DEF: Willie Nelson “Always on My Mind”
Dating back to 1975, country music superstar Willie Nelson has made thirteen appearances on Billboard‘s Hot 100Â chart, with seven of those songs hitting the Top 40. Nelson’s biggest pop music hits are a pair of songs that reached number 5. While his duet “To All the Girls I’ve Loved Before” with Julio Iglesias reached that position in 1984, Nelson’s first trip to the Top 5 occurred two years earlier. Exactly 35 years ago — on this date in 1982 — Nelson’s song “Always on My Mind” climbed to its peak position of number 5. To commemorate that anniversary, “Always on My Mind” by Willie Nelson is today’s Daily Eighties Flashback.
