It's Gotta Be " Burning Love"
It Was Current And Went on To Do Very Well In The Charts.It's Not The Best Performed Song In The Movie But I Regard It As Very Important Because, It Show's Us Elvis Could Get New Rock Material And Turn It Into A Radio Friendly Hit.He Still Had It, It's Just A Shame That Not Many Rockers Were Left For The Next 5 Years

The song that best exemplifies "Elvis On Tour" is "Johnny B. Goode."

The Chuck Berry classic that begins the documentary, which won a Golden Globe in January 1973, is as much Elvis' story as anyone's. The film's directors basically spend the next 90 minutes telling us how this story came to be.

And what might your answer be? "Don't Be Cruel" again?

I would say ''Promised land'' because it's a song about traveling around the U.S. and Elvis On tour films Elvis touring various places.

Promised Land does not feature in Elvis On Tour, for obvious reasons.

To me it's "Seperate ways"... at the time it was indeed a new road in Elvis' life.
