The song caught Elvis’s attention by way of one of his bodyguards. He recorded the song within weeks of his separation from wife Priscilla.

Filmed in 1972, the video shows Elvis singing "Always on My Mind" in the recording studio.

The classic song that has been performed by many other artists, but Elvis’s version truly stands out.

As he sings the song in the recording studio, one can’t help but get goosebumps. The song, originally titled "You Were Always on My Mind", was written by Johnny Christopher, Mark James, and Wayne Carson.

The emotional love song tells the story of someone who admits they didn’t always show appreciation for their partner but wants them to know they were always in their thoughts.

WRITTEN IN TEN MINUTES

Co-writer Wayne Carson is said to have written the song while sitting at his kitchen table. He said it took about ten minutes and put the song on the back burner while he worked on other projects.

"Always on My Mind" went on to become one of Elvis’s most well-known songs. The YouTube video of him recording the song in the studio has been viewed nearly 5 million times.

Today, Elvis is regarded as one of the iconic performers of all time. During his heyday, he filled small venues to stadiums with adoring fans.

ANOTHER MEMORABLE "THE KING" MOMENT

He continues to have fans, even from newer generations, who would flock to his former home in Graceland that has been turned into a museum.

Another old video of The King that surfaced recently online is a scene from the film "Come On Everybody", where his character Lucky gets on stage with Ann-Margret’s character Rusty.

The duo dances to the song and flaunts some classy and memorable choreography. The traditional hip-shaking, which is iconic of Presley, is apparent along with some other fantastic dance moves.
