Song of the Week: Ryan Adams - To Be Young

From Ryan Adams' debut album, Heartbreaker, we present here, To Be Young. The song was co-written and performed with David Rawlings, of Gillian Welch fame. What a funky little bridge this song has. 


  1. This goes to show that there's still some good catching downstream from Dylan. Beautiful tune. The very end sounds fishy though. Has to be spliced.

  2. You talking about the smudge around 2:54? I think if it was a splice it would be more artful. Sounds like someone hit a bum note. Just like they dd in the Highway 61 Revisited sessions from which this song, as you note, clearly derives some life.
