    With respect, this is recent, not old.

    It's surely about 20 years old?

    Sorry should have explained the thinking behind the thread a bit better...

    It's music that passed you by. Sure, I've heard of Nick Cave. Just never heard Nick Cave. Now I have and... yeah I'm going to keep listening.

    So my thought was, what music have you recently heard that is new to you, but isn't actually new music. Maybe you've just caught Pink Floyd for the first time, or Nirvana, or Oasis... who knows.

    Or maybe you just have a piece of music you heard in a shop that you just can't shift.

    Johnny Cash does some good covers imo @magicsurfbus

    I find this almost unbearably poignant. More so than the original for me.

    Heck, I'm tearing up now!

    Oh damn these music threads!

    At a bit of a loss to know what might be new to others. (Bearing in mind everyone knows the Johnny Cash one.!)

    Feeling maudlin now.

    Just stuff that is new to you... not new to others. I'm under no illusions, I know others have heard Nick Cave.

    Hmm, I'm just wondering what is new to me,and how I will know.......that is, well, If I already know it, it's not new to me, but if it's new to me then I haven't found it yet................

    (Sorry, it's late! Well, late-ish Goes away to ponder.....................:rolleyes: )

    I was introduced to Tom Waits by my ex having never heard his work before and now listen to him a lot.

    It's amazing what music I have totally missed over the years.
    This one I found when I was looking at old posts on TES.
    Surprised that I didn't even know the name

    It's not Popular Music but I can remember the first time I heard this, in a lecture hall, and feeling transported by the close harmonies and sheer emotion that comes through. Of all music from around the world, this is what I listen to most.
    Edit: I put I here because it had previously passed me by.
