1969: Elvis had a huge #1 hit with the song Suspicious Minds. It was the last chart topper, although he did have some success with subsequent songs in the pop and country charts): '69 Kentucky Rain, '72 Burning Love, '76 Moody Blue, Way Down (released just weeks before his death), '77 My Way (Released after his death), 2002 A Little Less Conversation (remix by Junkie XL).
7/69 - Presley attacked the material with a fiery determination. “He was all over that stage,” producer Felton Jarvis recalled. “I mean, he almost hurt himself. He was doing flips and cartwheels & all kinds of stuff. On ‘Suspicious Minds’ [which made its debut on this night], he’d be down on one knee and do a flip across the stage and just roll. He was about half crazy.” After the final song, Elvis left the stage & gave his manager a big hug, his body shaking from spent energy & raw emotion.
