Day 126: Baby can I hold you, Tracey Chapman
I remember exactly where I was when I heard Tracey Chapman’s first hit. It was my final honours year at Sydney University and it was in the afternoon. I was downstairs in the Anderson Stuart building working on dissecting some chic motorneurons in a tissue culture cabinet. I had the radio playing and “Fast Cars” by Tracey Chapman was played. Although I enjoyed the song I thought the person singing was male. Anyway, a little later I bought the album and this was another hit song that was on it which I think is a little better.
My Video Summary
If you click on the Playlist Video for Week 18 (top right of this page) you will be taken to a single video which allows you to play each song in this week's list one after the other. Alternatively, if you watch my own video summary below of this week's songs at the end of the video two playlist links will appear. The one on the left hand side will take you to the video playlist for this week while the one on the right will take you to a single video playlist that allows you to play the complete Covid Island Discs collection for all the currently completed weeks so far — well over 200 songs and counting!
