    I voted Roy, and no it's not because Cops is my hubby. I voted Roy because... well, his name is the same as my dad's (love ya, Dad!)

    The truth is both were very good at what they did. Each had their own style and era. However, having listened to them both since 1993 (daily for many years - thanks, Cops!) and hearing songs that most of you have never heard before, no doubt, Roy could and would blow Elvis out of the building. Sweet Dreams is my favorite.

    Silently i hear the sound of the blue rain coming down.
    It's late tonight and i just saw you walking by.
    Without one word of hello or goodbye.
    Just one look at you with someone new,
    And then i knew i'd see you go around in the blue blue rain.

    I didn't know one moment ago it could rain this way
    You use to run straight to my arms now you turn away.
    Oh i never knew such of feeling of blue.
    Blue rain blue rain.
    Blue rain.

    Why did you make me love you than break my heart in two.
    Then leave me alone here in the rain to cry for you.
    Tomorrow will be filled with the lonely.blue rain.
    Blue rain.blue rain.

    I remember you all alone,walking on,
    And crying,losing you,
    In the blue blue rain.

    My Song From Roy Orbison.

    Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me,
    Starlight and dewdrops are waiting for thee;
    Sounds of the rude world heard in the day,
    Lull'd by the moonlight have all pass'd away!

    Beautiful dreamer, queen of my song,
    List while i woo thee with soft melody;
    Gone are the cares of life's busy throng

    Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!
    Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!

    Beautiful dreamer, out on the sea,
    Mermaids are chaunting the wild lorelie;
    Over the streamlet vapors are borne,
    Waiting to fade at the bright coming morn.

    Beautiful dreamer, beam on my heart,
    E'en as the morn on the streamlet and sea;
    Then will all clouds of sorrow depart,

    Blue teardrops are falling
    What lonely shades of blue teardrops
    From a silent heartache deep inside
    Comes a lonely feeling I can't hide
    I can't remember just how long I've cried
    Blue teardrops, blue teardrops

    Blue teardrops, blue teardrops all night long
    Blue teardrops, blue teardrops since you've gone
    Remember baby, I need you
    Remember baby, my love for you will never die
    Believe me baby, I can't stop it
    Believe me baby, I can't help but cry

    Blue teardrops are falling
    What lonely shades of blue teardrops
    Blue teardrops, tears
    Blue teardrops, tears in my heart
    Tears on my pillow

    When those blue, blue teardrops start, they never stop!
    Falling, falling all of the time
    Falling, falling, filling my mind
    Ev'ry time I think of you
    Teardrops, blue teardrops
    Blue teardrops come around

    Blue teardrops are falling
    What lonely shades of blue teardrops

    Only you and no one else
    Can keep me crawling back
    You know i cant help myself
    And now i'm crawling back

    After all you've done to me
    The times you've turned me down
    I still will be your clown
    Because i love you
    I'm crawling back

    You know i would die for you
    Heaven knows how i have cried for you
    But what else can i do
    But crawl on back to you, ooh
    Crawling back to you

    People stop they talk and they stare
    But they don't know that you really care
    That you're only lonely, and making believe
    And you need me around
    When the world turns you down

    Whenever you might need me
    I will come crawling back
    Wherever you will lead me
    I will come crawling back

    the valley is hushed
    The flowers are all dying
    The meadow is white with the winter snow
    Lord as i stand at the place where daddies lying
    I say a silent prayer and somehow i know
    He hears me there, though soft i tread above him
    So now he sleeps in peace
    His danny boy's come home

    ................. the pipes the pipe are calling
    From glen to glen and down the moutainside
    The summers gone and all the leaves are falling
    Its you, its you must go and i must bide
    O come ye back when the sun shines on the meadow
    Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
    For i'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
    Oh danny boy, oh danny boy i love you so

    I close my eyes and still i can see
    Him standing there on the hill
    Tears filled his eyes as he waved goodbye to me
    I can't forget, i guess i never will

    He said, the valley is hushed
    The flowers are all dying
    The meadow is white with the winter snow
    Come find the place
    Where you know that i'll be lying
    Say a silent prayer
    So i'll know

    Roy Orbison had the most tallent by far, singer, songwriter.
    Elvis just had better pubic relations.
    If you can't do it from a boat. Do you really want to do it?

    Elvis had style. Elvis also didn't have annoying fan boys who posted the lyrics in a thread he started that annoyed the piss out of me.
    The virtue of spirit has no need for thanks or approval. Only the certain conviction that what has been done is right. -Jor El, as played by Marlon Brando

    You know, I'm not sure if that was deliberate joke or a typo, but it doesn't matter - it sure did make me laugh.

    +1 and I'd still have to go with Elvis!
    Never approach a bull by the front, a horse from behind, or an idiot from any direction.

    I Love you man these are the songs that will be played when I leave this world..

    Elvis Himself said, "Roy is the best singer in the world" I Like Elvis also, but Roy was a private person, while Elvis was not...

    Elvis.

    Elvis has his own Sirius Satellite station that plays his songs 24/7. So I'll have to say he wins.
