I am writing this article to ask the opinion as to whether an interior design concept that I have developed, would provide enough interest from fans, for me to consider moving on to the production stage.

Despite there being a wide range of memorabilia that is being marketed to fans of celebrities; from the cheap and tacky, to the outrageously expensive, I believe that I have developed not only a niche product, but also one that is truly unique, and most importantly one that provides value for money.

Before I go on to explain what it is, I need to give you some background information.

I used to have an interior design business where I painted murals on ceilings and walls of people’s bedrooms, based on the night sky, and using all five of one’s senses (if my clients wish) to create a romantic and relaxing ambience.

As I used a phosphorescent paint, which could only be seen in the dark, one could not see my work during the day, or if lights were on in the room. However, as it began to get dark; as at dusk, one would gradually see the brightest constellation stars appear, and in time, the whole room would be transformed...

Well, when my blue moon turns to gold again
When my rainbow turns the clouds away
Well, when my blue moon turns to gold again
You'll be back within my arms to stay

When the memories that linger in my heart
Memories that make my heart grow cold
Well, you know some day they gonna live again sweetheart
And my blue moon again will turn to gold

Well, when my blue moon turns to gold again
When my rainbow turns the clouds away
Well, when my blue moon turns to gold again
You'll be back within my arms to stay

Memories, pressed between the pages of my mind
Memories, sweetened thru the ages just like wine

Quiet thought come floating down
And settle softly to the ground
Like golden autumn leaves around my feet
I touched them and they burst apart with sweet memories,
Sweet memories

Of holding hands and red bouquets
And twilight trimmed in purple haze
And laughing eyes and simple ways
And quiet nights and gentle days with you

Memories, pressed between the pages of my mind
Memories, sweetened thru the ages just like wine,
Memories, memories, sweet memories

Amazing grace, oh how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see
When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Then when, when we first begun
Through many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come
Jesus' grace that brought me safe thus far,
and grace will lead me home.
Amazing grace, oh how sweet the sound
To save a wretch like me

I once was lost, but now I'm found
I was blind, but now I see

It hurts me to see him treat you the way he does
It hurts me to see sit and cry
When I know I could be so true
If I had someone like you
It hurts me to see those tears in your eyes

The whole town is talking, they're callin' you a fool
For listening to his same old lies
And when I know I could be so true
If I had someone like you
It hurts me to see the way he makes you cry

You love him too much, you're too blind to see
He's only playing a game
But he's never loved you
He never will
And darling, don't you know he will never change

Oh, I know he never will set you free
Because he's just that kind of guy
But if you ever tell him you're through
I'll be waiting for you
Waiting to hold you so tight
Waiting to kiss you goodnight
Yes, darling, if I had someone like you

When you're weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes,
I will dry them all
I'm on your side
When times get rough
And friends just can't be found

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you're down and out
When you're on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you
I'll take your part
When darkness comes
And pain is all around

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on silver girl
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
If you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water

As the snow flies
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
A poor little baby child is born
In the ghetto
And his mama cries
'cause if there's one thing that she don't need
it's another hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto

People, don't you understand
the child needs a helping hand
or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day
Take a look at you and me,
are we too blind to see,
do we simply turn our heads
and look the other way

Well the world turns
and a hungry little boy with a runny nose
plays in the street as the cold wind blows
In the ghetto

And his hunger burns
so he starts to roam the streets at night
and he learns how to steal
and he learns how to fight
In the ghetto

Then one night in desperation
a young man breaks away
He buys a gun, steals a car,
tries to run, but he don't get far

I've been traveling over mountains
Even through the valleys, too
I've been traveling night and day
I've been running all the way
Baby, trying to get to you

Ever since I read your letter
Where you said you loved me true
I've been traveling night and day
I've been running all the way
Baby, trying to get to you

When I read your loving letter
Then my heart began to sing
There were many miles between us,
But they didn't mean a thing

I just had to reach you, baby,
In spite of all that I've been through
I kept traveling night and day,
I kept running all the way,
Baby, trying to get to you

Well if I had to do it over
That's exactly what I'd do,
I would travel night and day,
And I'd still run all the way,
Baby, trying to get to you

Well, there's nothing that could hold me
Or that could keep me away from you

Wise men say only fools rush in
but I can't help falling in love with you
Shall I stay
would it be a sin
If I can't help falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
some things are meant to be
take my hand, take my whole life too
for I can't help falling in love with you

I gave a letter to the postman,
he put it his sack.
Bright in early next morning,
he brought my letter back.

