Elvis Presley - Number One Song of the Week

This week on Treasure Island Oldies, the Top Five Countdown was from 1960. And the Number One song was originally a number four hit in 1927 for Vaughn De Leath. She was one of the earliest known "crooners" who sadly passed away in Buffalo, New York on May 28, 1943.

I'd guess that most people would have thought that this week's Number One was an original song written for Elvis; no, it was a cover, and an excellent one at that!

So here's the Number One song on the Top Five Countdown from 1960 by Elvis Presley, Are You Lonesome Tonight. It's our Song of the Week.
