Forever Is a Real Long Time
FlourishAnyway believes there is a playlist for just about any situation and is on a mission to unite and entertain the world through song. Long marriages are like fondant-covered wedding cake. They might look flawless, but taste 'em for yourself and you'll soon realize all is not as perfect as it seems. Anyone who has been married a long time can attest that there are good times—or good years— and then there are long spells that just aren't. They can also explain that the perfect person you exchanged vows with is not the one you live with day in an day out. But honestly, the same can be said of you, too, right? This playlist is a fun nod to those who have agreed to the vow of "better or worse" and have seen both things come true. And yet they keep on loving their sweetheart—or at least putting up with them—year after year. Some of these songs are serious and will make you think.
But when Johnny Cash sang anything, it immediately became his own. He was partially inspired by a newspaper story of a priest in New Jersey who was killed under a streetlight with witnesses watching. Perhaps most fascinating of all, Dill borrowed elements of the urban legend surrounding the grave of actor Rudolph Valentino. It seems that each year following the death of the legendary Italian screen star, a woman wearing a long black veil would lay a single red rose on the grave, drawing the attention of the press in the process. The majority of the evidence points to the Valentino phenomenon having originated as a publicity stunt, which was then carried on in subsequent years by copycats. Dill took his unfinished song to co-writer Marijohn Wilkin to hammer out the plot. What they came up with was a tale that transcended all of its disparate sources. Cash first recorded the song back in on the album Orange Blossom Special , which was notable for the inclusion of several Bob Dylan covers. On this initial studio recording, Cash is accompanied by his usual boom-chicka-boom rhythm and some angelic female vocals in the chorus. In fact, maybe it resonated with them too well.
