Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here
Taken from the song Hurt by music legend Johnny Cash, from his final studio album American IV: The Man Comes Around (2002). Cash’s version of Nine Inch Nail’s song (and its highly emotive video), was a huge success and has long been one of my favourite covers.
A great man
He left behind such wonderful music. A real icon of modern music.
I have his complete recordings
I salute you 🙂
Apparently even Trent Reznor prefers this to the original.
That wouldn’t surprise me.
Cash’s cover is the best I’ve heard of this song!
It’s incredible. And one of the most powerful videos ever. Im struggling to think of a more emotive one.
A legend. Thanks, Alex.
That’s for sure. He had so many brilliant songs. Ring of Fire, When the Man Comes Around and The Wanderer are my other favourites.
My favorite cover.
It’s really up there for me too. Vocally it’s probably my favourite. Musically Roxy Music’s cover of Jealous Guy.
