I like to keep a running list in my mind of my Top 50 Favorite Songs Ever. I'm not very close to having the whole list worked out, but I do know for sure that one of my top 50 favorite songs ever is Suspicious Minds. It's just one of my favorite songs. I think it is a great song. I think that pretty much every cover (even bad ones) of this song is good--and that's rare. I've made a playlist of Suspicious Minds. It's the only song on the list. I've included what I believe are the 4 best versions. The Fine Young Cannibals cover is one of the most pleasant surprises from the 80s. It's actually, like, really good. Also, the Waylon Jennings duet with Jessie Colter is really good but unavailable on Playlist.com. Also, Pete Yorn's is good.
I listen to this playlist all the time at home. I play it in the kitchen and my whole family listens to different versions of the same song over and over. I never get sick of it.
This post is dedicated to Elvis Aaron Presley. Some of my earliest childhood memories revolve around him, his voice, and the impression that he was a very special and beloved man who might even be my father. We were devoted to him and we grieve over the end of his troubled life.
