I'm gonna stick with the '60s cuz I don't consider his '50s movie songs traditional Elvis "movie songs" as they were pretty much like the rock'n'roll hits he was churning out during that time.

I've narrowed it down to a top 10. Here they are:

1) Let Us Pray (Change Of Habit)
2) Follow That Dream (Follow That Dream)
3) Edge Of Reality (Live A Little, Love A Little)
4) Pocketful Of Rainbows (G.I. Blues)
5) Bossa Nova Baby (Fun In Acapulco)
6) King Of The Whole Wide World (Kid Galahad)
7) Viva Las Vegas (Viva Las Vegas)
8) What A Wonderful Life (Follow That Dream)
9) C'mon Everybody (Viva Las Vegas)
10) Wonderful World (Live A Little, Love A Little)

Pocketful of Rainbows
Because of Love
All I needed was the Rain
Relax
House that has Everything

Now then, the songs from Tickle Me, they weren't written for the movie, correct? which, IMO, explains, why they are so darn good, yet, the way they were marketed, they just didn't get the recognition they deserve - again, My Opinion.

I toally agree 100% with you David (y)

A good many of his film songs are highly underrated and rarely acknowledged.

Here's a few of my personal fav songs from the movies:

As Long As I Have You
Shoppin' Around
Steppin' Out Of Line
City By Night
Hard Knocks
Big Love, Big Heartache
Hey Little Girl
Almost
Edge Of Reality

I love a lot of E's movies songs and I love the fact that even though he didn't like doing the movies or the movie songs really, he still did them to perfection..if you close your eyes and listen to say.. All That I Am, They Remind Me Too Much of You..his voice is so pure...
