It was released on March 23, , from Martin's self-titled debut English-language album he had previously released several albums in Spanish. The song was composed by Desmond Child and Draco Rosa. La vida loca is Spanish for "the crazy life. Before this time, most non-Latino Americans had never heard of Martin until what CNN reported was a show-stopping performance of " La Copa de la Vida " at the 41st Grammy Awards show, which became a catalyst in bringing Latin pop to the forefront of the U.
Although Uda never sang the song live, it has since become widely known and often performed by others. Witch is now a lie. Released as the b-side of the " What'd I Say " single from the same film"Viva Las Vegas" charted separately from its A-side, a modest hit reaching 29 on the Billboard Hot pop singles chart.
In the years since its first release, the song has become one of Presley's most recognized numbers. In the s and s, the song appeared usaa countless movies and TV sitcoms, either as a reference to the city of Las Vegasor simply as an expression of joy or bewilderment in related comedic situations. Inthe city of Las Vegas requested Elvis Presley Enterprisesthe company that handles a portion of Elvis's legacy and all Elvis-related music rights, to allow it to be the official song of the city.
Negotiations stalled over the price requested by EPE, notwithstanding that EPE had not controlled the copyright to the song sinceat which time it became the property of the families of the songwriters Doc Pomus  and Mort Shuman.
Since EPE no longer owns the copyright to the song, it essentially means that EPE does not have the authority or right to negotiate the use of the song "Viva Las Vegas" within the United States, its territories and possessions, although EPE may be able to negotiate the use of the actual Elvis recording of the song.
