Song of the Day, March 25: If Not Now… by Tracy Chapman

ChapmanIfNotNowToday’s song is deceptively simple. Tracy Chapman’s intimate debut album is a masterpiece of understated folk. With simple arrangements and clear, straightforward vocals, she helped rejuvenate protest folk. If Not Now… ponders the people who wait for the perfect moment, missing too many chances. A love song, a protest song, and a reminder that the two can be the same, it offers a clear warning.

A love declared for days to come
Is as good as none

Enjoy this beautiful song today.
