man in a chicken suit? if I find it in my travels...

pubcrawler...it's yours
I returned my mum's collection of singles on Christmas Eve and couldn't resist a peek at their vinyl LP's. ( sh'es getting morbib saying things like.."who'll want my music when I die? no one!!" oh mamma, how wrong you are.
Anyway I snaffled "Johnny Cash and the Tennessee Two - Story Songs of the Trains and Rivers" to bring home to tape onto cassette.) He has a song called "Big River" and so does my friend Troy Cassar-Daley. We live in what is known as Big River Country( the Clarence Valley) nine feet high...and risin'. Cool.
I was checking out the el cheapo CD's in Big W yesterday and found treasure imho....for only $6.98,a bargain!!
"Johnny CASH- Super Hits" 10 terrific tracks, some of them LIVE....woohooooo, bravo.So now I know Kris Kristofferson wrote "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down" ( got lost in the music singing along to that one) and a great version of "Jackson" with his wife. I think Michael Hutchence did a version of that with Jenny Morris, not quite sure who that was..."we got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout..."
But one I hadn't heard, and even my 17 year old son got a kick out of it...."One Piece At a Time" loveth it...."got no tail fin, honey do you want to go for a spin?" what year is it? well.... '57,'58, '59.....'60,'61...."
He must have had a TV show way back when...I think I recall watching it with my dad, the Carter Family featured a lot. Mum says dad hardly listens to music these days...that's sad. He needs a DJ to "hit pick" for him.
I listened to the rest of "The Gospel Road" the other day. Another song I like "Children" laughing little children.....

I actually had Cash on my list of baby names for boys at one stage. Yep...I quite like the man in black.....what have I ever done , to deserve even one, of the pleasures of known...what could I ever do, that was worthy of you, and the kindness you've shown...
Happy New Year music, johnnycashmusiclovers

Thanks, cass. Actually, I just bought JC's autobiography today and it turns out I had the "Chicken Suit" thing wrong. Cash actually recorded a song called "Chicken in Black," a self-parody, and it was released on vinyl, as a 7" single. I'm gonna try to find the mp3.

Oh, and I really dig "One Piece at a Time" as well. Fun storytelling and the ending jams.

I just saw the video for his new song, 'Hurt' on Much Music the other day. It's one of the saddest songs I've ever heard! Beautiful, though. It kind of reminds me of 'Bad' in the way it builds with the drums and piano (as opposed to guitar, the way 'Bad' does).

For you that dont know, Hurt is a Nine Inch Nails song.

I saw the video last night too, my roommate loved it. He was a NIN fan back in the day.

I love that man oh so much.

Huge fan of multiple songs "I've been everywhere" springs to mind at the moment...

Johnny Cash video for "Hurt"

Are you surprised to see this video being played on VH1!!!!!!!????

I think it's great to see old people (and I mean really old) mixed in with younger artists.

The song is incrediblably moving and the images from the video are hypnotic.

Would we have ever seen the NIN version on VH1? Thats my question. Kinda seems like a double standard, its still the same lyrics, same song.

I am SO incredibly happy VH1 is showing the "Hurt" video! That is a huge step toward recognition of good, old-fashioned music.
If any should have a spot on a major music network it's Johnny Cash and I applaud their decision to play it.

Go Johnny! He's an inspiration, because he's been there and done that....and being 23 years old I find it comforting that a man like Cash can still find happiness and sorrow (i.e. "Hurt") this late in his life. It means that the older we get, the wiser we become. And I find this is relaxing. It means that Johnny knows about as much about life's answers as...heck.....Lil' Kim, or Creed, or U2. Wholly Shit! What an awesome revelation!!!!!!!!!!

Man! I always end up starting threads after someone else.

To the mods: I'm sorry about this and feel free to close it. Although, you can't have too many Johnny Cash threads can you?

As for the question about whether or not VH1 would have played the NIN version of the song: I doubt it, but who would have thought they'd play the Johnny Cash version? I can honestly say I'm more shocked they are playing the Man in Black.
