SONGS THAT MEAN A SHIT TON TO ME: "New York, New York"- Ryan Adams

Right now I am waging a very public war about whether or not I want to spend the money to see Mr. Ryan Adams this December. word on the street is his new album is good. I BET IT IS. 




anyway, this song will always remind me of my first love in high school. I listened to this song and thought about her on long, winding busrides home. It didn't click with me how good of a song this was UNTIL that point, because up until then my mind considered it the "9/11 song." (because VH1 played this non-stop after 9/11).


NOTHING EVER BECAME OF THAT, BUT WHATEVS.


Found myself a picture that would fit in the folds
Of my wallet and it stayed pretty good
Still amazed I didn't lose it on the roof of the place
When I was drunk and I was thinking of you
Every day the children they were singing their tune
Out on the streets and you could hear from inside
Used to take the subway up to Houston and 3rd
I would wait for you and I'd try to hide



Now I live here and this song means 1000000x as much because I recognize everything. and the video, too! Upper West Side! Churches! Warmth!


question:  DO YOU HAVE A SONG LIKE THIS NO YOU DO NOT






I <3 you subway
Ryan Adams I WILL SACRIFICE HEAT 4 U
