    The title track is one that I always skip (which is a rarity as far as Elvis music goes for me). It seems like the entire song is one long monotonous chant comprised of a single word. Absolutely terrible.

    I Don't Wanna Be Tied is pretty fluffy and rock-lite, and it's not a song that I ever say, "Hey, I'd like to hear that right now!", but I do enjoy it whenever I play it.

    I like I Don't Want To Be Tied too. I guess it was originally submitted for Kid Galahad and rejected.

    He sang it at least once late in his career 76-77 don’t remember the exact show date. But the version was pretty terrible, It seemed like it wasn’t rehearsed and a spur of the moment type thing they played so it deserves some slack

    Yes indeed, I think that you referring to the sample @PacificOceanBlue posted and we both think it was probably a spur of the moment fan request as it sounds pretty unrehearsed.

    The irony is that as lackluster as it is, the off-the-cuff performance of "Return To Sender" is more inspired than the majority of the standard set-list from the 1976 period.

    I Don't Want To

    Here we have a gentle country/crooner style song. The start almost sounds like a sitar, but I think there's just a little fret buzz going on.
    The chord arrangement is quite beautiful and Elvis puts in a very controlled and beautiful vocal. We get a key modulation just over halfway through.
    A really nice mellow song.
    Personally I find the first half of the is album at least, to be very good, but I am guessing I'm close to being on my own with that :).

    We'll Be Together

    This track starts with a really nice acoustic guitar run and moves into a really nice Latin American swing. It still amazes me that in the early sixties Elvis had a ton of stuff drawing from these influences. My knowledge of the period isn't good enough to know if this was common, but certainly Elvis seemed to really like the styling of this music and did a very good job of putting it across. The backing vocals on this track are by "The Amigos", and again I am unsure if they are a specific vocal group or just a name that comes from studio sessions, as these things do.
    This is a nice uptempo love song that has a really cool feel and, for me at least, adds a little spice to this album. For me this is another good song on this album, which, again, to me, is better than some seem to feel..... but that's not unusual, I am a bit of a weirdo :)

    Here we have a love song through and through. Starting off with a slow and gentle feel, with the "ooo, ooo " backing vocals often associated with these type of love songs. It is a very nicely arranged song and gets a little semi-Latin percussion that again just gives it a little more. The recording and arrangement of this track are really extremely good.

    Generally speaking, I enjoy the silly soundtrack songs far more than I enjoy the ballads. At least the former tend to be upbeat, whilst songs like I Don't Want To and A Boy Like Me, A Girl Like You just plod along. We'll Be Together is better, but the start-stop arrangement kills any momentum that it builds up.

    The soundtrack gets much better from here on out, imo!

    Yes, Elvis brings out his rock voice for just a little fire around 1:25. Well there ain't nothin' I conceal...

    This is such an unusual song, or it seems to me at least. We have essentially a semi country, semi oriental traditional, love song, and Elvis phrasing the wirds as though he isn't fluent in English.
    The song is actually very sweet, and certainly not bad, just a little unusual. One can only assume, having not seen the movie, that he gets a crush on a Japanese girl.

    I agree; it's quite unlike any other Elvis song, and it's very melodically appealing. The lyrics are silly, but they've never bothered me, probably because Elvis' vocal is so convincing. I doubt that any other singer would have been able to sell it so effectively. It's a track that I have a lot of time for.

    Here is the scene. If you look up Ginny Tiu (the older of the two in this scene, the younger is Elizabeth) on YouTube you will see she was a child prodigy pianist. Here two sisters and brother also were musicians and they formed a band. Their talent rivals The Jackson Five and The Osmonds, and certainly her individual musicianship tops the all. Because Ginny Tiu had prior commitments her sister Vicky was cast in It Happened At The World's Fair. I am pretty sure it is Chinese.

    Here is but one adorable TV appearance, even younger than when she was in the Elvis movie. She played for Presidents!
