4In My Life

This got my vote - of course, for the out-of-key singing... Alpha101, your comment is accurate but I didn't expect to see the last several words, LOL. It made my day! - Metal_Treasure

While I don't think anything can beat the original, Cash made it much more sad and nastalgic, with his low voice, and with him singing out of key. - Alpha101

5I Hung My Head

Another beautiful track by the Man in Black. - Alpha101

6Redemption Song

Who knew that Cash could do service to a Bob Marley song? Well, he most certainly did. - Alpha101

7No Expectations

While I prefer the Stones' version, this is a great cover. - Alpha101

8Personal Jesus

I love this by him. My brother loves it by Marilyn Manson. My sister loves it by Depeche Mode. - Britgirl
