Elvis By Bono

Listen in pop-out player

U2's singer Bono reads his own poem, Elvis, and weaves it into an atmospheric sound-scape.

The poem, which sounds like the beat poetry of Adrian Henri, contains images from Elvis' life and his legacy, American history, and popular culture of the last 50 years from crooning to rap via rock and roll, from Valentino to television via Nixon and Lisa Marie. It is blended with archive material and recorded, specially-composed music.
