"You'll Think of Me" is a song by Elvis Presley from his 1969 double album From Memphis to Vegas / From Vegas to Memphis.

Its first release on record was in August or September 1969 on a single as the reverse side to "Suspicious Minds".[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10] On December 1, 1970 the single "Suspicious Minds" / "You'll Think of Me" was re-released as part of RCA Victor's Gold Standard Series (together with 9 older Presley's singles).[11]

The single "Suspicious Minds" was certified Gold by RIAA for sales in 1 million copies in the United States on October 28, 1969. On March 27, 1992, it was certified Platinum.[12] It also was the South African single of the year.[citation needed]

Writing and recording history[edit]

The song was written by Mort Shuman.

Presley recorded it on January 14, 1969 at the American Sound Studio in Memphis, Tennessee (at studio sessions for RCA that were held there on January 13–16 and 20–23).[3][13]

Critical reception[edit]

Robert Matthew-Walker writes in his book Heartbreak Hotel: the Life and Music of Elvis Presley:

In the last song, 'You'll Think Of Me', there is a strangely disconnected opening which gradually builds to the basic tempo. The song, which lasts almost four minutes, is long for the material, but Presley manages to hold it together through the layers of sound.[14][15][16]
