Monday Daytime Random Live Thread

This is one of our daily threads. One is posted each week day and then another one to cover Sat/Sun. We provide this as a place for Dolphins fans and even our friends from other blogs to come and talk all things football or otherwise. This is an open thread so if you see someone not talking football do not get offended but also do not be afraid to throw out your HSO's (hot sports opinions) out on the latest Dolphins move or non move.

As this is a day time thread and not a night time CKC please keep the conversation PG. Also I do not care if you post picks during these thread's but try and keep them at or below the maximum of three per person and as always place something in the subject line so that people may close them. Also please to not post very large images or GIF's. These rules are to keep the thread load time from slowing down for those on slower connections.

Trent Reznor was honored, but worried about Johnny Cash's cover of his song "Hurt." When he heard it, he thought it was so good, it was like "losing a girlfriend."

Tent Reznor is the frontman of the band Nine Inch Nails. The 1994 album The Downward Spiral was notable for a song called Hurt, featured on the album. The song was so well received that it was nominated for a Grammy in 1996. Fast forward a few years to the end of Johnny Cash’s life and career. Johnny Cash recorded six albums (a few were released posthumously) in a series of American recordings that in part featured covers of other songs like U2’s "One," Depeche Mode’s "Personal Jesus," or Beck’s "Rowboat." Among these covers was Hurt, on the fourth American recordings album, American IV: The Man Comes Around, released in 2002. Cash’s cover of the song won a Grammy, albeit for best music video. When Reznor was asked if Cash could cover his song, he was flattered but worried that it was too gimmicky. Once he saw the music video, however, his mind changed. He famously said the following in response: "I pop the video in, and wow... Tears welling, silence, goose-bumps... Wow. [I felt like] I just lost my girlfriend, because that song isn't mine anymore... It really made me think about how powerful music is as a medium and art form. I wrote some words and music in my bedroom as a way of staying sane, about a bleak and desperate place I was in, totally isolated and alone. [Somehow] that winds up reinterpreted by a music legend from a radically different era/genre and still retains sincerity and meaning — different, but every bit as pure."

I know I normally reserve this amazing piece of music for Monday's following a Dolphins loss but I found this little blurb and thought I would post it with the video. Besides I do not expect to have to play it much the rest of this year.
