There is something iconic about Blue Suede Shoes. I suspect that if you asked people to name songs most associated with Elvis – not necessarily their favourites – this one would rank pretty highly in their lists. With iconic, however, you often get cliched as well – this is a good case in point for me – which probably accounts for me listing it this far down the Countdown.
