#58 – Tracy Chapman – “Give Me One Reason” – (1995)

This wasn’t Tracy Chapman’s first hit, but it was her biggest. Oddly enough, she performed this song on Saturday Night Live in 1989 – six years before it was ever actually released. Chapman wasn’t the only female to successfully market a blues-rock song. I would feel remiss for not mentioning Bonnie Raitt’s 1991 hit “Something to Talk About.”
