Elvis or Chuck Berry? Bachmann stirs ‘Promised Land’ debateby George Bennett | August 30th, 2011
Forget the drilling/conservation or church/state debates fueled by Republican presidential hopeful and recent Florida barnstormer Michele Bachmann. Her use of Elvis Presley‘s Promised Land as intro music at her rallies leaves PostOnPolitics.com wondering which version is better: Presley’s 1974 rendition or the original 1965 release by Chuck Berry.
You be the judge. And note the pronunciation of “a la carte” in Berry’s original and Presley’s cover.
