The 11 Best Songs By Ryan Adams and the Cardinals

When you have two kids, getting free time is almost better than sex. During free time, you get to do anything you want to clear your head. Having sex you run the risk of having another kid and even less free time.

Here are the 11 Best Songs By Ryan Adams and the Cardinals:

1. If I Am A Stranger (Cold Roses)
2. Don't Fail Me Now (Jacksonville City Nights)
4. Sweet Illusions (Cold Roses)
5. Always On My Mind (Hot Tulips)
6. These Girls (Easy Tiger)
7. Meadowlake Street (Cold Roses)
8. The Hardest Part (Jacksonville City Nights)
9. Let It Ride (Cold Roses)
10. September (Jacksonville City Nights)
11. Down in A Hole (Follow the Lights)

Guh. No way is "Let It Ride" not topping this list. The others are all fine selections, of course, but... Really?

For f-cks sake! This band has recorded so many great tunes, and only 3 of them appears on your list ("Let It Ride", "How Do You Keep ...", and "September"). For example: where is "Two", "Goodbye Rose" or "Blue Hotel"? I'm not dissing you - I love your blog - but get a grip! The majority of the stuff on your list isn't even close to the Cardinals best - for instance, nowadays they never play "Meadowlake Street" live, would be surprised if Ryan even remembers the chords! But to be constructive, and not only whine -
