This week, Gurdip guides Justin through what was happening in the world of popular music the week that Elvis's last #1 US hit, Suspicious Minds, peaked on the Billboard Hot 100, exploring the context around and stories behind some of the other hits that it was in competition with. From Sly and the Family Stone and The Beatles to the artificial bands The Cuff-Links and The Archies, it's peak 1969!
For Song of the Week, Justin digs into Elvis's live cover of LaVern Baker's "Tweedle Dee" after realizing there are less than 40 songs left to cover on the segment from the 1950s era of Elvis's career. Gurdip, on the other hand, continues his theme of going to bat for some of the least liked Elvis songs by spotlighting "Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce" from 1965's Girl Happy.
