ELVIS PRESLEY : HARBOR LIGHTS [1954]

Ξεκινάμε σήμερα και θα συνεχίσουμε αύριο, Θεού θέλοντος, ένα αφιέρωμα σε έναν ακόμα καλλιτέχνη που έχει γενέθλια. Είναι ο …Elvis Presley, γεννημένος σαν σήμερα, 8 Ιανουαρίου 1935 στο Τούπελο του Μισισίπι.
Το
“Harbor Lights” [Hugh Williams, Northern Irish] ήταν η πρώτη επαγγελματική του ηχογράφηση για την Sun Records, το 1954.

Beginning today, we’ ll continue tomorrow, God willing, a tribute to another artist whose birthday is today. It’s
…Elvis Presley, born on this date, 8 January, 1935 in Tupelo, Mississippi.
“Harbor Lights” [Hugh Williams, Northern Irish
] was his first ever professional recording for Sun Records, in 1954.

I saw the harbor lights
They only told me we were parting
Those same old harbor lights
That once brought you to me.
I watched the harbor lights
How could I help it?
Tears were starting.
Good-bye to golden nights
Beside the silvery seas.
I long to hold you dear,
And kiss you just once more.
But you were on the ship,
And I was on the shore.
Now I know lonely nights
For all the while my heart keeps praying
That someday harbor lights
Will bring you back to me.

    Wait a minute–! I thought you and Elvis were the same person!!– (and I must say you’re very well preserved, my dear fellow!!) Well, thanks to the news media and their Big Tech allies, 2021 has been pretty depressing so far. But no matter– we grease up our hair, hitch up our pants, and fight on!! Happy New Year, and keep rockin’!! 😊

      I’m afraid “depressing” is an overstatement, my friend, in light of the latest developments. These people are non-human, I’m starting to think.
      Anyway, like you said, ain’t gonna give up the fight.
      Your post inspired my Elvis podcast! hope you enjoy it. Happy new year!!!
