Bout a Revolution

One more music post for good measure this week. And then, I promise, I’ll write actual words. But I also believe Tracy Chapman’s “Talkin’ Bout a Revolution” just fits this moment. And Chapman, despite or precisely because of her reluctance to bask in the limelight, remains one of my favorite singer-songwriters of all time. The elegance of this sparse song. How she can draw a picture so simply, yet so powerfully. It rings through time with an eternal message. Well, seems I found some words after all.

What an amazing, poignant, beautiful song performed live by Tracy Chapman!
I love her voice, the sound of her acoustic guitar, and her message of the hope we so desperately need during these dark days of unmitigated evil, hate and ruthlessness being perpetrated by Trump et al..
Thanks for the lift!
