"Bossa Nova Baby" is a song written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller and recorded on January 22, 1963, at Radio Recorders in Hollywood, CA by Elvis Presley as part of the soundtrack of the 1963 motion picture Fun in Acapulco.
Interviewed in 2015, Stoller said: "I like the original version of "Bossa Nova Baby" done by Tippie & the Clovers better than Elvis' version. It's got a Latin feel and it had certain elements of bossa nova, but it wasn't the real thing. The Clovers' version was much cooler than Elvis' version, which was in the film Fun In Acapulco."
