Elvis by the Presleys

 

 

Amazon.com Review
Think of Elvis by the Presleys as the ultimate souvenir guide from your tour of Graceland. The 256 pages are packed with family photos, reminisces, and still-life photography of Elvis's possessions. The book is also a companion volume to the multimdedia event that brings the personal side of Elvis to the masses from the recollections of just six family members: wife Priscilla; daughter Lisa Marie; cousin Patsy; along with Priscilla's mom, dad, and sister. Many of the words written here were not in the TV show but one assumes what will make this a keeper are the photos. Along with candid shots, there are stills of the home movies seen on the CBS special (and subsequent--and expanded--DVD), and the still life shots by Henry Leutwyler get your mind racing. Here one can dwell on Elvis's guitar and think of all the music that came out of it. You can spy his phonograph with the record that was on it when he died, his wallet, an autographed Bible, his first contract, a hand-drawn football play, even his FBI badge along with pristine views inside Graceland. Some shots seem like filler (a boot, "with the original mud," Lisa Marie's crayons), but the overall impression is you are viewing pieces from the Museum of Cool, circa 1970. Several of Pricilla's passages and some of the images allude to Elvis's dark side: the massive reference book on pills and three guns are shown (plus the TV Elvis shot) looking like items from a murder investigation. Ultimately, do we really learn anything new about Elvis? Perhaps not, but there are several segments where Priscilla (the main voice) draws us in with her emotional recollections. The book (and program) is never better than telling the courtship in Germany when a homesick solider found an older-than-her-age 9th grader. Elvis by the Presleys does not try to be compressive; it succeeds as a warmer, more heartfelt tribute to The King. --Doug Thomas

From Booklist
Nearly 30 years after his death, America just can't get enough of Elvis, and to feed that hunger, some of the King's surviving family members present a big, colorful celebration of all things E. Priscilla Beaulieu Presley, abetted by daughter Lisa Marie, mother and father Ann and Paul Beaulieu, sister Michelle Beaulieu Hovey, and "Elvis' double first cousin" Patsy Presley Geranen, presents cozy reminiscences--"Elvis was sentimental, and Christmas brought out his sentiments in force"--and tons of photos, including even a reproduction of one of youthful Elvis' favorite books as marked up by him. Picture books about Elvis are hardly new, nor are collections of the memories of those nearest to him, but this book offers some offbeat stuff that should be new to most fans, like the two-page spread of an old mailbox with "3764 Hwy. 51" hand scrawled on the side, a full-page picture of what was apparently Presley's favorite plastic comb, and the selection of pictures of the King's favorite toys, such as a tricycle and a snub-nosed revolver. Sure, there's nary a disparaging word to be found here--"The hits my father cut like 'In the Ghetto' and 'Suspicious Minds' are great," reports Lisa Marie with admirable restraint--but the down-home, funky charm and honest (not to mention salable) sentiment on view are well worth a look. Good, clean fun; fry up a banana sandwich, and enjoy. Mike Tribby

Now What (2005)

Paroles I'll Figure It Out

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: I'll Figure It Out

Boat rocking
Trouble maker
Non conforming shit starter
With the rebel DNA pirate spirit
Headache

It took me all my life
To finally figure out
That I'm not in the mood
To be anything like you
And maybe it's alright
And maybe not
I'll conduct my choir
I'll figure it out

Truth seeker
Big bullshit detector
The point is made but not well recieved
Plastic flowers whatever
Behave

It took me all my life
To finally figure out
That I'm not in the mood
To be anything like you
And maybe it's alright
And maybe not
I'll conduct my choir
I'll figure it out

And I, you know I tell the truth
Even if you wanna shut your mind
And I'm so alive
I'll just stick with my own kind

It took me all my life
To finally figure out
That I'm not in the mood
To be anything like you
And maybe it's alright
And maybe not
I'll conduct my choir
I'll figure it out
I'll figure it out

I'll figure it out

Paroles Turbulence

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: Turbulence

Imagine that I can't be comforted at all
In pieces I went from crawling into a ball
Evidence, it's in my breathing every day
Less and less and less

Hey you - you wore me out
There was nothing left for anybody else
Listen you, you're the last little shit that anyone expected
Could put me through this
Yeah it's true

Turbulence, auto pilot to control
Down and down and down
And if he's there then I'll take my order to go
He shouldn't see, He shouldn't know

Hey you - you wore me out
There was nothing left for anybody else
And you, you're the last little shit that anyone expected
Could put me through this
Yeah fucker it's true

And over there in the corner of the room
Sat little Jack Horner in his gloom
Oh how you like it there
Na na na na na

Hey you- you slithered around while you ripped every vein out
And you - your once so charming self inflicted tortured act
It's a loser and a poser's tool

Hey you - you wore me out
There was nothing left for anybody else
And you, you're the last little shit that anyone expected
Could put me through this
Yeah fucker it's true

Imagine that
Imagine that

Paroles Thanks

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: Thanks

One day well on one tombstone
All our names should go
We shared a life
The beauty and the ugliness
Through all we've been and with
The birth of a child

CHORUS
Thanks for throwing me the line when I've lost sight of it
You're the only reason I can exhale
And now, suddenly, oh, when I find that the outcome's just not right
From what I just did
You're the only thing I can breathe through

You're heaven, my sweet friends, a few lines of poetry
It may be laughable, but thanks for laughing with me
Yes, and the next time I wrap myself around a tree
And I know that you'll be there with bells on
Yeah, to pull me off

CHORUS

And you can tell me a story I've heard before
I was such a motherfucker then
And you didn't tell me where to go

CHORUS (x2)

Paroles Shine

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: Shine

(featuring Pink)
Written by Lisa Marie Presley and Linda Perry

Unidentified flying object in space
If I were identified you couldn't make me erase
You never understood me and I'd have to applaud
It's lonely out here alone but I can't be what I'm not

You can be all the writing on the wall
That you want
I'll be the line across it
I'll blow your mind
I'll blow your mind

And all the others can shine
But not like I can shine
You could have set me free
If you'd eased up on the line
It's supposed to be quiet
But it's loud in this sky
I'll take care of the vultures with a glass of wine

You can be all the writing on the wall
That you want
I'll be the line across it
I'll blow your mind
I'll blow your mind

You can be all the writing on the wall
That you want
I'll be the line across it
I'll blow your mind
I'll blow your mind

Paroles Dirty Laundry

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: Dirty Laundry

I make my living off the Evening News
Just give me something-something I can use
People love it when you lose,
They love dirty laundry

Well, I coulda been an actor, but I wound up here
I just have to look good, I don't have to be clear
Come and whisper in my ear
Give us dirty laundry

Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em all around

We got the bubble-headed-bleach-blonde who
comes on at five
She can tell you 'bout the plane crash with a gleam
in her eye
It's interesting when people die-
Give us dirty laundry

Can we film the operation?
Is the heir dead yet?
You know, the boys in the newsroom got a running bet
Get the widow on the set!
We need dirty laundry

Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down

Kick 'em when they're up
Kick 'em when they're down
Kick 'em when they're stiff
Kick 'em all around

Dirty little secrets
Dirty little lies
We got our dirty little fingers in everybody's pie
We love to cut you down to size
We love dirty laundry

We can do "The Innuendo"
We can dance and sing
When it's said and done we haven't told you a thing
We all know that Crap is King
Give us dirty laundry!

