I wanna be Bob Dylan....



#10, Counting Crows, August and Everything After

I do realize this is a repeat selection and may raise some eyebrows as a top-10 selection, but so be it.... It's one of the most worn CDs in my collection. The Crows are one of the first rock bands that I remember liking. Their debut into the rock music scence was at roughly the same time as mine as our paths crossed somewhere in the early 1990s. This is an album that I enjoy listening to without skipping any songs. My favorite songs on the album are Omaha, Raining in Baltimore and Rain King (especially the extra-raspy "yeaaaaaaaaah").

It feels nice to finally be in the single digits......

Great pick...this is one of Sara's favorites. I'll introduce you to Mr. Jeff Buckley when you come visit in March...

"Mr. Jones" is such a classic and everytime I hear it on the radio, it goes up to full blast. This was in my Top 10 when I did a ranking for my undergraduate newspaper in '97. It's certainly still in my Top 100, but I just haven't listened to it in a long time. I think that's about to change.

Hey,

Found my way to your blog because you mentioned Bill Mallonee but judging by your subtitle we have a love for Counting Crows in common too!

I did some writing about the band recently which I put up on my blog in 5 parts.

I liked this when it first came out. T-Bone Burnett production got me to listed to it. The problem was that radio overplayed "Mr. Jones". It got to the point where I would turn the radio off or change the station whem it came on--ruined the song for me. And I never bought anything after that...<:-(.>
