Best Cover/Remake of a Song EVER!

People get a bit high and mighty when someone covers or remakes a classic song, especially when it was a signature hit for someone else. I tend to believe if the work is of a high quality then it is more than acceptable for the music-loving market.

There will always be the good (Def Leppard covering '20th Century Boy'), the GREAT (Ike & Tina performing 'Proud Mary'), the bad (too many artists doing too many Beatles songs to choose) and the UGLY (Celine Dion singing 'Shook Me All Night Long').

Here is what I believe may be the greatest remake of a song ever. This artist (the one and only Ray Charles) unseats one of my favorite singers, a man who is responsible for many of the greatest remakes ever as well as the greatest original songsā€”the one and only Johnny Cash.

Please enjoy this truly precious performance of 'Ring of Fire' by Ray Charles on the Johnny Cash Show. It is breath-taking and beautiful. It simply doesn't get any better than this. I'm certain June & Johnny would agree if they could.
