One Night

One Night by Elvis Presley was a UK number 1 hit on Friday, January 30, 1959 spending 4 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This was written by Dave Bartholomew and Dave King. Bartholomew wrote some of Fats Domino's hits. Elvis recorded this in February 1957. A year later, Elvis went into the army. During this time, Elvis was in Germany so his record company began releasing previously recorded tracks. In the US, this came out in 1958; in the UK it was released in 1959. It was Elvis' first song to reach the top of the UK charts after he went into the army. In January 2005 this was re-released in the UK to commemorate Elvis' 70th birthday. It went to #1, replacing Elvis' "Jailhouse Rock," which was also re-released. It became the fourth track ever to be #1 twice and only the third time in UK chart history that an artist has replaced themselves at the top of the charts. This was Elvis' last single to be released in the US in the 78 R.P.M. format. After this, all of his singles in the US were released as 45's. Only England, Canada and other countries continued releasing his singles as 78's for some years after this.
