"Way Down" is a song recorded by Elvis Presley. Recorded in October 1976, it was the last single released before his death on August 16, 1977.
Released as a single (with "Pledging My Love" on the B-side) on June 6, 1977, it was his current single when he died. It initially peaked at number 31 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart dated August 6, 1977 and had fallen to number 53 on the chart for the week ending August 27, 1977. Thereafter it reversed direction and reached an even higher peak at #18 on 24 September - 1 October 1977. It reached #1 in the American Country and British Pop charts, just days after his death, and almost seven years after his previous UK #1 single, "The Wonder of You", in 1970.
