El "temazo" del dimecres. Elvis Presley - "Allways on my mind"



En les darreres setmanes, o mesos, les cadenes televisives ens passen tot sovint l'anunci de la loteria espanyola, "El Gordo de Navidad", que aquest any està protagonitzat per "La Gorda" evasora fiscal, Montserrat Caballé, i quatre artistes més d'aquells carregats de caspa: Raphael, Marta Sánchez, Bustamante i la Niña Pastori. 

Aquests cinc cantants s'encarreguen de destrossar aquesta bonica peça, interpretada meravellosament per l'Elvis Presley en la gravació realitzada al març del 1972, reversionant-la com "aquí está la navidad". Cada cop que la sento em venen arcades.

He cercat la lletra de la cançó original, una peça d'amor, que parla de sentiments que surten del cap i no del cor com diuen algunes cançons super cursis. No sóc una persona especialment avesada a tocar aquest tema, però mira, avui estic una mica tonto... serà el Nadal.


Maybe I didn't treat you
Quite as good as I should have
Maybe I didn't love you
Quite as often as I could have
Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
Give me, give me one more chance
To keep you satisfied, satisfied

Maybe I didn't hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you
Im so happy that you're mine
If I make you feel second best
Girl, Im sorry I was blind

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
Give me, give me one more chance
To keep you satisfied, satisfied

Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time
You were always on my mind
You are always on my mind
You are always on my mind
