The 10 best songs about pain are not necessarily about the same type of pain. Some of the songs are about emotional pain and others about physical pain. The thing about music is what the writer intended may not always be how someone perceives the song. That’s the great thing about music; it becomes personal for each and every person.
- “Hurt” In 2002, Johnny Cash covered “Hurt” by Nine Inch Nails. Some may prefer the much harder Nine Inch Nails version, but the version by Cash is nice and slow. In Cash’s version of “Hurt,” the pain in his voice is very clear.
