Elvis Presley’s 8-Year-Old Mini-Me Sings “Blue Suede Shoes”

0  comments

There have been many Elvis Presley tribute artists and even Elvis Presley impersonators channeling the greatness and legacy of the late King of Rock and Roll with much bravado. Many have thrived to this line of business that being a tribute artist to the King has become a serious and lingering business to many people. Sometimes, most of them are being booked not only during the month of commemorating Elvis Presley but by existing fan clubs that missed his memory dearly.  Of all these tribute artists, Finley who appeared on Ellen DeGeneres schooled the audience how impersonators are different from tribute artists.

Of course, he also gave us an outstanding Elvis Presley number.

Blue Suede Shoes, Finley, Elvis Presley

“We were going on a family vacation and I saw a billboard of Elvis,” he recalls. “I went home and looked him up, but whenever I was lookin’ him up, I just felt Elvis in my soul.”

Those were the exact words of Finley to Ellen when he recalled how the King of Rock and Roll touched his soul and eventually became a tribute artist. Beforehand, Finley explained that he is an Elvis tribute artist and not an impersonator because there will only be one and only Elvis Presley.

The interview ended with the 8-year-old tribute artist singing Blue Suede Shoes donning a Presleyeque attire.

Recording cover versions of songs was a common practice during the 1940s and 1950s, and “Blue Suede Shoes” was one of the first songs RCA Victor wanted its newly contracted artist, Elvis Presley, to record.

Blue Suede Shoes Lyrics

Well, it’s one for the money,
Two for the show,
Three to get ready,
Now go, cat, go.

But don’t you step on my blue suede shoes.
You can do anything but lay off of my Blue suede shoes.

Well, you can knock me down,
Step in my face,
Slander my name
All over the place.

Do anything that you want to do, but uh-uh,
Honey, lay off of my shoes
Don’t you step on my Blue suede shoes.
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.

You can burn my house,
Steal my car,
Drink my liquor
From an old fruitjar.

Do anything that you want to do, but uh-uh,
Honey, lay off of my shoes
Don’t you step on my blue suede shoes.
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.
