I think most of the movie soundtracks are underrated. For example I ve just been listening to "So close yet so far from paradise" and didn't realise how good this song actually is.

I agree, jon burrows! It's my favourite song from "Harum Scarum"! That and "Kismet". I didn't really like the movie but these two songs are brilliant...

Tom elvis did this song justice. it makes you feel like you want to hug him and could about cry. that is the one song i can just picture all the scenes. he never got his dues. not enough, while he was still with us.
for hours elvis you are gentle on my mind

True love Travels is one of my favorite songs, I love Bob Dylan's authorship. Dylan is fabulous, I only wish Elvis could have sang all his songs!

Elvis' uniqueness lies in the fact that his interpretation of any song paints pictures that stay with us long after the song has played out. [Including those "awful" movie songs some folks love to put down.]

I agree and explains it better than anything else.
He made each song his own; no matter who sang it first.

One song that I have always thought was very underrated is Blue Moon.....even today it still has a fresh,magical quality to it....the vocals on it are just amazing as far as I`m concerned........In my opinion it is one of the most beautiful things anybody ever put on record.

There's so many underrated songs, some great ones' have been listed here! (y) Thanks! :)

I think new fans should also be exposed to more than just the well-known songs, they are missing out on some real great music! (y)

Some of the songs I would list are:

Just Pretend
Love Me, Love The Life I Lead
What Now My Love

Too many to mention, I agree! :P
