What’s your current song addiction?

Today Tone Taxi is on Boylan drive right around TAC headquarters. As we drive around I want to tell you about my current song addiction.

The ULTIMATE Guitar Practice Routine

Just show up every day, and I'll tell you what to play!

We’ve been abusing this song for days on end now. Sometimes looping it continuously, singing it a cappella, Googling Adele incessantly, giving each other sh*t for not appreciating the fourth consecutive listen through…you get the idea.

Well, I want to know what your song obsession is. Livin La Vida Loca? Low Rider? I Kissed a Girl?

Whatever it is, leave a comment with the story below!

    This is awesome!!! Such great stuff on here!!! Make sure to keep ’em coming, I have already spent about an hour or so listening to a good chunk of these tunes 🙂

    Right now I can’t get Neil Young’s Harvest Moon out of my head. I guess I will have to learn it to get it out of my had and move onto something else. LOL

  3. Pat Ryde

    The duet from the Bizet’s opera ,the Pearl Fishers, it haunts me with the beauty of the voices

  4. Red Morris

    This is great! A seemingly endless supply of new addictive music!
    One of many is Souvenirs by John Prine played with the late, Great Steve Goodman. John says at his shows that “Stevie played the hard parts so it sounded like I was playing them”
    broken hearts and dirty windows,
    make life difficult to see.
    thats why last night
    and this morning,
    always look the same to me.

    Can’t stop listening to and trying to play Eva Cassidy’s version of Kathy’s Song originally by Paul Simon. Wonderful picking and lyrics based on Paul S’s lost love in the UK and sung by lost songbird. Here’s Kathy’s Song YouTube by Eva … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ofYzG66mbE&list=PLONLmE9k7n1P1aTq40uNB7e_bx06zxLKO&index=15

    BTW, as a new TAC guy learning to play, TAC is an impressive guitar community in many ways. So many great suggestions and conversations. Thanks TAC!

    I’ve gone all Steely Dan. So today I seem to be playing “Do it again” over and over and over.

  7. Reid

    “There Was a Time” by Mandolin Orange. It’s on their “This Side of Jordan” album. It’s been looping in my head for the past 3 months. Emily Frantz’s voice is so hauntinly beautiful, that it has this 44 yr old man singing along in falsetto. Absolute ear candy.

    Damian Jurado’s “Cloudy Shoes.” One beautiful 3-chord song.

    I can’t stop playing/singing “Nearly forgot my Broken Heart” by Chris Cornell. I also love Worried Moon from the same album. I like his playing because:

    a. I can play what he plays unlike some artists where it’s like – okay – give me a break.
    b. I love that dudes voice! Quite possibly one of the best Rock N Roll Voices of all time.

    The lyrics are a bit edgy but introspective. I dunno. Just does it for me.

    Glad to be back Y’all..

    Come on people and listen to Happiness is Free by Wizz Jones just a wonderful artist that takes some of us back to the days of our youth when we thought” what is so funny about love peace and understanding”

    Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again. This Dylan song has been playing in my head since I first heard it in 1966.

  16. Remy

    I am totally addicted to Mark Knopfler’s acoustic versions of some of his songs.
    For instance Heart of Oak from the Tracker album.
    Version of Done with Bonaparte he plays in this interview:
    It’s just magic, love his technique and singing.

    Last Tuesday night I got to see Jeffery Foucault and Caitlin Canty and a small bar in the middle of nowhere. There were only 50 tickets sold. It was jam packed when we got there, so I sat on the floor in front of Jeffery’s monitor (no stage). It was one of the greatest most intimate shows I have ever seen. They did this song of the new CD “I Love You (And You Are a Fool). I have not been able to stop listening to it all week. At least 10 times a day.

    Lately, It’s been this Video of Tom Petty, Steve Winwood, Jeff Lynne, George Harrison’s son, doing “While my Guitar Gently Weeps.” With Prince overachieving like a Mofo on a near perfect guitar solo.

    And then there is the thirty year celebration of the Dylan’s music and the song “My back Pages” With Roger McGuinn, Tom Petty, Neil Young, Eric Clapton & George Harrison and of course Bob Dylan taking their turns with the lyrics:

    “Good and Bad I defined these terms,
    Quite clear, no doubt somehow,
    Ah, but I was so much older then,
    I’m younger, than that now….”

