I never bought any Cash records but will admit he had a strong presence.

One thing I love about Johnny Cash is that he could be very funny, and he could be incredibly serious. (That's just one of many things I love about his music.)

My favorite Cash song is "One Piece At A Time," I just find it so funny, and you know what? I could see people doing that. Plus, it's the song that opened my mind up to classic country.

Yeah....Hurt is good one for sure but as far as songs that he wrote....Cocaine Blues is probably the best in my opinion.


Oh....how could I forget Long Black Veil??? Many people didn't know how to respond to it at first because it's written from a dead guy's perspective.

If you dig this song and haven't heard the Dave Matthews version, I suggest you check it out. It's incredibly moving and amazing :-)

God's Gonna Cut You Down and Hurt are the best of his more recent stuff, but overall One Pice At A Time Stripes and Boy Named Sue are easily the best.

His cover of Nick Cave's "The Mercy Seat" is amazing. IMHO, it's better than the original and I'm saying this as a person who is a pretty big Nick Cave fan.
