Once Upon a Time In America

Springfield, Illinois
Summer 1956.

It was a family dinner at a all-purpose restaurant adjacent to one of those AAA approved motels on Route 66. I heard the most amazing song coming from the jukebox. It was the kind of song that bristles the hair up on the back of your neck . The Notre Dame Victory March was the only song that had caused such a maelstrom in my adrenal cortex until this musical moment.

"Don't Be Cruel" Elvis Presley RCA Victor 47-6540
