I reckon it ain't cool unless it's old-school.

Eddy Arnold ~ Make The World Go Away

Eddy Arnold recently passed away. He was one of the biggest country hit makers ever. This youtube clip is obviously a plug for the poster's disc jockey service, but the audio of this classic song is excellent: Make The World Go Away

Amen.

There are so many great Johnny Cash songs....I'm sure my absolute favorite is his version of Trent Reznor's "Hurt" that he made before he died.

Here's some old Cash......they broke the mold when they made Johnny Cash.

Don't Take Your Guns to Town!


Folsom Prison Blues


I also came across a 70's version of Johnny doing a great cover of Vaughn Monroe's "Ghost Riders in The Sky" but the embed code is blanked out.

Also saw Johnny doing a great cover of The Band's "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down"

Levon Helm is hard to beat on the original though.

Johnny Cash's name can't be spoken aloud without mentioning his treatment of Trent Reznor's song "Hurt". I can't imagine there's anyone here young or old that has not heard this.

Absolutely the greatest pairing of a song and a singer ever.

We may not agree on much, but we certainly agree about Johnny Cash. I have every song he ever released.

Conway Twitty was a rockabilly star before he did country, actually. He was a cohort of Ronnie Hawkins. I have some of that old music on CD that Cody burned for me and left at my place.

One of my favorite songs by him is 'It's Only Make believe' *I have a soft spot for 50's music. I have his first album Conway Twitty Sings,every once in awhile I'll throw it on the record player and give a listen. My kids think I'm extremely old for playing records (and having cassettes) I haven't shown them my old 8 track of Freddy Fender yet. (I don't have a player or I would)

John Barry ~ Somewhere In Time

This achingly beautiful piece is the theme song to a movie starring Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeves:



The movie is pretty damn special, too. From wikipedia, here's John Barry and here's the movie.

Amen.

Sammi Smith ~ Help Me Make It Through the Night

This song was written by Kris Kristofferson. Sammi had a huge hit with it. There's another song on this youtube clip, too. I think it's "I'm Gonna Change Everything" by Jim Reeves, but I'm not certain. Anyway, here's Help Me Make It Through the Night.



About this lovely woman and talented singer, from wikipedia.

Amen.

Bobbie's been out of the public eye for a long time, but she certainly made her mark. This song was huge:

Stan Getz & Astrud Gilberto - The Girl From Ipanema

Most people I've ever discussed this song with fall one way, or the other, i.e., they either love it, or they hate it. I love it:



About Astrud, from wikipedia.

About Getz, from wikipedia.

Amen.

Are you sure about that ? Do you have the American triology, all five of them ? Then the "outtakes" from that series as well ?

Asking not to be a smartass, but to inform. I bought the "American recordings outtakes" cd from a German at a market. My comment was along the lines of "never heard of this", his reply was along the lines of "you should have heard of Johnny Cash, he's very famous".

moron

Honestly, not 100% sure. What I have is over 1300 mp3's - not organized by albums. Out of all of that body of work, my two favorites are the original release of "Ring of Fire", and his cover of "Hurt".

1300 should pretty much cover it. Friend of mine had "Ring of Fire" played at his cremation not so long ago as it goes.

Someone once remarked that whenever Johnny Cash recorded someone else's song, he made it his own. Personal favorite of mine is his cover of Nick Cave's "The Mercy Seat".

Worked local crew for him once, Royal Albert Hall, saw some of the show from a side of stage box.

Very off topic this.

Johnny is a lifelong favorite of mine. His distinctive voice and incredible versatilty in cross genre musicality were inspiring.

Here's another favorite "The Long Black Veil" sung with Joni Mitchell.
