Since recurring words in Brian's songwriting are a popular topic at the moment, I made a word cloud using all of the lyrics from The Gaslight Anthem, The Horrible Crowes, and his solo music. Enjoy: https://i.imgur.com/qNPReAw.jpg

Observations: As expected, words like "blood," "radio," and "Mary" show up, but it seems like the most used words are normal ones like "just," "night," and "like." Also, I thought it was funny that "Sha-la-la" showed up on it too.

That's pretty cool....nicely done. The best is definitely "Sha-la-la"

It'll be interesting to compare this to the new album.

I like the "cause young nights" in there. That may be a lyric in itself.

How does one go about making a word cloud? I could have some fun with this...

Cool. I was planning on making something like this myself

Observations:
- I'm surprised 'radio' isn't bigger.
- Odd how they list capitalised and non-capitalised words separately (big 'now' towards the bottom-right, and smaller 'Now' fifth left on the bottom row)

Wait, why is sha-la-la there and not Maria? There's also definitely more instances of Maria than Mary...

My guess it goes by how many times it's said, not how many songs have it. I mean in one chorus alone oh sha la la is said 4x in here comes my man. So, yes, there are more songs that have the name Maria, but he may only say it once or twice. Where as here comes my man it's like 16(? if I'm remembering the song right.)
