Now is the hour (Maori farewell song *)
The song is written by Maewa Kaihan – Clement Scott – Dorothy Stewart.

The song is often mentioned in magazines – books as instrumental track recorded on 27 july 1965 for the movie Paradise Hawaiian style. There are no documents about this recording and the song is probably rejected in the pre-selection.
The song was a big hit in 1948 with recordings by:
08-11-47 – Bing Crosby (Decca 24279);
00-11-47 – Eddy Howard (Majestic 1191);
00-11-47 – Grace Fields (London 110);
22-11-47 – Charlie Spivak (RCA 202704);
00-03-48 – Margaret Whiting (Capitol 15024).

* The Maori’s originate from New Zealand!!

Fabulous
The song was written by Harry Land – John Sheldon aka Bernie Lowe – Karl Man; it was a hit in 1957 for Charlie Grace (Cameo 107) and Steve Lawrence (Coral 61834).
According to the book Elvis – His life from A to Z (Fred Worth & Steve Tamerius) may have recorded the song.
I think it’s only a rumour. There are no documents or another proof about a recording in the 50’s.

There’s a brand new day on the horizon

The demo acetate on the tune of “Glory glory halleluh” is rejected (by director John Rich) during a pre-selection on 13 january 1964 because it’s not a dixieland marchin’ song. The song was too "religious" for that scene.

Don’t forbid me
Perhaps it’s not a real rejected song but according to the dialogue during the MDQ session on 4 december 1956 a demo version was sent to Elvis. It was unopened at Graceland with all the junk that comes in. The song was written by Charlie Singleton.
Pat Boone recorded his hit version on 10 november 1956 (Dot 15521).

It won’t be me
The song is written by Ben Weisman and Fred Wise. I've not found information about a selection for a recording session or movie. The song is registered at ASCAP with performer: Elvis Presley.
The song can’t be confused with “It won’t be long” (Weisman-Wayne) for the movie Double troube.

It happened at the world’s fair
According to ASCAP the song was written by Don Robertson. Together with Hal Blair he also wrote the song Take me to the fair (rejected version). This rejected version of Take me to the fair is not registered at ASCAP. In the pre-selection 8 songs from 10 songs written by Don Robertson for the movie were rejected. It seems IHATWF is not the same song; it’s probablye one of these 8 rejected songs.
It could be the instrumental film music is registered here but I doubt. Instrumental film music (bridges between scenes etc) for Elvis’ movies are registered in another way

Alabama wild man
In an article from Marty Lacker around 1980 he wrote about a recording of the song in 1968. Probably Elvis heard a demo version and Marty Lacker confused the song with U.S. Male.
The song was written by Jerry Reed (aka Hubbard) and recorded on 31 may 1968 (RCA 47-9623).
The song is registered at BMI without any connection with Elvis and/or his music publishing companies.
There’s a clip on Youtube.
