Today has been Johnny Cash day in the pages of my LiveJournal friends. I can't say that I'm unhappy with that development. I guess it all started when detritus said that "Hurt" gave him goosebumps. Then I see jackal and even kitiara talking about Ye Ole Man In Black.
So I thought I'd perform a service to my faithful readers and list a handful of recent covers that Johnny Cash has recorded. The man doesn't care who did it first, he just looks to sing good songs.
- "Hurt" (Nine Inch Nails)
- "Personal Jesus" (Depeche Mode)
- "One" (U2)
- "Solitary Man" (Neil Young)
- "I Won't Back Down" (Tom Petty)
- "Rusty Cage" (Soundgarden)