Paroles When You Go

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: When You Go

Theres so much to offer so much to throw away
The ever present darker side is making you color blind.
But luckily my blinded one I know you and now what
you've done Not what you've done

You beautiful soul
When you go a feeling that chokes
when you go a feeling that soaks
When you go away Into the unknown
When you go you break my heart
Dont you go cause its chokes it chokes

Given all you are inside a shaft of light
that you can't hide
But an idle mind will dominate and feel all the demons steak
When you walk around a old
street Where you lived and who you were then
You can have it again

Everthings not broke when you goa feeling
that chokes when you go a feeling that soaks
when you go you go away
Into the unknown when you go you break my
heart dont you go cause its chokes it chokes

When you go a feeling that chokes
When you go a feeling that soaks.
When you go you go away, into the unknown
When you go you break my heart
Dont you go cause its chokes it chokes

Its a fever that soaks you go away
Into the unknown Into the unknown

When you go you break
Dont you go yeah cause it chokes it chokes

Paroles Idiot

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: Idiot

Please remember me forever
Believe in me as someone
Who's never gonna wish you well

I'm gonna tell you what I think about you in that unforgivable way I do
You're an idiot
And I hate your guts
I guess I'm about as happy for you as I would be a cockroach in my food
I know it's terrible
I really hate you though

Do you have your fairytale life
Or are you dancing to the white trash [trance]
Oh please remember me
Believe in me as someone
Who's never gonna wish you well

I heard the thing that you hate about me almost everyday, but you still wouldn't leave
I had to [bullsh*t] love
Ooh, I hated your guts
And I heard the opposite of love isn't hate
It's indifference
But I can't relate
It's not good enough
Cuz I hate your guts

Did you sell your mediocre mind
You had to find out why you're better off with broader [lines]

CHORUS
Oh please remember me
Believe in me as someone
Who's never gonna wish you well
Oh please remember me
Believe in me as someone
Who wants you to go to hell

You're in me, you're boring
Oh, did you hear me snoring?
I don't mutilate myself when I talk to you
So tell me how did I hope you could tell that I'm no one's pearl
You can have em, go to hell
You're gonna die on us
They're gonna hate your guts

CHORUS (x2)

Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: High Enough

Can you bring me another
I'm not there yet
Do I seem to remember
How much 'til I forget

Ooh, I can't get high enough, light enough, nice enough
Can you hear me now
'Cuz I'm not doing fine
I'm drowning in my mind again
Oh why... ooh, does earth turn
Takes so much to disappear

Can I, ooh, can I stand up
Help me from this chair
I was the life of the party
Oh, so you tell me

Ooh, I can't get high enough, light enough, nice enough
Can you hear me now
'Cuz I'm not doing fine
I'm drowning in my mind again
Oh, why - ooh, does earth turn
Take so much to disappear

I'm drowning in my mind again

Can you hear me now
'Cuz I'm not doing fine
I'm drowning in my mind again

Paroles Turn To Black

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: Turn To Black

Tell me tell me did you think you'd catch me
Did you think that if you watched me
Id be just like the rest of them
Did you think that you could mold me scold me
Did you think that you could own me, yeah
Did you think that you could put a saddle on me
Show me ride me cloud me warn me you could control me
Tell me did you think Id fit you like a bonnet with a little flower on it
Or a tear inside your sonnet

So much unspoken it will never be heard by you

Can you take it back
Can you make it go away
Wish I never knew this
I did everything you said
It all just turned to black
And I cant do this

Did you like the voodoo that I put now on you
When I slither in my closet, sweat vengeance like a faucet.
Was I the only monkey junkie flunky who turned out to disappoint you
honey
Yeah I am
Did I stop computer porn cause you didn't turn me on
No I didn't
Did I get tired of your **** and give you my ****ing lip, yeah I did

Are my unheard objections invalid to you

Can you take it back
Can you make it go away
Wish I never knew this
I did everything you said
It all just turned to black
And I cant do this

Ill stay on the freeway of the damned souls now
Wish I never knew this
The address that you gave me was too overrated
I cant do this

Tell me tell me did you think you'd catch me
Did you think that if you watched me
Id be just like the rest of them

Can you take it back
Can you make it go away
Wish I never knew this
I did everything you said
It all just turned to black
And I cant do this

Ill stay on the freeway of the damned souls now
Wish I never knew this
The address that you gave me was too overrated
I cant do this

Paroles Raven

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: Raven

And as the raven flies she feels unwelcome
She's fallen out of her tree and caught on a limb of silver lining
Her wings uncertain oh but she's still flying
Yeah little Raven I see you there

Hold your head up now
I won't try and pull your feathers out I promise
Go on dry your eyes
You know that I've forgiven you and I'm sorry
And everything till now
It wasn't that bad really
Beautiful lady

Why don't you fly with me
We'll have a chat and a cup of tea
And a long lost need to see who's really there

And you'll finally be okay with me
And I'll hear your stories
That fill your sad eyes
When you had raven hair

Hold your high up high
I know that I've been ruthless
I've been ruthless

Go on dry your eyes
You know that I've forgiven you and I'm sorry
And everything till now
It wasn't that bad really
Beautiful lady

Go on dry your eyes
Hey you finally see me - hi
And I see you
And everything till now
It wasn't that bad really
Beautiful lady

Go on dry your eyes
You know that I've forgiven you and I'm sorry
And everything till now
It wasn't that bad really
Beautiful lady

Paroles Now What

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: Now What

When I left and I said goodbye
Did you know that I meant it, mmmm, that time?
I guess that I didn't quite realize
What I was saying goodbye to - whoa, just yet
The only asphalt to pave my way - that was you
And damn it if I didn't try to do
Everything that I was supposed to
And now - what do I do now?
Oh, I don't know cuz I'm still leaving
Now - who's gonna save me next time?
Oh, not you - ooh, for the first time
And the road to get to the other side of your rainbow
It wasn't for me - oh, I guess
I couldn't live - not according to your path
I believe, at least
But damn it if I didn't give it a damn good shot
At least to try and be
And what do I do now
Oh, I don't know cuz I'm still leaving
And now - who's gonna save me next time?
No, not you - ooh, for the first time
But somehow I'll be alright
Somehow I'll be alright, ooh
When I left and I said goodbye
Did you know that I meant it that time?
And damn it if I didn't try to do
Everything that I was supposed to
And now - what do I do now?
Oh, I don't know
Oh, I'm leaving
And now, who's gonna save me next time?
Oh, won't be you
Ooh, for the first time
But somehow I'll be alright
Somehow I'll be alright

Paroles S.O.B.

