49. Ryan Adams: New York, New York

Found on: Gold (2001)
Picked by: RN, PA

I need more songs about New York about as much a I need more canker sores, but New York, New York endures because it's not just a rote celebration of the "capital of the world," it's a goodbye. As Adams mourns a "busted up and broken up" relationship he also gives a fond farewell to the city where it took place.

  1. I've got to add "I Believe in a Thing Called Love" by The Darkness to this list:) I was surprised to hear that they actually have a new album out in which they continue their awesome glam-rock style. They actually cover Radiohead which I though was pretty sweet..
