I've got the perfect prize. A pound of my friend Julie's only-offered-two-times-a-year-locally-roasted-coffee, aptly named "Elvis's Last Jelly Donut". I've had this coffee several times (but only in August and January, the two "Holy Months" of Elvis) and it really smells like a jelly donut. And it's delicious.

So I have to come up with a contest. And I suppose, since it's Elvis week and I'm in Memphis and the prize is all about Elvis, that the contest, too, should involve Elvis.
Thinking cap, thinking cap...there it is!
Okay, my two favorite Elvis songs have been featured in movies in the last ten years. One of them was also in an early Elvis movie. The other was not featured in any of Elvis's movies. The non-soundtrack song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame within the last ten years.
The first person to name the two songs will receive a pound of "Elvis's Last Jelly Donut" coffee. If you correctly name the three movies, I'll throw in a tacky Graceland souvenir. Or two. Or three.
The King is dead, y'all. Please, let's observe a moment of silence.
