He had a whole bunch of singles before Heartbreak Hotel.
Level 67

Snix & Wombat are right. "Heartbreak Hotel" certainly wasn't first. "That's Alright, Mama" was first.

You should accept "The Colonel" - that's how he was typically referred to.

Parker was as much a Colonel as I am. He was an illegal Dutch immigrant (probably on the lam from the Netherlands authorities).

The reason he wouldn't allow Elvis to accept any overseas gigs is because he (Parker), due to his illegal status in the US, was unable

to get a passport and of course, he would never let Elvis out of his

sight for any period of time.

The Colonel will work now.

I always thought his nickname was Elvis the Pelvis.

I knew about the bananas and peanut butter. Didn't know about the bacon. That sounds pretty good, actually.

Same here. I always thought it was just peanut butter and bananas. Apparently sometimes it contained bacon, too.
Level 70

I bought a postcard with the recipe on it at Graceland. It didn't list bacon on it though. I think the key is frying it in butter.

I made a burger with these 3 ingredients once. Well the bananas were in the sauce called Caribbean BBQ with big banana chunks. It was delicous. Great mix.

Thought "Aron" would be on this.

His middle name.
Level 51

Wasn't his home town East Tupelo? I think it merged with Tupelo, and, hence, disappeared.
Level 37
May 26, 2017
I'm pretty sure, he sang it as ... burnin' love. Wasn't too keen on his ing endings.

You might want to put in there about how he got drafted into the Vietnam War
Level 37
Nov 20, 2017
He did not serve in Vietnam. He served in Germany from '57-'59 I believe. A that time the USA was still sending "Advisors" to Vietnam, not fighting troops.

It was 58-60

Another comment that Heartbreak Hotel was his first RCA single, but not his actual first single by a long shot, which was That's All Right Mama/Blue Moon of Kentucky.
Level 46
Feb 8, 2020
Correct. His first record on the Sun Label. Heartbreak Hotel was his first million selling record. Shame on Billboard Magazine for eliminating his #1 records prior to August 1958 when they started the "Hot 100". He has 18 #1 records, and now they are only giving him credit for 7. Outrageous!

The story about the TV is that when Elvis was serving in the Army, Robert Goulet insinuated that he was "taking care" of Elvis's girlfriend who was a singer in Goulet's show. Years later Elvis was in his hotel room in Vegas and Goulet appeared on TV. Elvis took his gun and shot at Goulet on the TV.

You know you're too young for this quiz when your first guess on "Elvis has left the..." is "chat".

Always bad quiz etiquette when you have questions that are dependent on you getting a previous answer right. One of the great unwritten no-nos of quiz construction.

That’s not a rule. You might know the general area of the USA Elvis is from and could guess it in a few attempts, but you’re showing much deeper knowledge by knowing his hometown.
Level 83
Oct 7, 2022
yeah, since when?

Fun fact, "Hound Dog" isn't originally by Elvis. It's by a black woman in 1952 called Big Mama Thornton. Elvis' version changes some of her lyrics but it's still obvious that it's based on her song.

But written by Leiber and Stoller. 2 people who wrote a lot of Elvis' early hits.