She wrote upon it:
Return to sender, address unknown.
No such number, no such zone.
We had a quarrel, a lover's spat
I write I'm sorry but my letter keeps coming back.

So then I dropped it in the mailbox
And sent it special D.
Bright in early next morning
it came right back to me.

She wrote upon it:
Return to sender, address unknown.
No such number, no such zone.

This time I'm gonna take it myself
and put it right in her hand.
And if it comes back the very next day
then I'll understand the writing on it

Return to sender, address unknown.
No such person, no such zone.

There must be lights burning brighter somewhere
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue
If I can dream of a better land
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
Tell me why, oh why, oh why can't my dream come true

There must be peace and understanding sometime
Strong winds of promise that will blow away
All the doubt and fear
If I can dream of a warmer sun
Where hope keeps shining on everyone
Tell me why, oh why, oh why won't that sun appear

We're lost in a cloud
With too much rain
We're trapped in a world
That's troubled with pain
But as long as a man
Has the strength to dream
He can redeem his soul and fly

Deep in my heart there's a trembling question
Still I am sure that the answer gonna come somehow
Out there in the dark, there's a beckoning candle
And while I can think, while I can talk
While I can stand, while I can walk

If you find your sweetheart
in the arms of a friend
That's when your heartaches begin
When dreams of a lifetime
must come to an end
That's when your heartaches begin

Love is a thing
you never can share
If you bring a friend
into your love affair
That's the end of your sweetheart,
that's the end of your friend
That's when your heartaches begin

Have I told you lately that I love you?
Could I tell you once again somehow?
Have I told with all my heart and soul how I adore you?
Well darling I'm telling you now

Have I told you lately when I'm sleeping
Every dream I dream is you somehow?
Have I told you why the nights are long
When you're not with me?
Well darling I'm telling you now

My heart would break in two if I should lose you
I'm no good without you anyhow
And have I told you lately that I love you
Well darling I'm telling you now

I need somebody to lean on
I need somebody to tell my troubles to
No use denying, I'm close to cryin'
But what good, tell me what good would my crying do

I need somebody to help me
Help me forget all those worries on my mind
And when I'm lonely, if someone would only
Want to be sweet and kind

I need somebody, won't that somebody
Please, please listen to my plea
Need that somebody, won't that somebody
Come running to me

I need somebody to lean on
I'm tired of being unhappy and so blue
If she came I would hold her 'cause I need that shoulder
To lean on, yes I really do
I need somebody, and maybe that somebody is you

Well, I quit my job down at the car wash,
Left my mama a goodbye note,
By sundown I'd left Kingston,
With my guitar under my coat,
I hitchhiked all the way down to Memphis,
Got a room at the YMCA,
For the next three weeks I went huntin' them nights,
Just lookin' for a place to play,
Well, I thought my pickin' would set 'em on fire,
But nobody wanted to hire a guitar man

Well, I nearly 'bout starved to death down in Memphis,
I run outta money and luck,
So I bought me a ride down to Macon, Georgia,
On a overloaded poultry truck,
I thumbed on down to Panama City,
Started pickin' out some o' them all night bars,
Hopin' I could make myself a dollar,
Makin' music on my guitar,
I got the same old story at them all night piers,
There ain't no room around here for a guitar man
We don't need a guitar man, son

So I slept in the hobo jungles,

A little less conversation, a little more action please
All this aggravation ain't satisfactioning me
A little more bite and a little less bark
A little less fight and a little more spark
Close your mouth and open up your heart and baby satisfy me

