Ryan Adams does the “Neutron Dance” — no, seriously


It’s been going on three years since Ryan Adams released an album and there’s still no official word on when the next one might emerge, although a little bird told me the other day that Ryan is in the studio now. More (I hope!) on that later. Meantime, here’s a fun thing making the rounds on the interwebs today — a very disheveled Ryan looking like he just rolled out of bed to play a solo cover of the 1984 Pointer Sisters hit “Neutron Dance,” and damned if he doesn’t make it sound as if this song was written to be done on acoustic guitar. It really is perfect.

Take a listen to Ryan’s version here; and just for the compare-and-contrast heck of it, the Pointer Sisters original from the Eddie Murphy comedy “Beverly Hills Cop” is embedded below.
