"'Let Me Down Easy'" is a song by Roger Daltrey, who at the time was the former lead singer of The Who. The song was written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance and included on Daltrey's sixth solo album Under a Raging Moon as the first track on the second side of the LP. The album was a tribute to The Who's former drummer Keith Moon. The song was released as a single in 1985 on Atlantic Records.

The single reached number 86 on the US Hot 100 singles chart and number 11 on Billboard's Top Rock Tracks chart, but failed to reach the UK Singles Chart.[1]


When Jim Vallance was asked about the track, he recalled that he wrote the song during January 1984 and that: "Adams and I originally wrote "Let Me Down Easy" for Stevie Nicks, but I don't know if she ever heard the song. Regardless, I thought Roger did a superb job."[2]
