    Round Here.

    Step out the front door like a ghost into the fog where no one notices the contrast of white on white. And in between the moon and you the angels get a better view of the crumbling difference between wrong and right. I walk in the air between the rain through myself and...

    Amazing Poetry

    I got the August and everything after album on cassette when I was about 16 (I think). It was and to this day still is the only album I have ever bought where I enjoyed every single song. You know how there are usually a couple of not so good songs on a CD? This one didn't have...

    On A Tuesday In Amsterdam Long Ago

    A picture of Amsterdam Bare trees under glass framed in the grey and white afternoon light Of a winter long passed When I was a riser To Dublin I'd roam She was a bareback rider Some miles from home Come back to me Come back to me Come back to me Come back to me...

    Counting Crows Are Among My Favourites

    I was first introduced to the Counting Crows when I was about fifteen.  I loved their music right away and still listen to them whenever I'm in a relaxing mood.

    Anna Begins

    I've seen all of their concerts in my city.  A few years ago, they performed "Anna Begins" and I was in tears.  I had never "heard" the song that way on the CD.  The live performance really drove home the meaning of the song. Oh, and Adam...

    Memories If Mr. Jones

    About the time that this song was released I began dating a young man that was in the military.  His last name was "Jones."  I was feeling particularly loving one night and called the radio station to dedicate this song to him.  It caught on and a lot of...

    Leave My Wings Behind Me...

    I've seen them live three times and get goose bumps everytime.  Adam Duritz has quite possibly written a song for every experience in my life.

    I First Heard 'mr Jones'...

    ... when I was sixteen and my friend Keef played it to me. We danced around his bedroom and I borrowed his 'August and Everything After' CD. I never gave it back.

    One Of My Favorite Bands

    I'm assuming the nature of this group is for those of us who appreciate the band, The Counting Crows. They are one of my favorites. I saw them in concert a couple of years ago, and it was one of the best I've ever attended. If the purpose of this group is for people that...

    August and Everything After

    My favorite album of all time.  I could listen to this album all day.  It's mellow, emotional, beautiful.  My profile name comes from my favorite song on the album, "A Murder of One."  Other highlights, "Anna Begins", "It's Raining...

    But Probably Not The Same Way You Do...

    Some people count crows for fun, others for death, I do it because of I find a deep fascination with crows, and ravens. I want a "pet" of both of them. Well, those and snakes. :) Right this second I'm at 4. ^~^

    Very Melodic

    I heard them on the radio when I was in highschool, and liked "mr Jones". I really got into them in my 20's, and discovered what did not pass on the radio. I like about them they use instruments that are too often in the "others" category, and that gives depth...
