"Hound Dog"
By Elvis Presley
Track listing on soundtrack Disc one, track one
Length on soundtrack 2:16

Hound Dog is a song written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. It is best-known, however, for its 1956 recording by Elvis Presley. His version of the song appears in Forrest Gump: The Soundtrack.

The song is shown in the Forrest Gump film being played by Elvis for a young Forrest Gump. His leg braces cause him to dance to the song in an unconventional manner, which impresses Elvis. Later, Forrest and his mother see Elvis performing the song on a television set. Elvis has adopted Forrest's dance method as his own notorious gyrating style, to Mrs. Gump's chagrin.
