"All Shook Up" is one of the many hit songs of Elvis Presley. It reached the top of all three U.S. charts (pop, country and R&B), staying there for eight weeks in 1957, from April 13 through May 27. In the U.S., it is regarded as the top song of 1957. Otis Blackwell composed this song, with compositional additions by Elvis himself, who is also credited as lyricist. It was ranked #352 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
The Jeff Beck Group recorded the song on the 1969 Beckola album with Rod Stewart on lead vocals and Ron Wood on bass.
The Beatles performed the song during their oldies jams during the Let it Be sessions in 1969.
Anson Williams performed the song on the Happy Days TV show in the 1970s.
It has also been recorded by Ry Cooder in a very energetic version verging on parody.
