Elvis Presely – Under Rated Songs

By | Feb 19, 2009

Polk Salad Annie – This Tony Joe White song was only recorded by Elvis live, but it’s a song that with it’s roots in the south could have been a big hit from Elvis had it been released. Albums: On Stage – February 1970 and Elvis As Recorded At Madison Square Garden.

Change of Habit – Many of the songs that Elvis recorded for his movies have been considered run of the mill quickly recorded throw away songs. But listening to this one shows that some of them were well worth a listen, even outside of the movie. – Album: Let’s Be Friends.

Bridge Over Troubled Water – This Simon and Garfunkel song seemed to have been recorded by nearly everyone in the early 70’s and Elvis performed it on his 1970 concerts. Album: That’s the Way It Is

Too Much Monkey Business – Another of the movie songs. This has a real nice beat and could have easily been done as a remix similar to A Little Less Conversation. Album: Elvis Singing Flaming Star and Others;

You’ll Never Walk Alone – All of Elvis’s Gospel songs are done with feelings, but this one just seem to pull at the heart.

Kentucky Rain – This song was released as a single in 1970 and many times it is forgotten as one of his hits, but the song should really be considered one of his best from the 1968-1971 period. Album: Elvis Golden Award Vol. 5