    I’m 61 now and the older I get the less I know…….

      holy McF**k wasn’t that a thing of beauty, eh?

  29. tpaine

    The Beatles live in my head….current song is What You’re Doing…..

  30. Dennis Erickson

    Beck’s “Heart Is A Drum” is this addictive, ethereal little song that caught me on the freeway about a month ago and won’t go away. Nice harmonies, simple music, some cool production tricks, easy to dance to while driving and doesn’t sound better on drugs. The test of a good song.

  31. Robert Palty

    End Of The Line, Traveling Wilbury’s. George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and Bob Dylan. It doesn’t get any better than that.

  32. Jeff Fisher

    The song that I have played on repeat for days in the recent period is Tina Malia’s “Shores of Avalon.” I haven’t had an experience like that for years. Deep love.

  33. Sandy

    Song addiction . . . “I’ve Got This Friend,” by the Civil Wars (Barton Hollow album). Sweet and lovely, over and over again…

  34. Dave McConnell

    This particular version of “From a Window Seat,” by Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes. A shout out to the other Dawes recommendation!

  35. Robert Palty

    End of the Line by the Travelling Wilbury’s. Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison. Doesn’t get any better than that.

  36. Rick Wine

    I got to see Don Stiffe in Clifden, Ireland in late Aug. 2015; he is a fine, instinctive guitarist, and an excellent, wonderful vocalist – winner of Ireland’s version of “The Voice”, I believe. He played this song at the Vaughn’s pub, this is one of the many pieces he performed. Written by Richard Thompson. It is playing over and over in my head! Beautiful.

  37. Tony

    Bruce Cockburn, Strange Waters. Haunting, poetic, passionate.

    “Tennessee Whiskey” by Chris Spapleton, or for that matter, anything by
    Chris Stapleton ! This guy has a fantastic voice .

  41. Paul P

    Michigan by The Milk Carton Kids. The story: I first heard of these two guys in Acoustic Guitar magazine, looked them up and watched every video I could find. Kenneth plays a ’52 Martin O-15 which intrigued me, because I have a ’49. Then when I saw what he could do with it, he blew me away. Their songwriting and story-telling is great.

  42. Brad C.

    It’s an oldie, but I’ve been stuck on Willin’ by Little Feat. I love discovering bands like Little Feat, that I am way too young to have seen or heard when they were around, doing their thing. It is especially sweet when the radio hasn’t played them to death.

  43. Jay Silverberg

    I usually have entire albums in my head. Anything and everything on Abbey Road is in my head 24/7. Strangely, the song “Runaway Train” by Soul Asylum has a corner in my head now.

    1. Brad C.

      I remember when that song was popular, and it literally seemed like the radio stations played it like every third song. Those syndicated stations should be charged with song murder!

    2. david

      Boy,… you’re going to carry that weight…carry that weight a long time…..

  44. Axel

    Well, funny. Hello is probably actually also my most addicted song. But if I look back over lets say 12 months than its the Ed Sheeran Song One – not only because of the wonderful text but it is a really impressive song for every guitar player. Nearly no instrument but a guitar, and you don´t miss any.

    I have given this much thought, and I would have to say Corine Bailey Rea’s Put Your Records on is currently in this mode. ‘Tis a lovely tune, sung by a lovely singer with a lovely voice. Every few months, the song will come on, and I will have to play until my wife and kids are entirely sick of it. He debut album is a great soul/motown infused pop album, so I guess it would not just be that song, although it is awesome, it may be the whole kit and caboodle.

    I am enthralled with one of the acoustic albums you recommended, Skip, Hop & Wobble. Those 3 musicians are fantastic and the music written by Russ Barenberg , et al is addicting to me. Acoustic guitar is new to me having listened to classical music for so long. Handel’s Water Music or Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, “Primavera” would have been my abused music prior to my new exposure to acoustic folk instruments like the dobro. “Hello ” by Adele is, for me, too painful. Doesn’t she sound like she’s in agony? It hurts me just to hear her sing it. But thanks for the thought provoking question.

