Winfield Scott Died

Songwriter Winfield Scott died, he was 95. Elvis Presley recorded 9 songs he wrote and cowrote with Otis Blackwell. 

Winfield Scott (also known as Robie Kirk) was an American songwriter, who wrote or co-wrote the hit songs 'Tweedle Dee' for LaVern Baker and 'Return to Sender' for Elvis Presley. 'Return to Sender', written for the Presley film Girls! Girls! Girls!, was his biggest hit, selling over 14 million copies in the U.S. alone.

Scott was a longtime collaborator of Otis Blackwell and together they were hired to write a song for the Elvis Presley film 'Roustabout'. While the film was released in 1964, the song 'I'm a Roustabout' was not used, producer Hal Wallis instead preferring 'Roustabout', written by Bill Giant, Bernie Baum and Florence Kaye, as the title song. In 2003, a remark made to a reporter by Scott started a search for the lost recording of the Presley song, which was eventually found and released on the 2003 Elvis Presley compilation album, '2nd to None'.
