Love Me Tender is the first 45 single to sell a million copies before it was released.

It was in Elvis's first movie, making it two firsts.

Some say this is the first disco record. I have seen a few claims of other songs instead.

John Otway's single Bunsen Burner has a cover of House of the Rising Sun on the b side with a choir of 900. It is the largest choir ever to have recorded at Abbey Road, although not the most musical of choirs.

Bunsen Burner was the second song of Otway's to reach the charts and meant he was finally able to release a greatest hits album, he said that he was proud of finally getting the s on the right side of hit.

He is a lovely man, I have seen him in concert so many times and when he is not on stage he is sat in the bar talking to his fans.

He is incredibly self deprecating.
