Alt Left: Elvis Presley, “Can’t Help Falling in Love”

Wise men say
Only fools rush in
But I can’t help falling in love with you

Shall I stay?
Would it be a sin
If I can’t help falling in love with you?

Like a river flows
Surely to the sea
Darling, so it goes
Some things are meant to be

Take my hand
Take my whole life, too
For I can’t help falling in love with you

Like a river flows
Surely to the sea
Darling, so it goes
Some things are meant to be

Take my hand,
Take my whole life, too
For I can’t help falling in love with you
For I can’t help falling in love with you

I can’t believe how perfect this song is. They didn’t call him The King for nothing. I also can’t believe this song is from all the way back in 1961! I was four years old then. My Mom was 39 when this song came out. She always hated Elvis and all rock and roll for that matter. His first music was in 1954, so she would have been 22 then. It’s odd that she didn’t find popular music good at age 22.

However, Elvis was an immensely divisive character when he first came out. He swung his hips in a sexual way. They said he was making “Black music” or I guess more appropriately “nigger music.” Black music was seen as immoral, base, vulgar, obscene and obsessed with sex. Whites were supposed to be above all of that.

And in that sense, Elvis was probably one of the first true wiggers. Well God bless him.

I assume my Mom was on the side of the good White girls” who were upset by Elvis rude and dirty music. Probably only a slut or a poor or working class person would like a song like that.

My Mom actually grew up rich. She literally lived in a mansion! Her class of upper, upper middle, and middle class White women very much looked down on Black and Hispanic women and working class and poor White women, as they were thought to not be able to control themselves and they basically acted like disgusting women and whores.

  • No woman in my Mom’s circle would pick a fight with her husband.
  • None would attack his masculinity.
  • It was quite rare that my mother raised her voice at my father.

Good, White, classy wives didn’t do that low class, niggerish stuff. The worst thing you could act like in my Mom’s generation was a “woman of the streets.” And that’s how my Mom’s circle of women saw loudmouthed, obnoxious, combative, screechy, rude, disrespectful, husband-fighting Black, Brown and low and working class White women.

A proper woman was supposed to control herself and in general these types of women were “out of control” and “women of the streets (whores).” Somewhat disgusting, low class women (no matter their income) who couldn’t control themselves and respect their husbands like decent and proper classy White wives.

  1. No offense, but often women into “higher values” are snobs. Also, of course, not all minority women are sluts and whores. Give me a break!

    Now what’s better – a clean snob – or a dirty person with a good heart?

    Also, finally, how did they become sluts and whores? More than not, it was victimization by the dad or others.

    1. Enough were feral whores that Elvis had to put a jungle room in his house. A lot of women were whores for Elvis though.

  2. Being a wigger then was more respectable. I used to hang with wiggers, my cousin is one. If you don’t grow out of it. It’s not pretty later in life.

    1. I don’t see any problem with liking Black music. That doesn’t make you an idiot LOL. Well, the Nazis tried to ban jazz, and that sums it up.
