What song is stuck in your head (or on permanent rotation in your CD or MP3 player) these days? Why does it speak to you?
I have always liked Johnny Cash as a recording artist, his songs and his voice pull at me, I suppose because they are so raw. My hubby and I became even bigger fans they day that my hubby went inot a chocolate shop called Teuscher’s on 61st Street and Madison Avenue and met Johnny Cash who asked if he could get our baby boy, who actually was just a baby back then, he was all of ten months old, a piece of chocolate and said that he was one of the most beautiful babies that he had ever seen. That is all that you have to do for a parent to get them to be your fan, compliment their baby, they will love forever.
When I first heard the song Hurt sung by Johnny Cash. I was convinced that it had to be his original, I was floored when I subsequently learned that it was actually a cover originally written by the Nine Inch Nails, who I happen to like as well. Johnny Cash could take any song and make it his own.