    Wow! I’ve had a marathon scrolling workout just getting to the comment box! Love this tribe!!! It it a happy coincidence that I have had a real obsession for the past few weeks with the Led Zeppelin 2004 reissue of the album, “No quarter.” It started with the song, “Gallows Pole (live version, acoustic).” That song showcases the power of rhythm and a few chords! My husband clued me into the possibility that Page is playing a 12-string, which was news to me! I listen to the whole album, repeatedly, while doing dishes. An entire acoustic guitar education emerges from this spectacular, acoustic album. The whole album is a genius exploration of a narrow rage of notes (or at least that is how I hear it.) I feel as if I will never tire of this soulful masterwork. I am still workin on playing along, in search of an approximation on my guitar. That is pure fun, jamming along to the soundtrack, way off tune most every note, but feeling it all in-step with its greatness!

      Here is a link to a live mini-concert, with that favorite son, “Gallows Pole” played first (the version on the 2004 album is more intense, imho, and I prefer that one, but you really get the whole album live in this video!):
      If the link isn’t working, it’s the 1994 Jools BBC show, on YouTube

Jellyroll Blues on that one and, in fact, the entire DVD! I usually put the DVD into the computer at the start of the day and keep it going all day.

    Also listen incessantly to Tommy Emmanuel, but especially Tommy Emmanuel, John Jorgenson, Pedro Javier González – “Sultans of swing”

    Addictions … hmmm I have many and they change frequently.

    Today’s song of choice is “Sweet Home Alabama”, played loud and proud.

  53. John Dixon

    +1 for CSN, “See The Changes”. But currently it is from Don Henley’s new release ‘Cass County’, “That Old Flame”, duet with Don and Martina McBride. Picked up the CD while wandering around a BB while my wife was shopping. The song caught me with its kind of moderate driving rhythm and then a week later Henley was on Austin City Limits (which I have recorded and played back several times for friends) and I was hooked. Second song I always go back to is Dire Straights, “Sailing To Philadelphia”, duet with Knopfler and James Taylor. Same kind of slow driving rhythm pushing the song forward, plus it recounts the story of my ‘Line’.

    My earworm is (and has been for a while) Chill in the Air by Amos Lee. Not sure why I’m required to hear this as often as I am but I just have to. Big fat acoustic sound. Despite REPEATED listenings I’m unclear exactly what happens in this song. Some sort of crime? (Don’t seem right that it’s me that’s spending nights in jail. . .) That mystery may be part of why I like it. That and killer lines like this one:If you feel a chill in the air, it’s my spirit hanging somewhere. Spooky and perfect.

    Too bad there isn’t an extended version of the video, seems like Joel is showing more Joie de vivre but maybe Tony is just a bit shy or just getting started. Would have been a wonderful full length version to watch over and over…

    Before I listened to Jeff’s “Save It for a Rainy Day” by The Jayhawks yesterday, I made a playlist of songs from Utube – Live from Zone C by Rosanne Cash, just voice and guitar so Sea of Heartbreak, 7 Year Ache and John Stewart’s Runaway Train plus Miss the Mississippi are getting me singing and moving.

    Great question, now maybe I can listen to something else by checking out everyone’s songs.

    Funny you mentioned Blue Sky in today’s practice plan. I listen to that song religiously – I have to listen to it at least a few times a week. The Blue Sky and Little Martha tandem on Eat a Peach is one of my favorite pairings of songs ever.

    But I’ve been addicted to some Paul Simon stuff lately. “Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes” has been on repeat for a while, just can’t get it out of my head. The groove in that song fantastic! Oh, and Blue May with Tony P on banjo is a pretty sweet little jam.

    My current song obsession is one that I’ve had on the back burner for quite some time- Here Comes The Sun, by The Beatles. Maybe it’s time to stir it up and put on the front burner…

    My other obsession is The Eagle and The Hawk, by John Denver- Not really a fingerpicking song, but I’ve always loved to get in the car and crank the volume all the way up until the windows shake on this one- it is so majestic! Like it lets your soul get out and soar on the high winds!

    I’ve been trying to get Blackberry Blossom to the point where I can actually present it in The Stage, so I hear and play it a lot right now.
    To follow up with Maggie’s comment, the song stuck in my head COULD have been “I know I promised ya darlin’, but I got the TACland Blues and can’t shake ’em” song.

