Crimson and Clover (5:24)

Cover of Anthology

From Anthology and 95 other releases

In an interview with Songfacts Tommy James explained that he constructed Crimson And Clover from his favorite color and his favorite flower. He explained: “They were just two of my favorite words that came together. Actually, it was one morning as I was getting up out of bed, and it just came to me, those two words. And it sounded so poetic. I had no idea what it meant, or if it meant anything. They were just two of my favorite words.”
