Hackskeptic’s 500 Greatest Songs: Elvis Presley – Suspicious Minds

310 – Elvis Presley – Suspicious Minds (1969)
Written by Mark James
Produced by Chris Moman and Felton Jarvis
Label – RCA

Following the release of the single “If I Can Dream” in 1968, Presley declared that he would never again perform a song he didn’t believe in. “Suspicious Minds” is a perfect example of the King’s interpretive skills in producing a serious pop song about deep love, suspicion and hurt. Whilst most of the 60s had been a commercial and critical failure, by the end of the decade his renaissance was complete. Many regard this as his greatest recording of the decade.

  1. Thanks. When he felt a song Elvis really cut loose and let his great voice rip! You might like to checkout the Christmas cornucopia series on the immortal jukebox featuring the king. Regards Thom.
