Cut of the Day: David Bowie Teams Up With Trent Reznor

Cut of the day: Tuesday March 25, 2008

Legendary singer David Bowie's duet with Nine Inch Nails performed live on their co-headline Outsider's Tour in September 1995.

NIN played each show on that tour first and while the backdrops where changed prior to Bowie's set, they covered several of his tracks including 'Hallo Spaceboy' and 'Scary Monsters'.

Bowie then joined Trent Reznor and co for two duets -'Reptile' and 'Hurt'

Today's video clip is the amazing 5 and a half minute version of 'Hurt' -- as good as Johnny Cash's cover of the 'Downward Spiral' album track??
