The soundtrack includes seven songs composed expressly for the movie Loving You from writers contracted to Elvis Presley Music and Gladys Music, the publishing companies owned by Presley and his manager, Colonel Tom Parker. An eighth song intended for but not appearing in the movie, “Don't Leave Me Now”, was included on the album, and a new recording would appear on the soundtrack for his next film, Jailhouse Rock. The previously released material comprises both sides of the single taken from the soundtrack, Presley's number one hit “(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear” backed with the film's title track, “Loving You”. Producer Hal B. Wallis liked “Teddy Bear” so much that he insisted it be included in the movie. Songs were added to bring up the running time of the album, including the swing-era favorite “Blueberry Hill”, which had been a big hit for Fats Domino in 1956. “Have I Told You Lately That I Love You?” had been done previously by the Sons of the Pioneers, as well as Bing Crosby with The Andrews Sisters. Cole Porter's “True Love”, written for the 1956 musical film High Society, also made the album, either to feature a straightforward romantic song, or to give Presley and The Jordanaires an excuse for some close harmony singing. The practice of RCA augmenting soundtrack recordings with extra songs from non-soundtrack studio sessions to bring up the running time of the LP to acceptable lengths would become a commonplace occurrence with Presley soundtracks through the 1960s.
