Bedtime Music: Sheryl Crow - All I Wanna Do

Tonight I'm featuring Sheryl Crow's hit, All I Wanna Do, off of her 1994 album, Tuesday Night Music Club. The song earned Crow the 1995 Grammy Awards for Record of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. The lyrics are based on the poem "Fun," by Wyn Cooper. A book of Cooper's poetry, "The Country of Here Below," had been purchased by Crow's producer, Bill Botrell, and the resulting success of the song brought a considerable amount of royalties and exposure to Cooper. The line "This ain't no disco" is a reference to the Talking Heads' song, Life During Wartime.

The below video is from Crow's February 14th performance at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.
