Song of the Week: "Jailhouse Rock"

This past weekend was Elvis Presley weekend on all the oldie stations here in South Carolina, commemorating the King of Rock 'n' Roll's death just over 30 years ago. It's crazy to think it's been 31 years since the King's death (well before my time, I know) but the reality of his impact throughout the music industry and rock 'n' roll is inarguable. Growing up, I listened to a lot of Elvis thanks to my Dad and his favorite station, New York's WCBS 101.1. And, while at the time I'd wish he'd listen to anything but the oldie's, I've come to fully appreciate and respect the music I grew up with, Elvis being one of my favorites. Below is the King's fun video for "Jailhouse Rock" — a classic which can never be forgotten. Enjoy!
