ehhh. not worthy.
To me, this is what a band sounds like when they\'re trying to make money.
Utter shite :evil:
The most overplayed band on the air. Right up there with the Beatles.
I don't understand what all the grumbling is about. If you wanna say that his voice is annoying, fine. If you wanna say that their songs are sounding alike, fine. Your mileage may vary. BUT — to complain that a song is "too pop" is ridiculous! Lyrically and musically, CC compares well with the majority of artists on RP, and extremely well with the vast majority of mainstream musicians. I would say that a significant percentage of RP's music is power pop to at least some degree, and obviously we like it that way, because we're all still listening. I suspect that simply because CC gets all sorts of airplay on regular FM stations that, with a number of indi-music lovers, there is a negative halo attached to their music. Those people need to get over it. :evil:

Agreed ... it all sounds the same and his voice is so ANOYING :frustrated:
Wow, a Counting Crows song that\'s actually kind-of listenable. All their other stuff is too depressing.
I much prefer this track to \'Good Time\', which has gotten much more play. I would also suggest that \'Miami\' is the best track off this CD - play that one too!
Horrid. All their music sounds too much alike since their first album.
An homage to \"Hard Candy Christmas\", by Dolly Parton? :D
Wonder of wonders, this one is growing on me. Not bad.
blech!!! too much counting crows today. sounds the same as all their other stuff. will sound the same as their next stuff. :oops:
Good band technically, but the singer is so aggravatingly melodramatic. Maybe it\'s overuse of tremolo? BTW, Bill, this mp3 skips. :frustrated:

As soon as one comes on, I will.
I think they are great. The new album is great and ADAM is a lyrical god!!!! I want to marry him! :hug:

Adam Duritz' lyrics are amazing, take a listen sometime, the new album has some greats: Miami, & Holiday in Spain, among others. Don't get caught up on the one single that happens to get airplay to make your judgement, in my opinion, you'd be making a big mistake. Please play more crows! :)
Thanks for the support, but please spell the name right. It's PARADISE, as in RADIO ... oh, you know.
Pop or not, the guy\'s voice just makes you want to - as someone else noted - jab out your eardrums with an icepick. :frustrated:

hard candy? feh. more like saccharin -- sweet in a sickly unsatisfying way.
What is everyone\'s problem with pop craftsmanship? We have heard countless examples on this station, and some of them are the most highly rated songs. Both harmonically and lyrically, I think this song soars.

That's certainly been their trend with the last two albums. Perhaps they are getting pressure to make their songs more marketable? Most of their previous stuff would never get airplay on mainstream radio. This song is tailor-made for mainstream radio, which is why it's so sad that it's here too.
ZERO Crows! Shoot them all! Get this overly pop crap off Paradise. Stuff like this threatens to make it less than Paradise. :evil:
Not one of the better CC tunes. Way too much of a pop sound.
