I have wasted thousands of dollars on older R&B because of T-Bone getting me hooked on 30s and 40s blues

That reminds me of a long term quest. On All Songs Considered a year or so ago, they spotlighted an artist who had been exiled from Isreal for a period, and had recently returned. He played Ethiopian Sephardic Shepherd's Hymns, and it was some terribly moving stuff. The Ethiopian portions of the Gladiator score contains shades of it. I never could recall his name, and the stuff of the same genre wasn't quite the same.

I had a really weird coincidence around that song a little while back. I was in the record store, and that song was playing in the background. I was bobbing my head to it and wishing I had some idea of who had recorded it, and about five minutes later, out of 10,000 CDs in that store, I randomly picked up the They Might Be Giants CD that held that song. Complete coincidence, because I've never listened to They Might Be Giants and I had no idea who recorded the song.

LA Song...was the first Beth Hart song I ever heard. I dug it the first time I heard it. Sadly, she got caught up in heroin and the rock star life style and blew her record deal. A few years ago she put out "Leave the light On" which to this day is one of my favorite CD's. I have heard rumblings that there is a new CD in the make. I will be keeping my ears open in the hopes that this is true. I have not heard of Susan Tedeschi, I'll have to do a search and check her out.

The list would be long, and I'd have to think about it. I'm one of those people that gets chills the first time I put a brand new CD in the deck.

I distinctly remember the first one ever though. It may be one of my most vivid memories from my youth. A neighbor kid told me I had to come in and listen to his new tape. I remember he had a little cassette recorder on his dresser, and when he turned it on I told him it was going to be too loud. Then Back in Black started playing. I was blown away. This was before it was typical radio fare, and I suffered for weeks until my parents finally took me to buy it.

Others that jump to mind right away:
Linger - The Cranberries
Sabotage - Beastie Boys
Mr Wendel - Arrested Development
Forgot about Dre - Dre and Eminem
An instrumental from Last of the Mohicans
Obsession - Frankie J (flame away)

More recently, I just bought the soundtrack to Ray after watching the movie. It just blew my mind. There were about 5 songs that gave me chills the first time I heard them on my CD player. The intro to What I Say still gets me.

I also just had a freind give me a Stevie Wonder CD, and tell me to listen to Sir Duke. Not the first time I had jheard it, but the first in a long time, and I fell in love with it.

I had a really weird coincidence around that song a little while back. I was in the record store, and that song was playing in the background. I was bobbing my head to it and wishing I had some idea of who had recorded it, and about five minutes later, out of 10,000 CDs in that store, I randomly picked up the They Might Be Giants CD that held that song. Complete coincidence, because I've never listened to They Might Be Giants and I had no idea who recorded the song.
If it makes you feel any better, I wouldn't have a clue who they were if it wasn't for a couple of their songs ending up being cartoonized in Tiny Toons, both Istanbul and Particle Man.

There are several songs from several bands that have made me take notice, but New World Man by Rush (when I was 12) is the one that started my madness. The love of that song got me into the entire Rush catalog and then into several other hard rock/progressive/metal bands. From there my taste in music has broadened but Rush is still at the core.

My all time favorite though is "Rainbow in the dark" by Dio.
Probably the best glam metal song ever done.
-Dio's best vocals yet,
-Vinnie Appice drumming had yet to be matched at the time, and even he pushed the boundaries on that track.
- Vivian Campbell. Was fresh from Irelad with a new sound which eventually go back to Britan and form what would soon become the foundation of Def Leppard.
-And last but not least Rudy Sarzo. “Heavy metals hardest working bass player”. I mean every band he was in made it big, then bigger and bigger. Quiot Riot, Dio, White Snake, OZZY

I have so much music on my harddrive that I haven't ever listened to a lot of it. I just gave this a listen and I really like it. I liked the other ones on your list too. I almost put Vertigo on my list but I was afraid people would make fun of me for liking a song from a commercial. Now that I think of it though, That Great Love Sound by the Ravonettes came from a commercial too.
