@kresnich: Incorrect, this song was originally written by Petty and Jeff Lynne, Cash's version is a cover.
Report as inappropriate
Johanna, this was originally a Johnny Cash song. And he sung it better than anyone ever has still. Sam Smith or Tom Petty.
Report as inappropriate
It's sad that Sam Smith has to pay royalties for ''stealing'' this ''tune'' when this song sucks and should be grateful if Sam's beautiful music gains it any attention.

Did Greece get the message: in 1988, communism as a economic system lost. Time to back down Athens, as the Kremlin would never back you in a showdown with Berlin. Ironic that the Greek PM, an avowed Communist went to Berlin...a city once divided by communism. European politics: its not at all Greek to me.

RANDOM : People tend to hype climate change, it's a good conversation piece, in fact, I noticed no-one really makes campfires as they used to, everyone seeks indoor comfort, fire is a natural element needed to keep our world in simple balance, fire causes wind, rain , and car emissions are new , if you think about it, so, with that said, make a friendly camp fire and support electric vehicles and alternative energies

What do you know about standing your ground cooter? You're just a little b**ch that likes to start s**t. Standing your ground has nothing to do with going around harassing people & talking s**t about them. I'm standing my ground! Don't start nothing there wouldn't be nothing!
