Favourite Cover Version
I’m not usually a fan of cover versions, I tend to feel that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, and whilst the original of this song is amazing, this cover is beautiful, haunting and made all the more special by the fact that Johnny Cash was seriously frial, and died just seven months after recording the video.
As a tribute to a great man, a true artist, I give you, Hurt:

Great choice. Cover versions really need to surpass or at least bring something new to the original. This is a good example of the latter. My fave cover version is Hendrix’s version of All Along the Watchtower. Kicks Bob Dylan into a cocked hat.
Oooh, that’s a good one! You should be doing your own, it doesn’t matter if you change your mind, it’s so fun!
It’s definitely a good one…nice to mix things up a bit!
Ah brilliant choice – would have been mine too.
Also might have to partake! x
