Heartwarming: Johnny Cash

  • "Bridge over Troubled Water".
  • "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face". Love at first sight, re-visited in old age—and still just as moving as that first moment, when that other person brought light to "the dark and the endless sky".
  • "Personal Jesus". "Reach out and touch faith", indeed.
  • "Look At Them Beans". A poor farmer dies. The next year his family is astounded when their land yields a huge crop. Corny, joyous and bittersweet all at the same time (the original version by Joe Tex, "Papa's Dream", is a little heavier on the bittersweet side, while Cash's is more joyous).
