always on my mind

I always thought that this song was originally by Elvis, but I just found out that it was actually covered by Elvis in the 1970's, and originally performed by Brenda Lee. As I read about Lee I was suprised to find she sang a lot of songs that I knew, but didn't know whose songs they were.

I also knew that Willie Nelson sang this song, because as a kid there weren't many records in the house, but Willie and his braids took up a good chunk of the small pile.

My favorite however has always been the Pet Shop Boys cover for their 1988 album Introspective.
