Ryan Adams Names His Favorite Alt-Country Song


Ryan Adams took to Facebook today to post a video of his favorite alt-country song… and no, it isn’t by Whiskeytown, Jason and the Scorchers, The Jayhawks, Iris Dement or Uncle Tupelo.

Adams reserves that honor for “I Remember You,” the 1989 MTV and radio hit from New Jersey hard rock band Skid Row. “This is probably my favorite alt-country song ever written,” he writes. “The solo is unreal. Like a lazer dancing through the mind of a vaporized panther-beast.” Which is how we’ve always thought of it too.

Sing along to Sebastian Bach’s magnum opus below (from back in the days when the youth was wild, and couples left love letters in the sand).

Adams is currently in the studio with producer Glyn Johns prepping his next studio album.
