"Stuck on You" was Elvis Presley's first hit single after ending his two-year stint in the US Army. He recorded the song during March 1960, and the single was released within weeks and went to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in late-April 1960, becoming his first number-one single of the 1960s, and thirteenth overall. "Stuck on You" also peaked at number six on the R&B charts [1]. The song knocked Percy Faith's "Theme from A Summer Place" which had spent nine weeks at number one on the chart.

In New Zealand (and perhaps other countries), the single had a special paper sleeve with the usual RCA logo top left and 45 R.P.M. bottom left and included, in large letters, "ELVIS" top right and bottom left: "Elvis' 1st new recording for his 50,000,000 fans all over the world."
