Sheryl Crow- The Globe Sessions / C’mon, C’mon: Top 10 / Top 40 Singles in US and UK



Sheryl Crow- The Globe Sessions
United States- Sheryl Crow has returned in late 1998 with the album “The Globe Sessions” which followed the success of “Tuesday Night Music Club” and “Sheryl Crow”. The album has gone to number 5 in the country with 2x platinum certifications by RIAA. Three songs were released as a single but nothing went to top 10. She at least scored a top 40 hit with the one listed below:
My Favorite Mistake- #20
Despite just a single charted inside the top 40 with “My Favorite Mistake”, Sheryl Crow reached number 49 with “Anything But Down”.

United Kingdom- Sheryl Crow has achieved something even bigger with her album “The Globe Sessions” in United Kingdom. The album has gone to number 2, higher than the number 8 album “Tuesday Night Music Club” and the number 5 “Sheryl Crow”. “The Globe Sessions” went platinum by BPI. The album has released three singles with the following has gone to the top 10:
My Favorite Mistake- #9
It’s just “My Favorite Mistake” had went to the top 10, but the album had two top 40 hits with the songs:
There Goes the Neighborhood- #19
Anything but Down- #19
Both songs “There Goes the Neighborhood” and “Anything but Down” went not just inside the top 40, rather at the top 20 and number 19.

Sheryl Crow- C’mon, C’mon
United States- After years, Sheryl Crow came back with this album “C’mon, C’mon”. It suddenly became her highest peaking album in the US when it settled at number 2 with 2x platinum RIAA certifications. No single went to top 10 too, but had a top 40 hit in this song:
Soak Up the Sun- #17
The song “Soak Up the Sun” was the biggest hit from the album peaking at number 17. Another single charted which was “Steve McQueen”, but only peaked at number 88.

United Kingdom- Sheryl Crow scored her second number 2 album in the UK with “C’mon, C’mon” which was next “The Globe Sessions”. However, for the first time, she never had a top 10 hit from her album. It had top 40 hit with:
Soak Up the Sun- #16
So, “Soak Up the Sun” peaked a little higher in UK than US at number 16. The second single “Steve McQueen” only peaked at number 44.

I had chosen “Soak Up the Sun” to share not just being her biggest hit for “C’mon, C’mon”, rather it sounds like a carefree song, and a good song to play during summer.

Sheryl Crow- Sheryl Crow: Top 10 / 40 Singles in US and UK

Sheryl Crow- Sheryl Crow
United States- After the very successful album “Tuesday Night Music Club”, Sheryl Crow returned in 1996 with her self-titled album. The record has been able to reach number 6 in United States and received a certification of 3x platinum from RIAA. It has sold lower than her previous album though. It released a number of singles and achieved this top 10 hit:
If It Makes You Happy- #10
Sheryl Crow achieved a top 10 hit from the album with “If It Makes You Happy”. It became her third top 10 in the singles chart after two top 10 hits from “Tuesday Night Music Club”. She had another top 40 hit with:
Everyday Is a Winding Road- #11
“Everyday Is a Winding Road” feel short to reach the top 10 when it only peaked at number 11. Still, it was one of her big hits in United States.

United Kingdom- Sheryl Crow did well in United Kingdom with her self-titled second album. It even did well with “Tuesday Night Club”- which went to number 7- as “Sheryl Crow” album peaked at number 5. This album even sold more when it was certified by BPI with 3x platinum. It shows it’s not the same thing happened with this album in United Stated. The album even scored two top 10 singles as listed below:
If It Makes You Happy- #9
A Change Would Do You Good- #8
Compared to her previous album, this one scored two while the previous only had one top 10 hit. “A Change Would Do You Good” was the biggest hit from the album when it peaked at number 8 and “If It Makes You Happy” at number 9. Three more singles charted and all of the went to top 40 with these songs:
Everyday Is a Winding Road- #12
Hard to Make a Stand- #22
Home- #25
The album had a total of five singles released and obviously, all of those songs went to top 40.

“If It Makes You Happy” was Sheryl Crow’s biggest single in United States, while it was second in United Kingdom. It can still be considered her biggest hit from the album and I would be sharing that song below:

Sheryl Crow- Tuesday Night Music Club: Top 10 Singles in US and UK / Memorable Lines of a Song

Sheryl Crow- Tuesday Night Music Club
United States- Sheryl Crow did a great job off her great album “Tuesday Night Music Club”. The album got 7x platinum award from RIAA, which is a testament that the album is hugely successful. It had successful singles too for reaching the top 10, but let’s see which songs are those:
All I Wanna Do- #2
Strong Enough- #5
So, Sheryl Crow scored at least two hit singles from the album to able chart the top 10. It started out with the upbeat pop song “All I Wanna Do” at number 2. It was succeeded by the acoustic track “Strong Enough” at number 5 position. She actually had two singles which charted too with the first song “Leaving Last Vegas” at number 60, and the number 36 song “Can’t Cry Anymore”.

