Yeah, I did the Graceland tour and this is one of the things they talk about. He's still a great entertainer and artist as a performer.
No I didn't. But a lot of artists, especially today, don't write their own. There are a handful of genuinely good songwriters and artists (eg. Sia, ed Sheeran) but so many just pay others to write it and they sing it.
Yup, and some of his dance moves were stolen.
It isn't a secret anymore.
Nope, not surprised...
Oh no. My life has been affected.
Yes, but he is still a legend.
So he didn't write 'Don't be Cruel'? Well that sucks.
none of them? at all? not even sometimes? o. o no I didn't know that. that's crazy. never really thought about it. Doesn't change the fact that NOBODY could perform them like he did though. That's why he is the man :) I wish song writers got more credit for their amazing lyrics though.
no but it wouldn't really surprise me
