Pet Shop Boys - Always On My Mind

| Kerri

Maybe I didn't treat you
Quite as good as I should have
Maybe I didn't love you
Quite as often as I should have
Little things, I should have said and done
I just never took the time...

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Maybe I didn't hold you
All those lonely lonely times
And I guess I never told you
I'm so happy that your mine
If I made you feel second best
Well I'm sorry I was blind

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell, tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
Give to me, give me one more chance
To keep you satisfied, satisfied

Already a cover when Elvis released it in 1972 to become one of his standout songs, then a gigantic hit for Willie Nelson in 1982, Wikipedia says there are over 300 released recordings of "Always On My Mind". My New Wave loving heart is absolutely sure there is no better cover of this lovelorn tune than this one by the Pet Shop Boys from 1987. It also happens to be the PSB's most-listened track on Spotify, although it's from their second-highest selling album, Introspective. (In 1993 the album Very overtook the top spot in PSB sales.)
