There's something I never knew. Here it's pronounced shassy.

You're right there. It's awful.

Fabulous
The song was written by Harry Land – John Sheldon aka Bernie Lowe – Karl Man; it was a hit in 1957 for Charlie Grace (Cameo 107) and Steve Lawrence (Coral 61834).
According to the book Elvis – His life from A to Z (Fred Worth & Steve Tamerius) may have recorded the song.
I think it’s only a rumour. There are no documents or another proof about a recording in the 50’s.

Girls girls girls
The song was written for the movie Girls girls girls (Blackwell-Scott) – although it was Colonel Parker's favorite it was rejected in the pre-selection.

Colonel Parker wasn't interested how a movie was made; that Hollywood's business. Colonel Parker was interested in good financial deals with a lot of money. $$$$.

Very sad really, A good manager would have been interested in seeing the other business side of things..

In one way Colonel Parker was a good manager/businessman and made the best deals everywhere for Elvis. On the other hand the trics and behaviour of Colone Parker were not good for Elvis' career. But you can't blame Colonel Parker for everything what went wrong in Elvis' career. Elvis was "too lazy" to arrange his own career as long as the money came in by millions.

I agree C Snow, I have read many books over the years and piecing information together from these books elvis was part to blame, He should have been more vocal in touring europe. I think it would have been a great stepping stone for him and maybe helped him on the road to a better recovery from his addications, Instead it ened up with his demise.

Now is the hour (Maori farewell song *)
The song is written by Maewa Kaihan – Clement Scott – Dorothy Stewart.

The song is often mentioned in magazines – books as instrumental track recorded on 27 july 1965 for the movie Paradise Hawaiian style. There are no documents about this recording and the song is probably rejected in the pre-selection.
The song was a big hit in 1948 with recordings by:
08-11-47 – Bing Crosby (Decca 24279);
00-11-47 – Eddy Howard (Majestic 1191);
00-11-47 – Grace Fields (London 110);
22-11-47 – Charlie Spivak (RCA 202704);
00-03-48 – Margaret Whiting (Capitol 15024).

* The Maori’s originate from New Zealand!!
