Although they never met "The King", the Pomus (Jerome Felder) -Shuman team wrote 25 songs for Elvis Presley including "Viva Las Vegas". We feature Mort's version here.
One of his best pictures, "Viva Las Vegas" was a 1964 Elvis movie with co-star Ann-Margret. The song was released as the B side to "What'd I Say" and hit the top thirty. The actual soundtrack recording wasn't issued until years after the movie.
