Heartbreak Hotel" (1956) Report Abuse
Released on January 27, 1956, this heart-wrenching tune was inspired by a suicide note printed in The Miami Herald. The tune didn't catch the public's attention until Elvis started appearing on television in the months following its release.

"Don't Be Cruel" (1956) Report Abuse
This was the first song that Elvis self-produced. And what a job he did! Not only did he rack up his second number one in three months, he also created a whole new style for himself -- one characterized by a free, casual sound.

"Hound Dog" (1956) Report Abuse
This song was a blues classic long before anyone had heard of Elvis Presley. But it was the King's July 1956 TV appearances, in which he crooned to a real pup, that propelled it to the top of the pop charts. The machine-gun-like drumming of D. J. Fontana perfectly complemented Elvis's edgy vocals.

"Love Me Tender" (1956) Report Abuse
This song's tune came from a Civil War ballad called "Aura Lee." The lyrics were written for Elvis's first movie, also called Love Me Tender. The movie -- a depiction of the notorious Reno Brothers Gang -- was forgettable; the song was anything but!

"Too Much" (1957) Report Abuse
Released on January 4, 1957, "Too Much" brought to the forefront the talents of Elvis's supporting players, especially guitarist Scotty Moore. And, of course, the King sounds great, too!
