    A standout Steve Earle mando song to add: Galway Girl
    Yep, and I believe that is Steve himself playing on those songs. Lots of mando on Steve's work, although he had Peter Rowan playing mando and some guitar on "Train a Comin' CD and on The Mountain CD it was Ronnie McCoury's tasteful mandolin work.

    Of course the list refers to rock music, but where do you draw the line? If it has drums, it's rock, I guess...so The Mountain CD is out and Train a Comin' CD is in? Tough call...

    Just picked up REM's "Out Of Time" at a yard sale, and I see that Peter Buck plays mandolin not only on "Losing My Religion" but also "Half A World Away." That brings their total of songs featuring his playing to eight, more than I'd thought, but nice to learn, thanks to our knowledgeable members. I wonder if this constitutes sufficient contribution to the mandolin lexicon for Mr. Buck to be considered a mandolinist.

    Works for me. Nice sound; reminds me of Blue Rodeo. Do they have more songs with mandolin, albums, etc?

    Most of their songs have some sort of mando content. Echo Echo is a great album all around.

    To name a few other songs off the top of my head:

    "Let You Troubles Roll By",
    “Comfort",
    "What About Everything" (the rhythm is a chop beat), and
    "Wandrin’ Around" has a bit.

    Thanks for putting the word out about these guys. Good stuff! And thanks for the song titles. This is a list of songs with mandolin, after all, and this is necessary info for that to work.

    Check out John Kruth sometime ... heavy mando on most of his CDs, particularly The Cherry Electric.
    Heard and Mallonee are probably in my top 5 artists all-time. Didn't expect to see their names come up here . . .

    There's some mandolin deep in the mix on The Push Stars' "Any Little Town" circa 1998(?). With regards to the alt-rock I tend to come across, I don't hear a lot of examples like this one, where the mandolin goes shoulder-to-shoulder (with what I'm guessing is a capoed guitar, or three) and truly sounds like part of the team.

    I've been on a big Springsteen kick lately, been listening to him my whole life and can't believe I never heard anything from "Nebraska" growing up....."Atlantic City" (which has been mentioned) is one of my favorites. Mando part is more prominent on the 2001 Live in NYC version, Van Zandt in the video is playing an Ovation.

    My contribution to the list is off the brand new Springsteen "Wrecking Ball" album....good disc by the way. "Land of Hope and Dreams" has a great mando riff.....1st time this song is on a studio album, but it was also on the aforementioned live disc.

    I have to admit, I'm freaking out a bit here. A facebook friend posted something from The Big 3 that includes a riff very similar to the melody from Shocking Blue's "Venus," which led me to post what a great under-appreciated (here in the USA) band they were, and how one of the best dollars I ever spent was on a used LP of theirs, as the rest of the album was as good if not beter than the big hit. Then looking through youtube and finding a whole lot more than what I have heard on the two LPs of theirs I own, I found this - with a decent mandolin break! The sound is a bit better on the first one, more of a video presentation on the second.






    Here's that Big 3 video, while I'm here:

    Remembered this song from High School, the other day. Looked it up, and low and behold found the Headbangers Ball clip that turned me onto this band. Not for nothing John Paul Jones arranged the strings. Yes there is mando content!

    Here's a delightful live version (starting at ~2:25) of Jethro Tull's Skating Away (On The Thin Ice Of The New Day) featuring Dave Pegg on Mandolin.

    Oh, the first 2:24 is fantastic too, but there's no MC.

    A few comments:

    1. I don't think Steve Miller's Dance, Dance, Dance uses a mandolin- possibly a banjo- it doesn't list this instrument in the discography for the album at all.

    2. The Who uses a mandolin on Mike Post's Theme and Two Thousand Years on its Endless Wire CD.

    3. I know many may not be a fan of his on this board, but I was listening to a song from Rick Springfield on a 2007 release (Venus in Overdrive) called Saint Sahara- I could swear it sounds like he's playing a mandolin in the background- hard to tell, but it sure sounds like it.
