With Johnny on lead vocals and guitar, his brother Dorsey on stand-up bass and Paul Burlison on lead guitar, they won three weeks in a row, earning them a string of tour dates. It would take Johnny four more years to reach the US charts with “Dreamin” and “You’re Sixteen”.

Elvis performed at the Ed Sullivan Show, CBS Studios, Los Angeles, for the very first time. Since Sullivan himself had had a car accident in August, Elvis was hosted by Charles Laughton in New York City. More than 80 % of the national viewers watched Elvis’ live performance of Don’t Be Cruel, Love Me Tender, Ready Teddy and Hound Dog.

There were also well organized letter writing campaigns and petitions against Presley, but it was later brought to light that many of the signatures were fictitious or of deceased people.

Love me Tender would get a million orders for a song not even recorded, causing “The Reno Brothers” movie to be renamed for the song.

The record would not only top the R&B and Country charts, but it would go on to be ranked #61 on Rolling Stone magazine’s Greatest Songs Of All Time and in 2005 be added to the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress. That’s not bad for a song that Jerry Lee, along with drummer J.M. Van Eaton and guitarist Roland Janes, had recorded in just one take because Sun Records’ producer Jack Clement didn’t have enough tape left for any other attempts.

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.
