TOTW9: Johnny Cash – For the Good Times

This might be the first ever posthumous TOTW. But, such a brilliant singer, it’s not surprising. Is it going to worth finding time to go to HMV to buy American VI: Ain’t No Grave? Definitely.

Sadly, I can’t find any version of this track available online, even non-embeddable. The BBC can offer a sneak preview, but that’s it.

Instead, I’ll offer you another of his truly emotive covers. Hurt was originally done by Nine Inch Nails, and recorded with this Grammy award winning video in 2003 immediately before Cash’s death.

TOTW8: Leona Lewis – I Got You

I’m surprising myself with this one. Thing is, it is a good pop song. Well sung, energetic, catchy. OK, it’s no JEdward, but I’ve heard it enough times over the past week for it to get stuck in my head.

And now I’ve recovered my senses, here’s what’s actually is Tune of the Week
