I recommend a comparison with the pages of Keith Flynn before buying.

This is in no way, a collection of the "worst" movie songs ... Most of these are very enjoyable ... About the only one that I can see, that could be considered one of the worst, would have to be, Yoga is as Yoga Does .. I like the rest of them .... If you want a CD of the worst, you would have to include, Britches, A Cane and a High Starched Collar, Farewell Royal High School, Confidence, Barefoot Ballad, Dominic, and maybe a couple of others ... but, it is hard to find a bad movie song, because no matter how bad the song is, Elvis sounds great singing them ... :)

Something similar was released years ago, I won't repeat the title, but once you listened to it the whole concept backfired because actually it was a compilation of movie songs which were okay

For me 'It's A Wonderful World', 'Marguerita' and 'Wisdom Of The Ages' are highlights of their respective soundtracks. I really enjoy listening to these songs and they are definitely not among his worst movie songs. 'Yoga Is As Yoga Does' fits the description better and is possibly his worst studio recording officially released during his lifetime... (some might disagree however!)

Must be a huge joke 'worst movie songs' with the fabulous 5 star track Marguerita, and 4 star What'd I Say, Kismet (IMO),Little Egypt and I'll Take Love for starters. There are 4 or 5 others that I don't necessarily seek out on a regular basis but they are more than listenable.

Not all is good. But a few songs are fine to me.

Worst movie songs in who's opinion ?? Actually a very good set here ! Does include a few duck eggs but being alt takes makes this interesting... to me anyway ; )... Yep "She's a Machine is one seriously over looked tune, gritty and suggestive with great instrumentation !

Well, at least I myself I do like She´s a Machine, Hard knocks, It´s a Wonderful World, Little Egytp and Kismet.
