That song gets me close to weeping.Ah, memories. Fast Car was part of the soundtrack of my life a couple years after high school graduation. I don't like to blindly glorify the past, but some things about those years were so innocent, and I miss them. What I didn't know...
I have everything she has put out. She's was my voice as a poor person from the projects in Reagan's America.You're absolutely right, we do need more Tracy.
I saw her perform in London last Thursday night. It was a beautiful concert and she radiated a sweet saintliness and humility that made me feel blessed to be within 10 feet of her. I'm not given to hyperbole normally, but there was a genuine sense of holiness about this woman. I felt I was in the presence of a force for good in the world. I love that she's still political in her song-writing.
She's awesome, and I think one of the truly fine artists to come out of the 80's.But I am sitting here in tears. This album, and this song, brings me back to my long lost Bobby. All those years ago and I still picture his smile.
Joe, I can't listen to it without tearing up. I'm not sure why. So much of her music is emotionally evocative and that's why I love her so. Al, her first album came out when I was just finishing college, my applied sociology undergraduate degree. I remember everyone was just electrified by her words, that she was actually singing about injustice and making things right. Greg, I am delighted to hear she's still performing. I envy you!!! She does seem angelic, somehow. Such a powerful talent and intellect.Jeff, I'm so sorry, honey. This song hurts my heart too. Not for anyone specific, maybe for the time when Mike was so sick and I thought I'd lose him. Hugs to you, sweet man.
Gives me goosebumps, and that's nice. I will have to look and see if she's performing in my area sometime...we all need more love.Thanks for posting this
i wish she would have my baby.
