Today marks the first Tunes Tuesday, a series dedicated to acknowledging great tunes that burn like shining beacons of truth and beauty in the Musical Universe. Instead of starting off with a big bang, I’ve decided to ease us into it by tipping my hat to the wonderful Tracy Chapman.
Fast Car is fantastic, and I can belt Give Me One Reason for hours on end, but the song that I’ve chosen for today’s tune is The Promise.
When I woke up this morning, it was cold and grey and all I wanted besides coffee was Tracy Chapman telling me that if I waited for her, she would come to me.
Tracy’s effortless voice flows over the beautiful guitar picking and subtle strings, leaving me cuddling all the stuffed animals by the second verse.
