Undiscovered: Five Sheryl Crow Songs We Think You’ll Love

Sheryl Crow has been gracing the music scene for decades now. The nine-time Grammy award winner recently kicked off a few Chris Stapleton shows and celebrated her release Live From The Ryman this past summer. Today she is celebrating her 60th birthday. In honor of another year around the sun, here are our favorite undiscovered Sheryl Crow songs.

1. “Drunk With The Thought of You”

“Drunk With The Thought of You,” written by Crow exclusively, confesses the cravings of wholesomeness and the high of a new flame. It’s honeycombed with influences from Crow’s earliest records even though it came out on the singer-songwriter’s 2008 album Detours. 

2. “Hard To Make A Stand”

“Hard To Make A Stand” is the third single off of Crow’s self-titled record that also housed the single “If It Makes You Happy.” The song was only released as a single in Europe, Japan, Canada, and South Africa. A lot of stigma centers on this composition as it depicts controversial subjects such as abortion. Written by Crow, Bill Bottrell, Todd Wolfe, R.S Bryan, the song blends a perfect harmony of indie rock pulls and newfangled alternative makings.

“My friend, O’ Lawdy / Went to take care of her own body / She got shot down in the road / She looked up before she went / Said, “This isn’t really what I meant” / And the Daily News said, “Two with one stone” / And I say “Hey there, Miscreation, bring a flower, time is wastin'” / And it’s hard to make a stand / And it’s hard to make a stand / Oh it’s hard to make a stand / You know it’s hard to make a stand / Yes it is.”
