I See A Darkness

This is in response to Berg's posting of the Cash version of this song. Which is good.

The original, though, is stunning.

Easily placed on Side 1 of the suicide soundtrack.

Funny. This song always makes me feel better.

Lets put the suicide soundtrack together. Ten songs.

Go!

I feel this is a song about staying alive. Depends on perspective. John Cash was a singer, not a songwriter. Bonnie Billy was a song writer, not a singer. Again, my opinion.

I'll think about suicide songs(again). Right now I have to clean the house before the woman comes home and beats me.

I like the comparisons between the two versions. Covers make you relisten to lyrics from a different perspective. Here are a few suicide mix nominations:

Johnny Cash – Hurt (NIN cover)
Jawbreaker – Jet Black
Tiger Army – F.T.W.
Rolling Stones – Paint it Black
