Re: Best Ryan Adams piano song?

Can't decide between, in no particular order;

Don't Fail Me Now
Blossom
Night Birds
How Do You Keep Love Alive
Blue Sky Blues
Rip Off
Stop
Elizabeth, You Were Born To Play That Part
I Taught Myself How To Grow Old

Starting piano lessons soon, can't wait

Re: Best Ryan Adams piano song?

Hard to pick just one:

- The Rescue Blues (especially live)
- Starlite Diner (love the imagery in this song)
- Elizabeth... (especially the coda...lyrics are absolutely brilliant as well)
- Stop (he kills it vocally here)

Really hoping he includes at least one or two piano-based songs on the next release...last "original" one was on Cardinology. Yikes.

Actually, i think there's a list of songs i'd include. New York, New York and Rescue Blues live are just stunning.

The Bar is a Beautiful place is definitely worth a mention. Glad Silver Bullets has been noted.

Makes you wish for a whole album of piano-heavy songs

Shadowlands, Starlite Diner, Stop, live NYNY.... all good stuff.

Starlite is pretty much all black keys which is kind of fun.

I think I like My Blue Manhattan the best, but also How Do You Keep Love Alive? They tie.

For some reason the first song that came into my head was that piano version of New York, New York.

Not sure if you can access this but it's a playlist I made based on this discussion. Not sure if you'd agree with This Love but I enjoy it's over the top nature.

I would very much like to see the piano a big part of the live show again.

It's one of the reasons I would welcome another solo tour. Get back at the keys!
