    Kinda surprised Hanginaround made it this far. There are some really great tracks on this that left too soon

    Candy may be dandy, but not as dandy as Hard Candy!

    Hard Candy
    ROUND ONE

    1.) If I Could Give All My Love, or: Richard Manuel is Dead vs. Good Time
    2.) Why Should You Come When I Call? vs. Carriage
    3.) Black and Blue vs. Up All Night (Frankie Miller Goes to Hollywood)

    Getting all the long song titles out of the way first...

    Oh fuck, these are so tough.

    In a lot of ways, this is the Counting Crows record that means the most to me. I've come to love August more, but Hard Candy is the album that really solidified me as a die hard Counting Crows fan. I wrote about it last year for Modern Vinyl's Thanksgiving feature: Thanksspinning: Counting Crows — Hard Candy

    If I Could Give All My Love
    Carriage
    Up All Night (Frankie Miller Goes to Hollywood)

    "If I Could Give All My Love" and "Up All Night" are both top 10 Counting Crows songs for me. "Up All Night" is probably top five. I really love "Black and Blue" and "Good Time," so voting against them is tough. Especially "Black and Blue," since I'm worried it won't get any votes. Could have really gone either way on "Carriage" vs "Why Should You Come When I Call," but I didn't want "Carriage" to go voteless. It's such a lovely, unique song in their catalog.

    All the long song titles win, and “Black and Blue” becomes our second song to go without a single vote!

    Good Time - 3

    Why Should You Come When I Call? - 5
