Just had to listen to Jesse Crying or Very sad

Not really my kind of thing but found this on the net which is pretty interesting along with some reference to 9/11 mentioned in a post somewhere

'Elvis Presley had a twin brother who died at birth, called Jesse. He would apparently often talk to his twin like he was there by his side and felt a lot of guilt that he'd survived while Jesse had died. The riff in the background is supposedly a distorted, skewed version of Jailhouse Rock and the line "I'm the only one left alive" is actually an Elvis quote as well as a pretty good idea of the sentiment about Jesse the song is trying to put out'.

I didn't know that - it certainly explains a lot!
