Kid Rock feat. Sheryl Crow – “Picture” – (2001)

Statistically, this is Sheryl Crow’s second most-successful single in the U.S. Betcha didn’t know that. It was a top five hit on the Hot 100 – Kid Rock’s highest charting single ever. It’s a country rock duet that went mainstream – even flying up the Adult Contemporary chart. It was co-written by both performers and Rock also did a more country version with Allison Moorer. Yes, this song technically has “featuring” and not “and” in the artist line but it’s about as close to a duet in the classical definition as the 2000s has given us.

#10 – Sheryl Crow – “Tomorrow Never Dies” – (1997)

Tomorrow Never Dies was a Bond movie I really liked, even though it would probably come in mid-pack on most people’s lists. The theme song wasn’t bad either – it was solid pop rock without any annoying orchestral interference. Sheryl Crow was pretty big at the time and I think her voice suits the song quite well. It was actually nominated for Best Original Song at the Golden Globes and the Grammys… but was up against Celine Dion and all that Titanic madness.

#109 – Sheryl Crow – “Everyday Is A Winding Road” – (1996)

This was a tough one – a really, really tough one. “If It Makes You Happy” and “A Change Would Do You Good” are both awesome songs in their own right. I mean, Sheryl Crow’s self-titled album rocks. “I used to ride with a vending machine repairman/he said he’s been down this road more than twice/He was high on intellectualism/I’ve never been there but the brochure looks nice…” is a nice way to begin a song and the music is great as well. “If It Makes You Happy” features some great, screaming vocals, and “A Change Would Do You Good” has that nice solid guitar sound. Say what you want about Sheryl Crow’s music in recent years – but this album is quite good. In 1998 she released The Globe Sessions which contains the superb “My Favorite Mistake” – if you can’t make it through that entire song, at least enjoy the fantastic beginning.

#182 – Sheryl Crow – “All I Wanna Do” – (1993)

“Until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard…” Oh, and the way this song progresses from chorus to verse is just awesome. Also from Tuesday Night Music Club, check out the differently paced “Strong Enough.” On second thought, this song should probably be in the top 25…