United Kingdom- Sheryl Crow also had milestone with “Tuesday Night Music Club” in United Kingdom as well. The award of 2x platinum by RIAA is a proof. She even had six singles to chart in the country. But the question is, which made it to the upper 10? Look below:
All I Wanna Do- #4
Sheryl Crow may had six songs to chart, she at least scored one single to reach the top 10 with the number 4 hit track “All I Wanna Do”. She also had a number 24 hit with “Run Baby Run”. While her songs “Strong Enough” and “Can’t Cry Anymore” both peaked at number 33. She reached number 66 with “Leaving Las Vegas”.

Sheryl Crow had two official big hits from the LP, namely “All I Wanna Do” and “Strong Enough”. But her most successful album from “Tuesday Night Music Club” was “All I Wanna Do”. I also love the song of its fun feel it can give while listening to it.

All I Wanna Do (Chorus)
All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I’m not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I’m not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
Until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard

Trends and Cliches in Mainstream Music (1995-1999)

In music, there are different kinds of styles that are often followed by other artists. As it becomes a trend, new artist will come out in the same genre or style, or even established artists follow suit.

From 1995-1999, there are a lot changes in mainstream music world. Pop music has been dominating the era as new artists came out and putting those established artists behind. Here are some of the trends and cliches from 1995 to 1999.

Female rockers
In 1995, Canadian singer Alanis Morissette dominated the record sales off her hit album “Jagged Little Pill”. With her success, other female artists doing pop/rock released some records. Sheryl Crow may had success with her debut album, but it was just a light album. Her second album sounded edgier apparently in her song “If It Makes You Happy”. On late 1997, Natalie Imbruglia released her first album “Left Off the Middle, and her 1998 single “Big Mistake” sounds like an Alanis song.

Boybands
Different boybands existed like mushrooms from 1995-1999. Some bands though, failed to attain success. The most popular boyband this era was Backstreet Boys, while in Europe and Asia, Boyzone and others, did well too. In 1999, Irish boyband Westlife scored 3 UK number one hits which led to further successes. NSYNC achieved success in 1999 especially in US.

Girl Power phrase / Girl groups
British girl pop group Spice Girls became the most relevant artist during this era which their success was compared to The Beatles. However, the group took hiatus too early after Geri bidded goodbye. Girl power remains a relevant phrase until now. Girl groups though became a trend too. We heard and seen another UK girl group All Saints. Despite their edgy sound, they followed the Spice Girls as the second top girl group at that time, eventhough the Spice’s success was miles apart from them. Other girl groups who had short success were She Moves, Solid Harmonie, etc.

Movie Soundtrack Hits
Songs from a motion picture has become a trend in 1998 after Celine Dion’s hit from Titanic, “My Heart Will Go On”. Other soundtrack hits whicg followed suit were Goo Goo Dolls’ “Iris” from “City of Angels”, Marc Anthony and Tina Arena “I Want to Spend My Lifetime Loving You”, Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing”, which became second most successful soundtrack in 1999.

Teen female stars
In 1999, we saw the success of Britney Spears from her album and singles. She eventually became one of the biggest female artist of all-time. After her success, Christina Aguilera topped the charts worldwide too. Then we saw the birth in music of Jessica Simpson and Mandy Moore.

Latin music
Latin music became a trend again as we saw Ricky Martin climbs the chart in 1998, and popularity heightened in 1999 with his first English album. We also the success of Jennifer Lopez, Enrique Iglesias and Marc Anthony. All of these three artists achieved success with millions of records sold.

Top Solo Female rockers

Rock music was often dominated by men as they intent to create fan base with male listeners. But it doesn’t mean rock music was listened by mostly men as there are lots of female fans of rock music too. As a result, there are female rockers who existed and they generated fans either male or female as their demographics.

I decided to create a list of these female rockers as solo artists who succeeded in the genre. Here are the top five list I made:

5. Michelle Branch- Her popularity came in late 2001 due to her hit top 15 hit “Everywhere” followed by more successful ” All You Wanted” and another top 40 hit in the US. Her 2 albums were platinum. Her music generated fans either young or adults. Teenagers loved her as she’s a teen at that time. While her sound and lyrics has more maturity.

4. Sheryl Crow- I loved her old song “Strong Enough” which was a big hit at that time, as well as “All I Wanna Do”. Her sound though was liek country rock. Her sound went harder through “If It Makes You Happy”, which is similar to Alanis Morrisette, who is extremely popularat that time. Her recent sound is lighter rock.

3. Avril Lavigne- She debuted with Michelle Branch as the top young female rocker, which Avril’s entry took the spotlight. Avril is more on teenage rock though. Her debut album “Let Go” scored big hits and meteoric number sales. She is eventually dubbed as the ‘pop rock princess’ and scored top ten albums.

2. P!nk- She may started as pop and R&B singer but decided to follow her heart and transferred to rock music via “Don’t Let Me Get Me”. She became more popular, even until now, she consistently sells millions of records and top ten hit songs. Though, her music was both pop and rock.

1. Alanis Morrisette- She may only had two officially big hit albums which “Jagged Little Pill” is the biggest selling album of its genre, Alanis remains the legend and the one who created the formula of rock in solo female rock musicians. You can hear the touch of Alanis in the music P!nk and Avril Lavigne. Her recent releases may not be successful as her first two international releases but she’s still remembered as an icon for many female rock musicians.
