  •  I like the NIN version better actually... (7+ / 0-)

    because the pain in that one is so...loud. This is a different kind of hurt than the hurt Reznor sings about in a way...

    I like both though.

    •  Even Reznor admits it's not his song anymore (8+ / 0-)

      I pop the video in, and wow... Tears welling, silence, goose-bumps... Wow. 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.
