Mr. Jones (29/365)

Mr. Jones - Counting Crows: The day I heard Mr. Jones I bought the CD. Reading the liner notes, I pleasantly discovered T-Bone Burnett produced it. I slapped myself on my forehead, no wonder I loved the sound. And actually I don't care if "Mr. Jones" is really Adam's penis.

I want to be Bob Dylan.
Mr. Jones wishes he was someone
just a little more funky.

OK, I laughed. (Hey Indigo: Penis!)

I read some where that Mr. Jones is one of those names or topics that comes up all the time in music. I guess Bob Dylan wrote a song about or featuring a Mr. Jones and it's taken off from there. There are like 10 songs that feature a Mr. Jones. Anyway, so there is a chance that Mr. Jones is Dylan's Mr. Jones. I've also heard that Mr. Jones was a bum that Adam used to drink with... so who knows.

I do love the line: "we all wanta be big stars"

Well actually I think Mr. Jones refers to his childhood friend Marty Jones, but I just wanted to see Indigo's reaction to the word penis.
