“Hard Headed Woman” by Elvis Presley was a hard rocking, up-tempo performance that was typical of many of his early hits. Unfortunately for Elvis, it did not top the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Most Played By D.J.’s Chart or The Top 100. It did sell well, however, and on July 21, 1958, it began a two week run at the top of the Best Sellers In Stores Chart, which gave Elvis another official number one song.
Elvis was at the height of his early popularity and just about everything he touched turned to gold and so it was with this sometimes overlooked hit. Fifties Elvis at his best.