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: S.O.B.

You said I seem so grim and
You said it just wasn't when it fell down on me there
Darling do you forgive me
I went out on a limb
Cause I needed to be

Near the fireflies flying high above me
Then I hit the sky and it fell down on me

You said it wasn't sharp but I cut my finger
You said it just wouldn't burn and I scarred my face

You know I bite my nails my skin and my fingers
And I've heard that's my liver my nerves and my brain
I said I just like to bite on my fuckin fingers
Do you have another intelligent answer for me today

You said it wasn't sharp but I cut my finger
You said it just wouldn't burn and I scarred my face
You said it just wasn't ? when it fell down on me
Well I'm just a son of a bitch no matter what you say

I lost my trust in you
You were dangerous and scary
And you poisoned me with the fruits everyone was intrigued by
And I finally got buried

You said I won't forget and I don't remember and
You said I'm something I'm not and I fell on my face
You said I wouldn't rot but worms are crawling on me
I'm just a son of a bitch no matter what you say
I'm just a son of a bitch no matter what you say

Paroles The Road Between

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: The Road Between

Out on the road between nowhere and hell
I caught a glimpse of my reflection in you
But they can't believe I still want you around

Hung on the line between addiction and ?
I can't believe you said I hurt you again
But I can't afford to let you get away
And I cannot take the darkness when you stay

You're all I see
And it's definitely my fault
You're all I see
But don't come near me at all

How many roads between your world and mine
How many broken doors and how many fights
I changed my furniture to make you go away
I'm still overwhelmed at how much space you take

You're all I see
And it's definitely my fault
You're all I see
But don't come near me at all

And I can't have you right now
And I can't get it right now
And I can't have you right now
And I can't get it right now

You're all I see
And it's definitely my fault
You're all I see
But don't come near me at all
This is definitely my fault

Hung on the line between addiction and ?
I can't believe you said I hurt you again

Paroles Lights Out

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: Lights Out

You were a million miles behind
And I was crying every time I'd leave you
Then I didn't want to see you
I still keep my watch two hours behind

Someone turned the lights out there in Memphis
That's where my family's buried and gone
Last time I was there I noticed a space left
Next to them there in Memphis
In the damn back lawn

I didn't know that I was in the crowd
And the fresh cut grass stopped growing
Everything on my shelf has fallen
I still keep my watch two hours behind

Someone turned the lights out there in Memphis
That's where my family's buried and gone
Last time I was there I noticed a space left
Next to them there in Memphis
In the damn back lawn

Was that bridge I was crossing
Somewhere I stopped walking
I guess I fell off on my own

I heard all the roads they lead to Memphis
Except for the one I'm stumbling down
And I'll be damned if I ever get this little son of a bitch from Memphis
Well it's all there I guess
And I haven't forgot

Paroles Better Beware

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: Better Beware

Dreams of contemplation, a resignation, know what.
Useless indignation, a segregation, plant your seed.
Steamless conversation, what is happening to me.
I'm no longer your erection, or your congregation, I'm your disease.

(Chorus)
You take the sun.
You have your fun but you better beware.
You better beware.
You broke it down.
With that boring sound you gave to me.
That I don't want to hear.

You're in some blind elation, a kind of delusion,
you don't get through to me.
Deliver your equation and still you won't see a change in me.
You want my redemption, you want me to believe that it's all me.
Well, I'm no longer your erection, or your congregation, I'm your disease.

(Chorus)
You take the sun.
You have your fun but you better beware.
You better beware.
You broke it down.
With that boring sound you gave to me.
That I don't want to hear.

Paroles Nobody Noticed It

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: Nobody Noticed It

I heard broken footsteps
Was that you limping
Well I wish I that could have spent just a little bit more time with you...yeah

Tears on my ceiling
Weren't you watching
Well I guess that none of us will ever know what comes after this

You're still lovely
You were lovely then
All that you had to endure
I guess nobody noticed it

I know your resemblence
Um it's out there walkin'
And I wanted you to know that I haven't forgotten

When they try to make you look broken
Not while I'm livin'
But I wanted you to know that I heard what he said when it was rainin'

You're still lovely
You were lovely then
All that you had to endure
I guess nobody noticed it

You made me
I love you
And do you know nothing has changed
Now everyone they notice it
Everyone notices

You're still lovely
You were lovely then
All that you had to endure
I guess nobody noticed it

You made me
I love you
And do you know that nothing has changed
Now everyone they notice it
Everyone notices

Paroles Sinkin' In

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: Sinkin' In

This is a drag that it's too late now.
And I wanted to tell you that I was wrong.
I didn't realize I still hold on to you but I still do.
Was it that I turned everyone against you.
Was it that I didn't defend you.
Was it that I never had your back.
Was it that I was always trying to save you and you never wanted me to.
Or was it that I loved you.
You don't seem to see me sinking in do you.
You're not content in your own head are you.
You just want to kick me once again don't you.
Don't you baby.
I did it again.
I don't stop paying.
You don't look so good to me my friend.
Is it because of me I really left this time.
Did you ever say goodbye.
Was it that I had a crush on your friend.
Was it that I left for another man.
Was it that I didn't know.
That you were in over your head and I didn't see what I had did I.
No, I didn't and uh.

(Chorus)
Was it that everyone would just kiss my ass.
I couldn't see through it and you could.
And now look what's come of us here ten years later.
I jump from one to the other, you're still worrying your mother.
And I almost went under baby.
(Chorus)

Paroles Important

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: Important

Maybe if I liked being alone I could give you your life back and let you go.
Maybe if I got it together again I wouldn't be belligerent and such a princess.
Maybe the reason I'm so needy is because I never had real devotion.
Maybe I criticized your loyalty because it wasn't given to me.

(Chorus)
Do you know who I am.
It's me in here with the doctor and the crowd around me.
They are my chosen family.
I guess I'm important, but what about them standing there they can't get in.
They're smiling at me, I guess they're used to this.

