May 1 - Fan Favorites

The countrywide Belgian radiostation 'Radio 1' broadcasted the annual 'Classics' live show. Last year listeners (and website visitors) voted Elvis #1 as most remarkable voice heard on the radio, this year Elvis had three songs in the Top 200: Heartbreak Hotel (#173), "Jailhouse Rock (#69) and "Suspicious Minds" (#13).

Follow That Dream Top 40

Compared to last month there is no visible movement in the Top 5 of the FTD Top 40. The recent "Elvis Now" has gathered its first votes, but is not storming the list like "Good Times" did.

The current Top 5:

1 (1) The Jungle Room Sessions (2000)
2 (2) Elvis Is Back! (2005)
3 (3) That's The Way It Is (2008)
4 (5) Elvis Country (2008)
5 (4) Recorded Live On Stage In Memphis (2004)

Import Top 40

Compared to last month the Top 5 of the Import Top 40 slightly changed. The classic "A Hot Winter Night In Dallas" climbed one spot, pushing "American Crown Jewels" back to number 3. At the bottom of the Top 10 "Brightest Star On Sunset Boulevard" occupies the numbers 8, 9 and 10: the two original volumes are just preceding the 2CD re-release.

The current Top 5 is:

1 (1) A Greensboro Revolution! (2008)
2 (3) A Hot Winter Night In Dallas (1998)
3 (2) American Crown Jewels (1996)
4 (4) Closing Night February 1970 (2008)
