Tracy Chapman - Fast Car
I have to give my father credit for introducing me to Tracy Chapman. I remember being driven to school and her stuff always playing. I loved and still like this song quite a bit.
Tracy Chapman and I have an interesting relationship. I cant stand her music anymore BUT there are a few songs like Crossroads, The Promise, Revolution etc that i can manage to listen to but its unlikely that i will have her songs on repeat. She is a phenomenally talented singer/songwriter i will admit. ....
This song is from her debut album and this song was the best selling single on that effort. My friend Olawunmi is probably her biggest fan and i give him credit for making me listen to a few of her recent stuff.
This is a monumental song but it introduced the world to this incredible talent. It also won the Grammy for Best Female Vocal Performance in 1988