Satisfy me baby

Baby, close your eyes and listen to the music
Drifting through a summer breeze
It's a groovy night and I can show you how to use it
Come along with me and put your mind at ease, hey

A little less conversation, a little more action please
All this aggravation ain't satisfactioning me

Can't you see
I love you
Please don't break my heart in two
That's not hard to do
'Cause I don't have a wooden heart
And if you say goodbye
Then I know that I would cry
Maybe I would die
'Cause I don't have a wooden heart
There's no strings upon this love of mine
It was always you from the start
Treat me nice
Treat me good
Treat me like you really should
'Cause I'm not made of wood
And I don't have a wooden heart

Muss i denn, muss i denn
Zum Stadtele hinaus
Stadtele hinaus
Und du, mein Schatz, bleibst hier?

I worked all day and my feet feel just like lead
You got my shirt tails
Flying all over the place
And the sweat poppin' out of my head
She said 'Go bossa nova baby
keep on dancin'
I'm about to have myself a fit'
Bossa Nova, Bossa Nova

I said 'Hey little mama,
Let's sit down and
Have a drink and dig the band'
She said 'Drink, drink, drink
Oh fiddley-dink
I can dance with a drink in my hand'

Keep on working child
This ain't no time to drink'
She said 'Go bossa nova baby

Cause I ain't got the time to think'

And we can go for a little ride'

You can shake an apple off an apple tree
Shake-a, shake- sugar,
But you'll never shake me
Uh-uh-uh
No-sir-ee, uh, uh
I'm gonna stick like glue,
Stick because I'm
Stuck on you

Gonna run my fingers thru your long black hair
Squeeze you tighter than a grizzly bear
Uh-uh-uh,
Yes-sir-ee, uh, uh
I'm gonna stick like glue
Stick, because I'm
Stuck on you

Hide in the kitchen, hide in the hall
Ain't gonna do you no good at all
'Cause once I catch ya and the kissin' starts
A team o' wild horses couldn't tear us apart

Try to take a tiger from his daddy's side
That's how love is gonna keep us tied

Evening shadows make me blue
When each weary day is through
How I long to be with you
My happiness

Every day I reminisce
Dreaming of your tender kiss
Always thinking how I miss
My happiness

A million years it seems
Have gone by since we shared our dreams
But I'll hold you again
There'll be no blue memories then

Whether skies are grey or blue
Any place on earth will do
Just as long as I'm with you
My happiness

A well I bless my soul
What's wrong with me?
I'm itching like a man on a fuzzy tree
My friends say I'm actin' wild as a bug
I'm in love
I'm all shook up
Oh, yeah, yeah

My hands are shaky and my knees are weak
I can't seem to stand on my own two feet
Who do you thank when you have such luck?
I'm in love
I'm all shook up
Oh, yeah, yeah

Please don't ask me what's on my mind
I'm a little mixed up, but I'm feelin' fine
When I'm near that girl that I love best
My heart beats so it scares me to death!

She touched my hand what a chill I got
Her lips are like a vulcano that's hot
I'm proud to say she's my buttercup
I'm in love
I'm all shook up
Oh, yeah, yeah

My tongue get tied when I try to speak
My insides shake like a leaf on a tree
There's only one cure for this body of mine
That's to have the girl that I love so fine!

You saw me crying in the chapel
The tears I shed were tears of joy
I know the meaning of contentment
Now I am happy with the Lord

Just a plain and simple chapel
Where humble people go to pray
I pray the Lord that I'll grow stronger
As I live from day to day

I've searched and I've searched
But I couldn't find
No way on earth
To gain peace of mind

Now I'm happy in the chapel
Where people are of one accord
We gather in the chapel
Just to sing and praise the Lord

Every sinner looks for something
That will put his heart at ease
There is only one true answer
He must get down on his knees

Meet your neighbor in the chapel
Join with him in tears of joy
You'll know the meaning of contentment
Then you'll be happy with the Lord

You'll search and you'll search
But you'll never find

You're 'bout to starve me half to death
Well you can spare a kiss or two and
Still have plenty left, no no no
Baby, I ain't askin' much of you

