Old Vine In New Bottles

Bildergebnis für johnny cash hurt

One of those musicians that recorded covers galore is the country icon Johnny Cash. A lot of them are better than the originals or minimum interpreted in a very unique sound only he could do. Hurt was recorded after his wife June Carter died and shortly before left for heaven. From all of his cover versions I like this song best. He sings Trent Reznor's song by Nine Inch Nails in his very own style with his dark baritone over a wispy acoustic guitar and some piano chords. I hurt myself today / to see if I still feel and What have I become my dearest friend? / Everyone I know goes away in the end are some kind of legacy or suicide notes. Somber, dark and for eternity.

The best music video of all time

The Swede hat gesagt…

I've never thought about it that way before, but Charity Chic might well have a point.
