Music meme, part thirty (and final)

Day 30 - Your favorite song at this time last year

Another difficult one. Since a few years I'm not up to scratch with what's new these days. The charts go completely beyond me, but also when talking about good new artists, I'm at a loss. Many friends automatically assume that I'm still with them when they talk about their latest discovery, that I'm as engaged as I was in the eighties and nineties.

Earlier this year I had to tell what the best record was of the previous year. Out of more than 11.000 titles in iTunes, I found exactly one that dated from 2010. Nice one, but not a song I would consider as the best of the year.

So this time I have to guess. What was I listening in May 2010? I'm not sure, but I guess there must have been more than one moment when I was listening to Johnny Cash. I have been listening to the various albums from the American Series for a few years now and they never manage to bore me.

My final pick is from American IV. A Beatles cover. One of the songs where Cash sounds most vulnerable. A great song to end this meme. Written by John Lennon, a childhood hero, sung by Johnny Cash, one of the best singers ever.

Johnny Cash - In my life




There are places I'll remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends, I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life, I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life, I'll love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life, I'll love you more
