"Hurt"

Over the weekend, my stepson mentioned this song in an email to Ken.
 
What a great song by a great musician, and a great man. I got to see Johnny several years ago with my family, and I remember him saying that he loved his band, and when it came time for him to go, he hoped that it was with his band behind him, "layin' down the backbeat." Johnny worked and recorded almost until the very end, so you came very close, my friend.
 
Love ya, Johnny.
 
Hello sun, hello moon,
This is the day when Johnny met June
 
Oh, and just so you know...if anyone ever dares to disrespect the Man in Black in my presence, it's go-time, Skippy. Seriously.

I started singing the song when I saw the title ;)  No disrespect to the man in black I've seen the movie and I love the song............but I love the Nine Inch Nails version.  Trent Reznor performed it at Reading Festival last year and it makes me cry :(
