There's only three I can tolerate... Crawfish, The Lady Loves Me and you forgot to mention, Today, Tomorrow and Forever recorded for Viva Las Vegas.

I don't really care for all the studio created duets.

I prefer the duets Elvis did with Ann-M. when she was singing in the studio with Elvis at the same time.

By the way, you missed the created duets Elvis did with Shelly fabares in Girl happy. spring fever.

Shelley doesn't sing on "Meanest GIrl in Town." She just dances.

"Crawfish" heads the way by a mile followed by the A/M songs.

First Crawfish" after The Lady Loves Me and Petunia, The Gardener's Daughter... ::rocks

The Lady Loves Me
You're The Boss
Today, Tomorrow And Forever
:D

Oh, and a honorable mention to "Crawfish"... :wink:


Although, not a duet, you could add "Spring Fever" to it (and since two girls are singing with Elvis on "Earth Boy", it neither is practically a duet).


Not to be negative again, but I can tell you the three I h-a-t-e the most :twisted: :
Mexico - with Larry Domasin (Fun in Acapulco) ("it's so nice hirrrrr... oh what size hirrrr" - uaaargh!)
Scratch My Back - with Marianna Hill (Paradise Hawaiian Style) (just plainly horrible, shut up and let Elvis sing!)
There Ain't Nothing Like a Song - with Nancy Sinatra (Speedway) (no further comment, we all know Nancy can't sing)

If you can forget the audio, the visual of Scratch My Back with the delectable Marianne Hill was a sight worth seeing.................

Well, that's all a matter of taste. I'd preferred Julie Parrish back then.

The only duets that ever seemed to work with Elvis were Kitty White on Crawfish and You're The Boss, The Lady Loves Me and Today, Tomorrow And Forever with Ann Margaret. The rest were throwaways.

Wow, ElvisTheKid, I was going to start my list by saying "You're The One That I Want" from Grease until I realized you were referring only to Elvis. Checking your list I'm struggling to find a good Elvis duet but there is no doubting that "Crawfish" is quality.

Good to see that clip, Jimmy ! I was looking forward to seeing how they would do the ending ('the gentleman's all wet') - but they chickened out !

My favourite duet to watch is 'Signs of The Zodiac'. I rather like the song - it's kinda 'offbeat' - and, wow, Marlyn Mason's legs !!!!!

I can't stand any off the ann margret duets with elvis........cause i cant stand her singin voice...very annoying to my ears.....
She ruins the very good songs ....

Crawfish is very good ...and so is "spring fever".

By the way..who sings the female voice in the movie version of "happy ending"...its not the actress....or is it?
