Welcome to Retroville! It's 1960!
In 1960, Elvis Presley released Are You Lonesome Tonight. As with all of Elvis' music, the song rapidly rose on the Billboard charts becoming one of the year's top songs.

The Lyrics:

Are you lonesome tonight,
Do you miss me tonight?
Are you sorry we drifted apart?
Does your memory stray to a bright sunny day
When I kissed you and called you sweetheart?

Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare?
Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there?
Is your heart filled with pain?
Shall I come back again?
Tell me, dear, are you lonesome tonight?

I wonder if you're lonesome tonight
You know someone said that the world's a stage
And each must play a part.
Fate had me playing in love with you as my sweetheart.

Act one was when we met,
I loved you at first glance
You read your lines so cleverly
And never missed a cue

Then came act two,
You seemed to change,
You acted strange
And why I'll never know.

Honey, you lied when you said you loved me
And I had no cause to doubt you.
But I'd rather go on hearing your lies
Than go on living without you.

Now the stage is bare and I'm standing there
With emptiness all around
And if you won't come back to me
Then make them bring the curtain down.

Is your heart filled with pain?
Shall I come back again?
Tell me, dear, are you lonesome tonight?
