Elvis’ 4th Sun Records single on 45 and 78: Sun 217: Baby Let’s Play House/I’m Left, You’re Right, She’s Gone released. The A Side was Elvis’ first national chart at #5 on the Billboard Country singles in July 1955.
John Lennon used the line, “I’d rather see you dead, little girl, than to be with another man,” from this song for the opening line of The Beatles song “Run for Your Life” from their 1965 album Rubber Soul.
In 2008, a Spankox remix of it made #84 in the UK.
At Sun, Elvis tried two versions of “I’m Left, You’re Right, She’s Gone”. The slow version would be released on the Elvis A Golden Celebration box set in 1986.

Ricky decided to make his own record and he had a Family TV sitcom.

The Beatles‘ original bass player, 22 year old Stuart Sutcliffe, died of a brain hemorrhage. Sutcliffe was included in the band because he had the equipment and place to rehearse, although he couldn’t play very well. His girlfriend, Astrid Kirchherr, created The Beatle haircut for Stu, and John and Paul followed soon after. Sutcliffe can be heard on very early Beatle tracks included on “Anthology 1”. He left the band in 1961 to resume painting because his headaches were getting too severe to play.
“It Happened at the World’s Fair” opened in the U.S.
The also released soundtrack album, released in Mono and Stereo, reached #4.
