    • “Young Dreams” is a great song, but, in addition to “As Long As I Have You,” there are a couple other King Creole deep cuts I would rate ahead of it – the title song and “Trouble.”

      I’m surprised “King Creole” wasn’t a single at some point, but “Hard Headed Woman” was a stronger choice in that it was not as tied to the context of the movie. Now, if only the excised footage of “Hard Headed Woman” would show up in the vaults and a release some day.
