Topic 87 of 100: Sheryl Crow

Sun, May 19, 2002 (06:24) | Paul Terry Walhus (terry)
From the official site:

of Sheryl Crow has long reflected the musical passions that inspired her back when she was growing up in Kennett, MO. From her breakthrough debut Tuesday Night Music Club (1994) to the self-titled Sheryl Crow (1996) and her most recent studio album The Globe Sessions (1998), Crow has continued to explore her passions and define her distinctive voice, staking her fertile turf as a singer-songwriter. Now with her latest shining gem, C'mon, C'mon, Crow has turned up the volume and loosened the mood to make the direct rock & roll album that made her want to make music in the first place.
C'mon, C'mon is an instant charmer of a rock album - an immediate road trip classic. For Crow the making of the album was a long, hard road. Indeed, even coming up with an appropriate title for the album seemed to take forever. "The original album title was going to be Songs from the Waiting Room because all the way through the process of making this record that title had a lot of meaning for me," says Crow. "But that title was in conflict with the spirit of the record."

Crow explains that she yearned to make an album "in the flavor of '70s and '80s classic rock - rock songs that were crafted, that you could sing; songs that were like the soundtrack to your summer - songs that were really committed to rock." And so it was that Crow found herself with a kick-ass album and no title to match. At the eleventh hour she speedily wrote and recorded the song "C'mon, C'mon" - a standout, crunchy rocker featuring Crow's longtime friend Stevie Nicks. "It just seemed to evoke the feeling of the rest of the record," Crow explains. And C'mon, C'mon is definitely an album with lots of feeling.

"Abilene"
C'Mon, C'Mon
Written by Sheryl Crow and Jeff Trott

Can't you see I'm holding your flag
The one that you left on the ground
Well is the world too heavy for you
If it makes you feel better, I'll carry it, too
No one's gonna stand in your light
Impressions are easy to fight
But until you turn to me and say
You don't need anyone to carry the weight, I will stay

Abilene
Bring it on home to me
Abilene
Isn't it good to be free

Can't you see I'm earing your shirt
The one with the heart on the sleeve
Everyone can see you've been hurt
But honey don't give up on me
When you gonna make up your mind
When you gonna get out of bed
Well everyday you're gonna find
Broken promises are no worse than words never said

Abilene
Bring it on home to me
Abilene
Isn't it good to be free

Then you want someone to come along and save the day
Well you make it much too hard

Abilene
Bring it on home to me
Abilene
Isn't it good to be free

And the awesome song:

"Everyday is a Winding Road"
Sheryl Crow
Written by Sheryl Crow, Jeff Trott, & Brian MacLeod

I hitched a ride with a vending machine repair man
He says he's been down this road more than twice
He was high on intellectualism
I've never been there but the brochure looks nice
Jump in, let's go
Lay back, enjoy the show
Everybody gets high, everybody gets low,
These are the days when anything goes

Everyday is a winding road
I get a little bit closer
Everyday is a faded sign
I get a little bit closer to feeling fine

He's got a daughter he calls Easter
She was born on a Tuesday night
I'm just wondering why I feel so all alone
Why I'm a stranger in my own life
Jump in, let's go
Lay back, enjoy the show
Everybody gets high, everybody gets low
These are the days when anything goes

Everyday is a winding road
I get a little bit closer
Everyday is a faded sign
I get a little bit closer to feeling fine

I've been living in a sea of anarchy
I've been living on coffee and nicotine
I've been wondering if all the thing I've seen
Were ever real, were ever really happening

Everyday is a winding road
I get a little bit closer
Everyday is a faded sign
I get a little bit closer to feeling fine

A little snippet from Have Some Fun

All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
Until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard

I'm gonna soak up the sun
I'm gonna tell everyone
To lighten up (I'm gonna tell 'em that)
I've got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame
I'm looking up
I'm gonna soak up the sun
I'm gonna soak up the sun

That would be Kendall's favorite song! She bends at the knees and tries to snap her fingers after just a few notes!
BTW, Paul, looks like you've got it bad for Ms. Crow... I just noticed her new topic over in babes! *grin*

I should have linked the two topics, but then this one's about her music and the other one's about her hotness. grin deserved.
