"My Favorite Mistake" by Sheryl Crow

How Bitter Is It? 4 of 10. The song is too sweet to be bitter. If Crow's relationship with singer Eric Clapton was a mistake, at least it's her favorite one.

Sample Lyric: "I woke up and called this mornin', the tone of your voice was a warnin', that you don't care for me anymore, I made up the bed we sleep in, I looked at the clock when you creep in, it's six a.m. and I'm alone"

Backstory: Eric Clapton and Sheryl Crow dated for a brief time back in 1996, but they've kept their relationship cordial. It's been long-rumored that Crow wrote the 1998 hit about her time with Clapton, but she has never confirmed the story, saying only that the song is about the men in her life that weren't good for her. She's kept that information vaulted thanks to Carly Simon. If the song is about Clapton after all, then the two have clearly reconciled their differences, since Crow performed it with her ex-lover in 2006. (Photo by Tasos Katopodis/Getty Images for Gibson)
