Are You Lonesome Tonight? by Elvis Presley was a UK number 1 hit on Thursday, January 26, 1961 spending 4 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. One of the more woebegone songs ever written, "Are You Lonesome Tonight" finds Elvis asking his ex if she's alone and miserable, thinking about the good times they had and waiting for his return. Elvis recorded it when his manager, Colonel Parker, asked him to try the song because it was a favorite of Parker's wife, Marie. It was a huge hit, spending six weeks at #1 on the Hot 100 between November 1960 and January 1961. Turk and Handman would have earned enormous royalties, but they were both dead by the time Elvis recorded the song. This earned Grammy nominations for Best Performance By A Pop Single Artist and Best Vocal Performance Single Record Or Track, Male, but lost in both categories .
