K is for Michael Kiwanuka


“Love & Hate” is a fantastic song. Mr. Kiwanuka really moves me with these lyrics. And the quietly soaring guitar toward the end raises the hair on my arms. If you play the video, be warned that the sound gets muffled when the point of view shifts behind the sound booth (there is nothing wrong with your speakers).



For K, I’m going to make up Knotty Pine, my ode to the final episode of “American Horror Story: Coven”. Hearing Jessica Lang’s evil character howl upon recognizing her eternal afterlife always makes me grin. My fake Knotty Pine foursome, however, plays old school country and western. One of the guys plays a wicked banjo.
I can’t resist sharing the great Johnny Cash covering Trent Reznor’s “Hurt”.

  2. I should be well educated with bands by the time the ABC challenge is done. Johnny Cash did have a sound all his own.

  4. And, there he is: Mr. Cash. That song by him makes me cry, which is why it is my Lifeblood Song for Letter H! Good choice, Darla. Hugs.

    1. I'm sorry to make you cry, though I understand the reasoning. Hugs to you, my dear. And there's a great article about the song writer's original performer reacting to Johnny Cash's version here: http://www.musicradar.com/news/guitars/trent-reznor-talks-johnny-cash-168199
