Hurt, Hurt, Hurt. November 21, 2016

Posted by Retired Geezer in Art, Entertainment.

I had never heard this song until I saw the Johnny Cash video. I figured he wrote it.

Here are 3 versions of the song, including the original, (which is my least favorite).


Here’s Johnny’s video:





Which is your least favorite?

Bonus points if you remember this song, also named Hurt.

2. Sobek - November 22, 2016

The original version came out when I was in high school, so that’s the version I knew for a long time. Johnny Cash really made that song his own, and interestingly, the NIN guy agrees.

The bass player guy is really talented and fun to listen to. I think he goes overboard with the harmonics, but that’s a petty complaint. More importantly, though, is I don’t think he really hits the emotional high points that song needs. Trent and Johnny both get it.

NIN does some interesting sonic experiments in the original, but the last three notes are ugly and out of place. Worst part of the song.

I seriously never heard the original so I didn’t have any comparison but I agree that Johnny really made that song his own. That video was pure genius also.

I like the harmonics.

So there.
