"I will say that there are people that are gonna like you and people that don’t like you regardless of what business you’re in or what you do. You cannot please everyone."



June 5, 1956 ▸ Elvis performs “Hound Dog” on The Milton Berle Show.

(…) as the song comes to an end he is dragging the microphone down to the floor, staggering almost to his knees. Scotty and D.J. and Bill keep their eyes glued on him, there is only the slightest flicker of surprise as he points at the audience and declares emphatically, You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog, then goes into his patented half-time ending, gripping the mike, circling it sensuously, jackknifing his legs out as the audience half-screams, half-laughs, and he laughs, too — it is clearly all in good fun.

— (From Last Train to Memphis by Peter Guralnick, 1994)
