The Ghetto

Ghetto grafitti children child povertyIf you happen to be one of the two followers of our blog, I must apologize for the monopolization of posts. But once more, it has not been so due to my having too much initiative but instead for my colleagues having none 😛

I’ll be fast – today song’s a great song whose original version I have known for a while, and recently I discovered two versions in two artists that I have listened to recently: The Cranberries (I did not forget my promise, but it is still not this time) and Dolly Parton (who has already been referenced in this blog due to a cover and an original).

But the main focus must go to the original version, which belongs to Elvis Presley, the King – not only because he must be given credited for having written a great melody and quite powerful lyrics (that unfortunately are still true more that 40 years later), but also because it is still the best version in my opinion (at least from the three I know). Hope you like it too 😉

Here you have both Dolly Parton and The Cranberries versions (these last one is especially good, in my opinion).
