Not to quibble, but "Love Hurts" no more belongs to the Everly Brothers than it does to Nazareth. It was recorded by a bunch of folks, but written by one of country music's greatest songwriters, Boudleaux Bryant.

It's not that big a deal. In fact I only corrected you because it's you; I so rarely get the chance. I'm just glad you're enjoying that burned CD!
