Hackskeptic’s 500 Greatest Songs: Johnny Cash – Hurt


383 – Johnny Cash – Hurt (2003)
Written by Trent Reznor
Produced by Rick Rubin
Label – American/Universal

This Trent Reznor approved cover really warrants as much attention visually as musically. The addition of the promo video works beautifully, recalling moments to treasure from Cash’s life and never has the drop of the piano key lid at the end of the song felt so significant as the life ebbs from his body.
