Lucky for me, I got my Elvis outfit back from the drycleaners in time for the Invitationals tonight. I'm still going to have to arrange for some modifications, as I've gotten a bit plump from all the pudding I made over the holidays. Basically, my Landlady is going to have to stitch the costume onto me right before we go to the EMP.
I still need to choose a song. The polls didn't settle anything, because there was a tie between "Polk Salad Annie" and "I Slipped, I Stumbled, I Fell." I asked the Landlord to break the tie, and instead, he voted for "From a Jack to a King." He was no help at all whatsoever.
I'm going to go with "I Slipped, I Stumbled, I Fell," because of the banana peel reference. The song is better for my vocal range, anyway.
Still, part of me was looking forward to "Polk Salad Annie" because of the bit at the end with the backup singers:
Hey, hey, hey, yeah, yeah
(Chic a bon, chic a bon, chic a bon bon bon bon
Chic a bon, chic a bon, chic a bon bon bon bon).
