    My InterpretationThis is one of my favourite love songs ever and to me it means exactly what it says - he fell in love with someone who once was just a face in a crowd, perhaps someone who came to watch them play.

    'A Face in the crowd' was released in 1989, Full Moon Fever... And it makes me wonder if he had already fallen in love with Dana by then or whether he accidentally predicted his future.

    This, from Wikipedia:
    "His first marriage, to Jane Benyo, lasted 22 years. He spent most of those years working, on the road or in the studio. They have two daughters. Adria is a film director and AnnaKim Violette an artist. Since 2001 he has been married to Dana York, whom he first met years earlier when she came to one of his concerts. They have a son named Dylan."
