Cover: Sam Smith – Fast Car (Tracy Chapman Cover)

It’s really hard not to love Sam Smith. Not only does he seem like an alright bloke, but his voice really is to die for. For BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge he tasked himself with covering arguably one of the most beloved songs of the twentieth century. Not only does he do Tracy Chapman‘s 1988 single complete justice, but the easy-listening, stripped back atmosphere solely draws the ears and the heart to the poignancy of Chapman’s lyrics, executed with passion and emotion within Smith’s touching vocal performance.
