Texas - Inner Smile.

Not a fan of Irish band Texas but two of their songs made a big impact on my list of must have, the 1989 "I Don't Want a Lover", an awesome rock and rolling blues intinged song and this, 2000's "Inner Smile", which music video is inspired and based on Elvis's 68 Comeback Special. That's lead singer Sharleen Spiteri dressed as Elvis in his famous black leather suit and using prosthetics to resemble Elvis. The video clip was shot in London in November 2000 with a live audience and with the band members playing different roles as musicians and/or audience members (with Spiteri portraying various groupies). In one of the scenes, Sharleen (as Elvis) sings along with Sharleen. It is often assumed this scene represents Elvis and Priscilla Presley.
