Johnny Cash – Hurt
I find that video really hard to watch for some reason. My dad was a big Cash fan and there’s something about the sentiment and the ‘decay’ of Cash in that video that reminds me of my father in his last couple of months.
Aside from that, a proper artist that appeals to such a broad set of folk.Posted 4 years agobjj.andy.wMember
Both my parents were cash fans so grew up listening to him. Kinda forgot about him when they passed away in my early 20’s but when I herd Hurt for the first time my wife couldn’t understand when tears welled up in my eyes, the memories of my childhood came flooding back. Watched the film walk the line and she’s now a fan as well.Posted 4 years ago
Kimbers- fantastic song, could (and do) listen to it over and over again 😉
Johnny Cash looked after a Canadian lad I know, when he was a kid. JC used to stay at his parents ranch (set up for horse riding and stuff). The lad says he had no idea who he really was then (1980’s).Posted 4 years ago
You do get a real sense that he recognises the mistakes he made and the impacts on his family – must be hard viewing for them.
Personal Jesus is a favourite here tooAlexSimonSubscriber
Rick Rubin deserves some of the credit too – he seems to know what he’s doing!
I’ve got all of those American Recordings – I’ve got an appalling memory for names, but there’s some absolute gems.
EDIT: I can’t believe that was 1994! The music is timeless, but I still can’t believe it’s almost been 20 years since.Posted 4 years agochakapingSubscriber
Saw a fascinating doc about JC on Sky Arts recently, might still be on rotation…Posted 4 years agoninfanMember
JC completley owned Hurt, no doubt about it – though there’s a particular vulnerableness to Trents version and when I’ve seen him perform it live its still ‘got it’
The first time I really listened and understood the depth of Depeche Mode’s personal jesus was the cash versionPosted 4 years agoPyroMember
The only music video to bring me to tears, that. Released in March, June died in the May, Johnny followed her four months later, just brought home the “everyone I know goes away in the end” line.
Less Cash input, but have a look for “The Million Dollar Quartet” as well. A random jam session at Sun records, between Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis…Posted 4 years ago
