Video revisit of Heartbreak Hotel with the Ghost of Elvis. If it doesn’t load, please look for the video here.

Well, I’ve got myself a room here
at the Heartbreak Hotel,
down at the end of Lonely Street
past the Third Mission well…
For I was just so very lonely, sugar,
right here oh so lonely,
I was so lonely that I died.

Other ghosts do wander
crying out in the gloom,
floating here and there across
the lobby and main room.
For they were just so very lonely, sugar,
in this place so lonely,
they were so lonely that they died.

You see I’m brokenhearted
and so my ghost just roams
here around this forlorn place
that I now call my home…
For I was just so very lonely, sugar,
oh so very lonely,
I was so lonely that I died.

The bellhop and the desk clerk
just shrug it off to Fate
because they’ve been here for so long
they can’t see past the gate.
For they are just so very lonely, sugar,
Heartbreak Hotel lonely,
they are so lonely since they died.

So when you come and see me
you’ll just drift right on by,
we’ll pass through space and time alone
without a word or sigh.
For we’ll just be so very lonely, sugar,
here we’ll be so lonely,
we’ll be so lonely once we die.

Sculpture features a woman’s torso caged in wire mesh with a nail through the heart and red blood spilling out onto her feather skirt. The digital version is darker and more surreal, in an ethereal state.

The Ghost of Elvis, with his immaculate hair and cool cat sunglasses, actually glows in the dark. Ken’s eerie impersonated tribute is sure to get audience attention and steal a bit of Barbie’s spotlight…
