Listening Post

I'm not sure if this video is meant to be ironic -- make a statement about how Johnny Cash felt a kinship with the poor and downtrodden then spend the next two-and-a-half minutes cycling through images of the wealthy and occasionally undeserving -- but it's a damn good song, regardless.

Here's God's Gonna Cut You Down.

This song kicks untold amounts of ass. Voices like his just don't come around often enough.

I always make a mental dedication to a certain someone when I hear it.

Clever Robert Byrd commentary?

Thanks for posting this. It's the type of amazing song that grabs you--has you singing along--regardless of your feelings toward the religious message. There's a pure musicial "truth" in this.

If I remember correctly, the video was released just after Cash passed as a tribute.
