See these Ivy frat boys? Elvis uses his fists to wipe the smug looks off their faces.
After seeming to romanticize fraternity life in our last post, we thought we’d balance the scales by romanticizing fraternity jerks who get punched out by a greaser from the wrong side of the tracks.
Such a greaser is played by Elvis Presley in the 1964 movie “Roustabout.” Today is the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s birthday, and so we honor him with the opening number from the film, “Poison Ivy League,” which, not surprisingly, doesn’t go over too well with the college boys pictured above.
Take special note of the lyrics. If you can shed any light on the line about lemonades and panty raids, please leave an explanatory comment. — CC
