Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi impressed U.S. National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice with his knowledge of Elvis Presley songs at a dinner Tuesday.

"The prime minister is more familiar with American culture than I am," G-8 sources quoted Rice as telling Koizumi when he said that one of the a cappella gospel songs they heard over the dinner had been covered by the U.S. rock 'n' roll icon.