  92. Fred G

    Current favorite is “Misery and Gin” by the Hag….

  93. Scott Wilson

    ‘Wait So Long’ by Trampled By Turtles – the pace is awesome.

    Lately it’s been “Save It for a Rainy Day” by The Jayhawks. I just can’t help putting it on repeat and strumming/singing along.

    I’m a mess by Ed Sheeran. I play it every chance I get. Also playing Topiary on repeat. Thanks for the albums, Tony.

    Times like these.
    Dave Grohl’s acoustic version.
    It’s wicked!

    John Moreland – Hearts too heavy. Pretty damn good. I’m going to post a recording of it one I get my new recording system working.

    Nice choreography, and I was pretty sure Joel and Levi where NOT going to get away with not doing their song. Busted by Maggie!

    So a song I’ve been listening to a lot is “Trouble No More” — the Allman Brothers version. I’m trying to internalize the riffs. I throw in “You Gotta Move” by Mississippi Fred McDowell whenever I need a break from the first one.

  104. Evan

    I’ve had “Elevator Operator” by Courtney Barnett stuck in my head for about a week now… Bouncy bass line, quirky/cynical lyrics, and good storytelling.

    Saw her a little while ago on CBS Saturday Morning playing a few songs and I was hooked. If you haven’t heard her yet, I’d recommend looking her up!

    I have two songs I’ve been playing a lot lately.

    The way things are today and with all the political unrest, right now the song I’m burning is “Old Man” by Neil Young. I listen to it and play it all the time.

    The other one is “Hole Hearted” by Extreme. I play it on a 12 String and listen to it all the time as well. Not sure why. Maybe that Jingly sound of the 12 string just resonates with me.

      “Whole Hearted”!!!!! What a great Nuno Jam!!! I used to love playing that one. IT’s a really fun tune to pick. I can never find anyone that wants to sing harmonies with me though. So I quit playing it.

      Thanks for the flashback Jose!

        I also have to comment that one – Nuno is unique, both in style and in sound! Hole Hearted has also been one of those technique excercises that I keep returning to. Actually, Extreme was a very underestimated band – funky metal with a lot more to offer than More Than Words. Kudos to José for that choice!

    Joe Bonamassa. ‘Tea for One.’ Blues man extroardinaire. He covered Led Zeppelin’s tune but it’s awesome!! We want to learn more blues like the 12 barre you laid on us last week!!

    I am trying to get together a jam worthy version of Big Mon. I think a first A and B section of Big Mon would make a great song lesson.

    Current ear worm Eric Bibb Ain’t no cane on the Brazos, both twelve string and six string versions.

    Current Earworm = “Stay a Little Longer” by Brothers Osborne. The long version (5 minutes +) has the extended instrumental ending that makes me drool!
    P.S. – I second Maggie on “The Unfulfilled Promise” by Joel and Levi!!

    My song that i’m into right now is a song by Crosby, Still and Nash called ” See The Changes “. The melody, harmony and the guitar picking is just awsome.
    It would make a nice song addition to the song list.

    Right now it is Traveller by Chris Stapleton. Don’t know were this guy has been but his music is it for me right now!

      I’ll tell you one place he’s been Lou. Go find the first 2 albums by The Steeldrivers (“Steeldrivers” and “Reckless”). It’s more on the lines of Bluegrass than country, but it’s still phenomenal songwriting and his vocals are crazy-good! Some gems to look for:
      “If It Hadn’t Been For Love”
      “Midnight Train to Memphis”
      “Sticks That Made Thunder”
      “Where Rainbows Never Die”
      “Can You Run”
      I could keep going, but you’ll find the rest on your own. Chris left the band after the second album and was replaced with another singe/songwriter (can’t think of his name off hand). Still a good group, but just not the same power as when Chris was singing.

      Outstanding Group! I can’t say enough about them. Great musicians all around and wonderful story-telling!!!

    hahaha!! I love the dramatic moves… you guys are feelin’ it.
    The song I would be addicted to is the one that Joel and Levi promised for Halloween but never delivered.
