Fats Domino‘s “I Want to Walk You Home” enters the US record charts, where it will eventually reach the Top Ten. Although Fats would have 18 singles that were million sellers, he never had a number one record.

Four members of The Platters were arrested after a gig in Cincinnati after being found with four 19 year old women, (3 of them white), in various stages of undress. The scandal resulted in radio stations across the US removing Platters records from their playlists.

Five weeks after it entered the Billboard Hot 100, Elvis Presley’s “A Big Hunk Of Love” reached number one.

The Hollywood Decade/The Elvis Establishment

August 8, 1960

Johnny Kidd And The Pirates topped the UK chart with “Shakin’ All Over”. The song was ignored across the pond until recorded by The Guess Who, who took it to #22 in America and #1 in their home country of Canada in 1965.

16 year old Bryan Hyland‘s novelty tune, “Itsy Bitsy, Teenie Weenie, Yellow Polka Dot Bikini” topped the Billboard Hot 100 and the Cash Box Best Sellers list. Songwriter Paul Vance said he got the inspiration for the song when he saw his two year old daughter at the beach in a tiny little swimsuit. The record reached #8 in the UK.

England’s Decca Records scrapped 25,000 copies of Ray Peterson’s “Tell Laura I Lover Her” because they felt the song, which recounts the last thoughts of a teenager dying from a car accident, was “too tasteless and vulgar.” A rival record company felt differently and recorded a cover version by a singer named Ricky Valance, which went to number one on the British chart. In the US, Peterson’s version reached number seven on the Billboard Pop chart.

Flaming Star  Elvis recorded four songs at Radio Recorders for Flaming Star between 8.00 p.m. and 4.00 a.m. Elvis was embarrassed by the material.

Elvis Presley released the single “(Marie’s The Name) His Latest Flame” b/w “Little Sister.”

The relatively intense tune, featuring a Bo Diddley beat, performed well on both pop and easy listening stations, reaching No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and No. 2 on the Easy Listening chart, based (at the time) on the Top 100. However, the single’s Hot 100 chart run was atypical of a Top Ten hit. In the autumn of 1961 it shot from 22 to 4, then dropped to 10, then 26, all within the space of four weeks. The single (a double A-side with “Little Sister“, as in the States) spent four weeks at No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart[5] — one of Presley’s nine UK chart-toppers between 1960 and 1962.

“House of the Rising Sun” by The Animals is released in America. Although the band would put 14 songs in the Top 40, this will be their only US number one. It was reported that the song was recorded in just one take and the band was actually in the studio for less than ten minutes.

The soundtrack to the Elvis Presley movie “Kissin’ Cousins” hit #5 in the U.K.

Following the well-received performance, manager Colonel Tom Parker renegotiated Elvis’ contract on a tablecloth in the hotel coffee shop. The new agreement guaranteed the singer $1 million a year for the next five years, for just two months of Vegas concerts a year, thereby giving him time for concert tours around the country.

Surgical instruments allegedly used to conduct Elvis Presley’s autopsy were removed from an upcoming auction amid doubts about their authenticity. Forceps, needle injectors, rubber gloves and a toe tag were among the items that were expected to fetch about $14,000 at Chicago, Illinois’ Leslie Hindman Auctioneers. The so-called “memorabilia” was supposedly kept by a senior embalmer at the Memphis Funeral Home where the singer’s body was stored prior to his funeral, but the claims were questioned after another employee revealed that the equipment was sterilized and used again in other autopsies.
