Chart History

It was released worldwide as a single by RCA Victor,[1] reaching no. 21 on Billboard in the United States, no. 15 on the Record World chart, no. 16 in Canada and the American Cashbox charts, and no. 19 in the UK.[2][3][4] It was very successful in Australia, where it reached no. 4 on the charts.[5] It has appeared on six compilation albums of Elvis Presley's recordings.

Co-writer Dolores Fuller was a songwriter and actress who had played the role as the title character's girlfriend in Ed Wood's 1953 surrealist film, Glen or Glenda.

The song was copyrighted on February 4, 1965 and published by Gladys Music, Inc.[6]

The B side of the 1965 single release was "You'll Be Gone", written by Red West, Elvis Presley, and Charlie Hodge in 1962. The B side reached no. 121 on Billboard and no. 35 on the Canadian charts. Both songs were on the Girl Happy soundtrack album."You'll Be Gone" was an attempt to create the same kind of song as Begin the Beguine after Elvis Presley's Management Team failed to obtain the rights to cover the song. "You'll Be Gone" is one of the songs for which Elvis Presley got a co-writer credit. Another Elvis Presley composition is "That's Someone You Never Forget", written with Red West in 1961.

The Cramps covered the song in their 1987 album Rockin n Reelin in Auckland New Zealand. In 1991 the song was spoofed by Dread Zeppelin in their song "Do The Claw".
