“The Man in Black” & THE KING in White
Seems like most people miss the meaning in Johnny Cash’s nickname… yes, he is a badass, but in the lyrics of this song, you can hear the mournful spirit of a man dreaming of better days for all mankind.
And speaking of dreams… this is the finale from Elvis Presley’s famous 1968 “Comeback” special. First airing in December, it was going to be a Christmas song until Elvis heard this Walter Earl Brown song replete with quotes from the recently assassinated Martin Luther King.
Rock on, people… towards a better world.
