While Tracy Chapman may have made this song famous, it’s the version by Boyce Avenue that will forever remind me of Africa. During the long rides in our overland truck, we passed the time by playing games and listening to music. Rae, one of the girls on the trip, introduced me to this song, and I could not get enough of it. I still can’t.
Band: Boyce Avenue
Song: Fast Car
Favorite lyrics: City lights lay out before us and your arm felt nice wrapped ’round my shoulder and I had a feeling that I belonged and I had a feeling I could be someone.
