Have you ever heard a song and thought: oh my God, everyone I know needs to hear it?

    So I heard this song first about 12.5 years ago and all I could think is: Where has this dude been my whole life? and, I need to introduce him to other people.





    -------------------------------------

    In that spirit, what other songs/artists have you heard that you think others should hear?

    Fabulous song.

    The "Jagged Little Pill" record - said every 20-something girl in the US.

    I have thought that about bands and songs. Growing up on pop punk in the 80s I thought for sure everyone would love bands like green day and goo goo dolls as much as I did if only they'd play them on the radio. Turns out I was right.

    I had a couple recently, Protection by Lucinda Williams, and Gimme Something Good by Ryan Adams. Circulated both to my band mates extolling them as the best songs I had ever heard, just think of what our keyboard player/backup singers/lead vocalist could do with them. Not word one from anyone, about either one. Pfft.

    I remember seeing Martin Sexton circa 2000 when I lived in Boston.

    At the time there was a piece about how he toured on his own with an SUV and a trailer and was making $200k a year.

    Huge talent.

    Wow--small world. He's playing about an hour from here on Tuesday!

    In my teens, whenever I heard something that blew me away, I thought everyone who shared my general tastes and interests in music would be similarly moved. They often were but I was genuinely surprised when they weren't. Now I'm a bit surprised at my youthful surprise. But I still love introducing friends and family to music. Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of examples.

    I never think that, music is too personal, I would never assume anyone would relate to what I like.

    What a great topic! For a non-american like me this is great to learn more about american music.

    Anyway, which guitar this guy's using? It sounds HUGE!

    I worked on the 3rd season of the Showtime series Brotherhood. "Can't Stop Thinking 'Bout You" by Martin Sexton was used in one of the later episodes. I've been a fan ever since.

    Whenever I find a new song, or at least new to me, that I think certain friends will like I send them the YT link. "10,000 Emerald Pools" by Børns, "Drop The Game" and "Gold" by Chet Faker and "Her Favorite Song" by Mayer Hawthorne are the most recent.

    The first time I heard "The Way It Is" by Bruce Hornsby, in the '80s, I was filling my car up with gas. I thought, "Wow - who the f- is this????"

    I wanted to run out and tell all my friends to try and find that tune. It was so different than anything else being played.
