Oh well, this single was released in the middle of 1960. It’s Elvis’ second-best-selling single and one of the biggest singles of all time. I consider it to be the greatest vocal performance there is. It’s based on “O Sole Mio,” the famous Italian song. A #1 hit, it is said the song was written in about 30 minutes.
