Better Than Elvis


Much of the booger-eating segment of the population gets worked up this time of year over the death of their king.

Groucho Marx also died thirty years ago this weekend. Groucho was the real King. John Lennon always said that he thought Elvis died when he went in the Army. Lennon said a lot of crap, but this time he was right. This song, for example, is better than at least half of Elvis’s post-Army catalog.

    I’m torn. I adore Elvis but I also adore Groucho Marx. I was telling my son (who also loves both Elvis and Groucho) how unfair it was that Groucho’s number had to be called the same week Elvis’ was. Don’t you know that pissed Groucho off??? I would’ve loved to hear what he’d have said about that!

    Same kinda thing when Ray Charles died the same week as Ronald Reagan.

    This fantastic number also makes an appearance in The Philadelphia Story with Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn and Jimmy Stewart. One of the best.
