Recently my giant younger brother and I joined a couple of broads at a karaoke night for an atrocious version of “Mr. Jones” by Counting Crows. I used to really like the song as a kid, and I still see it’s appeal, but ultimately I have ultimately come to realize the Counting Crows are total shit. Not only that, but their stupid looking, trying-too-hard lead singer owes his entire career to one, incredibly shitty Bruce Springsteen song.
The same shitty Bruce song that made Manfred Mann a hit.
Originally I was going to go through both songs, but that seems incredibly time consuming. Just listen to both these hacks mumble there way through meaningless songs.
