Explanation for the edit at 3:20 p.m. CST for this article.
Previously, the edit stated that "Heartbreak Hotel" by Elvis Presley had spent 17 weeks at No. 1 and was the last song to do so.
However, I changed it based on the fact there were two songs that surpassed it in longevity since, so the next standard is "Walk On By" by Leroy Van Dyke, which spent 19 weeks at No. 1 in 1961-1962. Then after that come these standards:
- 20 weeks – "Crazy Arms" by Ray Price in 1956. (Which did so after Elvis Presley's "Heartbreak Hotel").
- 21 weeks – "In the Jailhouse Now" by Webb Pierce in 1955. (Two other songs had done it previously, but the last was "In the Jailhouse Now").
So while indeed the last song to spend just 17 weeks at No. 1 was indeed "Heartbreak Hotel," there were two other songs that had spent longer at No. 1 since then. Hence, the correction – as there were two songs to also spend at least 17 weeks since Elvis Presley did so. [[Briguy52748 (talk) 20:26, 26 June 2013 (UTC)]]
