Eventually Johnny Talks June into doing a duet tour with him and eventually they fall in love and the rest is history. The music in the film was all live reenactments of the artist on that tour. Mainly Johnny Cash. Personally I love Johnny Cashes Music which is a major reason I chose this film. Johnny is remembered as mainly a country Icon, but if you watch him in the film he is actually very similar to Elvis later in his prime when it comes to stage appearance.

Crystal Mendez From Elvis to J-Lo: 50 Years of Pop Music Jill Van Nostrand Early Legends of Rock ‘n Roll Another Legend is Elvis Presley, the phenomenon, Elvis, changed the music, film, and television world forever. He had 149 different albums and singles that became certified gold, platinum, or multi-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). 18 of his songs went to number one on the charts totaling 80 weeks. He took many influences throughout his life, combined it, and ratified the way music will be used forever. To put a cherry on top of this sundae would be to also mention that 40%, almost 1/2) of his record sales, was outside of the United States.
I think that we should still recognize Elvis as the king of rock ‘n’ roll. I admire him for multiple reasons. He came from so little and became so known. He also served for this county when his career was at his highest. Elvis was a huge American icon.
“The American flag is a cherished symbol of our national aspirations. It is the closest object to a national icon, rivaled only by the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence… what is the harm in insisting a modicum of respect for it” (Allen 18). Allen feels that the flag is a very important symbol to the nation and thinks that everybody should show respect towards it. The tone used to describe his reasoning is very fierce, as Allen points out the wrongs in the decision. Even though Allen thinks that the Supreme Court wasn’t wrong in their decision, his opinion is very strong, as he suggests how people should treat the flag with respect because of its importance.
Mark Sharktier Smitch AP Lang February 26th, 2013 AP Write 2: Alfred M. Green A true lover of his country, Alfred M. Green believes in the true equality of all men. This vexing persuasion brings forth the power in his statements. By demonstrating true patriotism, religion, family, Green generates motivation that is felt by all. His diction adds a powerful factor in persuading his audience, and the ideas he demonstrates accurately portray his vast knowledge. Green commences his attack my immediately mentioning the backbone of American principles, “...who hearts burns the love of country, of freedom, and of civil and religious toleration.” This instills desire into African Americans to strive in favor of fighting the Civil War, to protect their rights as African Americans and as people.
The loyalty, the belief, the strength that we each bring to this effort will guide America and to all those who serve it. The world will shine from the fire that we create. Kennedy encourages, if you are citizens of the world, or citizens of America, hold us to the same high standards as we hold for you. He then closes with “let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God's work must truly be our own.” (107) The most memorable thing to come from this speech was Kennedy’s most famous quote, which has resonated throughout the history of America, “And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.”
Proud to be an American Journal “America the Beautiful.” This song, even more than “The Star-Spangled Banner,” encapsulates what I love about being an American. “Oh beautiful for spacious skies…for purple mountain’s majesties…America, America, God shed His grace on thee/And crown thy good with brotherhood/From sea to shining sea.” I’ll take that over bombs any day. An American to me is someone who is willing to fight for and defend our country, someone who will fly our flag high, without any type of indignity, someone who is honest and cares for the welfare of our people. Most of all, an American has to have pride and faith in all that our country does, participating in activities that can only improve us as a unified nation. I am
The Lone Ranger is for kids and wimps. Whether it takes place during the Civil War or in the present day, I'm talking about shows for adults with beer-drinking gunslingers – real cowboys. The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp is based on history, and it ended in 1961 with the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral; and although most of its cast is fictional, Gunsmoke proves that not even Dodge City, Kansas is safe without Marshal Matt Dillon.
