Honoring Elvis: Three "Suspicious Minds" Covers

Honoring Elvis: Three "Suspicious Minds" Covers

Today marks the 30th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death, and it seems wrong not to honor The King with a musical interlude. I got a little depressed browsing the photos of late-model Elvis — man, did he look rough in the end — so I'm cheering myself up with one of my favorite Elvis songs, "Suspicious Minds," which is widely credited with fueling his 1968 comeback.

The high-energy anthem has been covered an astounding number of times in myriad different ways. As a kid, I loved the Fine Young Cannibals version (hey, I'm not ashamed; my parents had the CD), so I thought I'd share it. I also discovered two very somber versions today on My Old Kentucky Blog: one by My Morning Jacket and another by the Flaming Lips. To listen to all three,


Fine Young Cannibals, "Suspicious Minds"

My Morning Jacket, "Suspicious Minds" (Live)

Flaming Lips, "Suspicious Minds" (Live)

What about Dwight Yoakam's version? It's better than either of these (Flaming Lips won't play for me).

Pete Yorn's version is awesome too. It's on his "Live From New Jersey" CD. Check it out!

I'm not really an Elvis fan, but this is one of my favorites by the King.
