It’s high time for some Ryan Adams. I love this man’s music more than any other singer/songwriter there ever was, and ever will be. The chorus of “Everybody Knows” is one that helps take the song to a new height. It’s a simple song, but the words drive right through you.
I love the lines “He says your name, it echoes through my head like it was a canyon. He says your name, and I know what’s up. You come to me sometimes when I’m thinkin’ like a cannonball shootin’ out a cannon, and I forget whatever it was I was thinkin’ about…” The “rhyme” of “canyon” with “cannon” is brilliant, and brings together two totally different mental pictures. I could write forever about Ryan Adams, because I love love love him, but I’ll stop for now.
