In January of 1956, Elvis Presley made his first television appearance on The Dorsey Brothers' Stage Show. He performed his hit song, "Shake, Rattle and Roll".

"Shake, Rattle and Roll" was written in 1954 by Jesse Stone. It was actually originally recorded by Big Joe Turner and then again, more successfully, by Bill Haley and His Comets. Elvis recorded the song twice, in 1955, and then again in 1956, when it was finally officially released with Elvis singing vocals and playing the the rhythm guitar. It made it onto Rolling Stone's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

This is a fun, high-energy performance and definitely makes y'all want to get up a dance to the rockabilly tune. After the performance, he takes a bow and the audience erupts into applause and screams. Check out Elvis' first television appearance below and just try not to sing along because it's impossible not to.

Well get out of that bed, wash your face and hands
Get out of that bed, wash your face and hands
Well get in that kitchen
Make some noise with the pots and pans
I believe it to my soul you're the devil in nylon hose
I believe it to my soul you're the devil in nylon hose
For the harder I work the faster my money goes

Well I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake rattle and roll
I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake rattle and roll
Well you won't do right
To save your doggone soul

Shake rattle and roll

I'm like the one-eyed cat peeping in a seafood store
I'm like the one-eyed cat peeping in a seafood store
Well I can look at you tell you ain't no child no more
I believe you're doing me wrong and now I know
I believe you're doing me wrong and now I know
'Cause the harder I work the faster my money goes

Well I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake rattle and roll
I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake rattle and roll
Well you won't do right
To save your doggone soul

Play it again!

I went over the hill, way down underneath
I went over the hill, way down underneath
You make me roll my eyes
And then you make me grit my teeth

Well I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake rattle and roll
I said shake, rattle and roll
I said shake rattle and roll
Well you won't do right
To save your doggone soul
