Nick Hornby writes about sadness being better than... →
I’m not sure I agree but this is a pretty good quote from the article: “Some people are at their best when they’re miserable. Ryan Adams’s beautiful Heartbreaker album is, I suspect, the product of a great deal of pain, and “Oh My Sweet Carolina” is its perfect, still centre, its faint heartbeat, a song so quiet that you don’t want to breathe throughout its duration.” I agree...
