Midweek Music Break: Counting Crows – Raining in Baltimore

Going back to the throwback music this week, mostly because my wife was in Baltimore recently, and managed to get rained on, leaving me with this Counting Crows song in my head for the next week…

I love this album in general.  It’s sullen, moody, stripped down and beautiful.  However, this song in particular highlights those traits, comprising primarily of Adam Druitz’s voice and a piano.

There’s things I remember and things I forget
I miss you I guess that I should
Three thousand five hundred miles away
But what would you change if you could?

There are songs of theirs that are catchier, but I’ve always found this one to be one of the most powerful, probably because of it’s simplicity.  Even 20+ years later, it easily pops into my head…
