Q Of all the songs Elvis Presley recorded, which was his favorite?
—Linda Aliff, Spring Hill, Fla.

Presley often remarked that his favorite was "It's Now or Never." Based on the Italian song "O Sole Mio" and re-tooled into a catchy cha-cha by American songwriters Wally Gold and Aaron Schroeder specifically for Presley, it became his 14th No. 1 single in July 1960, four months after his discharge from the U.S. Army.
