Thoughts on Songs with Metallica
Not the definition of your typical "power balland" well, let's consider it that way for comminication reasons. Therefore, we've got this power ballad, with nothing but power riffing and songwritting in general and it's a about a man prisoned in his own body, after taking part in war. "Johnny Got His Gun" movie clips can be seen on One's videoclip, as it could easily be that movie's soundtrack, if chronicles could match.
THE most well known Metallica song -for people who have nothing to do with rock, it wouldn't come as a surprise if they considered Metallica a "one hit wonder" band, due to that- most covered one, no surprise when I'm at a bar sipping my cocktail when a chill-out House cover of "Unforgiven" servers in the background. The lyrical play between "young boy" and "old man" it's sentimental as hell, making this song a genuine top hit and deep brilliant song, nonetheless.
