Ryan Adams - Desire

Seeing as it's sunny where I am, I thought today's song should fit that mood. Desire is fit for a summer's night, with that beautiful haunting quality that's just right. A gorgeous harmonica interlude in the middle only adds to that sense, and the way the guitar weaves in and out of the melody is just right. Ryan's vocals are, as usual, amazing, with the true blues quality bringing out the hurt and hope in the lyrics. Both sad and uplifting, this is a song you don't want to be without - not many can carry off such contrasts simultaneously. Listen and by comforted by the knowledge that his new album is out soon.
