January 8th marks what would have been Elvis Presley's 80th birthday. A yearlong celebration of his music is planned.

The King died on August 16, 1977 but he still has rabid fans, young and old. 

Today, a new website called ElvisTheMusic.com went live, featuring a comprehensive online database of everything fans love about Elvis.

Graceland will also livestream an 80th birthday celebration for the singer today and Priscilla Presley is scheduled to appear at the event.

The singer's The Complete '60s Albums Collection Vol. 1 has been released onto iTunes. The set highlights all the LPs Presley recorded between 1960 and 1965 with newly mastered sound for the digital medium.

On top of all that, you can now buy two of Presley's private planes, the Lisa Marie and Hound Dog II. Julien's Auctions will auction off the aircrafts on February 2nd. The planes have been parked outside Graceland for over 30 years. They no longer fly but both have the original interiors. 

Below are some iconic Elvis photos to remind you just why the King captured the world's heart.
