Tracy Chapman ~ Talkin Bout A Revolution

Great feeling in her voice, what a natural. And the sentiments have never been more spot on. Tracy is on a par with 1960s folksinger-troubadours like Bob Dylan who, inspired by singer-songwriter-activists Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger, carved his own permanent and successful niche in the genre.

As with all things Born in the U.S.A., a few lucky performers end up getting rich singing about poverty. Some manage to stay real, others... alas, they turn reptilian!

our fresh water supply is no longer so fresh and plentiful, the air that we breath is filthy, our green parks and open spaces are taken over by developers, shopping malls and yet more shopping malls, there are more road accidents each year, our food supply is insuffcient/under threat of disease, our medicines no longer work the miracle that we are so used to and cost a bomb. Hurrah humanity. You've come a long way, baby.
