Wayne Carson (1943-2015)

Gotta admit, Wayne Carson‘s name didn’t mean anything to me, but some of his songs sure do, especially those recorded by the Alex Chilton with the Box Tops — “The Letter” and “Soul Deep.”  And, of course, “Always on My Mind.”  As great as Willie Nelson‘s version is, . . .

. . . it’s the Pet Shop Boys‘ cover that is “always on my mind”:
