    Re: Favorite Elvis movie songs

    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)
    YOU LOOKIN' FOR TROUBLE? YOU CAME TO THE RIGHT PLACE.

    Re: Favorite Elvis movie songs

    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.

    Just pretend, I'm holding you, and whispering things soft and low.
    And think of me, how it's gonna be and just pretend I didn't go

    I toally agree 100% with you David

    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
