The Top 20 Ryan Adams Songs - American Songwriter

Weird list. Weird timing. Weird coming from American Songwriter. As someone who has still only listened to like five Ryan songs since shit went down, it did make me miss the music a lot, though... Urgh.

Interesting list. Some really good calls on there and a few big omissions. I don't like Tina Toledo and I really like Dear Chicago so that's a big change for me.

Seems like a pretty biased list from someone that already had a predisposition (which he admits was set) to anything after whiskeytown. Also to say Heartbreaker was super overrated at the time? I wouldnt have anything from Rock N Roll (which Ryan basically admits is a Fuck you to his label" on this with the exception of "anybody want to take me home"

This reeks of someone who wants people to know he knows his whole catalog.

I liked paper moon, but how is that the second song you pull from that album after Jacksonville Skyline?

Guess he has a publicist ATM or no way would this get written now. Perhaps they're trying to prime the pump for his "so soon" article telling "his side of the story."

Re: The Top 20 Ryan Adams Songs - American Songwriter

Bizarre list.Some great songs of course but I would be amazed if more than 4 of these ended up on anyone else’s list.

Re: The Top 20 Ryan Adams Songs - American Songwriter

Counted 9 on that list that I thought were reasonable.

My list would probably change day to day but today this feels pretty good:

Anybody Wanna Take Me Home, My Winding Wheel, Dear Chicago, Magnolia Mountain, Jacksonville Skyline, Come Pick Me Up, In My Time of Need, If I Am A Stranger, Mockingbird, Strawberry Wine, Carolina Rain, Sylvia Plath, Please Do Not Let Me Go, I See Monsters, Halloween, Dear John, The Sun Also Sets, Excuse Me While I Break My Own Heart, 16 Days, Cannonball Days

Re: The Top 20 Ryan Adams Songs - American Songwriter

One sign of a great artist is no two "top 20" lists are the same, there are just too many good songs to narrow it down. I'd have to have like a top 50, and even that would probably change day to day.

Indeed. ‘Jimmy Whistlenut’ made me think about this other song from Ryan, which I consider to be one of his most sincere, ‘I’m Sorry Marty’: .
