Tracy Chapman – 1988
I remember falling in love with Tracy Chapman’s music when I saw the video for Give Me One Reason on VH1 (back when they played music videos). Probably on one of those days I pretended to be sick so I could stay home from school, get comfortable in my parents room with the blinds closed and watch day time TV (the soaps, the music, the talk shows… Ricki Lake and Sally!).
You can dream to this song. We don’t all have the perfect lives we want… can you say you haven’t hoped someone would take you away from it? White knights and shining armor. And even they aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.
Learning to play it on the guitar.
