
Vassar, Wellesley and Brown
Shakin' up this here town tonight
Startin' tonight
Have a ball do it all startin' tonight

Grab your partner by the hand,
Spread a blanket on the sand
Three a.m. go for a swim
Clothes and all jump right in
Tonight, startin' tonight
Let out the stops, call the cops, it's all right

'Course when the cops have come and gone
You'll just keep carrying on
Don't you worry if you land in jail
We'll forward your mail if you can't make bail
Tonight, startin' tonight
Have a ball do it all startin' tonight
Anything goes, everything goes, startin' tonight
Startin' tonight.

Recorded: 1964/06/12, first released on Girl Happy

Elvis Presleys Movies From the movie Girl Happy

March 6, Kissin' Cousins opens nationally. One of the poorest quality films of his career, it still quickly hits number eleven at the box office, then quickly falls, and the album goes top ten.

May 17, Viva Las Vegas opens nationally and goes to number eight at the box office

It's one of the better Elvis movies of this period, and the songs are better as well.

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.

This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.

The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
