    I'll start off talking about my favorite singer. I don't know many people around my age who know who Tracy Chapman is, and I have never met a Tracy Chapman fan. Which is a pity, because she's one of the most fantastic singers in this world, and her songs are really interesting: sometimes the melody is really simple -so simple, that I am able to play some of them, and I'm a terrible guitar player- and yet, she creates a song that's magical.
    The first time I listened to Tracy Chapman, I was a "victim" of this magical effect her songs have. I remember it was November, 2009, a lazy Sunday morning and there was nothing interesting on TV, so I decided to leave it on MTV, because, well, I like music. After some songs that didn't interest me, they started with the videoclip for Tracy Chapman's Sing to you, from her 2008 album, Our Bright Future.

    is flipping mind-blowingly, amazingly great. seriously.

    i had always heard "Fast Car" and "Give Me One Reason" among another or two growing up, thanks to my mom. i'd always loved them. even when i was a kid and had no idea what she was really saying. then i got a little older and some of the things she said resonated with me. then i got a little older even and kind of forgot about her. yeah, stupid, huh? totally. so then, i got even older and decided to delve in again, this time fully. entire discography in hand, i got tracy-fied.

    so basically, long story short - Tracy Chapman is AMAZING.
    only, i feel like "amazing" doesn't really even begin to cover it. normally i would look up another word that i felt was proper, but it really doesn't matter. because no matter the word, it's not going to do tracy chapman justice. there is no word for this. i am drop dead so serious.

    point #1: HER LYRICS!!!!!
