Instead, a completely different song written by the team Giant / Baum / Kaye was recorded for the film and eventually became the title song for both the movie and the album. Winfield Scott found the original acetate in the basement of his New Jersey home and BMG / RCA added the track to the album “Elvis, 2nd to None”.
