I think CCR's cover of "Heard it through the Grapevine" might be the best ever.

Because this is a horrible cover, and is nowhere near as good as the original.

Cash uses his voice as an instrument to convey that regret. He had a wonderful, weary voice at the end of his life.

Completely agree
quote:

The lyrics of Hurt are pretty silly and they are whiny as hell.


quote:

Cash is able to recontextualize them because, well, he's a far more gifted singer.

Agreed that he's a more gifted singer, but no, the lyrics are the same, and the context of them doesn't change, because their coming from Cash.

While Reznor might not have had as long a battle with life as Cash, he still had struggles.
quote:

I'm saying Reznor is a poseur.

So, no, Reznor was not just pretending.

So, IYO, Cash is able to take everything about the song, which sucks, and make it good, because he was a grizzled dude. Gotcha

You'd probably hate my other favorite cover, then. Tool's cover of No Quarter

to praise his, and bash Trent's is silly.


Agreed. Personally, I still prefer the NIN's version of this song over Cash's, and I'm a big Cash fan.
