Blue Moon single





During its 17 weeks on the "Top 100," Elvis's version of Blue Moon never reached higher than #55.
Still it was on the chart longer than I Was the One and Blue Suede Shoes, both of which were top 25 hits for Elvis that year.
Elvis's rendition of Blue Moon is considered that song's first crossover into the rock 'n' roll genre.
The song's biggest splash in rock history, however, came in April 1961, when the Marcels' doowop
version sold a million copies and knocked Elvis's Surrender off the #1 spot on Billboard's "Hot 100."
A few years later, Elvis had one more obscure connection with the tune. In his 1964 film Viva Las Vegas,
while Elvis checks out the chorus girls at the Tropicana Hotel, about 10 seconds of an instrumental version
of Blue Moon plays in the background.
