Gurdip and Justin sit down with the digital version of the soundtrack album for Baz Luhrmann's "Elvis," to explore the remixes, covers and remasters of classic Elvis recordings, as well as finding as many musical Easter Eggs as they can.
Then, Song of the Week makes a grand return! Inspired by a similarly-themed track from the movie's soundtrack, Gurdip picks "I'm Gonna Get Back Home Somehow" from 1962's "Pot Luck" album. Justin, on the other hand, inspired by what the soundtrack left OFF, goes right back into the deep end of the pool to not only spotlight Elvis's 1967 cover of the country classic "Just Call Me Lonesome," but also discuss the influence of its songwriter, Rex Griffin, on early rockabilly and rock and roll.
