Default Johnny Cash

There has been a lot of media on Johnny Cash lately because of the new

movie thats out. I don't care for country music but I love Johnny Cash,

he did a lot for music in general. His voice just captures attention.

A lot of his early music was hardly country....he sorta fell more into the Rockabilly genre, like Jerry Lee Louis, Elvis, Some Early Roy Orbison....they later on his music became more Country Westren, which is still better than half of the crap music tha's put out today

I could go on for hours bout "The Man in Black", I also think that, while his later stuff was undoubtably Country Western, a lot of his early stuff like Cry Cry Cry and Folsom Prison Blues are more Rockabilly than Country, though Im not denying Rockabilly its country roots. There are so many awesome Johnny Cash Songs. I'll list my top 5 (in no particular order)

When The Man Comes Around (though not a fan of its religious message)
Folsom Prison Blues (I love "I shot a man in reno, just to watch him die, I also think its funny how he played this at Folsom Prison....even after he was told not to do anything to remind the prisoners that they were in prison)
Ring of Fire (totally got ripped off by Greenday....but thats neither here nor there, I also enjoy the Social Distortion cover)
I Walk the Line(just a great overall song)
Boy Named Sue (this is where he starts to sound more Country Western IMO.......this song is brilliant, I love the line "My Name is Sue, How Do you Do? Now Youre gonna DIE!!!!!)

EDIT:I have to make it my top 6, cause I love the song

Man in Black ("But just so we're reminded of the ones who were held back, Up front there oughta be a Man in Black" great line, this song is amazing....I may be wrong but I didnt notice it on anyone elses top 5 list, c'mon people)

I heard they are making a film of his life - could be painful.

i want to see that movie, hopefully it won't dissappoint. johnny cash is a legend, like most of you he's the only country artist i listen to. my top 5 favourites are:
One Peice at a Time
Rusty Cage (soundgarden cover)
Ghost Riders in the Sky
Don't Take you're guns to town
Big Iron

That soundgarden cover makes that song so badass it hurts. When the second peice comes in with "when the forest burns along the road..."

Amazing.

I saw the movie and loved it. I am now going to buy a greatest hits album. I should have been listening to him for a while now.
