So I'm listening to Mono and Dead Man Shake back to back, and it struck me Making Me Go (2002): "you'll be taking me to Sheryl Crow" No Matter What You Say (released 2003): "I went to Madison Square Garden and had a terrible time"
What's the chance these are both inspired by the same event? SC played MSG in 2001 as part of the Concert for New York City. Not a headliner, but special guest. Goo Goo Dolls were there too, and Jagger, and Keef. I can't figure whether that's something that Paul would actually attend, but I could imagine getting dragged there by the Mrs.
Thoughts? Maybe this isn't deserving of its own thread, but it's quiet around here, and if random Westerberg thoughts can't be thrown about here, then where else?

Don't know about the gist of your question.
But I'm not so sure he's actually saying "Sheryl Crow." He might be saying "share a crow," as in the idiom "to eat crow"--to admit that you are wrong. Paul is the master of word play, though, so if he is saying the latter, the phrase is also intended to refer to Sheryl Crow.
