Elvis loved Mexican or Spanish-flavoured music and you can hear it in this magical song. It's a moviesong and the sound and mixing could've been better, but the King makes this a joy to listen to. There's also a version by Les Negresses Vertes that's worth looking for.

A much more satisfying enterprise than the pasty and paltry soundtrack to It Happened at the World's Fair, though, in spots, Elvis sounds just a tad disgusted.

To wit, a masterpiece written by the great Don Roberston, "Margarita", in which Elvis applies his art in such a way to temporarily sway his most Sun Records-oriented fans.

I bought this Elvis film soundtrack more for nostalgic reasons rather than actual song quality as my dad used to have the original vinyl LP. The songs here compared with the ones found on the brilliant 'GI Blues' soundtrack haven't dated so well and appear weak in comparison. The only tracks that I find myself humming at times are the title track, 'Marguerita' on which Elvis shows his amazing vocal range and the brilliant bonus track 'Love Me Tonight'.
