Music: Sheryl Crow

Sheryl Crow

Sheryl Crow (February 11, 1962-) is an American musician who started out writing jingles and singing backup for Michael Jackson during the 1988 "Bad World Tour" before becoming a successful recording artist on her own, winning several Grammys over the length of her career. She claims her inspiration doesn't root from any particular genre, but her music usually has elements of rock, folk, hip hop, country, and pop.

She had two self-titled albums; the first was scrapped, and the second premiered after her short run with the band Tuesday Music Club.

She also sang the title song for the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies.

All I wanna do is list some tropes:

  • Darker and Edgier: The Globe Sessions is a very introspective and personal album written while Crow was suffering from depression and the fallout from a failed relationship
  • Does Not Like Shoes: She's frequently barefoot in videos and photos.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: As a backup vocalist for Michael Jackson.
  • Epic Rocking: "The Difficult Kind" and "Crash and Burn" on The Globe Sessions are both over six minutes long. So are "Our Love is Fading" and "Roses in the Moonlight" on 100 Miles From Memphis.
  • Lighter and Softer: C'mon C'mon, the studio album released after The Globe Sessions is considerably lighter and more upbeat. Compare "My Favorite Mistake" with "Soak Up The Sun".
  • New Sound Album: She does this to a degree with every one.
  • Surreal Music Video: "If It Makes You Happy".
