Day 77

Tracy Chapman- Tracy Chapman

I'm ready to get grief for owning this one, but I don't care. I own this because of "Fast Car".

By no means do I think this is a fantastic album, but I have always loved the song "Fast Car". That is just a great, great song. Definitely one of the best of the 80's. I even had it on cassingle back in the day. There was a format that really took off!
"Baby Can I Hold You?" is real nice song too.

But past this album, I really can't defend her. There was nothing else that I took a liking too and "Give Me One Reason" was 1995's "Hey, Soul Sister". Oy, I hated that song so much.

And I will say that Side 2 is nowhere as strong as the first side. 6 songs of album filler. Well, "If Not Now..." isn't bad, but that's about it.

Of course I'm putting up a video of "Fast Car".


  1. Nice blog idea. I think you could open up your posts more if you just embraced the album and not worry so much on being judged on your music choices/defending them.

  2. Thanks for reading it! My friends give me crap all the time for my taste in music, but I don't really care. I find it funny.
