The voice behind the iconic 1960s recording of "Wild Thing" and the original "Love is All Around" died at his home in Andover, just a few miles down the road from our office.
Presley was a renowned expert on crop circles, the paranormal and UFOs, interests he could pursue after the success of Wet Wet Wet's cover version of his song "Love is all around" as used in the film "Four Weddings and Funeral".
So, what might we sing at his funeral? "Circle of Life" springs to mind for the crop circles, "You Raise Me up" for UFOs and "Over the Rainbow" to show how a hit by Wet Wet Wet can lead to a pot of gold!
RIP, Mr Presley, and certainly, Andover is a little less exciting for your passing.
