On this episode of TCBCast, the guys have taken their fascination with Elvis's musical connections to the extreme; to paraphrase the famous Jurassic Park quote, Gurdip & Justin were so preoccupied with whether they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.
Diving into abbreviated histories behind 10 songs Elvis referenced off-hand at home, in the studio or in concert, to find the stories behind the entertainers who popularized them and how many of them connect to Elvis's career and legacy in surprising ways. Can they truly make an episode out of less than 2 minutes total of Elvis singing random bits of songs? You'd better believe it.
Then for Song of the Week, Justin gets "Way Down" with the final single released in Elvis's lifetime and Gurdip discovers a rarely heard original of 1957's "Hot Dog" that in our estimation, may even surpass Elvis's version from the "Loving You" soundtrack.
