It Happened at the World's Fair is the seventeenth album by Elvis Presley, released on RCA Victor Records in mono and stereo, LPM/LSP 2697, in April 1963. Recording sessions took place at Radio Recorders in Hollywood on August 30 and September 22, 1962. It peaked at #4 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart.
Initially booked for August 28 and 29, sessions were delayed as Presley had taken ill, and only two numbers were completed satisfactorily on the first night of August 30. Ten songs were tackled for the soundtrack, the standouts being two written by one of Presley's favorite songwriters, Don Robertson taking an active part in the sessions by playing keyboards, and one by the team that had written the #2 hit single "Return to Sender" of the previous year, Otis Blackwell and Winfield Scott. All three songs, "I'm Falling In Love Tonight," "They Remind Me Too Much of You," and "One Broken Heart for Sale," would be included on the 1995 compilation of soundtrack highlights.
"One Broken Heart for Sale" and "They Remind Me Too Much of You" would be released ahead of time on January 29 as a single to promote both the album and the film. "Broken Heart" just missed the top ten, peaking at
