    I’m not a fan of country either but I love some Cash tracks/covers.

    Try these too if you like Hurt;

    The Man Comes Around
    Help Me
    Gods Gonna Cut You Down
    Personal Jesus

    Very good. Whisperin’ Bob earlier played “When September Comes” sang with his daughter, also worth a listen.

    I’ve always thought Cash was over-rated, but that is one of the best covers I’ve heard. Listened to it over and over when it came out. Very poignant.

    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.

    I think I read somewhere that Trent Reznor was on record as saying that it was Cash’s song now.

    Almost prefer that version to NIN’s original, a bit more feeling in the JC version.

    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.
    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).
    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 too

    Trents own words of when he heard cash cover his song are quite emotional too, great track, both versions, live it is simply amazing!

    Agree with all of the above – definitely in my top 10 all time songs. Life, death, love…it’s all in that three minutes. Just incredible.

    Just come across JCs cover of NIN’s Hurt – what a great 3+ minutes of viewing and listening.
    I know it’s been out for ages and it’s old news -been busy.
    Google ‘cash hurt’ if you’ve not already.

    Proper artist

    Went to Glastonbury in 1994 with a load of mates none of them could understand why I wanted to go and seeJR Cash so I went on my own. They regret that now.

    I was there for that too. Hairs up on the back of my neck just thinking about it.

    Any man who can cover a U2 and a Sting song and make them sound as good as he does has a talent beyond measure.

    It’s a great cover version.
    I like to refer my work colleagues to the JC song “Oney” 😀

    Definitely in the top half of my all-time favourite list.

    Pretty neat to play too if you know your way around a few chords.

    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.

    The music on that “Hurt” sounds like Husker Du. A NIN, Cash, Husker Du mash-up probably wouldnt be many people’s 1st idea for a song.

    My mates don’t get it (or my family for that matter), but I love Johnny Cash, pretty much all of his music, seems odd for a 25 yr old who doesn’t like much other country music, or even listen to music that much, but it’s always cash I go to if I do.

    Saw a fascinating doc about JC on Sky Arts recently, might still be on rotation…

    Probably one of my favourite covers.

    Good song to play on the guitar too

    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 version

    If you’ve never heard it, I recommend At Folsom Prison. Fantastic album.

    That’s my funeral song nailed.
    Not a country fan but Cash is unique.

    Hurt is fantastic, obviously, but I Hung My Head does me every time. The feeling he puts into it is beyond words.

    I’m not so much a fan of his more modern stuff but I have to admit Mercy Seat is a powerful song.

    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…

    I see a darkness is great too. As for his many covers I think Sunday Morning Coming Down is the best..[video]http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ED5s1-Fe9FA[/video]

    Odd that I started this 10 years to the day since Johnny’s death – had no idea.
