Ok, I've just signed up, and it's a "school night" (i.e. Very busy day @ work tomorrow) so I can't stay and play. I'll just say that recently I found out about and a chance to download the covers you did last year for Valentine's Day, and was blown away (of course) on your version of some of those heart-breaker tunes.
Particularly, "You Might Think" by The Cars. If you've all not seen the video, that's a must-see that you can view at: http://www.covermesongs.com/2011/10/counting-crows-adam-duritz-rele...
In honor of my first short but sweet blog post, I'll just leave all of you with a quote from one of my absolute favorites (there are sooo many others, Holiday in Spain, Miami, Hard Candy, Goodnight Elizabeth, Colorblind, St. Robinson, All My Friends)...but...
"Asleep in perfect blue buildings,
Beside the green apple sea,
Gonna get me a little oblivion, baby,
Tryin' to keep myself away from myself..myself, and me..." ~ Adam Duritz
Coincidentally (or probably not), when we viewed and eventually bought our home here in Taxachusetts, we started referring to this labor of love as OUR "Perfect Blue Building" ~ it is, of course, a blue house with white trim.
Much love and appreciation for all the memories your songs bring, both from me (and also on behalf of my husband Bill, who originally showed me the magic that is...Counting Crows.)