Filled with honey to the top

Just a big-a big-a hunk o' love will do

I got wishbone in my pocket
I got a rabbit's foot 'round my wrist
You know I'd have all the things these lucky charms could bring

Baby, I ain't askin' much of you
Just a big-a big-a hunk o' love will do

You know, the landlord rang my front door bell
I let it ring for a long, long spell
I went to the window,
I peeped through the blind,
And asked him to tell me what's on his mind
He said,

Money, honey
Money, honey
Money, honey, if you want to get along with me

Well, I screamed and I hollered,
I was so hard-pressed
I called the woman that I loved the best
I finally got my baby about half past three,
She said I'd like to know what you want with me
I said,

Money, honey
Money, honey
Money, honey,
If you want to get along with me

Well, I said tell me baby, what's wrong with you?
From this day on our romance is through

In everthing I do
That's the wonder, the wonder of you

And when you smile the world is brighter
You touch my hand and I am a king
Your kiss to me is worth a fortune
Your love for me is everything
I guess, I'll never know the reason why
You love me as you do
that's the wonder, the wonder of you

I guess I'll never know the reason why
You love me as you do
That's the wonder, The Wonder of you

There must be lights burning brighter somewhere
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue
If I can dream of a better land
Where all my brothers walk hand in hand
Tell me why, oh why, oh why can't my dream come true
Oh why...

There must be peace and understanding someti-me
Strong winds of promise that will blow away
The doubt and fear
If I can dream of a warmer sun
Where hope keeps shining on everyone
Tell me why, oh why, oh why won't that sun appear

We're lost in a cloud
With too much rain
We're trapped in a world
That's troubled with pain
But a long as a man
Has the strength to dream
He can redeem his soul and fly

Deep in my heart there's a trembling question
Still I am sure that the answer, answer gonna come somehow
Out there in the dark, there's a beckoning candle...oh yeah
And while I can think, while I can talk

78 years ago was born the son of Gladys and Vernon Presley, the survivor twin Elvis, in East Tupelo, Mississippi. Amid the fragile economy of the city, the family was forced to move to Memphis, where Elvis, now a teenager, honed his musical gift through his church and some of his relatives. After the departure of Elvis to Sun Records to record songs that were supposed to be a gift for his mother, Sam Philips, label owner, got in touch with the future King of Rock n' Roll and began promoting him on radio and TV programs.
Ready, a businessman named Colonel Tom Parker saw one of the performances of Elvis and began to manage him, which led to his hiring with RCA.
Given his various shows and unforgettable performances, both on stage and in TV, Elvis' career took a turn that nobody expected: he became one of the greatest artists that we have knowledge. His success is not only restricted to the musical aspect as Elvis also devoted much of his time to film productions, and even wanted to be recognized for his good interpretation and would prefer to not include his songs to films he was starring. But unfortunately, the criticisms often were not in his favor.

Well, it's Christmas time pretty baby

Well, it's Christmas time pretty baby

No sack on my back
You're gonna see me comin' in a big black cadillac
Oh, it's Christmas time pretty baby

Well you be a real good little baby

I hear the bells
Saying Christmas is near
They ring out to tell the world
That this is the season of cheer


I hear a choir
Singing sweetly somewhere
And a glow fills my heart
I'm at peace with the world
As the sound of their singing fills the air


Oh why can't every day be like Christmas
Why can't that feeling go on endlessly
For if everyday could be just like Christmas
What a wonderful world this would be


I hear a child
Telling Santa what to bring
And the smile upon his tiny face
Is worth more to me than anything

Got a whole lot of money that's ready to burn,
So get those stakes up higher
There's a thousand pretty women waitin' out there
And they're all livin' devil may care
And I'm just the devil with love to spare

Than the twenty-four hours in the day
'Cause even if there were forty more
I wouldn't sleep a minute away
Oh, there's black jack and poker and the roulette wheel
A fortune won and lost on ev'ry deal
All you need's a strong heart and a nerve of steel
Viva Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas

