Johnny O'Bloggin's Musical Monday..........

I will be spending another week on the Johnny Cash theme. This song is entitled "Hurt".
Originally written in '94 by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails. MicroDot touched on it during the last musical thread.  Nine Inch Nails, or NIN, is of the Industrial Rock/Metal genre. Trent Reznor is an amazing artist. Like Dave Byrne of Talking Heads, Trent writes all the music himself, and plays all the instruments during recording.
Here is "Hurt", by Nine Inch Nails:

Now, what I find truly amazing is the music that Cash has covered. Plus how wonderful of a job he does with it. When Mr. Reznor was approached by Cash, it is reported that he called it an honor, and gave him his blessing. I heard rumors that Trent even helped Mr. Cash with collaboration, but I do not know if it is true. I do know that the man who directed most of NIN's videos, directed Johnny Cash's video. Anyways, here's "Hurt" performed by Johnny Cash, released in '02. A wonderful rendition. Hope you enjoy both............................
