Much can be said about Ryan Adams – frankly, much HAS been said by me, as I’ve been known to publicly declare my adoration – but he’s received a lot of acclaim lately, both from his involvement with Jenny Lewis’ new song as well as his incredible new album that dropped a few weeks ago. (Which, if you haven’t yet checked out, DO. It’s ol’ skool’ Whiskeytown-ish and all sorts of listenable.) But last week, he melted my heart in a way I hadn’t previously thought was possible: he covered Foreigner. It’s like the best thing found the other best thing and made THE VERY BEST THING.
Sounds like Ryan wants to know what love is. And Mandy Moore, if you don’t show him, you’d better watch out…I will.
