A movie clip of this song
Watch Elvis singing Poor Boy in this movie clip from Love Me Tender.
The movie was originally intended to be a straight acting role for Elvis, but due to the popularity of the single Love Me Tender and his manager Colonel Tom Parker's desire to promote Presley's films with a soundtrack and vice versa, four songs were added to the film.
Instead of a full long-playing album soundtrack for the movie, the four songs appearing in the film were released as an extended-play (EP), seven-inch 45 RPM record on RCA Records, and were:
- Love Me Tender
- Let Me
- Poor Boy
- We're Gonna Move
