All Shook Up and its weeks at #1 in the U.S.A.

Wed Mar 29, 2006 9:34 pm

I've been reading about and found that some sources give All Shook Up 8 weeks at number one while other give it 9. What causes this difference and what is the exact number? Please, if you want, go to ... _%28USA%29, and go to April 13 when the song reached number one for the first time. Perhaps some use the issue date of June 3 for giving All Shook Up a further week at #1 because it is at number one in all charts but in "Best Sellers In Stores". Or perhaps the sources that state 9 weeks use the chart with the most weeks at number one ("Most Played In Jukeboxes") Note too that the song was credited with 2 weeks at number one with only two days of difference between both issues (April 27 and April 29), It is so strange but there is an explanation on a note at the top of the page though.

Jove, thanks for clarifying this.

Thanks, but it is a mistery to me why in the "30 Number One Hits" CD it is stated that this song was number one for nine weeks. This is stated too in other sources and many sources say too that Elvis spent 80 weeks at number one and not 79.
