"Fast Car" by Tracy Chapman.

OK, more 80's: This powerful '88 tune won the "Best Female Pop Vocal Performance" Grammy that year for its composer and singer. Peaked at #6 on Billboard. At #165, it is the highest-ranked composition performed and written by a female among Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs. A song of hope, it is about "... a relationship that doesn't work out because it's starting from the wrong place". Song? Artist?

Yesterday's answer: "A Groovy Kind Of Love". One of the first songs to include the newly-coined term "groovy". Yeah, Baby, yeah! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hilAvj7oZhw