And your one armbandits crashin'
All those hopes down the drain

Turnin' night into daytime

He was known by many names , But the main one was ' KING OF ROCK & ROLL ' .
Yes, he was forever grateful to his fans, he's one of the few stars that never forgot where he came from and who made him who he was , even thougth he went waaay beyond fame and fortune.
He was the inspiration for the Beatles , he surpassed the Sinatra mark 1000 times , it's been almost 40 years since his passing , and NO ONE has come even remotely close in duplicating or surpassing his mark , yet, he really didn't liked being called " KING " , he used to say : " THERE'S ONLY 1 KING, THAT'S JESUS CHRIST , amen brodar, amen.

Baby be polite
You're gonna make me sore
If you don't greet me right
Don't you ever kiss me once, kiss me twice
Treat me nice

So if you come on cold

Treat me nice

Scratch my back and run your pretty
Fingers through my hair

These long lonely evenings
Here I am on the phone
Wondering when she will call
She said she would write me
'Cause she knows I'm alone
But I hear nothing at all

I'm waiting for a word of love from Sylvia.
You think she'd never heard of love my Sylvia,
But when I'm with her, Lord, I forgive her
'Cause she's more than the whole world to me
There's nothing like a word of love from Sylvia
The only one I'm thinking of is Sylvia
Feeling so sad now, I'll be so glad now
If I just had my Sylvia with me

That old weepin' willow
Seems to whisper her name
Why did she go away
The tears on my pillow
They're not hard to explain
There's nothing else I can say

I'm waiting for a word of love from Sylvia.
You think she'd never heard of love my Sylvia,
But when I'm with her, Lord, I forgive her

There's a man in New Orleans
Who plays rock and roll
He's a guitar man
With a great big soul
He lays down a beat
Like a ton of coal
He goes by the name of King Creole


You know he's gone, gone, gone
Jumpin' like a catfish on a pole
You know he's gone, gone, gone
Hip shaking King Creole


When the king starts to do it
It's as good as done
He holds his guitar
like a tommy gun
He starts to growl
From way down his throat
He bends a string
And "that's all she wrote"

Well, he sings a song about a crawdad hole
He sings a song about a jelly roll
He sings a song about pork and greens
He wails some blues about New Orleans


Well, he plays something evil
Then he plays something sweet
No matter how he plays
You got to get up on your feet
When he gets the rockin' fever

She's everything a man could want,
But she's not you.


And when we're dancing

Whisp'ring your name


She even kisses me like you used to do.
And it's just breaking my heart

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.

Elvis Aaron Presley was born to Vernon and Gladys Presley in a two-room house in Tupelo, Mississippi, on January 8, 1935. His twin brother, Jessie Garon, was stillborn, leaving Elvis to grow up as an only child. He and his parents moved to Memphis, Tennessee, in 1948, and Elvis graduated from Humes High School there in 1953.

Elvis’ musical influences were the pop and country music of the time, the gospel music he heard in church and at the all-night gospel sings he frequently attended, and the black R&B he absorbed on historic Beale Street as a Memphis teenager.

In 1954, Elvis began his singing career with the legendary Sun Records label in Memphis. In late 1955, his recording contract was sold to RCA Victor. By 1956, he was an international sensation. With a sound and style that uniquely combined his diverse musical influences and blurred and challenged the social and racial barriers of the time, he ushered in a whole new era of American music and popular culture.

Even though he's no longer on this earth, i still listen to and enjoy his music!He was the greatest muscian of his time(i know there were others too though,just a figure of speech i guess).For some reason i rather listen to his music than music from the present day,Some of my favorite elvis songs are:Always on my mind,suspicious minds,american trilogy,devil in disguise,can't help falling in love,Its now or never.

I cant wait till i can one day go back to graceland.i will never forget the first time i went.
It was amazing , going by the grave site and the meditation garden gave me a weird feeling.(lets just say i got the chills)i hear they have added moreto Graceland.
So let me end this by saying
HAPPY 75 th Birthday Elvis AAron Presley
