The Artist

Elvis Presley was an American singer and actor. Regarded as one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century, he is often referred to as the “King of Rock and Roll” or simply “the King”. With a series of successful network television appearances and chart-topping records, he became the leading figure of the newly popular sound of rock and roll. His energised interpretations of songs and sexually provocative performance style, combined with a singularly potent mix of influences across colour lines during a transformative era in race relations, made him enormously popular—and controversial. Presley is one of the most celebrated and influential musicians of the 20th century. Commercially successful in many genres, including pop, country, blues, and gospel, he is the best-selling solo artist in the history of recorded music.

The Song

Good Luck Charm is a song recorded by Elvis Presley and published by Gladys Music. It reached number 1 in the UK Singles Chart and the US Billboard Hot 100 list. The song was written by Aaron Schroeder and Wally Gold. A good luck charm is an amulet or other item that is believed to bring good luck. In the song Elvis Presley sings, “Come on and be my little good luck charm” with reference to his sweetheart.

Taking Care of Business – The Shape

Modelled into the Presleys “Taking Care of Business in a Flash”. “Takin’ Care of Business” is a song written by Randy Bachman and first recorded by Canadian rock group Bachman–Turner Overdrive (BTO) for their 1973 album Bachman–Turner Overdrive II. During his last few years of life, Elvis Presley adopted “Taking Care of Business in a Flash” as a motto, abbreviated as TCB and associated with a lightning bolt. The logo can be seen on one of his airplanes, and is still used in Elvis merchandise. His entertainment room at Graceland also shows his dedication to that motto. His last backup group was called the TCB Band, which still plays under the name. Elvis had been a major influence on Bachman, who in 2010 said he had been aware of rumours about the origins of the TCB name but had not had them confirmed until watching a documentary about Elvis in which his widow confirmed the BTO connection.
