Johnny was a great artist/poet/social commentator. He was a country beatnick, a rebel. A troubled soul nearly all of his life. There will never be another like him.

Always liked "Home of the Blues", but I have to say that his cover of "Hurt" is the most fitting, affecting swan song an artist ever put to tape.

I heard that when Trent Reznor heard Cash's version for the first time, he cried and said it was Johnny Cash's song now.

That's a cool song. It was first recorded in 1959 by Hank Snow, IIRC.

Folsom Prison Blues

Hurt sure is an awesome sad song when performed by the Man In Black.

<cover your ears, liberal band namecheck warning>

Pearl Jam's cover of twenty five minutes to go on the Live at Benaroyah Hall is rather awesome too.

His cover of "Won't back down"

Sounds like a guy who never did and never would take shit from anybody.

Hell...I'm playing it right now.....

Ring of Fire is a classic. Social Distortion's got a great punk/rockabilly cover of it. Those guys are great!

Boy named Sue, Folsom prison blues, one peice at a time, hurt, ghost riders in the sky... damn, all of it is great.

IMHO, "I Saw The Light" and "I Walk The Line".
