    I love “You Don’t Even Know Who I Am”, because it’s perfectly country and cleverly written. The little twist in the second verse caught me by complete surprise the first time I heard it, and it’s currently the most played song of hers in my iTunes.

  2. Michael September 15, 2009 at 12:05 am

    I’m looking forward to this CD to hear Patty’s take on Busted and her reinterpretation of her own “Blue Memories.” My favorite Patty song is probably “Nothin’ But the Wheel”.

    • Steve from Boston September 15, 2009 at 3:39 am

      Great choice Michael, I’ve like to say that Patty’s Nothing but the Wheel is the perfect Country song by the perfect Country singer.

      • Michael September 15, 2009 at 11:07 am

        Yeah, I’m not sure why that one stikes such a cord with me but it does. I never fully appreciated it when it was first released (and neither did radio, I think it peaked somewhere around #20) but I think it’s the finest example of her voice conveying pure, aching, lonesome heartbreak.

    • Steve from Boston September 15, 2009 at 1:54 pm

      I agree Michael, “Wheel” is just a pure, no-frills Country song, the perfect vehicle for the purest, most expressive of Country voices.

  3. dale schmucker September 15, 2009 at 1:29 am

    the lonely side of love!!!

  4. Steve from Boston September 15, 2009 at 3:36 am

    “Big Chance”, it has an iconic sound, and I love everything about it. The humor and clever lyric’s:

    The melody is perfect,, the instumentation rich and virtuosic…and it was penned by Patty and Emory. The perfect Bluegrass song by the perfect Bluegrass singer (and her husband) 😉

  5. Lanibug September 15, 2009 at 10:47 am

    Probably would have to be the classic – “How Can I Help You Say Goodbye”

  7. Doug September 15, 2009 at 12:25 pm

    Wow! What a hard choice. I’d have to say “You Don’t Even Know Who I Am.” However, “How Can I Help You Say Goodbye,” is a phenomenal song as well. Just hard to listen to sometimes – very emotional

  8. Robert Loy September 15, 2009 at 1:07 pm

    I love all of Patty’s songs but if I had to pick one, I’d go with “That Kind of Girl.”

  9. Jeff H September 15, 2009 at 2:12 pm

    The Grandpa That I know…..

    It’s straight forward truth..and anyone can relate..the grandpa in the coffin isnt the same guy in any memory!

  10. Joseph September 15, 2009 at 2:12 pm

    My favorite Loveless songs are “Here I Am” and “My Heart Will Never Break This Way Again”

  11. Mike K September 15, 2009 at 2:30 pm

    Here I am – I loved it the first time I heard and it’s been my favorite ever since. I love it when she breaks in with “I got over…”

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  12. Chad September 15, 2009 at 2:52 pm

    WOW…what a hard question. There are so many that I love love love. Even though I like some of her uptempo stuff, I prefer the aching in her voice. The first song to come to mine was “On Your Way Home” but there are really too many to pick from.

  13. plain_jo September 15, 2009 at 2:58 pm

    A Thousand Times A Day – got me through many a day. It has a very strong message and yet doesn’t scream you ear off. I also really like Out of Control Raging Fire, and My Kind of Woman/ My Kind of Man.

  14. Jordan Stacey September 15, 2009 at 3:34 pm

    “On Your Way Home” is one of my favorites. Its gotta be one of her finest songs shes recorded.

  15. MK September 15, 2009 at 4:21 pm

    My favorite Patty song is “Handful of Dust.” I am so glad she decided to revisit it for the new project! Ask me this tomorrow and you’re likely to get a different answer; she simply has too many wonderful songs!

  16. Emmy September 15, 2009 at 4:22 pm

    I’d have to go with You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive. I know its been done by others, but I think Patty’s version is the perfect combination of elements. I like her more radio friendly country stuff as well (not that they are friendly to her anymore, what a bummer).

  17. J.R. Journey September 15, 2009 at 6:43 pm

    I will add another vote for ‘Here I Am’.

  18. ky24941 September 15, 2009 at 6:55 pm

    My favorite Patty Loveless would have to be “High On Love” from the Long Stretch of Lonesome album

  19. Rick September 15, 2009 at 8:23 pm

    I’d have to say I favor Patty’s duet with Jon Randall on “Are You Teasing Me” from the “Livin’ Lovin, Losin” Louvin Brothers tribute album. Just a fantastic song sung to perfection by two of the best in the business. Still gives me goosebumps every time I listen, and at this point that’s been a lot of spins!

  20. Razor X September 15, 2009 at 8:52 pm

    I agree that it’s hard to choose just one, but I think I’d have to go with “When The Fallen Angels Fly”.

  21. Jo September 15, 2009 at 10:18 pm

    I think my favorite Patty Loveless song is ‘Nothin’ But The Wheel’. One of the most heartbreaking songs that Patty has ever recorded.

