Current Music: Sheryl Crow - All I Wanna Do
Tags: ,
Wyn Cooper's "Fun": the poem that inspired Sheryl Crow's bar-trash hit "All I Wanna Do (Is Have Some Fun)." It's amazing how a pop singer can completely recontextualize a poem by adding some country-style slide guitar, a terrible intro, a cheesy chorus, and a sexy voice.

If you've heard the song, a serious reading of the poem is utterly impossible.
