To Be Young (is to be sad, is to be high)

The Ryan Adams song most have heard: To Be Young. If you’re not a believer – I most certainly am – maybe you heard it when Mitch was lacking a seat belt; or maybe you initially became captivated by it when spinning ’00’s impeccable Heartbreaker. The original isn’t one to be stepped to, but this live rendition on the sandy beaches where the mamis are darker than midnight sounds rather nice – the endless energy remains, as does the twangy bounce, and on the beach, Ryan and his entourage seem to be enjoying themselves more than ever.

Thanks to soulful harmonica throughout, a perfect strum, and everything hitting at the right time, Ryan’s five minute plus ode to a cheating girl is Ryan at his absolute best….

    Dude, I love that song Dave, it makes me happy, probably because I’m a spiteful, old fuck! I still have to say that I loved Rock N Roll! For those haters that don’t, they are missing out. Actually, I just ordered Cardinology too and it sounds fresh, even after the first spin.
