‘Blue Hawaii’ was Elvis’ 8th film, and on its release in 1961 became one of that year’s most successful titles at the box office. It remained one of the singer’s all-time favourite movies, and began a love affair with the island, which had become America’s 50th state in 1959. ‘Blue Hawaii’ was the usual Elvis mix of exotic locations, beautiful girls and lots of songs. The soundtrack of ‘Blue Hawaii’ did not disappoint – the sleeve boasting ’14 Great Songs’. The title track was a perfect introduction, while the Hawaiian setting meant that space was found for the atmospheric ‘Hawaiian Sunset’ and ‘Island of Love (Kauai)’. Room was also found for two other island-related songs – ‘Aloha Oe’ and ‘Hawaiian Wedding Song’, both of which had been hits for Bing Crosby back in the 1930s. But where ‘Blue Hawaii’ really scored for fans was the inclusion of the boisterous ‘Rock-A-Hula Baby’ and a song which would go on to become one of the singer’s best-loved ballads – ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’. Based in part on an 18th century French melody, for many years this became Elvis’ in-concert finale.
