[No.1 on 18 July 2002]

Following the song’s use in the 2001 film Ocean’s Eleven, “A Little Less Conversation” was remixed by Dutch musician Tom Holkenborg, better known as Junkie XL (or JXL). The electronic remix featured Elvis with a lower voice, and added emphasis to the 1968 guitars, horns and a funk drum beat. Holkenborg was the first artist outside the Presley organization to receive authorization from the Elvis Presley estate to remix an Elvis Presley song.
