12/30 OT/ Sunday night football: For TTWBG

"Answering Bell" is a song by alt-country singer-songwriter Ryan Adams from his 2001 album Gold. It was released as a CD single in 2002.[1]

The song features Counting Crows frontman Adam Duritz on backing vocals.[2] When Ryan Adams performed the song on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in February 2002, Duritz sang with the band.

[3]A music video for the song, directed by Luke Scott, was shot in January 2002. Loosely based on The Wizard of Oz, the video features cameos byElton John, Adam Duritz, and singer-songwriter Leona Naess,[4] who was briefly engaged to Adams.[5]

Adams reportedly got the idea for the video while sick in bed in a Hamburg, Germany hotel room, delirious from the flu medication he was taking. The singer-songwriter also claims that he asked Bryan Adams, who was staying in the same hotel at the time, to appear in the video, but Bryan turned him down.[6]
