Elvis Presley’s heartrending rendition of “Always On My Mind” has become widely celebrated, with Willie Nelson’s 1982 version adding to its fame; however, it was Elvis who first scored a hit with the song in 1972, pouring his emotions into the studio recording just weeks after his official separation from Priscilla.

The haunting vocals and genuine pain in his voice make this rendition a genuine tear-jerker, resonating with anyone who has experienced the anguish of a breakup or divorce.

The lyrics, penned by Mark James, Johnny Christopher, and Wayne Carson in 1970, beautifully express the regrets and “what ifs” of lost love, while Elvis’s powerful vocals and the poignant chorus “You were always on my mind” elevate the song to a soul-stirring experience.

The accompanying video, featuring rare footage of Elvis in the studio and heart-wrenching home movies of him with Priscilla, adds even more depth to the listener’s connection with the song.

Despite the pain of divorce, we can find solace in the fact that Elvis bared his soul through this powerful ballad, touching the hearts of millions of listeners worldwide.
