On the anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley, it is good to remind ourselves that Elvis is everywhere.

Elvis Aaron Presley died on August 16, 1977. Millions mourned his passing. Millions still miss him. In 1987, Mojo Nixon and Skid Roper put out a song to help everyone remember that Elvis is everywhere. Watching the music video is a good way to mark this 33rd anniversary of the passing of the King. After all, “we are all moving in perfect peace and harmony towards Elvisness.”
