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

The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