Maybe I'll stop wondering when I'm gonna die.
Maybe then I'll stop holding so hard to my life.
Maybe next time I see my reflection my mind won't be with me.
Maybe my brutal honesty is only because I can get away with it.
Maybe I'll squash you relentlessly because you tried to crush me.

(Chorus)
Please get out of my way I don't like fucking waiting.
You need to bring me my food first I'm not the one you want to starve.
Maybe you think you're my friend.
Maybe one day you'll give a shit about what I am.

(Chorus)
I guess you're not important, but what about you standing there you can't get in.
You're smiling at me I guess you're used to this.
(Chorus)

Paroles So Lovely

Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: So Lovely

You know I did something right.
Something that keeps me alive.
Oh you sweet little babies.
When you came you let me know.
I was finally happy.
You knew me before now didn't you.
God you're so lovely.
Did you come here to help me.
And I know you can't sleep well.
Unless I'm right there next to you.
Oh you take care of mommy too.
You're so quick to defend me aren't you.
God you're so lovely yes you are.
You came here to save me didn't you.
You came here to teach me.
And I'm gonna try to teach you.
Know you're everything to me.
Know you have to learn and try.
Please don't fear to lose me.
You know I have those same fears too.
God you're so lovely yeah you are.
You came here to save me didn't you.
You came here to teach me.
Ooh and I'm gonna try to teach you.
Little man and a lady.
So handsome and pretty.
Sometimes don't listen to your mamma no.
And don't do as I do.

Paroles Indifferent

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: Indifferent

It kind of looks like we won't make it, my friend.
And it looks like you can't take it again, my friend.
And all the pretty roses wilted up and paled themselves away today.
The guillotine of truth has fallen, somehow I'm the one you blame.

(Chorus)
This can't be happening.
Not so fast, I'm so mean.
I can't stay indifferent.
Because I know the outcome.
And I'm the target for the daggers.

That the truth's thrown your way, today.
And the next one maybe she'll be easier.
She'll make it go away, hey.
She's still calling you.
I'm still calling him.
Can we do this.
Here we go again.
The package.
The baggage.

(Chorus)
This can't be happening.
Not so fast, I'm so mean.
I can't stay indifferent.
Because I know the outcome.
This can't be happening.
It started out not so clean.
You chose your path.
Mine's wrong, you can say that

Paroles Gone

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: Gone

Well, what do we have here Daddy.
The lights are quickly changing.
Will I leave your heart along with the phone lines you're erasing.
A spineless ending.
Well, who would have guessed dear daddy.
Turned out to be a coward.
When I turned my back you cut my throat it bled for hours.
Was that your power.

(Chorus)
You, you're the lovely victim again.
You, well your heart is breaking.
You are the only one let down.
Are you really now.
Well, soon here we'll have dear Daddy with the next one on her knees.
And she's gonna call him daddy like the rest of them, like me.
How easy it will be Replacing me.
And what's that I hear now Daddy you're blaming it all on me.
Another she did you wrong and of course you had to leave.
And the yes men will agree.
You gave it everything.

(Chorus)
You with the advisors in your ear.
You did everything right it's clear.
I know I begged you to stay around.
But I'm gone now.

(Bridge)
Well, here's to you my darling leave.
You're stubborn and you're free and of course, right.
I don't respect the way you leave.
You can be no friend to me.
I'll say goodbye.

(Chorus)

(Repeat Chorus)

Paroles To Whom It May Concern

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: To Whom It May Concern

If you can't even stop the symptoms.
Then why in the hell do you drug the children.
The others can make their own decisions.
And with some help from you they become dependant.
You should be sorry 'cause you let them down.
But you become a big part of their lives.
They always trust you but they're dying out.
I've seen the things you do it blows my mind.
There's a doctor on every campus now.
And he's gonna tell you what you're feeling.
Momma wants you to swallow this down.
It's gonna make you sit still and listen.
I'm sorry children you don't have the choice.
Your parents gave you something way back.
When there's nothing wrong with you it's easier.
To give you this then you won't embarrass them.
When there's something wrong take an antidepressant.
You can even choose which kind you want by the latest suicide.
You know you're sorry 'cause you let them down.
But you become a big part of their lives.
They always trust you but they're dying out.
The things you do it blows my fucking mind.

Paroles Excuse Me

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: Excuse Me

(Lisa Marie Presley/Clif Magness)

It's finally winter and I'm so happy
I do better in the cold
I like the friends who don't try to save me
I've been trying that too long

What did I just say can you tell me
Sorry I do that a lot
Did you know I broke up my family
And the guilt is never gone

Mister did you
Say something to me
Were you there this whole time
Please excuse me

You know there's some who really hate me
Hey you know that's a unique dog
You have a nice smile want some candy
Some people say that I have too much

I had a good feeling when I woke up
But I missed it 'cause I was sleeping
Did you know I broke up my family
Oh the guilt it's really killing me

Mister did you
Say something to me
Were you there this whole time
Please excuse me

Mister did you
Say something to me
And were you there that whole time
Excuse me

Mister did you
Say something to me
And were you there that whole time
Well please excuse me
Forgive me

Paroles Savior

Lisa Marie Presley


Artiste: Lisa Marie Presley
Chanson: Savior

(Lisa Marie Presley/Billy Corgan)

Savior, savior
Save me once again
Savior, savior
Save me from myself

You disappear to walk alone I fear
If only to erase the trace of you here

Once again, you have betrayed me
Yes my friend, you drained me
Only then, will you embrace me
Only then, did I call out

Savior, savior
Save me once again
Savior, savior
Save me from myself

I'm the one that always cleaned your wounds
I wiped your brow
And told you were more than what they saw
Sacrificed myself until you knew you could believe

If you were me and breathed the air I breathe
Would you not ask in vain for God to bring you peace

Once again, you will betray me
Yes my friend, you will drain me
Only then, will you embrace me
Once again, I'll call out

Savior, you will betray me
Once again, you'll drain me
Savior, will you embrace me
As my friend and save me

Does your memory stray to a brighter sunny day When I kissed you and called you sweetheart? Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare? Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there? Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again? Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight? I wonder if you're lonesome tonight You know someone said that the world's a stage And each must play a part. Fate had me playing in love you as my sweet heart. Act one was when we met, I loved you at first glance You read your line so cleverly and never missed a cue Then came act two, you seemed to change and you acted strange And why I'll never know. Honey, you lied when you said you loved me And I had no cause to doubt you. But I'd rather go on hearing your lies Than go on living without you. Now the stage is bare and I'm standing there With emptiness all around And if you won't come back to me Then make them bring the curtain down. Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again? Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

GRACELAND

Graceland is a large white-columned mansion and 13.8-acre (56,000 m2) estate that was home to Elvis Presley. It is located at 3734 Elvis Presley Boulevard in Memphis, Tennessee in South Memphis' vast Whitehaven community about twelve miles (19 km) from Downtown and less than four miles (6 km) north of the Mississippi border. It currently serves as a museum. It was opened to the public in 1982, was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on November 7, 1991 and declared a National Historic Landmark on March 27, 2006.

