"Desire" is a song by Ryan Adams from his 2002 album Demolition. The song, at the length of 3:41, was not released as a single from the album. It originally attracted little attention, and even though the review site "Music Box" described it as crossing "U2 with Bob Dylan", several major reviews – like Rolling Stone and The A.V. Club – did not even mention the song.
The song did however gain popularity later on, as a soundtrack for various popular television series. On 26 January 2005 the song was featured on the West Wing episode "King Corn". A year later, on 20 February 2006, it was also used for the House, M.D. episode "Skin Deep".
