TUESDAY BLUES! Counting Crows - Mrs Potters Lullaby

Counting Crows - Mrs Potters Lullaby (1999)

Some songs have the uncanny knack of putting a smile on my grumpy chops, this is one of them. It features on This Desert Life and is supposedly written about the actress Monica Potter, of whom singer Adam Duritz became "inspired" when seeing in a Movie - probably means fancied.


I'll always have a soft spot for Counting Crows in my life, from my early 20's where I'd have drunken sing-a-longs to August and Everything After, to Rock Star stories of friends who met Adam, and seeing them live a number of times in the last decade - The best of which was seeing them in Bristol Academy, a fairly small venue, which allowed the audience to witness a flawless performance that brought a tear to the eye....

This was the one that got me into the Crows, what a brilliant song, it is a song Dylan could have wrote, full of great lines one after the other. I am having a Crows fest day!

Since we are all on the truth tree, I've got to say I never really liked/got this track. Everybody would just go crazy for it and sing along when it was played but I sort of had a forced smile while tapping my foot. What do I know eh, I'm a beat junky!

Top tune! Reminds me of watching them at V fest '01. Glorious sunny day, warm cider, the smell of frying onions from the nearby burger van, does it get any better?!

No definitely warm cider! You haven't been to a festival in the summer have you!
