I like that song too, but "Shopping around" is allways the first song that comes to my mind when thinking about the movie.

The problem with that is, "Can't Help Falling In Love" aside, the massive success of the film and soundtrack LP provided management with a powerful commercial argument to create more of the same. "G.I. Blues" did very well too, but not on the scale of "Blue Hawaii."

G.I.Blues soundtrack is absolutely awful. It´s full of s..., just like Elvis told to Priscilla. It´s amazing this went to #1. But that´s the power of Elvis. Indeed, Pocketful Of Rainbows and Doin´ The Best I Can are the only songs you can enjoy from this horrible soundtrack.
