This ballad was recorded by Elvis Presley in 1960. It is one of two popular songs based on the Italian song "'O Sole Mio" (music by Eduardo di Capua), the other being "There's No Tomorrow", recorded by U.S. singer Tony Martin in 1949. It was this version that inspired the Presley version. The song is the second best-selling single by Presley, is one of the best-selling singles of all time and was written in under 30 minutes by Aaron Schroeder and Wally Gold.
In 1960, "It's Now or Never" was got to No.1 in the USA (spending 5 weeks at the top slot) and in the UK it spent 8 weeks at No.1. Its British release was delayed for some time because of rights issues, allowing the song to build up massive advance orders and to enter the UK Singles Chart at number one, a very rare occurrence at the time.
