Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. None Still Down

Answer: All Shook Up

The opposite of none is all, of still is shook, and of down is up.

Otis Blackwell wrote "All Shook Up." On April 13, 1957, the song reached number one on the Billboard Top 100, remaining for eight weeks. According to some sources, Blackwell wrote the song after Al Stanton of Shalimar Music was shaking a bottle of Pepsi and told him he should write a song using the phrase "All shook up." Other sources say that Elvis thought "All shook up" made a good line and was credited with co-writing.

Elvis himself said in an interview in 1957 that he woke up from a dream "all shook up." He said he wasn't thinking about a song, he just called his friend to tell him what happened, and that morning he was given a new song.
2. Am I Crowded This Morning

Answer: Are You Lonesome Tonight

"Are You Lonesome Tonight" was written by Lou Handman and Roy Turk in 1926. Since then, it was covered by many people, but in 1960, Elvis recorded it after Colonel Tom Parker suggested it. It was Parker's wife's favorite song. Elvis' recording reached gold in 1983, and by 1992 it had gone double platinum.

"It's Now or Never" got its music from the Italian song "O Sole Mio" by Eduardo di Capua. Aaron Schroeder and Wally Gold wrote the lyrics.

Elvis really liked the song when he heard it while stationed in Germany in the Army, plus he was a fan of Mario Lanza, who made "O Sole Mio" famous.
