In the film, Presley plays a man convicted for accidentally killing a drunken brawler in a bar fight. His down-and-out former country singer cellmate cheats him, and his own temper is his worst enemy, but he triumphs in the end by achieving a singing career and the love of a good woman. The single was written by the prolific and successful songwriting team of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, who wrote a dozen of Presley’s hits. “Jailhouse Rock” topped the charts for seven weeks in 1957.
Elvis was determined to avoid special treatment during his military service, notably submitting to a military haircut (after which he joked, “Hair today, gone tomorrow”). Serving with the Third Armored “Spearhead” Division in Friedberg, Germany, Elvis ultimately achieved the rank of Sergeant E-5 and was officially discharged from active duty on March 5, 1960. Almost immediately, he went back into the recording studio for “Stuck On You,” which took a handful of weeks to reach #1, the thirteenth of Elvis’s records to achieve the top of the charts.
With his recording contract newly obtained by RCA Records from Sam Phillips’ legendary Sun Records, Elvis recorded a song written by Mae Boren Axton and Tommy Durden, “Heartbreak Hotel.” The inspiration for Durden’s haunting lyrics was a story about a suicide whose note read only, “I walk a lonely street.” Axton put a hotel at the end of that street, and Elvis crooned and shook the song into success, topping the charts in mere months.
