Suspicious Mind - Elvis Presley

                  I was devastated when on the 16th august 1977 I was watching telly with my Grandma aged 14yrs the news came on to say that Elvis had died.I remember going to bed and lying awake all night thinking that my world had come to an end.I had loved his music from an early age as mum played it and her best friend never played anything but.I have loads of his albums and will cherish them always,this song Suspicious minds is my favourite and have played it over and over.Hope you enjoy it.

  5. He is my ALLTIME favorite singer. I too was so sad when he died so young. I don't believe anyone will ever match him in my lifetime.

  6. My dad shared the same birthday as Elvis though a few years apart - 9th January and he used to have one of those video sized cassette players in the car - the one that was always played was Elvis and the song Suspicious Minds was one of the songs I remember. My absolute favourite though is "In The Ghetto." I remember when he died as he was making a comeback and had released a song called "Way Down" which went to No. 8 or thereabouts but after he died it shot straight to No.1. Funny the things you can recall after all these years, isn't it?

  9. So many of us share this sadness at his death. Like you, we all take solace in the music that won't ever die...:)

  10. Elvis was so beautiful as a young man and such a travesty at the end. One of the great tragedies. The death of a glorious voice.

  12. I wrote about Elvis today, too; I think he's on the mind of lots of fans. And this is also one of my favorites of his many wonderful songs.

  13. Elvis was bigger than life. His picture, accepting an honorary drug enforcement badge from the clueless Richard Nixon, only adds to my admiration. He died of self abuse; if only his cadre of toadies had laid off, perhaps he would have gotten the help he needed...

    "Suspicious Minds"!! Every time I hear it in the grocery store, my husband goes nuts because I have to do the "Whoooooos" in the chorus. I mean EVERY one. Mortified my daughter, too, but now she joins in. Love me some Elvis. Thanks for a great post and tribute! Amy

  14. I always loved Elvis. I remember how we screamed at his first movies. I must have been a pre-teen then. My favorite Elvis song is "One Night" and I used to play it over and over again, long after he had died.
    E is definitely for Elvis.
