A Satisfied man, by Johnny Cash

I'm listening to A Satisfied Mind by Johnny Cash, from the OST of Kill Bill volume 2. Tarantino's taste is perfect for nights when you don't know what to listen to.

But that's not what I wanted to say: I wanted to say that the lyrics of that song are not particularly brilliant, but the way they're sung makes them brilliant. When Camaron de la Isla died, Paco de Lucía was asked by a random, stupid journalist why the songs of Camaron had little social connotations, given that he was a gipsy and lived quite a hard life. Paco de Lucía replied: "well, the social connotations are not to be found in the lyrics, but in the way Camaron sung them".