  22. SD September 16, 2009 at 8:25 am

    Ugh, this is so hard! I’d have to say “Here I Am” and “On Your Way Home”. Here I Am because you can pretty much feel the heartache, and On Your Way Home because it’s so gorgeous.

  23. Fred Williams September 16, 2009 at 7:37 pm

    “You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive” because it contains all of Patty’s soul and feelings about her home place and the coal mining people of Kentucky. I notice someone else already made that selection, so for a second choice “Little Drummer Boy” -just plain beautiful sounds!

  24. Dale September 17, 2009 at 1:52 am

    I love “Nothing But The Wheel”. It just makes me think about how I have felt SO many times since my dear husband’s passing & how I need to find a new life for myself. I need to give almost everything up in my past, to find a happier future. Get rid of it all, hold on to nothing, but the wheel of my car & drive off into the sunset to someplace new. I LOVE Patty & I also Love Jon Randall! Can’t wait to hear this new cd & know I will LOVE it!

  25. mindy September 17, 2009 at 8:15 am

    i find how can i help you say goodbye very touching thanks

  26. Ray Ingraham September 17, 2009 at 8:29 am

    The song that is most touching to me by Patty Loveless is How Can I Help You Say Goodbye?…I Lost my grandmother last June and and than on Jan.30th my best friend died and 2 days later my step dad who was like my dad died…It has helped so much..

    • Daryl K September 17, 2009 at 9:52 pm

      I also like “How Can I Help You To Say Goodbye”. My Dad suffered a stoke & for some reason, that weekend I was watching CMT when they showed the video for it. He lived for 14 months after that & I always think of him when I hear this song.

  27. Carol September 17, 2009 at 9:14 am

    The Lonely Side of Love because it speaks personally to me.

  28. Gena September 17, 2009 at 12:24 pm

    I am torn. She is one of my most favorite artists and has so many wonderful songs:

    Nothin’ But the Wheel

    You Don’t Even Know Who I Am

    You Don’t Seem to Miss Me

    I know, they are all tear-jerking, heartbreakers, but she makes you feel as if she understands and has been there, too.
    She has a very beautiful voice and has earned her place in Country Music.

  29. Cheryl September 17, 2009 at 12:51 pm

    I’ve been a Patty fan ever since I heard “Don’t Toss Us Away”..that voice stopped me in my tracks…My favorite song is
    “To Have You Back Again”…it was my theme song in the rebuilding process after Katrina..never thought I would see it as a love song to my home…when I moved back in, two years later…that is the first song that was played in my home…and it was great to have it back again…

  30. Erik September 17, 2009 at 2:21 pm

    Such a hard question. Could be Old Soul due to its maturity and Patty’s thought-provoking performance, or it could be “Where I’m Bound” for the sheer beauty of her voice and the lyrics.

  31. Rodney in South Carolina September 17, 2009 at 4:33 pm

    “You Don’t Seem to Miss Me” for that hard hitting country twang that she and Jones resonate with and “You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive” for the sheer heartbreak you feel when she sings “And you spend your life digging coal from the bottom of your grave.” Rips my heart out everytime.

  32. brooke September 17, 2009 at 7:02 pm

    Oh hard hard hard… So many great ones.. “How can I help you to say goodbye” so soulful and was so helpful for me at a hard time…. or “You don’t even know who I am”

  33. Lisa H September 17, 2009 at 7:34 pm

    The Grandpa That I know resonates with me deeply. I love the lyrics above and beyond the beautiful music.

  34. Paul W Dennis September 17, 2009 at 10:58 pm

    “If My Heart Had Windows”, a cover of a Dallas Frazier-penned George Jones hit, was the harbinger of many great recordings to come and offered proof that Patty was indeed the real deal. I doubt that Kelly or Taylor or Martina could make a convincing recording of the song – they simp[ly aren’t soulful enough singers.

    • Razor X September 18, 2009 at 12:18 am

      I’ve been a fan ever since I heard her sing “If My Heart Had Windows” over 20 years ago. Can’t believe it’s been that long. Not only is she the “real deal” but she is virtually the sole female artist of her generation who didn’t sell out and try to become a pop diva.

      • Steve from Boston September 18, 2009 at 1:09 am

        I truly believe that the very highest pinnacle of artistic integrity is inhabited by two artists, Patty Loveless and Emmylou Harris, amoung the high profile, active singers anyway. Emmy’s a little too eclectic for my taste sometimes though, and Patty has the stonger pure Country identity, so she is my favorite. Patty Loveless truly is tthe real deal, and the true Country ideal.

        Patty’s “Chains” video was my first exposure to her music, and that really made me sit up and take notice. But it was You Don’t Seem To Miss Me, as well as her solid string of 21st century masterpieces that really brought me into the fold and made her my absolute favorite.

