Elvis Presley finished his military service in 1960. He came back and picked up with another streak of # 1 hits, including “It’s now or never” in the summer of 1960.
”Are you lonesome tonight” was # 1 over the Christmas holidays and into the first week of 1961.
I always thought that it was one of Elvis’ finest vocal performances. He sounded great and lots of fans agreed with that.
