I don’t think we’ve put a Josh Abbott Band song on CML in a while. And that’s too bad because I know this band has been working hard the last several years. They’ve put some songs on the mainstream charts too and it’s cool to see them getting some recognition. They have a cool style.
This song has been climbing the Texas Chart for a while. It’s off their latest album. It’s actually in the 40s right now on the mainstream chart so we’ll see how it does here.
Amnesia – Josh Abbott Band
There’s been a little theme this week. I guess it’s the sad song theme, but we all know that we need sad country songs. We all go through difficult times, but the thing about times, both good and bad, is that they don’t last.
However, that doesn’t make things much easier while we’re struggling with something.
In this case, the situation is a guy working to get over a girl. That’s what it seems like. No matter what he’s doing she’s still on his mind and he can’t get over it at all. There is nothing he can do and he just wishes he would lose that memory and even all his memories so he could get over the pain.
I don’t know why, but this song reminds me of an episode of That ’70s Show when Eric wishes he would lose the memory of being with Donna.
Anyway, I like this song. Cool melody and definitely an emotion people can relate to.
