Welcome to the Thursday Tunes! Each week, I will showcase music, whether new or old. Hopefully you will find something that interests you here!
Last week, I was chatting on Twitter with Rebecca from The Book Lady’s Blog and a few others, and we began discussing the band Counting Crows. (Actually, if I remember correctly, they were discussing it and I jumped in – the wonder that is Twitter!) I never seriously considered Counting Crows for Thursday Tunes because my main goal is to showcase artists and albums that are lesser known. I figured Counting Crows was incredibly well known.
Imagine my shock when most of the people on Twitter hadn’t even heard of Counting Crows, or only knew one song by them! Rebecca suggested doing Counting Crows as my Thursday Tunes one week, and I definitely agree that more people need to know about this amazing band. Though August and Everything After is my favorite album by them, I’m choosing their greatest hits album Films About Ghosts for Thursday Tunes. Though it doesn’t have all of my favorite songs on it, it’s a great showcase of their range.
My favorite songs off of Films About Ghosts are “Mr. Jones,” “A Long December,” “Anna Begins,” and “Hanginaround.” You may also remember the song “Accidentally in Love” – it got a lot of airplay because it was on the Shrek soundtrack.
Films About Ghosts can be purchased from the Amazon MP3 Store for $9.49.
