Counting Down Elvis: His 100 Finest Songs by Mark Duffett is a real treat for all Elvis fans who love his enchanting and timeless songs that speak for themselves. The book is a dedication to and a profound appreciation of the music Elvis created and will make people aware of his immortal songs. There are a lot of good insights in the book that throw light on the aura and genius of this great musician. The book connects with all music lovers, especially with the fans who want to get beyond the greatest hits and do not know quite where to start, and to those who might use it as an inspiration daily. Let's read the book to discover the author's favorite 100 Elvis tracks and enjoy his magnetic and supreme voice and songs.

Mark Duffett relives the memories of Elvis Presley by sharing the 100 songs that he likes and also gives an explanation of the music and what would have made the singer compose it. The book captures the soul of Elvis Presley and brings back nostalgic memories of the times when Elvis Presley represented something much bigger; Hollywood, family entertainment, and social conformity. I think all music lovers will be thankful to this author for giving them an amazing book on one of the greatest singers of all time and revisiting his famous songs. There is a great amount of research done and that is evident to readers. Reading this book is a good way to understand the music and American culture that existed during Elvis Presley's life. It is a well-researched book that will make readers never forget the music of Elvis Presley and Elvis Presley the man himself.
