With Lyrics by Delores Fuller

Being in love with Ed Wood is a film buff's favorite thing about Delores Fuller, but we gossip hounds know that alone does not make a career. So for this writing, the fun Elvis Presley songs with lyrics written by Ms. Fuller for our movie enjoyment.....since its really the music that makes these films, its only fitting to honor Ms. Fuller in this way. 

"Kid Galahad" (1962) - The film with promise, a relaxed confident Elvis combines his talents in song, romance and athleticism creating a piece that should have been the jumping point for his acting career. He sings Fuller's 'I got Lucky' in his smooth southern way.   

"Girl Happy" (1965) - gotta love any song that gets Elvis to dance..'Do the Clam' doesn't have the basis to be a pop hit but fits perfectly in this com-rom that becomes  an Elvis standard film. 

"Roustabout" (1964) - My personal favorite, but that might be because of Barbara Stanwyck - she appears to pull a bit of acting chops out of Presley - the song 'Big Love Big Heartache' is a strong studio ballad perfect for Elvis fans.
