Elvis Presley. The Top 5.

At the moment I am just trying a couple of different things out for my YouTube channel, this includes uploading a video featuring parts of Beethoven's symphony No.7, part 2 Allegreto. Another recent video I have done is an Elvis Presley top5 UK singles.

Elvis was without doubt ne of the biggest music stars ever with many hit records, but as this was a first ever attempt at anything like this I wanted to concentrate on a small amount so thought why not his top 5. I edited short sections of his songs together to make a 4min 15sec film, the background photos are all taken from the internet and I found them after searching for Elvis pictures available under a creative commons with modification licence. The songs featured also have copyright which belongs to third parties not me. Any ads placed over the video are at the third parties request and all revenues from the video will be paid to them.

The songs featured are in order from lowest to highest,

The Wonder of You.
Charting 3 times in the UK, the wonder of you was first released in July 1970 spending 21 weeks on the chart and 4 weeks at No.1. It was released again in September 1977 only spending 1 week in the chart reaching No.48. It was released a third and final (so far) time in April 2005 where it peaked at No.4 spending 5 weeks in the charts.
