Rock Rewind: Sheryl Crow “All I Wanna Do”

While Sheryl Crow is considered a roots-rock icon in most circles today, back in early 1990s she was a virtual unknown, teaching music in Fenton, Missouri, and singing in television jingles (including TV spots for McDonald’s and Toyota). She was slated to release a self-titled debut album in 1992, but the label scrapped the project.

Then came the Tuesday Music Club, a loose-knit collective of songwriter-musicians that Crow hooked up with while dating the late Kevin Gilbert. This musical community eventually formed the backdrop for her real debut album, aptly titled Tuesday Night Music Club, propelling her to international stardom. The album went on to spend 100 weeks on the Billboard 200.

“All I Wanna Do” (video embedded below) was Crow’s breakout hit from the record, its nonchalant attitude and bluesy sound taking over the radio airwaves. It remains her top performing single to date, achieving Gold record status and topping the US charts. Enjoy!

About the Author

on MUSIC IS MY OXYGEN WEEKLY.

Tim Ferrar's interest in pop and rock started as a child, listening to Top-40 radio for hours on end while playing air guitar in his bedroom. Eventually air guitar led to electric guitar, and Tim began playing in bands and writing his own songs. With an admitted weakness for "a great hook or a great guitar riff," Tim's musical tastes are broad and varied, ranging from Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga on the pop side to Bon Jovi and Foo Fighters on the rock side- making him the ideal guy to cover our Rock and Pop categories. By day, Tim is a mild-mannered accountant in Chicago. By night, he rocks out on electric guitar in a cover band in various clubs around town- much to the surprise of some of his clients.
