Fast Car Friday

Still as poignant as pop songs get. Still a remarkable and beautiful singer songwriter. If you're already having a melancholy weekend, listening to this song will help you to savor it properly.

Thanks for helping me wallow. No one can sing a sad song with quite this kind of inflection. 'Cept maybe Ryan Adams who is also on repeat these days.

The first time I ever heard of Tracy Chapman, I actually read the words to rather than listened to her song. They had included her lyrics in a poetry compendium. No doubt about it, the woman is a bard. I've always loved this song. I the words by heart.

jen,
if it is poignant it must be poetry.

jennifer h,
thanks again for stopping by.

cce,
sometimes you have to get over a bad feeling and other times you just need to go through it.

Milena,
Tracy Chapman is a bard but I think that she was discovered working as a busker in Boston. A busker bard?

nunya,
well, apparently you missed out on grief and at least one killer lyric.
