I first found out about Steve Earle through this song. It has remained one of my favorite songs. Steve has released a lot of great songs since but it’s the honesty of this song that I like so much.
After I heard it I immediately bought the album “Exit 0” and enjoyed the complete album. The lyrics ring true of the human spirit…we are never satisfied. The 80s were not my favorite musical decade but Steve Earle was one of the highlights for me.
Steve is a very underrated American songwriter.
The song made it to #26 on the Billboard charts in 1987. The album Exit 0 made it to #15 on the charts.
I Ain’t Ever Satisfied
