Johnny Cash and Wolverine

I just saw the new trailer for Logan, in what will probably be the last movie about Wolverine. The song used in it was Hurt, originally written and recorded by Nine Inch Nails, but covered by Johnny Cash. I had not heard either one but let’s just say I was immediately and fully captivated.

I LOVE musical moments like that in my life! If you haven’t heard and/or seen what I’m talking about, the trailer and full Johnny Cash cover of Hurt is below. Enjoy! And if you have, hell, enjoy it again!

p.s. I can’t wait for the movie, either!😉

It was during one of these sessions to build my Swing play list on Spotify that I found this awesome gem called the Oriental Swing that’s a little racist, but totally acceptable to me (an Asian) considering it was done in 1938.🙂
