This week, Justin & Gurdip highlight five songs apiece that Elvis recorded written by Black songwriters - whether they have interesting stories behind them, are iconic tunes of Elvis' musical career, or the guys just happen to like the songs a whole hell of a lot.
Then, for Song of the Week, Gurdip is all pooped out after picking the fiery "Dixieland Rock" from 1958's "King Creole" soundtrack. Justin finishes out by going deep on "If I Can Dream," the finale number of the "Singer Presents Elvis" TV Special from 1968, and loosely inspired by the words of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
