Throwback Thursday ‘Soak Up The Sun’ by Sheryl Crow (2002)
I'm trying to be the change I want to see in the world! Bring on the sun! No more rain!
"Soak Up The Sun" was the first single off of Sheryl Crow's album, C'mon C'mon.
Fun fact: Liz Phair is singing backing vocals on this track.
In the Summer of 2002, you could not escape this song!
The music video was shot in Oahu, Hawaii. Not a bad day at the office, am I right?
"Soak Up The Sun" went to #1 on the Billboard Adult Top 40 chart, Adult Alternative chart, and Dance Club songs chart. This was the first and only time Sheryl Crow had topped a dance songs chart!
"Soak Up The Sun" peaked at #17 on Billboard Hot 100 and #5 on the Adult Contemporary chart.
On the 2002 year-end chart, "Soak Up The Sun" was at #35.
I was 16 the Summer of 2002, which meant I had my first job. I worked at Subway and I remember hearing this song all the time at work!
Isn't it weird the memories we associate with certain songs?