Presley, who died at the estate on August 16, 1977, his parents Gladys and Vernon Presley, and his grandmother, are buried there in what is called the Meditation Gardens.

History

Graceland was originally owned by S. E. Toof, publisher of the Memphis newspaper, the Memphis Daily Appeal. The grounds were named after Toof's daughter, Grace, who would come to inherit the farm. Soon after, the portion of the land designated as Graceland today was given to a niece, Ruth Moore, who, in 1939 together with her husband Dr. Thomas Moore, had the present American "colonial" style mansion built.

Elvis purchased Graceland in early 1957 for approximately $100,000 after vacating an East Memphis house located at 1034 Audubon Drive. He moved because of privacy and security concerns, and the opposition of neighbors to the enthusiastic behavior of the many fans who slowly cruised by his home.[4] Elvis moved into Graceland together with his father Vernon Presley and his mother Gladys. After Gladys died in 1958, and Vernon married Dee Stanley in 1960, the couple lived there for a time. Wife-to-be Priscilla Beaulieu also lived at Graceland for five years before she and Elvis married.[5] After their marriage in Las Vegas on May 1, 1967, Priscilla lived in Graceland five more years until she separated from Elvis in late 1972.

On August 16, 1977, Elvis died in his bathroom at Graceland allegedly of a heart attack. However, there are conflicting reports as to the cause of his death. According to Peter Guralnick, the singer "had thrown up after being stricken, apparently while seated on the toilet. The author adds that "drug use was heavily implicated in this unanticipated death of a middle-aged man with no known history of heart disease...no one ruled out the possibility of anaphylactic shock brought on by the codeine pills he had gotten from his dentist."[6]

[edit] Architecture and modifications

The mansion is constructed of tan limestone and consists of twenty-three rooms, including eight bedrooms and bathrooms. The entrance way contains several Corinthian columns and two large lions perched on both sides of the portico.

After purchasing the property Presley carried out extensive modifications to suit his needs and tastes, including: a fieldstone wall surrounding the grounds, a wrought-iron music styled gate, a swimming pool, a racquetball court, and the famous "Jungle Room" which features an indoor waterfall, among other modifications. In February and October 1976, the Jungle Room was converted into a recording studio, where Presley recorded the bulk of his final two albums, From Elvis Presley Boulevard, Memphis, Tennessee and Moody Blue; these were his final known recordings in a studio setting.[7]

One of Presley's better known modifications was the addition of the Meditation Gardens, where he, his parents Gladys and Vernon, and grandmother are buried. There is also a small stone placed to remember Elvis' twin brother Jesse Garon who died at birth. The Meditation Garden was opened to the public in 1978. Graceland was officially opened to the public on June 7, 1982.

Graceland grew from 10,266 square feet (953.7 m2) when originally bought by Presley to 17,552 square feet (1,630.6 m2) today. Managers of the complex announced a major renovation project that will include a new visitors center, a 500-room convention hotel and high-tech museum displays. The current visitors center, souvenir shops, the 128-room Heartbreak Hotel, and museums will be torn down and replaced with the new facilities. The project will take approximately 3 years to complete.

[edit] Presley at Graceland

According to Mark Crispin Miller, Graceland became for Elvis "the home of the organization that was himself, was tended by a large vague clan of Presleys and deputy Presleys, each squandering the vast gratuities which Elvis used to keep his whole world smiling." The author adds that Presley's father Vernon "had a swimming pool in his bedroom", that there "was a jukebox next to the swimming pool, containing Elvis's favorite records" and that the singer himself "would spend hours in his bedroom, watching his property on a closed-circuit television."[8] Graceland was Lisa Marie Presley's first official home, and residence after her birth on February the 1st 1968 and her childhood home, although her main state of residence was California where she lived with her mother after she divorced Elvis when Lisa was in elementary school. Every year at Christmas time Lisa Marie Presley and all her family go to Graceland to celebrate Christmas together. Lisa Marie Presley often goes back to Graceland for visits. When she turned 25,[9] Lisa Marie inherited the estate. In 2005 she sold 85 percent of it.

According to Brad Olsen, "Some of the rooms at Graceland testify to the brilliance and quirkiness of Elvis Presley. The TV room in the basement is where he often watched three television sets at once, and was within close reach of a wet bar."[10]

Elvis absolutely felt at home in this place. When he would tour, staying in hotels, "the rooms would be remodelled in advance of his arrival, so as to make the same configurations of space as he had at home – the Graceland mansion. His furniture would arrive, and he could unwind after his performances in surroundings which were completely familiar and comforting," the room in question, 'The Jungle Room' being "an example of particularly lurid kitsch."[11]

The Meditation Gardens, designed and built by architect and designer Bernard Grenadier, has been noted as a preferred place of Elvis in the property, where he often went to reflect on any problems or situations that arose during his life.

According to the singer's cousin Billy Smith, Elvis spent the night at Graceland with Smith and his wife Jo many times: "we were all three there talking for hours about everything in the world! Sometimes he would have a bad dream and come looking for me to talk to, and he would actually fall asleep in our bed with us."[12]

There was some discord between Elvis and his stepmother Dee at Graceland, however, and Elaine Dundy said "that Vernon had settled down with Dee where Gladys had once reigned, while Dee herself - when Elvis was away - had taken over the role of mistress of Graceland so thoroughly as to rearrange the furniture and replace the very curtains that Gladys had approved of." This was too much for the singer who still loved his deceased mother. One afternoon, "a van arrived ... and all Dee's household's goods, clothes, 'improvements,' and her own menagerie of pets, were loaded on ... while Vernon, Dee and her three children went by car to a nearby house on Hermitage until they finally settled into a house on Dolan Drive which ran alongside Elvis's estate."[13]

The book Elvis by the Presleys reveals several details concerning the singer's life at Graceland including his obsessions and passions when staying at home.

