CLEVELAND, Ohio – Sixty-two years ago today, Elvis Presley walked into Sam Phillips' Sun Record Co. studio and recorded his first commercial single – "That's All Right (Mama).''

That day – July 5, 1954 – began a career that, remarkably, is continuing today, despite Presley's death at the age of 42 in 1977. The B-side of that original 45 RPM was "Blue Moon of Kentucky,'' which remains a personal favorite of mine.

Presley's discography contains either 14 or 18 No. 1 singles – depending on who is analyzing the history of Billboard's charts, which underwent several evolutions during the early stages of the King's career. "That's All Right,'' written and originally recorded by Arthur "Big Boy'' Crudup in Chicago in 1946, actually includes some traditional blues verses that reportedly were first recorded by Blind Lemon Jefferson in 1926.

Over the years, we had skinny Elvis, leather Elvis, Vegas Elvis, fat Elvis. Even today, an entire industry exists around Elvis impersonators from different eras, and most of those impersonators usually stop in Cleveland in January during an annual show honoring Presley's birthday.

It's hard to imagine Kanye impersonators 60 years in the future.

All that aside, I was wondering about favorite tunes from the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer. Take our poll, and use the comments section to convince other voters to follow your lead.

What's your favorite Elvis Presley single?
