Elvis' Greatest Hits — The Later Years



In honor of what would have been Elvis Presley's 75th birthday if he hadn't died on the can in 1977, we offer a video tribute to his Top 5 best songs during the later years.

It's easy to compile a list of the King's best songs when you have the Sun sessions, the early RCA singles and the Girls! Girls! Girls! soundtrack to choose from (yeah, we're kidding about that last one). After his 1968 comeback and stellar Memphis sessions, Elvis still offered plenty of great songs.

Here's the best of them. —Michael Gallucci

1. "Suspicious Minds"

2. "Burning Love"

3. "In the Ghetto"

4. "Kentucky Rain"

5. "Gentle on My Mind"
