You may not have the urge to do the clam, but there are lots of hidden gems scattered throughout Elvis's movie soundtracks. Let's find 100.

Do they have to be Elvis songs? Because I think it's kind of nuts that this didn't get commercially released outside of the film until 30+ years later and only then in a huge Bear Family box.

2. Ann-Margret: "My Rival" (from Viva Las Vegas)

The only non-Elvis song/performance to appear on an Elvis studio album (and makes me wish that Elvis had been able to go into the studio w/Lee Hazlewood)

3. Nancy Sinatra: "Your Groovy Self" (from Speedway)

I'm a big fan of "Hard Knocks" (from Roustabout.) My band used to cover that one.

I sometimes have an urge to do the clam, too.
