    Maybe 'crimson' is love, and 'clover' is luck.

    He thinks he could love her, but you never know, so in the end it's all about luck.

    Just a guess.

    Just to add to what I wrote above this. I just bought TJ&S anthology earlier today and in the booklet Tommy James explains that when he was young he liked to express himself using colours, and red and green happened to be his 2 favourite colours. Apparently there is no sexual meaning to this song.

    God...I'd forgotten all about this song until I saw the film Monster. What a perfect song for the first/only real love scene of the movie.

    This explanation occured to me while listening to the local oldies station. I believe this is a song about young love, and the first time. In the clover(romantic setting?), and her loss of virginity, hence the crimson. Maybe I've always misheard the line "my mind's such a sweet thing" as "my my such a sweet thing", but it still makes sense to me .

    quote-

    To me, this song's about a stoner's love of chronic. Crimson is the fire and clover is the weed. "Beautiful feeling" = being high....

    only a burner would think this. yes this may be about a stoner in the sixties who sees a girl while high on weed... whatever, but to me this song has nothing to do with drug sh**

    Crimson- what colour is a heart seen as? any shade of red? clover meaning luck..... me and meh ex boyfriend always try to decypher songs and we think this one means that "i may be able to get her heart (crimson) if i am lucky (clover)" i am sure weed is an inspiration. but like everyone we have asked many people what they think INCLUDING people from the sixties era and they all say it is plausible and REALLY undoubted...

    Here's what I think. I'm not completely sure about the symbolism of "Crimson & Clover", but the meaning of this song isn't about drugs. Read the lyrics people! Although, perhaps the singer is comparing the feeling of love to the feeling of being "high". Crimson and Clover could mean 'complementary', ya know? Because aren't red and green complementary colors (anyone who has taken art classes?)?? I think the singer is trying to say he's fallen in love at first sight ("Now, I don't hardly know her, but I think I could love her."), and if she gave him the chance ("Well if she come walkin' over"), he could show her that they're perfect for each other ("Now I've been waitin' to show her crimson & clover."); they complement each other.

    I love this song. Though I do admit, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts have done a bang up job with their cover.

    It's a hopeful outlook that with a bit of love (crimson) and luck (clover, the clover leaf depicts this), the singer has a good chance of capturing the heart of the girl (that he isn't close to).

    The cover art for this song says it all :)

    Thank you Tommy James and the Shondells for coming up with this awesome tune that I can't stop playing!

    my friend who told me to listen to the song said that the line 'crimson & clover' is what's going on inside the guy's head. he's thinking about how his last name would sound so good with his girlfriend's, like 'crimson (dude) and clover (girl)'. hope that helps

    Heather Manson from Los Angeles Ca

    Christmas is over. Sounds like new love. I like the ecco effect. Could be longer. I ran out of ideas.

    Kayla from Dallas

    This song is actually about a beautiful girl with red hair and green eyes, get it?

    George from Vancouver, Canada

    I saw it as an ode to a crush -- clover -- fresh & lush. . . crimson -- sweet red lips. . .

    Seventhmist from 7th Heaven

    My brother and I always laughed at the words after 2:25 into it, because we thought it sounded like he was drowning.

    Barry from Sauquoit, Ny

    On February 1st 1969, Tommy James & the Shondells performed "Crimson and Clover" on the ABC-TV Saturday afternoon program 'Happening '68'...

    At the time the song was in its first of two weeks at #1 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart {See next posted}...

    On the same 'Happenin'' show the group also performed "Do Something to Me", it preceded "Crimson & Clover" on the Top 100, and it reached #38 {for 2 weeks} on November 17th, 1968 and spent 9 weeks on the chart.

    Barry from Sauquoit, Ny

    On January 26th 1969, Tommy James and the Shondells performed "Crimson and Clover" on the CBS-TV program 'The Ed Sullivan Show'

    And on that very same it day it peaked at #1 (for 2 weeks) on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; it had entered the chart on December 8th, 1968 and spent 16 weeks on the Top 100 (and for 11 of those 16 weeks it was on the Top 10)...

    It spent four weeks at #2; one week before hitting #1 and then three weeks after "Everyday People" by Sly and the Family Stone bumped it out of the top spot...

    Between 1966 and 1970 the group had nineteen Top 100 records; with seven making the Top 10 and two reaching #1 (the other #1 was "Hanky Panky" for 2 weeks in 1966).

    Crimson from Christchurch, New Zealand

    Huh, in my whole 18 years I have never thought until now to find out the meaning of the song that my twin sister and I are named after. As far as I knew it was the first record she had ever bought. Reading all the comments above makes me wonder if she had a deeper meaning behind calling us these names, seeing as she was very much a hippy herself. Haha thanks mum.

    Camille from Toronto, Oh

    While the ending of this song's 'heavily processed vocals'-- the shaky vibrato of "Criiimmssonn anndd Clllooovaahhh, oover and oover"--is what everyone seems to remember, it's the opening word: "Aahhhhh..." that gets the whole thing going. It is a sigh of satisfaction and contentment, and it makes you want to listen to the whole rest of the song.

    Laura from El Paso, Tx

    I have to say that when Joan Jett sings this song, for me it is impossible to not feel it takes on a whole new meaning. She is singing about "her" and how she wants crimson and clover over and over................not trying to give the song a perverted meaning but that is how it comes across when Joan Jett performs it.

    Alan from Hawthorne , Nj

    I was in 8th grade when I first heard crimson and clover. It just resonated with me the same way the song resonated over my transistor radio....Over and over....I had to buy the 45 and I would just listen & stare at the orange and yellow label spinning....hypnotizing....magn

    etizing....NO! It wasn't about drugs for me......... It was about Samantha and being with my friendsThings were changing. I was changing. And I just didn't get it all ....YET!

    Matthew from Mayville, Ny

    Prince's take on this song brought it back to life. As with all his work... he actually improved the song.. which is hard to do on a classic. But his guitar kicks butt in his version. Check it out on youtube if you haven't heard it. Peace.

    Rex from Heart Of America, In

    It really surprises me that so few people have this right. And I do not not doubt that Tommy James would have (originally and forever) claimed that he did not intend any specific meaning by the words crimson and clover. Just two favorite words. I comletely believe him that he publicly thought that. Especially back then, and really... even now... it's almost a little bit embarrassing to (have to) explain something that is so explicitly sexual. Tommy James is a guy, like every guy who ever loved this song, and only one part of his body becomes crimson - - and is irresistibly drawn to the part of a girl's body that exactly ressembles the delicate pinkish-lavender clover in its respledent bloom - - the female flower. Over and over, over and over. You need not be ashamed if you never consciously realized that this is why you love this song so much. But without a doubt, Crimson and Clover is about the fulfillment of the most basic of human urges, and how awesomely good it makes you feel. Just like this song.
