Segue Fever: Stuck in the Middle with Sheryl Crow

The death of Gerry Rafferty last week meant that “Stuck in the Middle with You” was being played all over the place. I always loved that song, and like everyone else, Reservoir Dogs changed my relationship with it forever.

Now it’s an iconic recording — but what better to cleanse the palate of torture and ear slicing than the song’s groovy younger cousin, Sheryl Crow’s “All I Wanna Do?”

The hand claps, the bass line, and most of all, the pedal steel guitar… it’s not just similar, it’s an homage.

  1. “Homage”

    That’s one way to call it…

  2. Homage sounds so much nicer than ripoff.

  3. Those eyes, that hair, those teeth…. Wow.

    (Sheryl, not Gerry)

  4. Sheyrl Crow did many versions of All i wanna do:

    spoken


    acoustic alternate


    on stool


    live 2003

    each version has a particular and distinctive vibe.
