Welcome to Tunes For Tuesday!
The tune for today is honor of Wild Boy’s birthday tomorrow. WB’s favorite song is “Ring of Fire” by Johnny Cash. He sings it all the time and even got his preschool music teacher to sing it during weekly sessions at school (he still plays it even though WB is long gone from the school).
Although the original version by the Man In Black is classic and wonderful, I happen to love this version by Social Distortion. Mike Ness has a vocal quality that I think is the epitome of rock and roll. I have quite a few Social D songs in my regular running playlist. If you haven’t heard this version, you should and if you have already, you know you need to hear it again.
Play it loud and enjoy!
Cover or original? You choose.
