    Excellent Article On Movie Songs

    This goes back to March, so some of you have probably read it already. But here we go:

    http://www.elvis.com.au/presley/elvi...e_movies.shtml

    I stumbled on it after listening to "All I Needed Was The Rain" and wondering just who else cared for said-song. Five minutes after searching on Google and there was my answer.

    I'm so glad I read that article because it made me realise just how many GREAT movie songs Elvis did. "All I Needed Was The Rain" is a spectacular vocal, and as the author of that article noted, could have sustained an entire album if Elvis had only explored the strange bluesy/country hybrid sound a little further. Based on that article's recommendation, I then sought out "Summer Kisses, Winter Tears" and was again struck by the power and delicacy of Elvis' vocal. Some of these movie songs rank - or should rank - amongst Elvis' finest work. I completely agree with the author: they need more exposure. Only then will the myth that every movie song stank and that Elvis recorded nothing of value in those sessions be well and truly eradicated.