[edit] Visits to Graceland

In 1957, Presley invited Richard Williams and Buzz Cason to visit the Whitehaven neighborhood of Memphis, where Graceland is located. They went there in Chester Power's '55 chevy "to get a close look at this mansion Elvis had told us about. ... We proceeded to clown around on the front porch, striking our best rock 'n' roll poses and snapping pictures with the little camera. We peeked in the not-yet-curtained windows and got a kick out of the pastel colored walls in the front rooms with shades of bright reds and purples that Elvis most certainly had picked out."[14]

"In the late 50s, Elvis was fond of claiming that the US government had mooted a visit to Graceland by Nikita Khrushchev, 'to see how in America a fellow can start out with nothing and, you know, make good'. Had the old Cold Warrior taken the trip and then lived to see the King's demise, he might have allowed himself a very Soviet laugh at that." (John Harris)[15]

On June 30, 2006, when US President George W. Bush hosted Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi for a tour of the mansion, it became the only residence on American soil other than an Embassy, the White House, or any of the other Presidential retreats to have hosted a joint-visit by a sitting US president and a head of a foreign government.[citation needed] (Koizumi, who served as Prime Minister of Japan from 2001 to 2006, is an avid Elvis Presley fan and even shares Presley's January 8 birthday.)

[edit] Tourist destination

After Elvis Presley's death in 1977, Vernon Presley served as executor of his estate. Upon his death in 1979, he chose Priscilla to serve as the estate executor for Elvis' only child, Lisa Marie who was only 11. Graceland itself cost $500,000 a year in upkeep, and expenses had dwindled Elvis's and Priscilla's daughter Lisa Marie's inheritance to only $1 million. Taxes were due on the property, those and other expenses due came to over $500,000. Faced with having to sell Graceland, Priscilla examined other famous houses/museums, and hired a CEO, Jack Soden from Kansas City, MO to turn Graceland into a moneymaker. Graceland was opened to the public on June 7, 1982. Priscilla's gamble paid off, after only a month of opening Graceland's doors the estate made back all the money it had invested in it. Priscilla Presley became the chairwoman and president of Elvis Presley Enterprises, or EPE, stating at that time she would do so until Lisa Marie reached 21 years of age. The enterprise's fortunes soared and eventually the trust grew to be worth over $100 million.

Elvis's grave at Graceland.

While Graceland was open to tours from 1982, the last person to live in the house was Elvis' aunt Delta, on Elvis' invitation after her husband died. She passed away in 1993.[16]

An annual procession through the estate and past Elvis's grave is held on the anniversary of his death. The largest gathering assembled on the 25th anniversary in 2002. One estimate was of 40,000 people in attendance, despite the heavy rain.

The 20th Anniversary in 1997 had the biggest crowd in Memphis for an Elvis Week. At this time several hundred media groups from around the world were present and the event gained its greatest media publicity as an estimated 50,000 fans visited the city.

The Graceland grounds include a museum containing many Elvis artifacts, like some of his famous Vegas jumpsuits, awards, gold records, the Lisa Marie jetliner, and Elvis's extensive auto collection. Recently Sirius Satellite Radio installed an all-Elvis Presley channel on the grounds. The service's subscribers all over North America can hear Presley's music from Graceland around the clock. Two new attractions have been added, Private Presley and the `68 Special exhibits; these can be found across the street on the plaza. The fieldstone wall that Presley installed is still there, and has several years' worth of graffiti from visitors, who simply refer to it as "the wall"[17].

The Jungle Room, Graceland

Tours of the museums at Graceland are available, though no flash photography or video cameras are allowed inside. There is an audio tour of the Graceland mansion. The upper floor is not open to visitors out of respect for the Presley family and partially to avoid any improper focus on the bathroom which was the site of his death.[citation needed] The upper floor, which also contains Elvis's bedroom, has been untouched since the day Elvis died. Visitors park across the street, boarding shuttle buses to begin the tour of Graceland. Attendants issue headphones, and tourists are individually snapped by a souvenir photographer in front of a painted wall with Graceland's famous music gates. Tour buses drive across Elvis Presley Blvd. through the smallish Music gates. Down the long winding drive the bus stops in front of stone lions that stand watch at the wide red brick front steps. It was behind these lions that over 3500 of Elvis' mourning fans passed by to see his body in its casket. The house is much bigger than expected, photos being of the main part only. A tour guide stands at the closed doors to give a brief history of Graceland starting with the woman (Grace) it was named for and concluding with the fact that Elvis bought Graceland when he was only 22 years old. Finally the door opens to allow entry through the front door where, almost directly overhead, perhaps forever unseen by the public, is where Elvis died, on his bathroom floor.

Upon entering Graceland, the white staircase, filled with reflective mirrors, is directly in front. To the right is the Living Room with the adjoining Music Room, the first room to be presented on the tour. There are guard rails up prohibiting entry to the Living Room and only part of the Music Room can be seen, hidden behind a doorway framed by vivid large peacocks set in stained glass. In this doorway, in front of the stained glass, Elvis' casket was placed for the funeral held in his home. Visible in the Music Room is a black baby grand piano and an old 50's style TV. The Living Room contains a fifteen-foot long white sofa against the wall overlooking Graceland's front yard. To the left is a white fireplace. The painting that was Elvis' last Christmas present from his father, Vernon, hangs in this room. Also displayed are photographs of Elvis' parents Vernon and Gladys, Elvis and Lisa Marie. These rooms are then followed with a walk past the grand staircase to Elvis' parents' room.

In Elvis's parents' bedroom, white is the predominant color. A velvet-looking dark purple bedspread drapes onto the floor at the foot of the queen size bed. The walls, dresser, bed and carpet are bright white, protected from visitors by a guard rail. To the right is the closet, sealed with clear glass showing four or five of dresses Gladys' wore. To the left is a pink full bathroom, almost obscured from sight because of a velvet rope barrier.

Next, the tour takes you into the dining room and the kitchen (which was not open to the public until 1995, as Elvis' aunt Delta used it until her death in 1993)[18] and continues through the basement, where Elvis's media room with its three televisions can be seen. There is also a bar and billiards room. The tour continues upstairs again, through the famous Jungle Room. After the Jungle room, it exits to the backyard, past Lisa Marie's childhood swing set, to a small white building that served as his father's office. Through the office there is a small room containing a scale model of the home he was born in Tupelo, Mississippi. Elvis' shooting range is housed in what used to be an old smokehouse. Down the sloping lawn, past horses grazing behind neat white fences, visitors enter the "Trophy Room". Originally this space was a sidewalk behind the house that Elvis had enclosed to store his many items of appreciation. Just inside is Elvis' famous gold lamé suit from his early years.

