Fast Car – Tracy Chapman

18 Jul

A classic for today because it has been completely stuck in my head for the past few days. Fast Car is my favourite song by multi-platinum and four-time Grammy Award winner Tracy Chapman. Chapman began writing songs at the tender age of eight, and it becomes crystal clear that songwriting is her calling when you take a listen.

Yeah, breathtaking. Sorry, just had to fit that one in today even though you all probably knew it. Recently I have become a huge Tracy Chapman fan, and am on the verge of worshipping her, so hopefully you can all join me. As I was watching the live performance on YouTube, this comment stuck out to me: “If you’re younger than 20, watch and listen carefully because this is what they used to call talent.”
