This was the perfect cover song for Cash. As intense as the original is, Cash brings a personal emotion to it. The album it's on also contains Cash covering Depeche Mode's Personal Jesus.
I have the 'Unearthed' box set with that and more, got it as a Christmas present a few years back. Lots of good stuff on that one.

While I don't necessarily consider Billy Joel underrated, I do think he doesn't get his due as a rocker and a songwriter.

These three songs demonstrate that nicely, and all happen to be personal favorites.

First, one you don't hear that often, Angry Young Man. Featuring some real good piano work.


Next, Scenes from an Italian Restaurant.


Next, a song that would fit right in lyrically with the likes of John Lennon or Warren Zevon. Pressure.

I always liked Steely.
Saw them in concert a couple of years ago. They sounded great.
They were here with Steve Winwood a while back at Red Rocks. Wanted to catch that but couldn't. Maybe next time.

Since Yacht Rock is all the rage around here, figure I'd add my two cents. Featuring a good song from a fantastic album.

From the album Aja
Steely Dan
"Deacon Blues"

My favorite song from one of my favorite albums. I'm beginning to sound like Richard Christie.

Yardbirds seemed to have more success when Jimmy Page was not in the band
