In 1950 the Blue Barron Orchestra version reached the top twenty on the Billboard's Pop Singles chart. Its release was delayed by RCA Victor executives, who thought the song did not fit Presley's new (and publicized) style. In March 1950, the Blue Barron Orchestra released "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" with "Penny Wise and Love Foolish" on the B-side, and it peaked at number nineteen on Billboard's Top Pop Singles chart. In April Don Cornell released a version without the narrative bridge as the B-side of his RCA Victor single, "Stay With the Happy People". Billboard called it a: "dreamy waltz. that) gets effective treatment (on the recording)".
