For 17 years or more I thought that "Ring of Fire" was written by Social Distortion. Obviously, I didn't listen to much Johnny Cash growing up. I liked Social D back in high school, but then didn't listen to them for many years. When the Johnny Cash movie came out a while back I was exposed to some of his music, and also Ring of Fire seems to be on some television commercial now… I couldn't figure out why every time I heard that song something in my brain was getting confused. It hit me last night as I walked through my living room and heard it on a TV commercial. As I started to sing along I realized that I was hearing Mike Ness in my head. Yeah, I'm kinda dumb sometimes. I just had to look it up on the interweb to make sure that my "Swiss cheese" memory wasn't failing me, but my foggy memory was right - Social Distortion did record that song and that's why my brain always thinks of it as a Social Distortion song. I wonder if there are any other songs that I thought were originals that aren't.
