Hey Parker, It's Christmas (single)

(Lost Highway Records)

Released December, 2003

1. Hey Parker, It's Christmas

Written and Produced by Ryan Adams

2. Don't Even Know Her Name

The Background/Random Info

This promo 7" Christmas single was given away at indie record stores with the purchase of Rock N Roll or Love is Hell. Although "Don't Even Know Her Name" is the b-side, these records are actually mislabeled and have "Ah, Life" listed as the b-side. Regardless this is a great little extrasingle that Lost Highway and Ryan decided to give their fans. "Hey Parker, It's Christmas" is a slow maudlin song with shattered guitar lines and fits in nicely with the rest of Love is Hell. The song was written for Ryan's girlfriend at the time - actress Parker Posey, and features Ryan singing in a British accent about Christmas in New York City. "Don't Even Know Her Name" has been released on the single for "So Alive" and on the Moroccan Role EP, and is a great rockabilly influenced, hard driving rocker.
