Johnny Cash - Hurt
This was actually a big surprise for me on the countdown, as I would have never expected such an artist to appear on the channel at all. Although he covers the song originally from Nine Inch Nails, you can feel the deep emotions he puts into this composition. To me, this rendition allows you to feel what the song is suppose to deliver, how some times will be difficult, how people change, and that what we do is not intentional even though it pains others. The last song he released, it's a magnificent piece by Cash, turning the whole message around with one word, and he couldn't have made it any better. At #12, may he always be remembered, through his music, the movie about his life, and his gift.
