Discovery

I didn’t know Johnny Cash covered U2’s ‘One’! Is there any song he couldn’t instantly make better than the original?

(Thanks to Dorian for the excellent ‘American III: Solitary Man’ cd that he got me for my birthday. I can not get enough of Mr. Cash).

The original man in black. ‘One’ is much better than his cover of Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Hurt’

Yes. “Rico Suave”. One hundred times zero is still zero.

The Johnny Cash/June Carter Cash cover of “Jackson” lacks the energy of the Lee Hazelwood/Nancy Sinatra original.
