It can be tough to keep up with all of the latest and most notable ‘quarantine’ performances that have flooded the internet in the weeks since the COVID-19 pandemic took over — but the recent entry from Sheryl Crow may be one of the most entertaining yet.

“All I Wanna Do,” Crow’s breakout single from her 1993 debut album Tuesday Night Music Club, translates especially well in this format.


The video, filmed by the singer/songwriter and her band mates from their respective homes and featuring two mysterious individuals in animal masks (presumably Crow’s two sons), accomplishes precisely what the song’s refrain, All I wanna do is have some fun, demands.

Crow’s backing band — note that that is not actually Mark Hamill playing bass:

Fred Eltringham: drums & percussion
Audley Freed – guitar (Telecaster)
Joshua Grange – lap steel guitar
Jen Gunderman – accordion & backing vocals
Robert Kearns – bass & backing vocals
Peter Stroud – acoustic guitar

Sherl Crow and her band mates have continued posting quarantine performance clips on social media throughout this whole ordeal, and each one is a treat.

Here’s “There Goes the Neighborhood,” from 1998’s The Globe Sessions:

And “Out of Our Heads,” from 2008’s Detours:

Sheryl Crow is also participating in a special fundraiser tonight, May 14, an effort from the Jazz Foundation of America to benefit the COVID-19 Musicians’ Emergency Fund.

Also taking part in the show are Elvis costello, Robert Cray, Angelique Kidjo, Bruce willis, Bootsy Collins, Ivan Neville and more — including “surprise guests,” too.
