The 101 Number One Song of the Day was a hit before a single fan ever heard the song.
RCA assigned it catalog number 7740 and with only that to go on, the company racked up over 1,275,000 advance orders of the record. Why all the anticipation? The singer had been out of commission for the previous two years and his millions of fans were hungry for something – anything – new. The reason he was out of commission was that he was serving as a non commissioned officer in the U.S. Army. Anybody care to guess who I’m talking about here? That’s right, catalog number 7740 was recorded by the King – Elvis and it was number one on this day – May 10, 1960 and here it is. “Stuck On You”
