Most Underrated Elvis Presley Songs

The Top Ten Most Underrated Elvis Presley Songs

1 The Girl of My Best Friend

His voice is so classic, and this song oozes sadness and heartbreak so well

Probably the most underrated Elvis song ever! - Irina2932

I love the lyrics and the pace of the song.

Finest. Voice of all time

2 Kiss Me Quick

I adore many many many Elvis songs but this one always was my favorite. - Irina2932

Great Song! His voice was magic.

This song from elvis is one of the most unradet song from him

3 Follow that Dream

I adore Elvis performance of this song and the way he changes his vocal. Looks amazing - Irina2932

All time favorite, just a great tune, incredible delivery
by Elvis and the Jordanaires.

4 (You're The) Devil in Disguise

Definitely one of Elvis' greatest songs ever. Just wonderful performance - Irina2932

Ehm this song is ok, but why isn't there IN THE GHETTO on the list?

5 Mystery Train

Not only an underrated Elvis song but probably one of the best performances of any singer in the history of pop music.

Young elvis song MASTERPIECE

6 Wooden Heart

Sweet and very powerful track - Irina2932

So simple, so sweet, so sincere. This song from GI Blues is so innocent and I love to song it myself.


7 Tutti Frutti

This great track was as good as "Jailhouse Rock" - Irina2932

8 Blue Moon of Kentucky

Love it. I would like to add the Elvis songs "My Boy", It's Midnight and Never Again.

Best rendition of this song ever sung. I'm from KY and it means a lot that my favorite singer sang about my state.

9 If I Can Dream

Better than Jailhouse Rock and Heartbreak Hotel? In my opinion, yes. Better than Hound Dog? It's close, real close - BeeBlue

Of course, one of his most powerful songs.

My favourite song ever!

Next to Dixieland, this was his most compelling performance.

10 I Want You I Need You I Love You

I do love this song, however, the main reason I am adding it to the list is because, when I first visited Memphis in 2009 with my friend, it reminds me of walking from the Heartbreak Hotel toward Graceland and hearing the song belting out from Sirius Radio on Graceland Plaza. Sweet sweet memories.

Can't believe how much this song is underrated. Definitely deserves more attention

This is beautiful love Elvis all over again.

Should be in top 3 according to me.

The Contenders

11 Marguerita

This song is so underrated that even this list does not know it. So do some listening. It's a film song released in 1963. It was copied in an Indian film. Just shows the great vocal capabilitiesof Mr. Presley. Aa

This song is so underrated that even this list din't contain it once. Beautiful song from a film and just shows what a great singer Mr. Presley were.

Very good song.For a weird reason was the bigest hit for the 60s in Greece

12 Tomorrow Never Comes

"You can hear his soul

13 Milky White Way

This is most underrated song ever.

14 Promised Land

Uhh... Men In Black anyone? Tunnel scene with the little red button. Might wanna put on a seatbelt.

15 Mary In the Morning

Such a beautiful love song

The way he sings this song is beautiful.

16 Good Luck Charm
17 (Marie's the Name of) His Latest Flame

A great story and undoubtedly catchy.

I love this song

18 Treat Me Nice

Kind of sounds like Teddy bear but is a very catchy B-side of Jailhouse Rock

One fo the catchiest tunes ever written and sung perfectly by the King

19 Kentucky Rain

Beautiful song I can even imagine the story told. Kentucky Rain and Tomorrow is a Long Time are his most underrated songs.

I live in KY and find it being played on the radio when it rains. The back-up singers add just enough to Elvis vocals to make this one of my favorites. Several years after Elvis, Ronnie Milsap had a similar dilemma in Smokey Mountain Rain trying to find his girl. That's also a great song.

20 Old Shep

Underrated it is a sad but beautiful song

21 In the Ghetto
22 It Hurts Me

Highly underrated especially his performance of it in the 1968 comeback special

Great track. A classic

I know! It's so good.

23 Rubberneckin'

When he sang this in Change of Habit he looked and sounded sexy as all get-out.

His most catchy song! I love it!

24 It's Over

I first heard him sing this over 35 yrs ago and it still pops in my head quite often

25 Early Morning Rain

Love the tempo of this song. It just keeps movin with such a natural transition into the verses. Love it.

Love Elvis' version of Gordon Lightfoot's hit.

Love this...makes me cry

26 The Ghetto
27 Got a Lot o' Livin' to Do
28 You'll Think of Me

B-Side to Suspicious Minds.

29 You'll Never Walk Alone

Perfect religious and uplifting song for any point in one's life.

30 When My Blue Moon Turns to Gold Again

This Song is great and has some kind of nostalgic feeling that I can't describe. Such a shame this song gets overlooked often.

Thank you Elvis (from France)

31 We Call on Him

Actually, I'm listening to this one now and I feel all this hits me again and again and I'm not even religious! What a great performer Elvis was! This voice moves me so all the time. He is one of the few people that are not overrated. He was truly divine as a singer. He deserved all this admiration he received.

32 I'll Take You Home Again, Kathleen
33 Tomorrow Night
34 I've Lost You
35 An Evening Prayer
36 Fountain of Love

Very beautiful, romantic and underrated song. Amazingly beautiful vocals by Elvis, especially at the end of the song

Very Beautiful and romantic underrated song. Amazingly beautiful vocals by Elvis at the end of the song.

37 Big Love, Big Heartache
38 Anyone (Could Fall in Love with You)

Quite simply beautiful. Quite simply underrated.
Nice list. - Britgirl

39 Ask Me
40 No More
41 You Gave Me a Mountain

Elvis recorded the best version of this song!

42 Young and Beautiful

Especially important in his film Jailhouse Rock, since his co-star Judy Tyler was in a fatal car crash with her husband right after the movie was finished. The last song in the movie was this one. Elvis refused to watch the movie after her death.

One of the best songs of presley's career

43 Stranger In the Crowd

This lesser known Elvis song grabbed me the first time I ever heard it.

44 It's Now or Never
45 It's Easy for You

The other woman. This man knows that even though he has given up his family for her and has already been dumped by her for another man, that he'll take her back whenever she gives the word. Every word and note of this song blends with Elvis voice so perfectly that I can feel the resignation and deep sadness his love for her has cost him.

Beautiful song, one of my new favourites, his voice is very strong here

46 Edge of Reality

An unusual type of song for Elvis. His voice is top notch on this track and I wish more people could hear it. From the movie "Live a Little, Love a Little".


47 Return to Sender

Over the years I've found that a lot of people know and love this song. About 20 yrs ago I went to a party with a very diverse crowd. There was a karaoke machine and no one wanted to sing. I cranked it up and started singing Return To Sender and that was all it took to get the party started.

48 Love Letters
49 Tender Feeling

From his movie " Kissin' cousins". Not very well known ballad of Elvis, but one of my favorites.

50 Bossa Nova Baby

Energetic and fun.
