Cover vs. Original

Personal Jesus

The Johnny Cash cover is a blues/boogie-woogie version featuring acoustic guitars and piano. Of course everyone knows the Depeche Mode style, I assume.

I've always loved the Depeche Mode version but it has to be said that Cash's interrpretation does have an edge to it. Ideally it should be re-released with DM's music and Cash providing the voice.

I really like something from each one, the decadence of Johnny Cash is supreme and Depecho Mode deserve the creators creadit of course.

mm... I personally prefer the Johnny Cash version, but everyone I know seems to think that is the original, annoying when it's not...

The cover by Cash is one of the best songs ever. It's got so much power in it. Hear it one time and you're hooked
