In 2002, the 1968 Comeback Special version of the song was remixed by Junkie XL and became a Number 1 hit in over 20 countries. At about the same time, a compilation of Presley's U.S. Number 1 chart hits, entitled ELV1S 30 #1 Hits, was being prepared for release. "A Little Less Conversation" (remix version) was quickly added as the album's 31st track just before its release in October 2002.
The remixed song was used by Nike as the background music to a series of TV commercials featuring international soccer stars in conjunction with the 2002 FIFA World Cup. It was also featured in the 2001 version of the movie, Ocean's Eleven and is the opening theme of the broadcast version (in some countries, including the U.S.). It was also used on Konami's European adaptation of their flaship dancing simulation VG Dance Dance Revolution, on the soundtrack of Dancing Stage MegaMix. This song was used as Howard Dean's campaign theme song for his failed 2004 presidential campaign.
1. A little less conversation, a little more action please
Baby close your eyes and listen to the music
Come on baby I'm tired of talking
