How long was I alseep?
When did we plan to meet?
Have you been waiting long for me?
When did the sky turn black?
Do you still want me back?
I'll pick it all up piece by piece.

And the wheel goes round and round.
And the flame in our souls will never burn out.
And the wheel, and the wheel goes round.

I am a river with a voice.
I came into your life by choice.
And none can judge just how that feels.
You are a messenger from God.
You are the angel I forgot.
And who's to say that it isn't real?

And the wheel goes round and round.
And the flame in our souls will never burn out.
And the wheel, and the wheel goes round.

I'm not looking for the answers.
Oh, darling don't you see
That just to know the question
Is good enough for me.

Take up the hearts you came to heal.
Put down your dagger and your shield.
You need fear nothing now from me.
I see the essence of the man.
I stand before you as a friend.
The truth moves through us even when we sleep.

And the wheel goes round and round.
And the flame in our souls will never burn out.
And the wheel, and the wheel goes round.

My coworker will not stop complaining about the skewed rating system of the songs. He would much prefer you use a weighted mean or a median score. According to him, if you took a more evenly distributed score across each vote this song would rank much higher. Can someone please 1) change the rating system to more accurately account for the vote distribution OR 2) tell my coworker to lighten up and stop being so pedantic all the time. At this point, either one would work...

Thanks Bill {#Bananajam}
 
You get to listen to RP at work? Tell your co-worker to get back to work before they get canned.

It appears the scoring is a properly weighted score: (sum of (score * vote_count)) / total_votes.  Exactly how it should be. Tell your friend to quit complaining.
 

Oh, but what about mean, standard deviation, 95% percentile, etc?? RP (for most) is a happy place, statistics class (for most) is NOT a happy place. cam97mason please tell your coworker to leave us to our happy place.

Boring repetitive tune. Rhythm section is  machine. And appeals to God really irk me
Talented family, but not my kind of singer.  Too pop.
nice, thanks Bill,...but more Lucinda would be even better{#Wink}

Rosanne Cash at Ottawa Bluesfest 2006 by Andrew Carver

9:45 pm - Rosanne Cash - The Wheel 9:41 pm - King Crimson - Eyes Wide Open Really great song sequencing based on the guitar work in each track. Never, ever woulda connected these two tracks myself. Inspired!
Sucko-barfo is the perfect comment for this song. This is crappy saccharine suburban folk country diluted and distilled for mindless soccer moms driving their minivans! And I am a mom who drives a minivan but mindless I AM NOT!
Promising... Then it surpasses the promise - A 10
Promising start, then a letdown... a 5.
Wow, this is SO much better than that car commercial! :roll:

Yeah, Johnny Cash was just a talentless, voiceless, soulless old man with no redeeming musical abilities. RIP Johnny! :beat:
:clap: I really like it :clap:
:frustrated: an emoticon is worth 100 words...

Her and a buttload of black tar heroin - never ceases to amaze me how stupid junkies can be.

It sounds 100% like Jann Arden....
Anybody picking up on Cowboy Junkies in there?

Agreed...I've owned "The Wheel" since the CD came out back in 1993 or so and that tire commerical just makes me cringe. :P That "circular" guitar riff (that's how it's credited in the liner notes!) that Steuart Smith does here is incredible.
Sounds like he's been listening to the Freddy Jones Band 8).
Why isn't she a bigger star? Her "Rules of Travel" CD that came out last year is outstanding!!! No justice in tehmusic world...
She reminds me of Mary Chapin Carpenter. Really nice song!
Roseanne Cash killed Howie Epstein!!!
Actually, no. Roseanne's mother is not the late June Carter Cash. Roseanne Cash is the daughter of Johnny Cash and his first wife, Vivian Liberto. Her parents separated when she was very young. She grew up with her mother in California. Patrick wrote:

I never knew that the tire version was just a crappy cover of this tune until I just heard Roseanne Cash's original a moment ago. I thought some underpaid jingle guy wrote it for BS. I like this original 8)

first song that i ever heard her do - and i\'ve been a fan ever since :clap:
Nothing short of lovely. Seriously masterful.
Thanks for the Roseanne! Saw her at the Birchmere perform most of this excellent album live. Steuart Smith (guitar)is amazing!

excellent selection from a great cd. play more anytime. thanks!
Any relation to Johnny?
I\'ve been a fan since her early days. Glad she\'s included in the mix.
Nice melody, sometimes haunting, but not excessively so. Percussion really kicks. Nice instrumental blend all around.
:hurl: <-- we need that one
