End of the year playlist- #15- Counting Crows- Come Around

December 10th, 2008

Counting backwards from 15-1 (so when you scroll down, it’ll be in order).

Counting Crows front man Adam Duritz hasn’t found closure as this song ends his high concept “Saturday Nights, Sunday Mornings.” His girl dumped him, but he seems to understand it’s for the best. He can finally move on with his life. Then again, he might be singing to his band and fans. Either way, it’s probably the most hopeful break-up song I’ve ever heard. I can’t think of a better note with which to end a year — and start a new one — with.
