    This is a fairly generic rock and roll sand with a slight Hawaiian flavour. It isn't bad at all, but Elvis had set the bar very high with an already enviable series of songs and albums behind him. Not a bad track, but certainly not an album stand out.

    I think this thread is going to either go very fast or very slowly as we move into the mid 60s.

    well I will be going the same pace, but perhaps it may feel more slow :)

    Yes, but what I suspect there may be less comments, so it will go fast. But yes, it will feel slow because of a lot of "dead air". Side two of Blue Hawaii has given a hint of what I mean.

    Yea i know, it's bizarre isn't it .... I haven't seen jailhouse rock and a lot of others either.
    I know I have seen Love me tender, Loving You and King Creole ... not really sure what else to be honest

    I just watched it again a couple of months ago. It's lightweight but has great production values and it's fun to hear the songs in context with their scenes. Moonlight Swim is good fun and I like how they use the female actors as the back-up singers. And I do realize I'm biased but strangely enough, I don't feel the same way about Paradise, Hawaiian Style.

    I do intend to watch the movies, or a good deal of them at some point. I used to love Elvis movies, but I just watched the free ones back when television used to show them ... In Australia in the seventies, when I was a puppy, they always had a specific time of year where Saturday at noon meant an Elvis movie :)

    I was hoping for a Blu Ray since some of his films are already available in that format but as of now, no go. The DVD runs about 5 bucks on Amazon. Good deal.

    I'm thinking about those. I looked at a couple of boxes, but the movies in those seem to be a real mixed bag

    I have seen all his movies. The one that took me the longest to see was On Tour when it was put in theatres for a limited time around 2012. I have only seen a handful in the theatres. Most I've seen on TV back in the 60s and early 70s under the hateful eye of my step-father. He hated Elvis and hated me. So, he felt obligated not to let me watch them in peace, so he could criticize every aspect about them as I watched.

    I do remember my aunt taking me to Jailhouse Rock in the theatre. And my mom and I saw Paradise Hawaiian Style together. She got a double whammy as she loved Elvis as well as James Shigeta .

    I love Can't Help Falling In Love. I even downloaded the sheet music for it so I could play it on piano. Very beautiful song, and one of the few from his movies he seemed to enjoy singing in concert when he returned to the live stage.

    Ok, this is not my favorite song but I have always wanted to make a CD exclusively of Elvis' songs related to food, drink and eating. Let's see: 1. Tutti Fruiti
    2. Hot Dog
    3. Crawfish
    4. Ito Eats
    5. Margarita.....
    Help me out here y'all!

    Catching up a bit here...

    No More is one of those perfect little songs that are sprinkled rather generously through Elvis' catalogue. It may not have changed the world, but it's a sweet song that Elvis really elevates with his operatic treatment of the melody.

    I have to step up and defend Ito Eats. Yes, it's silly, but it's also a heck of a lot of fun. It's a catchy song that I never tire of listening to, unlike the dull title track, or the forgettable Hawaiian Sunset.

    Ku-U-I-Po doesn't quite work for me in its Blue Hawaii incarnation, but the post-Aloha show version is absolutely stunning. The key change does wonders, as does Elvis' more committed vocal.

    I agree with everyone who said that His Latest Flame/Little Sister is a strong contender for Elvis' finest single. The 80s remix of Little Sister is particularly great, sounding nasty in all the right ways (it's on at least two CDs that I know of: Return Of The Rocker and The Top Ten Hits). As for His Latest Flame, Del Shannon's version gets closer to the (tortured) heart of the lyric, and the version of Rusholme Ruffians on the Smiths' Rank album makes me wish that they'd taken a crack at a full rendition of the song, but you can't beat Elvis' version as a pure pop record. That having been said, take 1 is one of the more interesting alternates in the Elvis canon, as it starts off with a rather dreamy acoustic sound that may well have made for an even better final master.

    There's certainly nothing else like it that I've ever heard! For a real mind-trip, listen to Townes Van Zandt's rendition, wherein he adopts a dirge-like tempo and pretends (?) to take the lyrics 100% seriously.
