Two nights ago, Ryan Adams played intimate, acoustic performance of "My Wrecking Ball" along with his live performance of "Gimme Something Good" on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. The web exclusive feels more like an intimate music video than a live performance. The screen is broken up into fragments, showing different angles of Adams strumming his Harmony Sovereign Jumbo Deluxe acoustic guitar and the pianist accompanying him. The style of the video beautifully mirrors the mood of Adams' heartbreaking song.
"My Wrecking Ball" is an emotionally raw song about longing for someone who is not good for you, but you desire nonetheless. The heartbreaking tune brings to mind some of Adams' classic ballads such as "Come Pick Me Up" and "Everybody Knows." Once again, Adams achieves in writing a tender, yet honest song about the struggles of love and the heartache which follows.
