Films About Ghosts (The Best of...) is a greatest hits album by the popular alternative rock band Counting Crows. It was released by Geffen Records on November 25, 2003. The album contains songs from all of their studio albums. The album takes its name from a line in "Mrs. Potter's Lullaby": "If dreams are like movies, then memories are films about ghosts."
Later versions of this disc include "Accidentally in Love", the Crows' hit single from the May 2004 hit movie Shrek 2. The Dutch version of this album includes a new version of "Holiday in Spain", recorded as a duet with Dutch band Bløf. The single, in English and Dutch, went number one in the Netherlands, as did the album after the success of the single.
The original English version contained the song "Blues Run the Game", a cover of a Jackson C. Frank song. The South American version contained the song "4 White Stallions" (Live from Amsterdam) and Enhanced CD data.
This album was released twice in Australia, the second release containing a DVD of live performances. A version with a second disc containing the Music-Video-Edited versions of "American Girls", "Mrs. Potter's Lullaby", "Angels of the Silences", "Round Here", "Daylight Fading", "A Long December" and "Mr. Jones" was also released in the United Kingdom.
