Gay singer-songwriter Johnny Ray was so popular in the 1950s that some folks called him the "original Elvis." His highly emotional and histrionic singing caused teenagers so much excitement that he was condemned by parents and religious figures. Ray, who was best man at Judy Garland's wedding, has been name checked in numerous songs inlcuding Billie Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire" and Dexys Midnight Runners' 1982 smash "Come On Eileen."
