BREAKUP # 5 - Ryan Adams - 'How do you keep love alive?'

Ryan Adams - How do you keep love alive (2005)

This fantastic, underrated track is so good that a health warning should be issued with it - "Do not listen to after a breakup as it will quite possibly send you over the edge", and could quite easily be the musical version of 'Marley & Me' - a guaranteed lip warbler.

It features on 2005's double album 'Cold Roses' which was the start of a very productive year - he also released Jacksonville City Nights & 29 - and I admit, it gets me every time.

Ryan's currently on a European acoustic tour and has been recording a new album with legendary Led Zepplin producer Glyn Jones, after a long musical hiatus in which he's written a couple of books, married Mandy Moore, and got off the demon drugs!  I'm looking forward to hearing his new stuff!
