Rank the Tracks: Elvis Presley's Elvis Presley

BleuPanda wrote:The basic idea is to rank the tracks off the album each week to see how each track compares to each other. It's an excuse to go back to classic albums and a way to gauge the best and worst tracks of the most acclaimed albums. Simply rank all the tracks from your favorite to your least.

I plan to go in cycles of decades with the 1950s and 2010s once every other cycle. I will go with the top album of each respective decade, but I might skip questionable albums (I doubt anyone wants to rank the tracks of 69 Love Songs, no matter how great the album is).


Also, if you missed an album that you want to rank, you can do so in this thread. Please keep it to 1 old album per week. I will update the results. Please don't bump previous threads. I'd like to keep everything in the current topic and the result topic.

Elvis Presley (1956) track listing:

01 | Blue Suede Shoes
02 | I'm Counting on You
03 | I Got a Woman
04 | One-Sided Love Affair
05 | I Love You Because
06 | Just Because
07 | Tutti Frutti
08 | Tryin' to Get to You
09 | I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Cry (Over You)
10 | I'll Never Let You Go (Little Darlin')
11 | Blue Moon
12 | Money Honey

I'll upload the overall ranks so far in two weeks, and start the new album then.

And sorry Bleu - I stole your introduction, but it's a great introduction.

It was the one originally schedule after "Channel Orange", so I just chose this as the first one.

No, I knew that (and if I'm correct Sgt. Peppers will be the next album) I was just stating that so people will know my general opinion about the album.

To my knowledge nobody counted the votes for "Channel Orange" so far. I was posting at the end of every round the correlations between our votes and the critics' ones but the results of "Channel Orange" (that closed the third round) were never posted.

I was going to do this along with Elvis.

Hard to give a score for the songs when they are all (almost all?) covers.

To be honest, I really like only one song, the first one.

01 | Blue Suede Shoes
08 | Tryin' to Get to You
12 | Money Honey
10 | I'll Never Let You Go (Little Darlin')
11 | Blue Moon
07 | Tutti Frutti
06 | Just Because
09 | I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Cry (Over You)
04 | One-Sided Love Affair
03 | I Got a Woman
05 | I Love You Because
02 | I'm Counting on You


P.S. : I love this game. Happy to see a new Game's master.

Just reminding you to listen to the album and rank the tracks. Its tracks are widely available on the internet.

I think you'll have a lot more luck with "Sgt. Pepper's" next week, babydoll. As with many threads, the number of participants will vary greatly depending upon how many fans there are of the artist/album/song. Unfortunately, I don't think there are a lot of big Elvis fans on the forum. (I think I can say with some confidence that I'm probably the biggest, since he's my all-time favorite artist and I love his moody seventies output as much - if not more - than his legendary fifties music.)

My rankings:
11 | Blue Moon
04 | One-Sided Love Affair
08 | Tryin' to Get to You
01 | Blue Suede Shoes
12 | Money Honey
05 | I Love You Because
10 | I'll Never Let You Go (Little Darlin')
02 | I'm Counting on You
06 | Just Because
03 | I Got a Woman
09 | I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Cry (Over You)
07 | Tutti Frutti

In the King's defense, his cover was better than Pat Boone's. Granted, that is a low bar to surmount.

Plus why can't a white guy cover "Tutti Frutti"?

Um, tieb, is #7 "I Got a Woman" or "One-Sided Love Affair"? Sorry, I didn't catch this error until now.

They give awards for that music? I thought just ear plugs. (Woody Allen in Annie Hall)
