Elvis Presley’s “All Shook Up” reaches #1 on the US Pop Singles chart and remains there for eight weeks.
The single topped the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 on April 13, 1957, staying there for eight weeks. It also topped the Billboard R&B chart for four weeks, becoming Presley’s second single to do so, and peaked at No. 3 on the country chart. It is certified 2X Platinum by the RIAA.
Elvis Presley was the first contributor to a new Memphis fundraiser called “Coffee Day For Crippled Children.”
The Beatles kicked off a 48 night booking at The Star Club in Hamburg, Germany. During their stay they will record two tracks with Tony Sheridan, “Sweet Georgia Brown” and “Swanee River”, but whether these were the versions of Sheridan’s songs that were eventually released is uncertain.
“Surfin’ USA” by the Beach Boys was released in the US, where it will become the group’s second Billboard chart-maker, reaching #3. The song was a note-for-note copy of Chuck Berry‘s “Sweet Little Sixteen” with new lyrics. After Berry sued, he was granted royalties and all further issues of the song gave him writing credit.
At the Northwestern, Inc. recording studio in Portland, Oregon, the Kingsmen recorded “Louie Louie.”
