If You Could Read My Mind

Been mulling over bits and pieces to add to Fragments of Fiction. Sometimes just listening to iTunes does it. Here are links to Johnny Cash and Gordon Lightfoot singing If You Could Read My Mind.


And just for the heck of it here is Johnny's cover of Hurt by Nine Inch Nails

"What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end"

This clip carries such emotion. I love it. I may run it again too.

I can't even listen to Cash's last album. Too friggin' sad.

I met him once. He shook my hand and said (no bullshit) "I'm Johnny Cash - what's your name?"

When I told him he says, "It's a pleasure to meet you" and I knew he meant it.

Mark, that is a nice story and nice to hear about someone so famous. Also, I left one last comment for you on the gun post.

It is powerful.


I like it, but sad stuff grabs me. Johnny Cash always struck me as being genuine.

Misanthrope -

Gotcha. Left you one last one back.


Re Cash, it was a really cool moment in time, let me tell you. Thanks for appreciating it.
