When I come to think of it, ‘Tracy Chapman’ was one of the most important albums of my early teenage years. 1988 was still the time when meaningful songs, like this one, asking inconvenient questions, were considered mainstream. …or maybe that’s just lazy of me to long for the times when we didn’t have to search for meaningful music? Anyway, I’d like to dedicate this one to all the corporate bastards trying hard, and—sadly—so often succeeding, to make us believe we have to ‘have’ instead of to ’be’, just to fill their pockets with ever more money, stock or power. And, of course, thank you Tracy, for your music and for caring, which is not so common nowadays.   7
