5. Look at them there moves!

6. They all wiggle a little as they watch him perform.


7. Many of them recount how their parents were horrified and thought he ruined music.

8. But maybe that’s because Elvis was a new type of musician with a totally different sound.

9. And that’s something that resonates with younger generations.

10. It seems we can attribute our idea of celebrity culture to Elvis, because he was the first global phenomenon.

11. He came on the scene before The Beatles, and it was the first time girls freaked out over a celebrity like that.
