With all the flash-in-the-pan acts we hear on the radio today, it's nice to know that there are some musicians who have stood the test of time. Don't get me wrong - I like new music. Despite my husband's teasing I can be found singing “What Makes You Beautiful” by One Direction or dancing to “Happy” all over the house. It's just that we don't always know who's going to be popular next year, or even next week. I can, however, think of several musicians who have stood the test of time. My musical taste might not be the same as yours, but here are some who come to mind.
1. Johnny Cash
I think he belongs on the list of musicians who have stood the test of time because the Man In Black didn't just do country - he did “covers” of several recent-ish rock songs as well. Check out his version of U2's “One”, Depeche Mode's “Personal Jesus” and Nine Inch Nails' “Hurt”. His voice fits these songs perfectly, especially the last one.
