It's like that Mariah Carey Christmas song; I thought that was a cover of something from the 50s... it's just so pop-perfect it feels like I've known it forever... and maybe we did: Bob Dylan wrote the chorus in the 70s. Did it get used somewhere else in another song? I dunno.

Nope. Also; where's the fiddle player?
 
I've never heard it before either. I only play music I want to hear and that one doesn't come up in any rotation the stations I listen to play. Now after listening to about 20 seconds or so I too am a member of the No Wagon Wheel club. {#Stop}

As you could imagine, it's a popular song in Appalachia and particularly around Raleigh.  I don't think I'd heard it until I moved to NC.  I remember playing an open mic night years ago at a local bar and while people were signing in the guy running it was explaining about how many songs and how long people could play and then added: "Oh, and no fucking 'Wagon Wheel'".  First time I had heard that phrase.


I’ve sat around many a campfire with musicians hanging out. Inevitably, someone will kick into “Wagon Wheel.” Everybody knows how to sing it, or learns quickly, plus it is easy an easy song for harmonizing. I don’t recall hearing it on the radio though. Let’s see if RP will put it on the rotation

Yeah, it's ok.  If I never heard it again that would be ok, too.

25 times a week and there would be a problem.

I mean the bona fides of that band are hard to beat. Gillian Welch and David Rawlings in that video. I don't believe I've ever called it up before so that was interesting. I know she's played with them tho.

Have you left the house? Because I'd say 1 out of 3 cover bands I've seen in the last 15 years or so have done it.

I think I voiced a complaint here but maybe FB just in the last few weeks that a guy was doing a solo set and literally every song started off sounding like Wagon Wheel but with a different chorus. I kept thinking "ah, this is it" and nope.

Edit:  I vaguely remembered bitching on Facebook about the phenomenon some time ago. I just checked - I voiced my complaint in July of 2011. Yeah, it's been out of control for a long time.

The person closest to the audio system controls the Spotify. It used to be a 20-year-old from Denver who had decent taste and had a pretty broad playlist set up. The guy there now is from here and ergo I hear Wagon Wheel approximately 25 times per week.
