OK! So, the other day, all of a sudden, Tracy Chapman’s song “Fast Car” popped into my head. Why, you ask? Well, I assume I must have walked into a Starbucks or a Bed Bath and Beyond or some other sort of big box or burned coffee type of place in which it was playing in the background…but, however it happened, I found myself wanting to listen to that song again.
I mean, I don’t know about you, but I find that song to be kind of hypnotizing; I listen to it, and I’m like, YEAH, I think I need to hear that one AGAIN! Tracy Chapman, what are you doing to me? Is it possible that, 20+ years after that song was released, your melancholy, collar-gripping notes have still got a hold of my little old soul? Well, whatever the case may be, I will tell you one thing, friends, and that is: Tracy Chapman? She’s still awesome.