  35. Razor X September 18, 2009 at 9:13 pm

    Since no one’s mentioned it yet, I’ll cast a vote for “A Thousand Times A Day” as another one of my favorites. It’s a well-written song, beautifully sung and the production is just right.

  39. Marc September 23, 2009 at 6:17 am

    My patty song preference changes a couple of times a year.. right now I’d for sure say “Lonely Too Long”. The soft plodding rhythm and gentle lyrics can’t be beat. I often wonder what it would sound like sung by Miss Womack, as she is the master of the cheating song, but that may just ruin the thought of an otherwise perfect song.

  40. Music man September 23, 2009 at 7:24 pm

    Would owning every CD starting with her MCA years Greatest Hits (some cassette tapes of the albums) though all her Epic CD’s, the Bluegrass and White Snow Christmas CD and Sleepless Nights, help me to win Mountain Soul II?

    I will not grovel… I will not grovel…

    Yes, I will grovel…

  41. Dawna September 24, 2009 at 12:13 pm

    One of my favorite Patty Loveless songs is “When Angels Fly” I love most all of her music.

  42. travis in va September 24, 2009 at 2:08 pm

    My favorites are “nothin but the wheel” and “on your way home”. Patty was in va last week and sold mountain soul two at her concert. Yall gotta buy this album, you will not regret it. I like it better than the first!

  43. Annie September 26, 2009 at 12:29 pm

    “Water Into Wine” is my favorite. I also love “Ships” & “I Don’t Want to Feel Like That”.

  44. TENNsourmash September 26, 2009 at 11:15 pm

    My favorite Patty song is “Halfway Down” one of the best country rock songs EVER. I know its not “her” song but she certainly was a big part in making “When I Call Your Name” a classic. I like everything she sings.

    • Steve from Boston September 27, 2009 at 2:30 am

      Love Patty’s Lauderdale stuff….and regarding “When I Call Your Name”..producer Tony Brown said he “almost started crying” when Patty came in on her part…It is a breathtaking song, maybe Vince and Patty’s finest.

  45. Christine L September 27, 2009 at 12:05 pm

    I was finally lucky enough to see Patty Loveless live for the first time this past January as she toured to support “Sleepless Nights.” The venue was fantastic– a small theatre in the Lincoln Center for Performing Arts in New York City. She and her band looked so great against the glass pane that looked out on the city lights. I have followed her on TV appearances at such events as the CMAs and always wanted a chance to see her live. At this event, my expecations were exceeded– she sounded absolutely superb live. When she sang “You Don’t Seem to Miss Me,” I cried. That song for me captures a moment in time in my youth– when I was first going to college and so homesick. Patty’s music helped me to get through those times and I continue to enjoy her new material. So, although I love many of her songs (“When Fallen Angels Fly”, “You Can Feel Bad,” “Keep Your Distance”), I would have to say “You Don’t Seem to Miss Me” is my favorite song.

  46. Sean September 27, 2009 at 5:18 pm

    “Here I Am” is probably my favorite song by Patty. She has such a beautiful voice. I love it! And I can’t wait for this album to come out!!! 🙂

  47. Brian Morrison September 28, 2009 at 12:27 am

    Every Patty Loveless is a classic from Blame It On Your Heart to Lonely Too Long to How Can I Help You Say Goodbye back to Chains and Timber. My favourite has to be When Fallen Angels Fly which is also my fave CD. The song is inspirational yet contemporary and it speaks to everyone and you can all find your own meaning. When I actually started writing my first screenplay, I used it as a working title. Can’t wait for Mountain Soul II.

  48. Jonnie H September 28, 2009 at 2:15 am

    I love so many Patty Loveless songs, it’s hard to pick a favorite. Chains was my favorite as a kid and I really liked She Drew a Broken Heart when I was a teen, but now I guess I would have to say How Can I Help You To Say Goodbye would have to be my favorite.

  49. ikkinlala September 28, 2009 at 2:31 am

    May Canadians enter? It’s hard to choose a favourite, but mine (at least tonight) is Nothin’ But The Wheel.

  50. vickie September 28, 2009 at 12:05 pm

    how can I help you say goodbye

  51. BetsyBlue September 28, 2009 at 1:20 pm

    When the Fallen Angels Fly and I Don’t Want to Feel Like That are 2 songs with words that come straight form MY heart…….I know those feelings too well!

  52. T Partridge September 28, 2009 at 10:22 pm

    …. My favorite is “After All”- maybe because it was the first song I ever heard by Patty, and I could tell she was going to develop into a great singer. She actually went in a different direction than I imagined from that song, and that’s all the better. I can alway expect nothing but the best from Patty Loveless.

  53. frankc September 30, 2009 at 12:06 pm

    My favorite song is “I Don’t Want to Feel Like That”. The emotion she puts into that song will rip you up. Everyone has felt like that at one time or another and can relate. Awesome song from the best country singer EVER.
