Always an avid Elvis Presley fan, I can say there are many many songs that merit recognition for their unique creative presentation and feeling. However, there is one tune that, at least in this critic's view ranks at the very bottom. The worst of Elvis, this one qualifies as one of the lesser hits by the legendary artist.
Lying Lester dedicates this dumb ditty to the lIberal pRogressives, as it is the sort of tripe they surely enjoy. Despite Lying Lester enjoying Rock-n-Roll, this is one song I give a big thumbs down to. Yes, Elvis Presley absolutely was a great artist, but this piece of rubbish is a definite misfire in Lying Lester's book. A song about how a worthless Poor is "doomed" to repeat the cycle of poverty? Lying Lester REJECTS the notion! How about trying hard work?
Yeah, I know, lIberal pRogressives don't believe in it! THAT is why the person being sung about can't escape the ghetto! At least Mr. Presley did not write this dishonest tune. WHY he chose to sing it is anyone's guess. Ayn Rand forbid he subscribed to the lIberal pRogressive ideology.
Lying Lester thinks he may very well have, given his acquiesce to singing and recording this terrible propagandist melody. Oh well... Lying Lester can still enjoy other Elvis songs, as "the King" only rarely spewed lEftist pRopaganda. In fact, many of his numbers are quite good, this one being the rare one that is exceptionally bad.
