Pet Shop Boys – Always On My Mind

“Always on My Mind” is an American country music song by Johnny Christopher, Mark James and Wayne Carson, recorded first by Gwen McCrae (as “You Were Always On My Mind”) and Brenda Lee in 1972.  In 1987, the Pet Shop Boys performed a synthpop version of “Always on My Mind” on Love Me Tender, a television special on the ITV network in the UK. Commemorating the tenth anniversary of Presley’s death, the programme featured various popular acts of the time performing cover versions of his hits. The Pet Shop Boys’ performance was so well-received that the duo decided to record the song and release it as a single.
This version became the UK’s Christmas number one single that year. It went on to top the charts for four weeks in total, and reached number four on the US Billboard Hot 100.
