“Heartbreak Hotel” by Elvis Presley” kept a number of big hits from reaching number one as it ruled the American Singles Charts for two months during the spring of 1956.
If there was ever a song that was different from “Heartbreak Hotel,” it was “Hot Diggity” by Perry Como. It stalled at number two on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Best Sellers In Stores, Most Played In Jukeboxes, and Top 100 Charts. However, on May 5, 1956, it spent one week on top of the Most PLayed By Disc Jockeys Chart, which gave Perry Como another number one hit.
“Hot Diggity, Dog Diggity, boom what you do to me” were words that made the song memorable. It may not have been Como’s biggest hit, but it remains one of his most popular.
