|The Persistence of Memory tracklist|
Always On My Mind is the second song off the album The Persistence of Memory by Emigrate.
- This song is a cover of the ballad written by Mark James, Wayne Thompson & John Christopher Jr.. It is famously known for its cover versions by Elvis, the Pet Shop Boys and Willie Nelson.
- This song features Till Lindemann.
- Ten years prior, Richard was asked by the label to contribute to a cover album. He chose this song as it was apparently the only one that was left. The cover album eventually got canceled, but he kept the song since he had already done a lot of work on it. Richard, being impressed by Elvis' one-take vocal delivery, also planned to use the said vocal take and release that version of the song on the album Silent So Long. But due to copyright reasons, Richard was not allowed to use Elvis' vocals. Richard began to think who also had a powerful voice like Elvis. His first thought was about doing the song with Iggy Pop. The idea of recording the song with Till came very late..
- The drums on this song were played by Mikko Sirén.
