Audio sample

"If It Makes You Happy" is the lead single from Sheryl Crow's 1996 eponymous album. The song peaked at number 10 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and won Best Female Rock Vocal Performance at the 1997 Grammy Awards. The song ties with her hit, "My Favorite Mistake", as her third highest-charting single in the United Kingdom, reaching number nine on the UK Singles Chart. It also peaked at number one in Canada and was her second number-one hit on the Canadian Adult Contemporary chart.

In the 2009 VH1 Divas show, Crow and Miley Cyrus performed this song together.[]

Music video

Two music videos for the song were made; both were directed by Keir McFarlane.[]

The first was shot entirely in black-and-white. It begins with Crow in an apartment, donning a black raincoat. She then walks down a city street, rides a subway, is shown on a boardwalk, buys coffee at a mall, and then returns to the apartment.

The second video was shot in color and features Crow in the Endangered Species section of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. She is dressed in a leopard-print fur coat and Yves Saint Laurent leather boots.
