Subject: RE: Review: Johnny Cash-'Hurt'
I'm not quite sure *what* to make of it. In the song's original form (as written/performed by Nine Inch Nails), it's a rather unsettling and creepy meditation on obsession and depression.
I'm still not quite sure what to make of Mr. Cash's version. In my opinion, it sounds almost more like a boozehound's last gasp on realizing what they've done to themselves.
Thought provoking in any case.
