BERKELEY, CA Friday Nov.12.2004 / -- Counting Crows have scored a big hit with "Accidentally in Love" from the movie, "Shrek." But when lead singer Adam Duritz sat down to write the song, he wasn't seeing green. Instead of writing about everyone's favorite ogre, Duritz says he wrote about his own feelings.

Duritz told, "They were very clear about not writing a song about Shrek. Jeffrey Katzenberg sat me down and said, 'Look, do not writing a song about a bunch of cartoons. We don't think of them as cartoons, we think of them as people and this is a real situation that they're in, aside from the large greenness. But the best thing to do is write a song about yourself, write a song about how you feel and hopefully we can work it into the movie.' So I did."
