Are you a fan of Darius Rucker's Wagon Wheel?

  1. Yes, Wagon Wheel is a great song; I'd listen on the radio.

  2. It certainly isn't a bad song; but I'd likely tune to another channel if it came on the radio.

  3. Wagon Wheel is terrible; I'd very quickly be changing the station.

    Got a computer? Heard of the Internet the World Wide Web?

    I like the old Medicine show version. That other one is mostly autotune.

    It's a good song. There's something slick and a little off putting about the rucker version, like too many very highly-paid people working really hard to sound like low-paid people.

    Dylan is kind of a creep but he understands that to be good songs should sound a little f'ed up, like they're still in progress towards something that's not clear.

    yeah gets irritating when heard too often.

    if you don't like it why play it? i don't want to watch a musician playing material they don't like. why not just watch some temps do data entry instead?

    This is #1 on my list of "Songs for People Who Clap on the 1 and 3".

    I hate this song with an intensity I find disconcerting and a little embarrassing. I can't stop myself from making a face when I see it in a set list - it's an involuntary reaction. If some of you are out there making people happy with it, more power to you.

    If you detest contemporary hardcore hip hop and ever wondered what the average hip hop fan really hates ?

    It could be pretty close to Wagon Wheel.

    Then again, maybe not ...

    Is “Wagon Wheel” the “Piano Man” of country ?

    It’s a good song. I just have a hard time taking that Hootie guy seriously as a country guy. Don’t know why. He’s got a good voice and it’s not like I’m against someone crossing over. Who knows.

    I did look it up a few months ago after hearing about it a million times on here. I have absolutely no recollection how it goes.

    Cheers,
    Geoff

    It's the "Brown Eyed Girl", "Mustang Sally" and "Freebird" all rolled into one.

    Sing us a song, like a wagon wheel
    Sing us a song tonight
    Well, we're all in the mood for the wind and the rain
    And you've got us feelin' alright

    Is he any harder to take than Aaron Lewis singing country?

    No. Not at all.
    Here’s the thing. Maybe Aaron always was a country fan as he claims. But to actually put out a song criticizing people for not being authentically country when you did a song with Fred durst is inexcusable.

    I think Aaron Lewis is a dollar chasing fake. There I said it. That’s the most negative comment I’ve ever made on this forum. And I apologize to those whom I’ve offended with this statement

    This stuff writes itself!

    It's a pretty good crowd for Roanoke
    And the manager gives me a nice long toke
    'Cause he knows that it's me they've been comin' to see
    To forget about life for a while
    And the piano, it sounds like the Cumberland gap
    And the microphone smells like Johnson City, Tennessee
    And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
    And say, "Man, if I die in Raleigh..."

    "Piano Man" and "Brown Eyed Girl" never get old to me. Go figure.
    What is this? Why is this? This does not belong in the pure realm of TDPRI. But, do you know what does?


    As once a parent of small children, these cause a similar reaction to Wagon Wheel and other, watered down 90s-and-beyond "country" songs. Scratch that: really any mainstream music after select 80s songs.
