(Ghost) Riders in the sky – Popular chord!

The last days there’s been one chord which has reached top three on the visit-counter: (Ghost) Riders in the sky!

This is a song Johnny Cash made a cover version of. The original song was written by Stan Jones in 1948, and has been recorded by at least 50 artists. Among my personal favourites (in addition to Johnny Cash of course) is the version performed by the Blues Brothers in the movie “Blues Brothers 2000”.

It has been said that Stan Jones wrote the song based on a story he heard as a kid. -Scary story for a kid..?

The single was released in December, 1958, and went straight to the top on US Billboards Hot Country Singles. The single actually stayed on top of the billboard for 6 weeks, and also made a respectable 32nd place on the Pop-charts.

Johnny Cash wrote the song himself, and as far as we know has the song only been covered by U2 (on the album Elevation).
