VIVA ELVIS - Suspicious Minds -
Campaign to get ELVIS BACK TO NUMBER ONE
- By Brian Quinn
'Viva Elvis' Album/'Suspicious Minds' Single - UK Radio Request Campaign:
The 'Viva Elvis' Album from the Cirque du Soleil Vegas Hit Musical 'Viva Elvis' will be released on 8th November in the UK/Europe and on 9th November in the U.S.A.. The first single release from the album is 'Suspicious Minds' to be released on 25th October. Sony are going to give these releases major promotion. Those who have heard the tracks, fan and non-fan, are amazed at the remix quality bringing Elvis' sound into the 21st Century. Major worldwide hits are expected for these releases.
- Having said this we must consider that no release can make it on its own without Radio and TV exposure. The TV/Magazine exposure will come from Sony but the radio exposure can only come from requests made to local and national radio stations by us, the fans.
Bearing this in mind I hope you will all join me in my efforts to get as many tracks played as possible by blanketing radio stations with requests thus ensuring 'Viva Elvis' and 'Suspicious Minds' go straight to No.1 on the UK Album Charts during its first week of release.
It is as easy as sending a email to your favourite Radio station.
Please help with Brian Quinn's campaign to get ELVIS BACK TO NUMBER ONE.
To help with this UK campaign I have chosen the following website - www.mediauk.com/radio/ which gives an up to date list of all radio stations in the UK. Individual DJ's and Shows are listed.
May I suggest that you start e-mailing requests for the single release 'Suspicious Minds' around 4th October and for the 'Viva Elvis' album around 18th October.
This will give DJ's enough time to schedule your requests into their shows.
Personally, I will attempt to e-mail as many Stations/DJ's in the UK as possible.
Please do your best and join me. Many Thanks in advance.
The following is a list of the tracks on the CD to assist you in your selection:
2. Blue Suede Shoes
3. That's All Right
4. Heartbreak Hotel
5. Love Me Tender
6. King Creole
7. Bossa Nova Baby
8. Burning Love
9. Memories [interlude]
10. Can't Help Falling In Love
11. You'll Never Walk Alone [piano interlude]
12. Suspicious Minds
For those of you who do not have time to compose a request I have printed mine below so that you can copy it should you so wish and add your favourite track
On 8th November Sony Records release the groundbreaking album 'Viva Elvis' from the Las Vegas hit show of the same name. The tracks are truly outstanding having been remixed with new backings and feature some of Elvis' greatest hits thus bringing his sound into the 21st Century and appealing to young and old alike. Unlike previous Elvis CD compilations these sound like completely new recordings.
I would appreciate it if you could play......................... from the said album as it is one of my all time favourites (or 'Suspicious Minds' if requesting the single).
Start the ball rolling and send an email to your local radio station today!
