    I Dream of Michelangelo – Counting Crows (references Angels of the Silences by the same band.)

    “I’m Through” and “C’mon” (both by Guster) have the same music (in different keys) but different lyrics.

    Mr. Jones – Counting Crows (references Bob Dylan’s “Ballad of a Thin Man.” This is speculation that Adam denies, but an interesting connection anyway since Adam says “I wanna be Bob Dylan” in the song.)
