Tracy Chapman - Give Me One Reason
When this song came out, I believe I was only about 10 years old. I wish I could say I was a savvy cool music kid back then, but I was very much the opposite. "Give Me One Reason" had come and gone and I was none the wiser until over a decade later when I started learning guitar and getting into blues music. Tracy Chapman's song had instant appeal, and I fell in love with the soulful bass-line. This song has a very calming effect on me and, more often than not, I find that I have to replay it as soon as it's over.