The Living Room, Graceland

In the Trophy Room many walls display records, movie posters, old time memorabilia of lipstick and shoes, even a 1950's Elvis doll. Among items there are the three Grammy's Elvis won, Priscilla's wedding dress, Elvis' wedding tuxedo, Lisa Marie's toy chest and baby clothes and the famous hall of Elvis' gold records and awards. The Trophy Room then winds down the halls through a display of his 68 Comeback, featuring his leather suit, his personal copies of his movie scripts, costumes he wore in many of his movies and a few of his trademark jumpsuits. Also in this room are all the awards and distinctions Elvis received and a display of the many canceled checks Elvis wrote to various charities.

Once again outside, the tour moves past his still fully functioning stable of horses. Elvis's Racquetball Court is next, now housing a display of Elvis' sequined "jumpsuits".

The entrance is reminiscent of entering an old country club, expertly built and expensively furnished in dark leather on the numerous bar chairs and sofas. A fully functional bar is on the right. To the left is a sunken sitting area with the ever present stereo system found throughout Graceland. There is also the dark brown upright piano upon which Elvis played for what was to be his last songs , The 1st was Willie Nelson's Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain & the 2nd was The Righteous Brothers "Unchained Melody". Reports conflict about which one was the last song. The sitting area has a floor to ceiling shatter proof window designed to watch the many racquetball games that took place here when Elvis was alive. In the early hours of the morning Elvis died he, his girlfriend Ginger Alden , his first cousin Billy Smith and Billy's wife Jo played a game of racquetball ending the game with the song on the piano before Elvis walked into the main house to wash his hair and go to bed. Today the court has been converted into displays of the majority of Elvis' stage costumes. More costumes are on display across the street in the "Sincerely Elvis" area. Many old vinyl records are hanging in the two story court, including numerous posthumous awards. Big screen TVs are scattered throughout Graceland. In the racquetball court Elvis' movies and recordings of his Las Vegas concerts play continually. Elvis had the swimming pool built after moving to Graceland.

Just past the pool area is the Meditation Garden where Elvis, his mother Gladys, his father Vernon and grandmother Minnie Mae Hood Presley lie buried. A separate building across the street houses a car collection, which includes Elvis' Pink Cadillac and not far away his two planes Lisa Marie (a Convair 880) and Hound Dog II (a Lockheed JetStar) are on display.

[edit] National historic landmark

Graceland was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on November 7, 1991. On March 27, 2006, Gale Norton, United States Secretary of the Interior, designated Graceland a National Historic Landmark—joining the White House, the Alamo, Pearl Harbor Naval Base, Dealey Plaza, and Mount Vernon.[1][3] However, as there are almost 2,500 sites in the United States sharing this designation, the elevation, according to John Harris, "falls slightly short", as such legendary sites also include "the Frederick Bagg Bonanza Farm in North Dakota and Kentucky's Louisville Water Company Pumping Station."[15]

[edit] Recent developments

In early August 2005, Lisa Marie Presley sold 85% of the business side of her father's estate. She kept the Graceland property itself, as well as the bulk of the possessions found therein, and she turned over the management of Graceland to CKX, Inc., an entertainment company that also owns 19 Entertainment, creator of the American Idol TV show.

In February 2006, CKX Chairman Bob Sillerman announced plans to turn Graceland into an international tourist destination on a par with the Disney or Universal theme parks, sprucing up the area mansion and doubling possibly tripling the 600,000 annual visitors to around 2 million a year. Sillerman’s goal is to enhance the "total fan experience" at Graceland to compel visitors to spend more time and money. The company is working with the Bob Weis, the recently named new CEO of Disney Imagineering based in Orlando, Florida, to improve the tourist area around Graceland, which is located in an economically-depressed area of Memphis, while keeping intact the historic home. Graceland officials invision a 3 mile strip of Elvis Presley Boulevard transformed into a beautiful entertainment district from East Brooks RD all the way down to East Shelby Drive. EPE has bought up over 120 acres of land both commercial and residential around the mansion both north and south, everything from apartment complexes, car dealership, a souvenir shop and even some houses in the area to make way for the expansion.

Sillerman, who has been speaking with investors and developers, plans to spend between $250 million to $500 million on redeveloping the area surrounding Graceland. Among his plans are a new luxury hotel of more than 500 rooms and a convention center, an amphitheater for live concerts, restaurants and retail, plus a new 80,000 square foot visitor's center and museum adjacent to the Graceland mansion. 2009 has been set as the target date to begin work on the project but first it has to be approved by the Memphis City Council.

While visitor numbers grew to around 700,000, by 2005, and partly due to the negative impact on US tourism of 9/11, visitor numbers at Graceland had reportedly declined to around 600,000.

[edit] Graceland in pop culture

The title of Paul Simon's album Graceland and the title track was inspired by Elvis's home. The title song, which presents Graceland as a holy place, also won the Grammy Award for Record of the Year a year later. The song "Walking in Memphis" by Marc Cohn features Graceland prominently.

Other references include movies such as Finding Graceland. Presley is the central character appearing as a bearer of spiritual messages.

There are even film titles ironically alluding to Presley's estate and the contemporary Elvis cult practiced there. For example, the movie 3000 Miles to Graceland is about a group of criminals who plan to rob a casino during an international Elvis week, and to make it easier, they are all disguised as Elvis impersonators.

In the TV show Full House, Elvis fan Jesse Katsopolis talked about holding his wedding at Graceland.

On his solo album Undiscovered Soul, Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora entitled a song Fallen from Graceland.

priscilla beaulieu presley

Priscilla Beaulieu Presley (born Priscilla Ann Wagner on May 24, 1945) is an American actress and businesswoman. She is the ex-wife of singer and actor Elvis Presley, and the mother of singer/songwriter Lisa Marie Presley. Priscilla is the founder of Elvis Presley Enterprises, where she served as chairman of the board from 1982 to 1998. As an actress, Priscilla is best known for co-starring with Leslie Nielsen in the three successful Naked Gun films, and for her five-year run playing the character Jenna Wade on the television series Dallas.

Life with Elvis

Elvis and Priscilla met in 1959 at a party in Bad Nauheim, Germany during his stay in the army.[9] She was 14 years old at the time. They quickly began a romantic relationship and were frequently together until Elvis left Germany in 1960. In her autobiography, Elvis and Me, Priscilla says that when they had sex, Elvis refused to have intercourse with her until they were married. However, biographer Suzanne Finstad writes that Priscilla and Elvis slept together on their second date, and that she wasn't a virgin when she met him.[10] Priscilla later filed a lawsuit against Currie Grant for his claim in Finstad's book that he had sex with her in exchange for introducing her to Elvis, and won. However, neither Finstad nor her publisher was a party to the lawsuit, and Finstad says she stands by the account in her book.

