  • onemli bir album olmasinin yani sira, (bkz: elvis presley)'nin evinin de adi olmaktadir aslinda.
  • memphisde bulunan bugun muzemsi bir para makinesine donusmus malikhane. kral olmeyip arka odalarda paralari saymiyorsa, burada gomulu.
  • elvis presleyin 1957 yilinda ta$indigi, o gunden bu gune kadar ana caddedeki duvarina hayranlari tarafindan yazilar yazilan malikhane.
  • paul simon'ın 3 yıllık afrika macerası dönüşünde yaptığı albüm.
  • paul simon, o siralarda apartheid politikasindan dolayi dunya capinda ambargoya maruz kalmis olan guney afrika'ya gidip oradaki muzisyenlerle calistigi icin epey elestirilmistir zamaninda. oysa ki ne guzel yapmistir, hem zaten adam gidip irkci beyazlarla calismadi, ezilmekte olan siyah muzisyenlerle album yapti.
    neyse politik tarafi bir yana, 80'lerde yapilmis en guzel albumlerden biriydi. 1986'da yayinlandi, ben de ilk kez trt ekraninda the boy in the bubble'i gordukten sonra muserref olmustum. zamansizligi ile guzel olan, hic bir zaman eskimeyen bir albumdur. ayrica batili muzisyenin ucuncu dunya ulkesine gidip yerel muzisyenlerle album yapma klisesini 80'lerde tekrar diriltmistir de denebilir. bu album olmasaydi, 80'lerin sonlarinin ve 90'larin world music tarzi olur muydu, allah bilir..
    bir kac sarki tavsiye etmek gerekirse, the boy in the bubble, diamonds on the soles of her shoes ve homeless derim.
  • elvis presleyin 21 yaşında 100bin dolara satın aldığı ev, elvis bu evi anne ve babasi için almış , annesi ölene kadar bu evde mutlu mesut yaşamışlar.
  • bir paul simon parçası. sözleri...

    the mississippi delta was shining
    like a national guitar
    i am following the river
    down the highway
    through the cradle of the civil war
    i'm going to graceland
    graceland
    in memphis tennessee
    i'm going to graceland
    poorboys and pilgrims with families
    and we are going to graceland
    my traveling companion is nine years old
    he is the child of my first marriage
    but i've reason to believe
    we both will be received
    in graceland

    she comes back to tell me she's gone
    as if i didn't know that
    as if i didn't know my own bed
    as if i'd never noticed
    the way she brushed her hair from her forehead
    and she said losing love
    is like a window in your heart
    everybody sees you're blown apart
    everybody sees the wind blow

    i'm going to graceland
    memphis tennessee
    i'm going to graceland
    poorboys and pilgrims with families
    and we are going to graceland

    and my traveling companions
    are ghosts and empty sockets
    i'm looking at ghosts and empties
    but i've reason to believe
    we all will be received
    in graceland

    there is a girl in new york city
    who calls herself the human trampoline
    and sometimes when i'm falling, flying
    or tumbling in turmoil i say
    oh, so this is what she means
    she means we're bouncing into graceland
    and i see losing love
    is like a window in your heart
    everybody sees you're blown apart
    everybody feels the wind blow

    in graceland, in graceland
    i'm going to graceland
    for reasons i cannot explain
    there's some part of me wants to see
    graceland
    and i may be obliged to defend
    every love, every ending
    or maybe there's no obligations now
    maybe i've a reason to believe
    we all will be received
    in graceland
