Counting Crows with Live and Collective Soul
I swear, i thought it was 1995 last night . . . but then i realized im 26 and the world is a lot different that it was in 1995. . . . . . .but you know, the music is the same, and it made me feel the same way i did when i first heard some of these songs growing up in the 90's.
Collective Soul- Alright, so i didnt see them, we walked in as they played their last song, one which i recognized . . . . but there was more important stuff to be done in the parking Lot
Live- They look the same, they sounds the same as they did in the 90's. I remember wanting to see them in concert when i was like 14 or 15, never did though, little did i know, in 2007 id see them in Wilmington of all places. They started with my favorite Live song, 'All Over You'. I remember requesting that song on Y100 while doing dishes one day. It amazing what sticks with you, actually whats amazing is how music make things stick with you. So they played a lot of favorites, lot of stuff from Throwing Copper. The set ended with Lightning Crashes, which was one i really wanted to hear. One thing i dont like is when they try to put some variety in the chorus and make it a little different. Its ok for a few notes here and there, but dont do the whole thing, theres a reason i love that song, and i want to hear it.
Counting Crows- Honestly, i think i was more excited to see the Live than the Counting Crows, but the Crows put on one hell of a show. I really dont knw what so say about it, but Adam Duritz really didnt miss a note (he missed a step and almost fell at one point post-twirl, but he caught himself and kept going like it didnt happen) A few of the songs that stuck out - Hangin Around, Ms Potters Lullaby, Richard maunel is Dead, A Long December, Round Here, & Mr. Jones. They did that song from Shrek, Accidently in Love, and one annoying song they did with Michelle Branch - or whatever her name is. I would definatly see them again.
