    I got to see Counting Crows last night! My first concert at the Verizon Ampitheater just outside San Antonio, and it was even free. I won tickets off Livenation.com a few weeks ago.

    Goo Goo Dolls opened for them and were also good, but I was really just waiting for Counting Crows to come out. Here's (most) of their set list from last night:

    Counting Crows set list:
    Omaha
    Anna Begins
    Mrs. Potters Lullaby
    Rain King
    Angels Of The Silences
    Big Yellow Taxi
    Hangin' Around
    A Long December
    The Ghost In You (from the Clueless soundtrack, originally by Psychedelic Furs)
    Friend of the Devil (by Grateful Dead)
    Holiday In Spain

    They also did just two songs I wasn't familiar with, but overall I was singing along to every word. Excellent show!

  • Perennial Favorites #1: Hidden Gems

    28 Mar 2006, 10:21 by dreamstorm

    Some songs in my library are so good, that no matter what, I will always be in the mood to listen to over and over again. These select few belong on my prized "Perennial Favorites" playlist, which I shall be sharing with you all in installments -- aren't you excited?? Anyway, for my first post, we concentrate on amazing songs by artists much more well known for generally crappier tracks.

    On a High
    I mean, Barely Breathing is great and all, but it just doesn't compare to breezy happiness of this single which reminds me of the sun shining on a rippling ocean expanse or gradated shades of blue.

    Closer To You
    I'm pretty much neutral on One Headlight and all of The Wallflowers' various other singles...I never really expected that they would be a band to produce one of my all time favorite songs. However, Closer to You is brilliant in almost every which way -- it has gorgeous soft yearning vocals and lyrics and a serene dreamy sound and atmosphere that make me love Jacob Dylan as much as his father.
