Elvis managed his 2nd #1 hit with this song back in 1956. Steve Sholes, who was a producer at RCA, was noy happy with the 17 takes of the song the band did on short notice due to the bust touring schedule. Elvis couldn't seem to get it right and the band was exactly on the top of their game. They only had hrs to get it right. 

Sholes ended up slicing takes 14 and 17 together and no one knew.

Meatloaf used a bit of the song for inspiration in his song "Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad" many years later.
