Hurt by Johnny Cash March 2003 From The Album: “American IV: The Man Comes Around” Genres: Acoustic Rock, Country, Alternative
This emotional piece was created by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails. Cash’s cover of the song moved Reznor so deeply, that it almost seemed like Cash’s version was the original. The song literally brings me to tears every time I hear it, and the lyrics pierce the soul like an emotional arrow. It also is important to know that this was one of Cash’s last songs, as he died months later. In the video, you can tell that Cash’s health is dwindling, but his deep and crooning voice shines out like a last hurrah. His excellent guitar skills are also absolutely beautiful in this song. The video also shows Cash at his prime, and tells his life story. Some of the lyrics really hit hard for me, and I’ll discuss some of them now. “Everyone I know goes away in the end”. This is extremely deep, and basically means that everyone will die at some time, and nobody’s immortal. The chorus also seems like a plea of desperation and demise, which gives the listener a shocking truth about the fragility of human life.

Sexualizer (feat. Flash Arnold) by Perturbator from the album “Sexualizer” 2013 (info about album from en.wikipedia.org) Are you guys ready for an incredibly amazing Electronic Dance piece? I sure hope so! I have praised Perturbator before on his powerful music, and the same can be said for this smashing track! It starts with an epic retro sound, and then the smooth guitar, drums, and other Electronic instruments start playing. The guitar is incredibly prominent in this piece, and the player puts his heart into the strumming. Near the end of the piece, we are treated with a jaw-dropping guitar solo that’s guaranteed to melt your face! I highly recommend the piece to anyone who likes an awesome Dance music. I’d love to hear what you guys thing of this piece in the comments section below.
