Follow that Dream is perhaps my fave movie song, although not really a forgotten one. Some less high profile ones I like are:

A boy like me, a girl like you
I don't wanna be tied
So close, yet so far
You're time hasn't come yet baby
All I needed was the rain

Let's Forget About The Stars comes to mind as does Summer Kisses, Winter Tears....Wild In The Country.......I'm not sure I Got Lucky fits that category but I love it.....I have to agree with So Close Yet So Far (From Paradise); Let Us Pray also comes to mind....I am sure I am forgetting a few.

Because Elvis (as The King of Rock'n Roll) received (and still receives) so much criticism on his movies, the fans seem to be embarrased by them. And because those sessions for the moviesoundtracks replaced sessions of the regular (and mostly stronger) studioalbums.

Many of the soundtracksongs aren't near as good as tracks from albums like 'Elvis Is Back', 'Pot Luck' or 'Something For Everybody', most of the times they were still entertaining. And there even are quite a few very good songs recorded for the soundtracks.

These are (in my opinion) underrated gems:
* All That I Am
* Almost
* Can't Help Falling In Love
* Change Of Habits
* Clean Up Your Own Backyard
* Dixieland Rock
* Edge Or Reality (almost 60's psychodelic)
* Have a Happy
* I Need Somebody To Lean On
* Let Us Pray
* Let Yourself Go
* Spinout
* They Remind Me Too Much of You
* Tonight Is Allright For Love
* Trouble

and many more...

These songs are strong enough to be on normal studioalbums, or be released as single. Great quality...

I'll just name a few: I Need Sombody To Lean On; Angel; Kissin' Cousins;
Tender Feeling; Spinout; Am I Ready?; Home Is Where The Heart Is; Hard Knocks. I could go on..............

GREAT QUESTION GEORDIE!!! (y)

In my opinion, as with most everyone else here, there are quite a few underrated movie songs that deserve more attention than they receive!

Some of the underrated movie songs, in my opinion, are:

* ALMOST
* CHANGE OF HABIT
* LET'S FORGET ABOUT THE STARS (although I have to say on this one that I am glad they didn't include it in CHARRO...considering CHARRO was a serious Western, this song just wouldn't have been appropriate for inclusion in the film in my opinion, despite how pretty it is!)

* THE GIRL I NEVER LOVED
* HARD LUCK (what a great blues song!)
* IF YOU THINK I DON'T NEED YOU
* SO CLOSE, YET SO FAR (FROM PARADISE)
* DRUMS OF THE ISLANDS
* I'LL BE BACK
* CITY BY NIGHT
* ALMOST IN LOVE
* EDGE OF REALITY
* POCKETFUL OF RAINBOWS

I'm sure there are others I am forgetting right off hand, but these are a few of my favorite underrated movie songs!!!

TCB!

I Slipped, I Stumbled, I Fell is a favorite of mine I haven't seen mentioned yet.

I first heard the non-movie version on a cassette of Separate Ways, I guess, and I've really dug it ever since. It is a highly underrated song, equally deserving of acclaim as many of the '50s chart-toppers, in my mind.

It's so catchy! The movie version is appropriate for the situation, but the other really rocks!

Ahhhh yes....the unforgettable Camden album SEPARATE WAYS with that goofy looking cover of Elvis standing in the middle of the highway just waiting to be run over!!! :P

Not to mention the embarassing tracklisting for that album, with 2 of Elvis' greatest ballads from the 1970's mixed in with a bunch of lesser known songs. (I'm certainly not knocking the other songs on the SEPARATE WAYS album by any means...but SEPARATE WAYS and ALWAYS ON MY MIND certainly deserved better treatment than they got being stuck on a budget album!) Almost as embarassing as the BURNING LOVE AND HITS FROM HIS MOVIES VOL. 2 album from Camden (exactly when were SANTA LUCIA or I LOVE ONLY ONE GIRL hits for Elvis? Must have missed those on the charts!) :blink:

GREAT CALL on I SLIPPED, I STUMBLED, I FELL though, buddy!!! A GREAT SONG FOR SURE!!! :cool:

TCB!

If I confine it just to my favorites from the '60s movies, not counting the great studio songs used in Tickle Me or the excellent "Rubberneckin'," there're still a lot of songs. Even then I skipped many that I like a lot -- the soundtracks to Blue Hawaii and Fun In Acapulco, for example, are of a pretty unformly high standard and very enjoyable (beautiful lesser-known ballads like "Hawaiian Sunset," "Island Of Love," etc, etc, etc). Here's my list, including some songs recorded for the soundtrack but cut from the film:

Shoppin' Around
Doin' The Best I Can
G.I. Blues
Wooden Heart
Pocketful Of Rainbows
Summer Kisses, Winter Tears
Flaming Star

Aloha Oe
No More
Slicin' Sand
Blue Hawaii
Hawaiian Wedding Song
Steppin' Out Of Line
Can't Help Falling In Love

Swing Down, Sweet Chariot
Almost
Charro!
Change Of Habit

Even if you're pickier than I am -- and these really are my favorites, meaning that there are plenty more that I like a lot -- there's a fair amount of good material there. Would I have preferred that Elvis' career had gone a different way in the '60s? Of course. But what he left us from the movie years still bears plenty of gems, albeit many are mere echoes of what he might have otherwise done. It'[s what we've got, and it's possible to greatly enjoy much of it. The films themselves, of course, have by now achieved a legitimacy that was more lacking before, given that so many of us grew up with them and they have collectively become almost a cult phenomenon.

Wow! You're so right... I guess Young Dreams, Almos In Love, Today, Tomorrow and Forever (with Ann-Margret) and many others should receive more atention. I'd like to add "Lover Doll".
