Fine Young Cannibals – Suspicous minds

Fine Young Cannibals were a British band formed in Birmingham, England in 1984, by bassist David Steele, guitarist Andy Cox (both formerly of The Beat), and singer Roland Gift (formerly of the Akrylykz). Their 1989 album, The Raw and the Cooked, topped the UK and US Album charts, and contained their two Billboard Hot 100 number ones: “She Drives Me Crazy” and “Good Thing”. In 1990 the band won two Brit Awards: Best British Group, and Best British Album (for The Raw and the Cooked).Their name came from the 1960 film All the Fine Young Cannibals starring Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood.

Suspicious Minds” is a song written 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 seventeenth and last number-one single in the United States. Rolling Stone later ranked it No. 91 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

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 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. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Fine Young Cannibals Suspicious Minds lyrics:
We´re caught in a trap, I can´t walk out,
Because I love you too much, baby.
Why can´t you see what you´re doin´ to me,
When you don´t believe a word I´m sayin´?

We can´t go on together with suspicious minds;
And we can´t build our dreams on suspicious minds.

I saw an old friend I know, I stop and say hello,
Would I still see suspicion in your eyes?
Here you go again, ask me where I´ve been,
You can´t see the tears I´ve cried – tears I – tears I´ve cried.

We can´t go on together with suspicious minds;
And we can´t build our dreams on suspicious minds.

Oh, let out love survive, I´ll dry the tears you cry.
Don´t let this good thing die, you know,
I have never lied to you, no, no, no!

We´re caught in a trap, I can´t walk out,
Because I love you too much, baby.
Why can´t you see what you´re doin´ to me,
When you don´t believe a word I´m sayin´?

We can´t go on together with suspicious minds;
And we can´t build our dreams on suspicious minds.

We´re caught in a trap, I can´t walk out,
Because I love you too much, baby.
Why can´t you see what you´re doin´ to me,
When you don´t believe a word I´m sayin´?

We´re caught in a trap, I can´t walk out,
Because I love you too much, baby.
Why can´t you see what you´re doin´ to me,
When you don´t believe a word I´m sayin´?
