Covers Fit For A King

As I’m sure you’re all well aware, Thursday marks the 30th anniversary of the passing of Elvis Presley. In light of that I thought I’d pull some of my favorites together for a video montage… Everyone grab a peanut butter and banana sandwich and enjoy!

Pete Yorn – Suspicious Minds

No Doubt – Suspicious Minds

The Flaming Lips – Suspicious Minds (Can you tell what my favorite Elvis tune is?)

Cheap Trick – Don’t Be Cruel

UB40 – Can’t Help Falling In Love

Willie Nelson – Always On My Mind

Tommy Emmanuel – Heartbreak Hotel

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – In The Ghetto

And I’d be remiss if I did not post the King himself covering some great tracks

Are You Lonesome Tonight?
