10 years of the Crow-- so many excellent songs!!!,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Very Best Of Sheryl Crow (Audio CD)
Sheryl Crow is indeed unique, she sings, she writes and she produces all her own songs, how many artists can say that?
This album charts 10 years of excellent music, 17 tracks covering every emotion you could ever imagine-
*ULTIMATE HAPPINESS- soak up the sun, all i wanna do.
*ANGER- if it makes you happy.
*SADNESS- home. hurt- the first cut is the deepest.
*UPBEAT- winding road, a change
*LOSS- my favourite mistake
There are also 3 new songs on this album, light in your eyes, a nod to george harrison, picture, a song that dominated the american charts for 6 months, lets get free, sheryls protest song against the war in iraq. Only the latter falls below the standard of the rest. light in your eyes is worthy of a grammy!
These are all the hits, plus some gems that are less well known such as leaving las vegas, there goes the neighbourhood and my favourite mistake. And yes there are some songs that maybe should have been included, but an album is only 80 mins long, if you wanted the definitive greatest hits you would need 3 or 4 albums
this is an all round, excellent, amazing collection of songs, and 20 million people have bought sheryl's songs over the last 10 years, so they cant be wrong! She has won 9 grammy awards, a brit award and numerous other awards from all over the world, so the world knowS how good she is! let the crow into your life, you wont be disappointed!!!
go get it!
