“Hurt” by Johnny Cash is the dark song I’ve chosen. I love the contrast of this song: it’s stripped-back, acoustic simplicity, versus it’s terrifying lyrics (“I hurt myself today”). It’s simplicity means that the focus is on Johnny Cash’s haunting vocals. The line “What have I become?” line makes you wonder what whoever wrote it did to write that! The lyric “Everyone I know goes away in the end” is also very sad. Overall, it’s a perfect Halloween listen.
