Sheryl Crow

It's easy to sing an upbeat song about how every day is a winding road when your road happens to have led to fame, fortune and above-average blonde highlights. That's the story for Sheryl Crow, who made her living composing television jingles for corporate giants like Toyota and McDonald's (Mickey D's reportedly paid her $40,000 for a single ad) before landing a gateway gig singing backup on Michael Jackson's "Bad World" tour. In the process of shilling for the man, Crow penned a surprisingly compelling lyric: "It's a good time for the great taste of McDonald's."
