Wildflower

I've really, really, really been digging Sheryl Crow's cd Wildflower since I 'stole' it from a friend while I was in the States.

I've always been a big fan of Sheryl Crow even before I knew I was a big fan of Sheryl Crow. I distinctly remember shuffling through my cds at some point and realizing that I had all of her albums to date then concluding that, regardless of who I said my favorite bands were, actually she should be on the list.

I think I probably heard the songs "My Man" and "If it Makes You Happy" first, and since I was a fairly angsty teenager (who wasn't?) I desperately needed to listen to them over and over again until they were permanently ingrained in my memory. So I got 'Sheryl Crow', a boyfriend gave me 'Tuesday Night Blues Club', and 'The Globe Sessions' (with 'Anything But Down') was purchased because of a certain ex-boyfriend.

But she's one of those artists that I can pick a song for any mood, no matter how I'm feeling. She's also one of the few artists that, if they come on when I'm in the wrong mood, it just makes it worse. There's a song on there for almost every single event in my life thus far. Her music makes me happy, it makes me sad, it makes me angry about the right things, it helps me remember and it helps me move on. So in case she ever asks my opinion? I think she has more than succeeded as an artist.
