On the eve of Election Day, Tracy Chapman went on Late Night With Seth Meyers to play what might be the perfect song for the moment.
Chapman played her hit song, Talkin’ Bout a Revolution, with simply her voice and her guitar, and it was powerful. She even changed the lyrics at the end of the song from “talkin’ bout a revolution, oh no” to “talkin’ bout a revolution, go vote.”
And I have to say: She sounded amazing. Her voice doesn’t sound like it has changed at all in 30 years, which is remarkable.
Perhaps even more remarkable is that the song’s message is just as powerful now, and it was the perfect song to set up a day where voters will decide whether or not Donald Trump keeps his job.
‘Cause finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin’ bout a revolution
Yes, finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin’ bout a revolution, oh no
