Elvis Presley Song:

If I Can Dream (1968)

(Music and lyrics by Brown)

This song is about dreaming of peace, of a better land where brothers walk hand-in-hand. The song ends like this: "And while I can think, while I can talk, While I can stand, while I can walk, While I can dream, please let my dream Come true, right now. Let it come true right now, Oh yeah."

Elvis really needed that comeback. Without this song I don't think Elvis would have made it.

Beautiful song, and magnificent attempt by Elvis to keep the idealism that M.L. King and R.F.K alluded to alive. Simply fantastic soulful performance with no equal.
Another song I love of Elvis. There are so many. This man really knew how to sing, hold his voice and let it carry and echo throughout your body. All his gospel songs are great. I thing I have pretty much all of his songs.
Just want the world to know I love Elvis. I have loved him longer than I have loved my husband and I am married over 40 years, in fact my daughter is 40 this year and one of the gifts I will be giving her is the single (The Wonder of You) that I bought in 1970 the time when she was born... I love Elvis with all my heart and always will.

ONLY ELVIS COULD SING A SONG LIKE THIS WITH SUCH EMOTION. THERE WILL OF COURSE BE IMITATORS, SOME QUITE GOOD, BUT AT LEAST THESE PEOPLE KEEP THE SPIRIT OF ELVIS ALIVE. GOOD LUCK TO THEM I SAY.

I'm listening to this song now. He looks like my Dad who passed away the day after Elvis. Inspires me.

I sing Elvis song "If I Can Dream," and I'm proud to say I sing it from my heart to my best ability, but Elvis will never be matched, ever.

I LISTEN TO A LOT OF ELVIS SONGS AND EVEN SING SOME ON MY KARAOKE MACHINE. EVERYONE KEPT ASKING ME IF I HAD HEARD THE SONG "IF I CAN DREAM". I HAD NOT UNTIL I PURCHASED THE '68 COMEBACK SPECIAL AND HEARD IT ON THERE. IT IS EXCELLENT. I LOVE THE WAY HIS VOICE SOUNDED. I MAY NOT BE AN ELVIS FAN AS LONG AS SOME PEOPLE, BUT I DON'T ONLY LOOK AT ELVIS ON THE STAGE; I SEE HIM AS A HUMAN. ELVIS LOVED HIS FANS. HE WAS NOT PERFECT BUT WHO IS? LIKE HE SAID, HE WAS A MAN, NOT AN IMAGE. THANK GOD FOR SHARING YOU WITH THE WORLD.

I lost a wonderful husband in 2005 that was very ill and that I took care of. I am now remarried to another wonderful husband with the blessing of God and my late husband that always said he would look over me and the children once he was gone... His favorite song was If I Can Dream. This song is very special to me and a song I hold dearly in my heart!

Elvis was your favorite especially the song If I Can Dream
Elvis was a man that was just magical. He moved many people with his great music. I was born in 1996, so I never had a chance at meeting him, but I sure would have loved to. It's so easy to say that there will never be another like him. THE MAN, THE LEGEND, THE KING. He won't be forgotten.

My name is Elvis and I always loved Elvis Presley. He is my favorite rock and roll singer and he will always be my favorite. My name is named after him and my dad also loves Elvis Presley. I will always remember him.

I wasn't even born before 1980. since I was I think 10 or 11 when I first listened to an Elvis song I adored him and his singing. I love "If I can dream" specifically because it gives me goosebumps whenever I hear it, as if I can truly hear Elvis sings it right now.

one man
one voice
one legend
only one king.

I love this song I really do. The reason why it's my favorite because it just breaks up the prejudice out in the world, the dysfuntional families, just everything. It gives you hope that things will some how work out.

I have always loved ELVIS because he was Elvis.......
I love the way he sang. He still gives emotions and passion.
I believe there are not many people like him.


I also believe that even if he was considered the King, he was above all, a human being with his weaknesses and fears.

ELVIS YOU'RE THE GREATEST!!!
Elvis Presley .. Was. is. and always will be THE KING. THE MAN .. His fans of all ages will always love him and his music. He led the youth with his music and never once let them down. He was a model for them to follow in every sense of the word.
Elvis.. you will always be with us.

I first saw Elvis in 1965 in Mississippi. It's a long story. That's my dream come true. I will always love him.

A true message song, that Elivs always denied ever having. Did anyone see the duet with Celine Dion on American Idol? Was Elvis not great or what? Moving song, and it still fits in todays world. 5/7/2007

c moody
This is one of the most inspirational songs ever written, made even more powerful by Elvis' unique voice. Long live the KING

Andrew
Elvis always gives me hope.

This song can only be sang with passion,to be sang to it's reason for being written. I have yet to hear anyone sing this song to the level of Elvis. Elvis was a great communicator. He not only interpreted the music with words, but he had a way to make you feel the music, what it meant, what it was. He delivered the song to your soul.

Abe Hernandez
Hi, I think this is one of Elvis' best songs expressing our dreams for a better tomorrow and America. I have done a page on If I Can Dream. I used your quote. If I Can Dream
God Bless,

HELLO. I HEARD A RUMOR THAT THIS SONG "IF I CAN DREAM" WAS ABOUT MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. IS THAT TRUE? THANKS, CAROLYN

Martin Luther King Jr. was shot in April 1968, Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated in June 1968, and later in June Elvis is recording his '68 "comeback special" TV show - his first public performance after years of filming. The song "If I can dream" was written to be the closing number for this TV show, and is alluding back to the recent events. See also
