Damn time flies.

Heard this yesterday for the first time in forever.

And thought "must be plenty of younger people who don't even know it". That's not a knock, just an observation.

The significance of this song? Of the Rolling Stones top 500 All-time greatest songs... its the highest ranked song that was written and performed by a female artist.

Tracy Chapman - Fast Car.

 
I played this for a few friends the other day and they were fairly convinced it was Tracy Chapman

Told them it was a white guy from sweden but they were skeptical

 
That song was and still is one of my most disliked popular songs ever. Couldn't hit turn it off quick enough when it first came out. I really can't believe people actually enjoy this song. I actually respect her and the song for artistic reasons but :X

 
I was in the club late last weekend, the DJ was playing ASAP Ferg & Rocky's "Shabba Ranks", then mixed it with a few of the original Shabba Ranks songs; the girls I was with (early 20s) knew the new song obviously but had no idea who Shabba Ranks is.

I caught myself saying "he's the reggae/rap guy that was out a few years ago" - yes, a "few years ago", 1990.

Both girls were born in '90 & '91

#### I'm getting old :sadbanana:

I hated that song when it came out and as my musical tastes have changed and evolved over the years... I still hate that ####### song.

Perhaps they've never heard Tracy Chapman and assumed she makes crappy overproduced pop music?

Is it ironic that I knew someone who at the time thought Tracy Chapman was a dude?

 
It's a decent song with something to say. I like it. Hard to believe it has been 25 years. Thankfully I am going to live forever or this aging stuff would really be worrisome.

Guilty. When I first heard the song years ago, I thought it was Vince Gill (country singer).

 
It' a great song in a dark pub around midnight as you pass thru stage 3 of a good drinking night. That moment of reflection where you realize your life sucks :)

Someone I know likes The Fray and whenever I hear a particular song (can't remember the title) it reminds me of Chapman.

 
Good song, but was way overplayed back in the day. It was parodied a bunch as well. My old roommate did a version called Fast Truck.
