Songfacts®:

  • This song is about our dependence on social media and technology.

    So put your phone away
    Let's roller-skate


    The song resonated with Sheryl Crow to such an extent that she's severely reduced her call phone usage. The singer told Metro: "I 'm off email, I text twice a day, my phone is always on silent. I 'm present and not addicted to a screen. It's improved my quality of living a lot."
  • Crow's two adopted sons sang on this track, along with three of their buddies.
  • Crow isn't the first to encourage roller skating. In Chic's disco classic "Good Times," they sing:

    Don't be a drag, participate
    Clams on the half shell and roller-skates
