To CD King: Jailhouse Rock should be #1. Huh? I'm as big an Elvis fan as anyone, but no. "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" by Judy Garland is timeless/immortal(jmho).

JAILHOUSE ROCK should have been Number ONE as The Greatest Movie Song of All-Time. Looks like those at the Film Institute are music destitute!
