Pet_Shop_Boys_Always_On_My_MindOnce again it is musical throwback Thursday.   Have all ways know Always On My Mind by the Pet Shop Boys as an original.  Turns out that is not true.  The song has was first released back in 1972.  Since then it has been covers by many famous artiest, like Elvis and Willie Nelson.  Since writing this post listened to those versions as well.  But I still like the Pet Shop Boys one.  Which you can see/hear > here or below.  That is off their 1988 album Introspective.
