Counting Crows

Counting Crows took their name from an old English divina­tion rhyme, comparing the pointlessness of life with the act of counting crows. The poem was quoted in one of vocalist Adam Duritz’s girlfriend Mary-Louise Parker’s films Signs Of Life (1989), directed by John David Coles. Actually, the original poem (which is an old English folk poem) refers to counting magpies rather than crows (it was also adapted in the title song of ’70s UK children’s TV series Magpie), and is supposed to tell the future of someone who sees a flock of magpies, depending on how many birds make up the flock: One for sorrow, two for mirth,Three for a wedding, four for a birth, Five for silver, six for gold, Seven for a secret not to be told, Eight for heaven, nine for hell, And ten for the devil's own sel'. (Trad.)
