writing credit[edit]

Does it make sense for us to credit Presley and Matson if it's undisputed that Darby (and Poulton) are the true authors? Or is it our policy to have our "writers" credit reflect the copyright credits? --Allen 01:28, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

some paragraphs[edit]

The material about Presley getting co-writing credits on other songs, and this happening in general is very interesting, but I think it belongs in another article. It could be expanded into an article itself, even. Bubba73 (talk), 20:45, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Agreed, so I deleted:
"(Of course, non–writers getting songwriting credit for pop songs has a long tradition. Johnny Mercer, writing in his unpublished autobiography about beginning songwriters in New York when he started in 1930, says

Little did they (the prospective songwriters) dream of the . . . paylola that those sweeter–than–light vaudeville stars got; or of the cut–ins, the kickback of the music business where a big entertainer got his or her name on a song as co–writer and—forever thereafter—got a share of the royalties "either now in existence or yet to be invented." The lawyers had every contingency covered, then as now. [1]

"For years, Duke Ellington's agent, Irving Mills, was listed as a co–writer of Ellington's music, although he never wrote a note. And there are many other examples. See also the discussion of "Stompin' at the Savoy" at Savoy Ballroom.)
"Ken Darby had worked on many movie scores in Hollywood. This was his first collaboration with Elvis Presley. Elvis Presley was involved in all phases of the creation of this song, as well as the three other soundtrack songs, "Let Me", "We're Gonna Move", and "Poor Boy". "Love Me Tender" was published by Elvis Presley Music.[2]
"Ken Darby won three Academy Awards for musical scores for movies, The King and I, Porgy and Bess, and Camelot. He also won a Grammy for Porgy and Bess. He began his career as the vocal arranger for the movie The Wizard of Oz in 1939. Darby was responsible for creating the vocal score for the Munchkin songs in The Wizard of Oz by slowing down the vocals and then meshing them with the film speed."
and
"Presley did co-write two songs, however, although he was not the principal composer: "That's Someone You Never Forget" with Red West in 1961 and "You'll Be Gone" with Red West and Charlie Hodge in 1962, although his contributions were in the form of song ideas and coming up with the subject matter or theme of the songs and the title."
as off-topic. If somebody wants to add it someplace appropriate, say Song royalties, feel free. TREKphiler hit me ♠ 21:52, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
