And that’s just not me saying it, it’s also the choice of NME who have compiled a list of the 100 greatest music videos. Here’s what they have to say about Johnny’s version of ‘Hurt’.
The montage of shots of Cash served a poignant purpose at the time; after Johnny’s death seven months later it became even more powerful. A fitting audiovisual epitaph.
Best bit: Those opening chords and that opening line ”I hurt myself today / to see if I still feel” – near perfection.
