    Cheers, RM

    My sentiments exactly. Just seeing the link to it gives me a chill. One of the most beautiful/painful pieces of music I’ve ever heard/seen.

    Love the song. Love Johnny. Dearly.

    But I'll be the contrarian who says that his cover doesn't hold a candle to the original.

    That is very touching. Towards the very end of his life with the guy who wanted him to make more albums. Interesting how he calls his things an empire of dirt with no value.

    That's the kind of honesty that the music business rarely goes for.

    There was a thread some time ago here on TDPRI which cover songs are better than original. I posted this video. I always get chills too when I listen to this song.

    That is a fantastic song and Cash’s version is so moving.

    Trent said the song belongs to Johnny.

    I'd say he's right

    I watched the whole Johnny Cash phenomena unfold, though I was a kid when he came on the scene. He was sort of cool, but didn't really fit in the college tour type musicians scene at first. Then something happened, and Johnny kind of became cool. Then he became big in more ways than one, he was skinny as a rail, then he BIG! I watched him on his TV show, he was bigger than life.

    Johnny really didn't have any gripe coming. Just like Tom Bell looking out the window across the way in No Country For Old Men after he retired, everyone gets to that point where it's all pretty much behind them. You're sitting there one day looking out the window, and know beyond a shadow of a doubt your best days are behind you. That doesn't mean it's over though. If he would have just taken up golf he could have been out working on his game right to the end! :lol::lol:

    Yeah he certainly could get very, very dark when he wanted to. RIP Johnny!

    If I may add.....this video also gives me chills. Another "pulling into the final station" song by a great artist, not quite as dark as Cash's, but sad and poignant regardless.

    Johnny might have felt the same way, but he didn't write the song. Trent Reznor wrote the song, like BT wrote even Trent said it was Johnny's song after he covered it though. I'm older than Johnny was when he died. I'm not going down that maudlin road until I have to, and then I'm going to try not to. Johnny was an OLD man at 70 when he covered Hurt. My son suffered pain, and general degradation of life far beyond what Johnny did, and he never got to the point where he gave up, until his mortal body just failed him one day. I would much rather face the end like my son, and I hope I can, than like Johnny is doing in the video.

    I am not saying one word against Johnny's perhaps finest piece of work. Having said that I can watch the video and not want to cry, because I know from having lived through the time period he did, he had any, and everything a man could want. What more could he have asked for? We come into this world with nothing, we go out with the same stuff we got here with, it's what we do in between that counts.

    Two "farewell" songs from Johnny that I think are better than his Hurt cover. One with his daughter Rosanne, and one with his wife June.
