NME.COM READERS VOTE ‘SUSPICIOUS MINDS’ BEST ELVIS SONG

On anniversary of his death, NME.COM readers cast their vote...

‘SUSPICIOUS MINDS’ is the best Elvis Presley song of all time, according to an NME.COM readers poll.

We asked you to name your favourite Elvis Presley track and the King’s ‘American Trilogy’ comes in at Number Two on the online poll, scoring 17% of the vote, just behind 24% for ‘Suspicious Minds’.

The Top Ten sees some surprising choices. While quite a few of Elvis Presley‘ best known hits such as ‘Jailhouse Rock’ and ‘All Shook Up’ are nowhere to be found, lesser songs from his vast canon, ‘Money Honey’ and ‘Guitar Man’, both feature.

And there is no place on the Top Ten for recent Number One ‘A Little Less Conversation’

Today, August 16, is the 25th anniversary of Elvis death.

The Top Ten runs:

1. ‘Suspicious Minds’ – 24%

2. ‘An American Trilogy’ – 17%

3. ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’ – 14%

4. ‘In The Ghetto’ – 12%

5. ‘Stranger In My Own Home Town’ – 10%

6. ‘Mystery Train’ – 7%

6. ‘Hound Dog’ – 7%

8. ‘Burning Love’ – 4%
