Cash's version of 9: Hung My Head

Johnny Cash - Hung My Head - 8/8 [332]

Sting - Hung My Head - 9/8 [522]

Both of these versions are smackdab cool. To me it sounds as if Sting is channeling a pastlife, but presently suits Cash's persona better. My rhythmic point here though is the way Cash handled the odd meter: he stayed in 4 but made it sound sort of odd. Cool. Some artists are so grounded here on earth and bound by four that the realms of the rhythmically of ODD aren't ready to seep into their consciousness....

From outer space,
Odd Time Obsessed Tune in
