Trouble...
Trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble
Trouble been doggin' my soul since the day I was born
Worry...
Worry, worry, worry, worry
Worry just will not seem to leave my mind alone
We'll I've been...
saved by a woman
I've been...
saved by a woman
I've been...
saved by a woman
She won't let me go
She won't let me go now
She won't let me go
She won't let me go now

Trouble...
Oh, trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble
Feels like every time I get back on my feet
she come around and knock me down again
Worry...
Oh, worry, worry, worry, worry
Sometimes I swear it feels like this worry is my only friend
We'll I've been saved...
by a woman
I've been saved...
by a woman
I've been saved...
by a woman
She won't let me go
She won't let me go now
She won't let me go
She won't let me go now

Oh..., Ahhhh....
Ohhhh
She good to me now
She gave me love and affection
She good tell me now
She gave me love and affection
I Said I love her
Yes I love her
I said I love her
I said I love...
She good to me now
She's good to me
She's good to me

not my favorite Ray Montagne song

I liked him better when he recorded under the name Tracy Chapman.

Actually Ray LaMontagne is pretty good. I've seen him perform live twice.
 
Too funny. More like if Tracy Chapman and Freddy Mercury had a kid and named him Ray.
Son Volt to Ray LaMontagne through the Stones...this is a fabulous set playing here at midnight on Left Coast Time.

i used to like Ray ... then he canceled the show i had tickets for last week so he could play SNL last saturday. pure sell out move. now the music tastes like sour wine.
 
What in the world does that have to do with his music?  Isn't that an admission that you were not really appreciating his music to begin with?

It's hard to blame an artist for selling a song to a commercial enterprise.  Too many artists get screwed by their labels, and end up in poverty when they should be living at least comfortably on royalties from their work.  If this commercial means that he has the ability to buy a house - or health insurance, good for him.

I thought it was a pretty good use of a tune to 'sell' a product.  The passion and emotion in his voice really convey 'trouble'.  

That said, I also thought it was Tracy C. when I first heard this.   
 
I really like the ad, if you have to make one I'm going to the doggies! And yes Tracy Chapman did come to mind at the beginning.    {#Biggrin}

Just been to youtube to see his vid of this excellent track and this is the latest count 4,142,323 Not surprising as this is a beautiful song and sung by a Maestro ....
This guy must have the same publicist as Katy Perry. He gets played on tv shows, always on the radio.

Let's see....... postpone a show for probably 2-3000 people to make an appearance on US National television?  Tough decision!!
Can't hear this song anymore without visualizing that stoopid Traveller's commercial about the neurotic dog and his stoopid bone...okay, I have a bone to pick. {#Tongue}
It has been ruined by being in a commercial that plays too much.
Aaaahhhhhhhhh... sing it, Ray.  It doesn't get much better than this.  The soul in his voice!  He's painfully awkward in interviews, bless'm.  His music just grabs hold of me.  Thanks, RP!  {#Notworthy}
not my favorite, but i can hear the talent
A true, original talent, I think.

poor baby {#Sad} , tell me you would not have done the same had the situations been reversed? the song btw, is a solid 5.
i was just listening to this song on my way back to work from lunch..  good song so i don't mind the double take.

Not weird.  That's what I thought as well.

Too. Much. Ray.
 
No. Such. Thing.


Bill, how do I make an 11 ranking?
Too. Much. Ray.
His new album came out today (13th Oct) Apart from maybe 3 tracks it's a pretty solid album, I've just uploaded winter birds to the LRC, My favourite song on the album. This song will always be a favourite of his only because the first time i heard it it was live on tv and THAT voice made me stop everything and listen. One of the best voices in music today.

 I always look when I hear him to see who it is, then a moment later, forget. But now the memories have accumulated and I just might have to become his fan on Facebook.

This song just makes me happy. {#Yes}
Ahhhhh, my Monday morning theme song. The trouble/worry part

I almost hear the spirit of Freddy Mercury bubbling up through Ray in those high note stretches. {#Angel}
Great tune.

1:17 am - Ray LaMontagne - Trouble 1:14 am - Astor Piazzolla - Ausencias 1:11 am - Pat Metheny Group - Above The Treetops 1:07 am - Azure Ray - Look To Me 1:03 am - Tom McRae - Keep Your Picture Clear 1:00 = 9:00 where I am. What an outstanding play list to start the working day. I probably won't cuss anyone for ... hours.
Looks like that devil can really cut a rug.
I guess I need to give Ray another chance. I saw him live at the Austin City Limits music festival in 2006, and he didn't sound like he sounds in his recordings. Our one friend (who didn't go to the festival that year) was/is infatuated with him, and told us we must see his performance. We were less than impressed at the time, and I wrote him off. But now I've liked everything of his that I've heard here on RP, so I guess I should give him another chance! Yay RP for helping me see the light!
What I like about Ray is that he stands out from the crowd. I saw an interview with him recently where he talked about how hard it is to maintain creative integrity when working under a major label. Thank goodness he's sticking to his guns!
The best damn thing I've heard no RP all day!
Yet another great song from a tremendous talent! :clap: :clap: :sunny:
I've lately been mainlineing Rescue Me on DVD and Ray is often featured on the soundtrack, so now I have pictures of Denis Leary in my head when I hear him. It may take a while to get over that.
Like this one :drunk: :drunk:
Such phrasing. Ray audited a few classes at the Ben Harper school.

omg, what a nice thing to say- and I have to agree!

One of the joys of having discovered RP is being able to once again add quality music to my collection. One of the downsides to having discovered RP is once again spending too much money on buying music. :wink: Seriously, Ray LaMontagne is good times. Thanks to RP for allowing me to hear about him.

You could comment on his non-husky, immature voice.

ME TOO!. I recognize him now and always like what I hear. I also heard a piece on him on NPR.

Oh, thank you thank you Bill & Rebecca. Ray is one of those so amazingly full of soul and life when he performs. Get this album if you don't have it already!
I like...

What a beautiful, beautiful song.
THANK YOU!!!!!!!!
First comment?? 10++++, the scale isn't close to high enough. OUTSTANDING album, start to finish...can't get enough of it.
GIMME TAYLOR HICKS!!!!!
