Blue Hawaii was a great film, huge at the box-office, and massive selling on the music charts.
The movie itself grossed $14 million, the album hit #1 for 20wks in the US and #1 for 18 wks in Britain.
It is ranked 2nd on Billboard's top #1 albums between 1960-1969 and #9 on Billboards all time hot 100 albums, plus beingh the 9th longest album ever at #1 in Britain.
The amazing song Can't Help Falling in Love hit #2 in America and #1 in Britain, its the best song on the CD. Rock a Hula Baby is also very good, a fun twist style track.
No More is one of the best, its bordering on operatic, and of course Hawaiian Wedding Song is a favourite, although I prefer the live version from Elvis in Concert.
Some of the songs are out of context on an album, they are at home on the screen: this is hardly Elvis in Memphis, Moody Blue or Thats the Way it is, but it does compliment the film and has some fun alternate takes as a bonus.
