Fine Young Cannibals - Suspicious Minds (Original Promo) (1985) (HD)

Another classic 80's track rescued from the olde VHS collection. T'aint the best of quality visual wise but I've yet to find a good quality clip of this one anywhere, so anywhoo, here is the Fine Young Cannibals with the old Elvis classic "Suspicious Minds" from 1985...

Cleaned up and redubbed as best I could (which aint too bad considering how bad the original tape was)... enjoy... :-)

"Suspicious Minds" is an American song written and first recorded by American songwriter Mark James. After James' recording failed commercially, the song was handed to Elvis Presley by producer Chips Moman, becoming a number one song in 1969, and one of the most notable hits of Presley's career.

"Suspicious Minds" was widely regarded as the single that returned Presley's career success, following his '68 Comeback Special. It was his eighteenth and last number-one single in the United States.

In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked it No. 91 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Session guitarist Reggie Young played on both the James and Presley versions.

In 1986, the band Fine Young Cannibals' cover version of the song, which featured backing vocals by Jimmy Somerville, reached No. 8 on the UK Singles chart.

The Fine Young Cannibals' music video for the song was filmed in black & white, and remains so for the majority of the song. However, the video is noted for its innovative use of colorization, following the bridge section of the song. The video pays its homage to Elvis, both in its use of the monochrome filming (common during Elvis' early career) and the shiny spangled suits that the band wear in the second half of the video.
