Start listening for "Give Me One Reason," stay for the rest

Tracy Chapman's 1995 album New Beginning is still holding up strong over 25 years later. Her song "Give Me One Reason" was the radio hit, but I strongly recommend the rest of the album. Mostly slower songs, very heavy on Chapman's signature acoustic guitar, with little hints of blues and jazz. 

In her lyrics, Chapman addresses a variety of topics: love, family, socio-economic issues, homelessness, addiction, relationships, and so much more. With her distinct voice, she weaves the tales of the people in her songs and gets you, the listener, fully invested in their outcome before the end of the song.
