The influence of Elvis Presley’s musical career has been widely speculated, however this research specifies in analysing his movement style and the direct influence he had upon society and subsequent performers. This research will aim to determine how Presley’s instinctive bodily movement influenced society and individuals. Illustrating previous research with opposing opinions surrounding the subject will permit verifiable conclusions to be made, and allow a justifiable outlook upon the discussion. By using video clips from Presley’s performing career a critical analysis of Presley’s movement whilst performing will be undertaken with reference to Adshead’s (1998) model of analysis. This study will demonstrated how Presley’s movement style, within his music performances, represented freedom for the audiences from post-war societies who had been repressed to control their instinctive will to express.
