Saturday video break: I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry

The Cowboy Junkies take on Hank Williams:

I love the ethereal quality of Margo Timmins’ voice. Her singing just floats over the music. Not everyone can make that work, but she does.

And for the opposite end of the vocal spectrum, here’s Johnny Cash:

Cash is joined by Nick Cave, which is eminently suitable for this. What I can say about this is basically what I’ve said before about Cash’s version of “Bridge Over Troubled Water” – you just believe him when he sings these lyrics, because you just know he’s been there and lived it. His voice permeates the music, and you feel every word of it.
