Love Me Tender
I’d never seen anything like it—it was long before YouTube videos and Disco Night Clubs. Long before Rock Concerts—and all those Rock ‘n’ Roll Bands.
Before Patrick Swayze—in “Dirty Dancing.” I sank into my seat in the Granada Theater—feeling the same exquisite Ecstasy as the adoring Mob of Elvis Fans.
It was like Overnight—suddenly I turned into a Swooning Elvis Presley Scream Queen!!! Suddenly finding myself—a Delirious Devotee to Elvis the Pelvis flaunting it up there on the Silver Screen.
I couldn’t help it—I fell in love with Elvis Presley just like everybody else in the Audience. I felt my mousy little Closet Door—suddenly become unhinged!!! Swinging Open—like the swinging doors to Miss Kitty’s Saloon in “Gunsmoke.”
Everything lined up—like a row of Slinky Dominos. And down I went on my knees—taking a long Detour that surely would end up my gay Dénouement!!!
