If tonight's the night, then today's my day
That I should hang it all on display.
Yours is just a losers' game
And I decided that I should play

Throw your arms around my neck
I won't be soon to forget
Throw your arms around my neck
I won't be soon to forget

Felt the wind's direction beginning to change
Clouds so softly full of rain
The summer fell and the winter sprang
Now it's all a feeling I can't get back again

Throw your arms around my neck
I won't be soon to forget
Oh, throw your arms around my neck
I won't be soon to forget

Cloudy thoughts against a clear blue sky
When the feeling came, I felt like getting high
With no sense to try to find my peace of mind
'Cause maybe baby I was born to win, dissatisfied
And you know I cannot live or die, so

Throw your arms around my neck
I won't be soon to forget, no no no
Throw your arms around my neck
I won't be soon to forget

Throw your arms around my neck
I won't be soon to forget
Throw your arms around my neck
I won't be soon to forget

Throw your arms around my neck, hold me, hold me, hold me
I won't be soon to forget
Throw your arms around my neck
I won't be soon to forget

As some others have said below, this seems to be song without any form of hook. Not bad. But not that great.
One of the most boring songs I've ever heard. The glorious times of CC are gone.
Too repetitive!
This music is fantastic!

I concure. For some unknown reason, I've always thought of that word whenever I hear one of their songs.
Ah well, can't like'em all.

No contractual obligation here, it's their first independent release.  They chose songs that were early influences for them individually and as a band.  I like it.
 
They sing Return of the Grievous Angel, that's all I need to know.

I have a thing for Adam Duritz (don't ask me why) and I bought this, but haven't gotten through it yet. All covers? Bah! Just a way to fulfill a contractual obligation.

Saw them 2 summers ago at Ravinia, and I enjoyed the show, but they let another band do a lot, and I came to see the Crows.

Not a bad new song from a band that used to be a favorite of mine. They really lost their way as they went along, in my view. I re-listened to Saturday Nights and Sunday Mornings a couple days ago and it really is mediocre at best. Filled with sloppy production, bad guitar wankery, strained, unnatural vocals, and bad outtros. Hard Candy was surprisingly decent on re-listen. I'm going to check out This Desert Life next, the album I kind of feel was the turning point. An interesting experiment, going back through the catalog of a band you used to love but lost interest in.

Anyway, here's hoping Underwater Sunshine has more good cuts on it. I haven't bought yet..

I checked out this new album, it is all cover songs, some more obscure than others.  I guess the part of their brains that writes songs is taking a prolonged holiday.  Overall, it is disappointing on the initial listen.
Adam is finally letting the guitarist get some jams in. Nice. 7.
I hear a distinctly Crackeresque sound in the instrumentals, most certainly not the vocals. The singing of this band has never appealed to me in the least.

Kinda boring for the Crows.............ho hum......
Oooooh new Counting Crows. It's not bad! His voice is still distinct yet not as annoying as the album after the August and Everything After album. {#Motor}
Cool, new Counting Crows!
This is getting a lot of air time in Philly recently.