Priscilla and Elvis stayed in contact over the phone, though they would not see each other again until the summer of 1962, when Priscilla's parents agreed to let her visit for two weeks.[9][11] After another visit at Christmas, Priscilla's parents finally let her move to America for good.[9] Part of the agreement was that she would be attend an all-girls' Catholic school, and live with Elvis' father and his stepmother in a separate house on the Graceland estate until she graduated high school. Priscilla's parents allowed her to live at Graceland only if Elvis promised to eventually marry her.[9] Shortly before Christmas 1966, Elvis proposed to Priscilla. They married on May 1, 1967 at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas. Their only child, Lisa Marie, was born on February 1, 1968.

For the first few years, they were very happily married. However, when Elvis' career took off again, he was constantly touring and playing in Las Vegas. Due to Elvis being away so often and his ever-growing drug dependence, their marriage soured. Some of his health problems troubled his doctors and so they went undiagnosed until long after his death. Elvis was a keen karate student, and persuaded Priscilla to take it up. Priscilla thought it was a good idea as it would pass the lonesome time if she had a hobby to concentrate on. Priscilla was having an affair with a mutual acquaintance—Mike Stone, a karate instructor she had met in 1971 backstage at one of Elvis' concerts.[9] It was Elvis who first suggested Priscilla should take lessons from Stone.[9] Once the news of their affair came to his attention, he raged obsessively: "There's too much pain in me... Stone [must] die."[12]

Elvis and Priscilla separated on February 23, 1972 after 13 years together. Elvis filed for legal separation in August 1972, and then filed for divorce in January 1973. In the following months, Priscilla visited Elvis in Las Vegas where she claims that he forced himself upon her in his hotel room and said: "This is how a real man makes love to a woman".[13] They were divorced on October 9, 1973, agreeing to share custody of their daughter. They remained friends until Elvis died on August 16, 1977.

[edit] Later relationships

Presley purchased a large mansion in Beverly Hills. She dated lawyer Robert Kardashian in 1976.[14]

In 1978, Presley began a relationship with male model Michael Edwards. She invited Edwards and his daughter Caroline to move into her mansion. They were together for six years before breaking up in 1984. In 1988 he wrote a book entitled Priscilla, Elvis, and Me, in which he says he was obsessed with Elvis and was sexually attracted to Priscilla's daughter, Lisa Marie. Edwards claims that Priscilla had a one-night-stand with actor Richard Gere in 1983 and that she also dated singer Julio Iglesias. [15]

In late 1984, Priscilla began dating screenwriter Marco Garibaldi. They were together for nearly 22 years. The couple has a son, Navarone (born March 1, 1987). In 2005, Navarone was arrested for possession of magic mushrooms.[16]

Presley and Garibaldi broke up in March 2006. At the beginning of their relationship, Priscilla and Marco signed a promissory agreement that if they should break up, he will not write a book about her. [17]

In 2007, Priscilla was romantically linked with Nigel Lythgoe.[18][19]

[edit] Personal life

Presley is a devoted member of the controversial Church of Scientology,[20] and speaks publicly for the religion's anti-psychiatry front group, the CCHR.[21]

[edit] Career

[edit] Business in Graceland

After the death of Elvis' father Vernon in 1979, Presley served as co-executor of his estate. Marty Lacker, a close friend of Elvis, says he was approached by Priscilla after the singer's death "to help talk Vernon into naming her [in his will]".[22]

Graceland itself cost $500,000 a year in upkeep, and expenses had dwindled Lisa Marie's inheritance to $5 million. Priscilla examined other famous house-museums, and hired a CEO to turn Graceland into a moneymaker. She became the chairwoman and president of Elvis Presley Enterprises. It cost $536,000 to open Graceland, a massive gamble at the time and one which was certainly not guaranteed to pay off, but that money was earned back in the first 38 days that it was open to the public. After Graceland opened to the public in 1982, the enterprise's fortunes soared and eventually the trust grew to be worth over $100 million.

In addition, in 2000, Presley was elected to the board of directors of MGM, with the prime vote coming from Kirk Kerkorian, who dated Priscilla in the 1970s.[citation needed]

[edit] Acting

Priscilla had ambition to be an actress since she was a child, but did not pursue an acting career until after Elvis' death. Though she had once been considered as part of the original lineup for Charlie’s Angels, her acting career began modestly with a co-hosting job on the ABC series Those Amazing Animals from 1980 to 1981. Her first appearance was a guest spot on The Fall Guy in 1983. Her first film role was in the 1983 TV movie, Love is Forever, opposite Michael Landon. She later graduated to a recurring role as Jenna Wade, Bobby Ewing’s first love and mother of his son, Lucas, on Dallas from 1983 to 1988. She departed the series after disagreeing with the direction of her character and the series, settling into a regular rotation of guest star roles and appearances on Elvis-related documentaries and specials.

In 1988, Priscilla starred opposite Leslie Nielsen in the action comedy The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!, which unexpectedly became a huge box-office hit. She returned to the role in the hit 1991 sequel The Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of Fear, followed by Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult, in 1994.

Priscila's only other feature film has been the poorly received The Adventures of Ford Fairlane, in 1990. She hasn't acted in nearly a decade. Her most recent appearances have been on the television shows Melrose Place, in 1996, Touched by an Angel, in 1997, and in Spin City, in 1999.

[edit] Products

Priscila maintained a successful boutique from 1973 through 1976. Celebrity clients included Natalie Wood, Barbra Streisand, and Cher.[citation needed] She eventually signed with the William Morris Agency and landed a job as the national spokesperson for Wella Balsam’s line of hair products. Priscilla also launched her own fragrance, Moments, in 1988. Its popularity yielded a second brand, Experiences, in 1994, and Indian Summer followed in 1996.[citation needed]

[edit] Dancing with the Stars

Presley was a contestant on Season 6 of Dancing with the Stars. She was partnered with Louis van Amstel.

She referred, on air, to Dancing with the Stars as "the hardest thing she's ever had to do." She scored 24 out of 30 on the foxtrot on March 18, 2008, the second-highest score of the evening. The following week she scored 21 for her first Latin dance, the mambo. The third week she danced the tango and was highly praised by the judges, coming second on the leaderboard with a score of 26. The fourth week she danced the waltz and scored only 22. The judges lowered her score due to a lift in the routine. In the results show the following night, Priscilla found herself in the bottom two, but just managed to stay in the competition. The fifth week, Priscilla danced the rumba and scored 21, leaving her at the bottom of the leadboard. Priscilla found herself in the bottom two once again and this time she was voted off with the least amount of votes. The fifth week, she was eliminated.
