* "Chicken in Black", which is often claimed to have been recorded as a TakeThat to Creator/ColumbiaRecords, who had been treating him poorly for years (though Robert Hilburn's biography ''Johnny Cash: The Life'' reveals this isn't the cast at all: Columbia offered the song to Cash, who loved it and had no trouble recording it, only to lose interest when his colleagues disappoved). Ironically, it actually became a hit and raised his status with Columbia for a time. The best thing about it is that John's delivery is pretty straight-faced and serious. Also had a legendary tongue-in-cheek [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_uM87NTFW4 music video]], complete with chicken brain transplant!

Added DiffLines:

* Actually, considering Cash's reputation of recording so many somber songs during his career, he also had a very large repertoire of humorous songs, ranging from gallows humor like "25 Minutes to Go" to ironic songs like "The Man Who Couldn't Cry" which often had audiences in stitches when they realize the song actually pokes fun at many of the trope associated with sad ballads. In 1967, he even released an entire album of comedy songs, ''Everybody Loves a Nut''.
