"All Shook Up" is a song recorded by Elvis Presley and published by Elvis Presley Music and composed by Otis Blackwell.
Elvis Presley's single topped the U.S. Pop chart on April 13, 1957, staying there for eight weeks.
It also topped the R&B chart for four weeks, becoming Presley's second single to do so, and peaked at #3 on the country chart.
It is certified 2X Platinum by the RIAA. It was ranked #352 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

History

Blackwell wrote the song at the offices of Shalimar Music in 1956 after Al Stanton, one of Shalimar's owners, shaking a bottle of Pepsi at the time, suggested he write a song based around the phrase "all shook up".
The song was recorded by David Hill before Presley in 1956.

Presley's Recording

On January 12, 1957, Presley recorded the song at Radio Recorders in Hollywood.
Take 10 was selected for release, and in March the song entered Billboard's Top 100 chart at #25.
Within three weeks it had knocked Perry Como's "Round and Round" off the top spot, and stayed there for eight consecutive weeks.
The song also became Presley's first UK #1 single, remaining there for seven weeks.
Sales of the single exceeded 2 million, and the song was named Billboard's Year End number one song for 1957.
