March 27th: On This Day

On this day in 1972, Elvis Presley recorded what would be his last major hit “Burning Love”. The song would hit number two on the US chart. However, it reached #1 on Cashbox’s Top 40 Charts for the week of November 11, which gave him 20 US #1 hits.

Written by Dennis Linde and originally recorded by country soul artist Arthur Alexander, who included it on his 1972 self-titled album. It was soon covered and brought to fame by Elvis, becoming his biggest hit single in the United States since “Suspicious Minds” in 1969.
