Gateway song

Mike Sudhalter  |  December 20, 2008

A gateway song is one that you hear on the radio that opens up your musical tastes to an entirely new genre.

Two that I can think of are "Down at the Twist and Shout" by Mary Chapin Carpenter; it got me interested in Cajun Music. Ditto for "Much Too Young To Feel This Damn Old" by Garth Brooks. It name-checked Chris LeDoux, and introduced me to that legend's music.

What gateway songs have y'all heard?
