Guide Review - Willie Nelson - Always On My Mind
Though the music was mostly pop, tracks like "I'm A Memory" showcased Willie's unique guitar playing. "Always on my Mind" remains to this date as one of the most popular songs performed by Willie, while his version of "Bridge Over Troubled Water" is pretty low-key and easy to handle. A ticking time bomb is how a relationship is described in "Staring Each Other Down." "Turn out the lights" because "The Party's Over" for the man in this song about wallowing in pity.
When Willie puts out music branded as pop there is an unmistakable folk-country feel to his albums and whatever he touches has a certain feel or flair. If you are a fan or a new listener looking for a true classic from the star, give the digitally remastered 'Always on my Mind' a shot because it shows another facet of Willie's genius.
