I have this memory. Sometime in the 1960s and I was grade school age. That's about as close as I can get to the year and date.
My parents were setting up our new family Hi Fi set. My Dad was acting agitated because it would not fit just right, and he kept having to shift and maneuver it. He then turned on the attached radio to see if it would work, and on came Elvis singing, "I can't stop falling in love with you..."
All tension suddenly left the room.
My mom's eyes got big and she glanced quickly at my Dad. He looked at her and their eyes just stayed that way...like they were in a trance with this funny happy look on their faces. This was my first introduction to Elvis and I remember thinking, "Wow, this singer must be really important."
It wasn't till many years later, that I figured out it was not Elvis who put them in a trance.
I'm so thankful Mom did not marry this one:
Good she married this one instead:
