Born in Wrexham, UK, 16 March 1962. My avatar is the original label of Elvis Presley's hit single "Can't Help Falling In Love" (RCA 1270), which was at Number One on the UK singles chart when I was born.

One of the most unusual chart runs in the 1960s, this single spent a total of 40 weeks in the chart without going beyond number 19. It first peaked at 19 on January 26, 1961 (only its third week on the chart) and, without dropping out in the meantime, it eventually climbed back to number 19 on August 10 (its 31st week on the chart). The rest of his records put together totalled only 29 weeks of chart action. Very unusual.

Mine also has the Elvis impersonation and no disco interlude. I haven't heard the version with a disco interlude, in fact I didn't know it existed until I saw carey jeggs mention it on here.

Your copy might have AMS7459 on it, which would be correct, but wayfinder said his copy says AMS 7495.

Why was it even given a new number when re-issued? The Police singles on A&M charted in 1979 and 1980 with their 1978 original numbers, so why not keep the old number for this one as well, thus saving AMS 7459 for something else, preferably something that charted in the USA that didn't get a UK release? I don't like this number-wasting business when it is so obviously unnecessary.

Does your copy play "Christmas Day" by Squeeze, wayfinder? That's what I would expect if it had AMS7495 in the run-off groove.
