Does “Suspicious Minds” represent Elvis Presley’s greatest moment? Do you prefer the early period Elvis or the Vegas period Elvis?

this record shows elvis had soul, the ending has always been a mystery to me, was it to reflect the way elvis sang it live , i wonder.

Suspicious Minds - one of the best Elvis tracks ever, the first one my son sang aged 3. A classic! We like all the Elvis stuff other than the 'movie fillers', and some of those aren't too bad.

Paul Rogerson, Edinburgh
"Suspicious Minds represents the last great moment in the career of Elvis Presley." Only someone breathtakingly ignorant of the late King's oeuvre could be so deluded. Every track on the seminal box set 'Walk a mile in my shoes' box set was recorded after Suspicious Minds - and if your hapless critic genuinely thinks it is devoid of any great tracks then he is to be pitied rather than advice is, start with 'Pieces of my Life' - a superlative performance from a man only months from death - and work your way back...

Michael Southwell, Perth Western Australia
Spine tingling emotion in every line. The king setting standards which may never be matched.

This song sums up everyones mental picture of Elvis; the only man ever to make a white lycra jumpsuit look ultra cool...

Scott Hannaford, Worcester
I have heard three versions of this - Elvis will always be the best, but the Fine Young Cannibals version is superbly balanced, and the banjo busting version by Lady Winwood's Maggots just makes you want to pick your jaw up off the floor. Elvis's best song and an amazement that it never made number one!
