Recovering The Satellites — Tony Memmel I love the vocal treatment, technically, musically, and just emotionally It makes it all very personal. The melodic choices do that too. You take it to some very cool places. The outro is brilliant.
Waiting that long in the song to come with the kick drum makes it kinda devastating. It really means something by the time it comes in and it never goes too big and outstrips the song.
Makes you ache for it. After that, I just loved it. My only complaint is that the recording level is so low. I just wanted it to be LOUD.
Just want them to crush the room whenever they enter. Loved the passing chords you added.
Big points for choosing a tough song and then absolutely going for it. Loved that late gtr solo. I like it more. You really get the song and you made it utterly your own.
Reading between the Grooves: Counting Crows: Meet On The Ledge
The guy singing this could have written the song. You establish a personality and everything just builds on that. Once again, a whole new look at the song. Does a crazy cool thing to the song right there. Goodnight Elisabeth — Jeronimo Haunting.
Counting Crows (Music) - TV Tropes
Love the tone and the mood. Love the changes you made to the melodies and rhythms of the vocal. The song declares its personality in the first 10 seconds and then holds it together for all four minutes.
On the whole, while they have clear musical influences, they don't wear them on their sleeves, but there are a few cases that stand out. The former is about jonesing for a fix, trying to get "a little oblivion" so he doesn't have to think about himself or his life. The latter is happier, though—Adam, Amy, and the others they'd shoot up with always used to talk about being taken on a "rocket ride" to somewhere they really belonged; eventually, Amy got clean, finally getting "out of this gutter".
To lessen confusion, the former is now listed on the album as Dave Bryson, and the latter is often announced in-concert as "Immy". Just listen to Round Here. They don't use profanity that much, but there are a few songs where it pops up "I'm Not Sleeping", "Recovering the Satellites", etc. Real Life Writes the Plot: The acoustic disc of Across a Wire features several radical examples of this trope, incorporating instruments like banjos and accordions that weren't included on the original versions.
Counting Crows’ frontman branching out
Adam actually says they played mostly rearrangements of their electric material for this show because they liked the new feelings and meanings the process of rearranging the songs brought to the surface. So if you see that movie star and me If you should see my picture in a magazine Or if you fall asleep by the bedroom TV Honey, I'm just trying to make some sense out of me. Well, less of a gag than a theme; during live performances, the band tends to work sections of "A Murder of One" into their other songs.
It helps that they tend towards jamming while performing live. Also the Arena had curtained off the upper tier so the O2 was probably only really half full, if that.
With the London gig following the Dublin gig these were the only two venues on the tour for the UK and Ireland so I was surprised not to see a bigger crowd. No matter, the Crows were playing the last night of their worldwide tour celebrating 25 years and didn't disappoint. They also played a Teenage Fanclub number that they usually play in the warm-up earlier in the day, and a favourite of mine, Mrs Potter's Lullaby. Adam likes to chat to the audience and explained the background to nearly every song.
As is quite often the case the the sound mix was not quite right for the opening numbers and Adam's vocals were slightly drowned out by the instruments, but once the mix was right the Crows really got into their stride. They finished with Holiday in Spain and you came away feeling you had your money's worth.
It was the first time in 25 years I had seen the Crows live and was determined no to miss them this time they came to the UK. I thoroughly enjoyed the show.
