ETA3: oh man, I got so excited to post, I didn't even make it to see your videos until after I posted mine. I effectively "copied", as my children
would say lol.
I have to share two - I love the genre-bending aspect to both of these. The second maybe a bit on the "silly" side, though it was telling a true story
around the NWA feud, so I can appreciate it, even in my old age.
The first, though, my God, the FEELING imparted to the song really brought the meaning behind the song home to me for the first time. I loved The
Sound of Silence from the time I was a kid, but I with the Disturbed rendition...I just about can't even listen to the original.
ETA: I can't figure out how to do YouTube links on mobile ☆☆☆ETA2: I think I got it?! Let's see here...::types in silly reason for edit...press
edit button aaaaaaand....::

The Johnny Cash version of "Hurt"
Origionally written by Trent Reznor and performed by his band Nine Inch Nails,
when he heard Johnny Cash's version Trent said something alog the lines of "That song is no longer mine."
It's said that the label didn't even want to release it, thinking Whitney was crazy to believe anyone would want to listen to a song with a full 45
seconds before any instrumental accompaniment joined the mix. LOL
Even Dolly acknowledges that the song will forever be Whitney's, and today many still don't realize or know that the song was originally written and
performed by Dolly Parton.
