Egypt was the most powerful and wealthiest civilizations in the world.

Most important are the lead vocals by Elvis, but the guitar, drum set, and piano, along with other instruments, are also important to the sound. The chorus, “I'm in love/I'm all shook up/Mm mm mm, mm, yay, yay, yay” is particularly catchy because of the way it sounds.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
