The universal appeal of The King

Apparently, the Prime Minister of Japan is a big Elvis fan.

Mainichi Daily News

Koizumi reached his peak after he started singing his old favorite, "I Want You, I Need You, I Love You." He wrapped his arm around the shoulder of Lisa-Marie, who had been standing beside him, and said, ""Hold me close, hold me tight."

He then put on a pair of Elvis's sunglasses, struck up a pose and played the ham for the U.S. media.

Bush, who prefers country music to Elvis, smiled as he watched over Koizumi's antics, saying that he hadn't realized how far the prime minister's adoration of Presley extended.
