"With the windows clear and the mannequins' eyes"

To make things confusing, it's also Ryan Adams's birthday today. I fell in love 10 years ago, when Kozmo, or possibly Amazon, insisted I buy Heartbreaker. I think a coworker liked his former band, Whiskeytown, so why not. And his resemblance to Paul Weller on the cover was kinda taunting me.

It was the dot com era and we all had jobs and made a shitload of money! So fuck yes, Kozmo, bring me that CD and some deodorant and some blank VHS tapes! And hurry (for no particular reason).

It's a great album. He's a fucking talented dude. And it was this song (track 9 but song 8) when I decided it was love. Ryan was my birthday of the day last  year, but I fucking love this song, so here you go.

Happy birthday dude! Rock on!
