· "Jailhouse Rock" - Elvis Presley

"Jailhouse Rock" is a song written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller that first became a hit recorded by Elvis Presley. The song was first released as a 45 RPM single on September 24, 1957, to coincide with the release of Presley's motion picture of the same name. Composer Mike Stoller can be seen playing piano in the film presentation of the song. The single, with its B-side "Treat Me Nice," was a US #1 hit for 7 weeks in the fall of 1957, and a UK #1 hit for three weeks early in 1958. Also in 1957, "Jailhouse Rock" was the lead song in an EP (extended play single), together with other songs from the film, namely "Young and Beautiful," "I Want to be Free," "Don't Leave Me Now," and "(You're So Square) Baby I Don't Care." It topped the Billboard EP charts, eventually selling an additional two million copies and earning another double-platinum RIAA certification. In 2005, the song was re-released in the UK and reached #1 for a single week. The song, which is an example of simple verse form, eventually sold four million copies in the US, thus earning a Double Platinum certification by the RIAA. Also is #67 on Rolling Stone's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All TimE and was named one of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.
