Johnny Cash

During the year there many have been earthquakes felt or reported in many locations. Some of these locations are found in the Pacific Ring of Fire. This area usually illustrates where active volcanoes are, but frequent earthquakes can also occur in these areas.

"Ring of Fire" which was re-written by Johnny Cash and lyrics by his wife June Carter Cash is said to be his signature song. After having a dream, he said he envision the song (originally written by June's sister Anita as "Love's Ring of Fire") to have added mariachi-styled trumpets in the background. He said that if Anita's version didn't catch on he would record his own ideas for the song. He did and it was a big hit. Coincidence? One has to wonder with a title like "Ring of Fire!"
