#194 Johnny Cash – Hurt

It needs no introduction, and is far too obvious a song with which to mark the 10th anniversary of Johnny Cash’s death this week, but his cover of ‘Hurt’ never gets old. And, while the song itself documents his failing health and his final days of recording, the video serves both as a goodbye and as a celebration of everything his remarkable career was once all said and done. Heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time, it always bears repeating.
