  • Arthur from New JerseyA number one country song that could have been number one pop. While most would consider "You Needed Me" to be her signature song, "A Little Good News" might be her best.
  • Staley from Dallas, TxI find it heartening to hear this song today, since so many of the problems mentioned in it have gone away (or at least made some progress). When I was a kid, it seemed like nothing ever changed. But when the Cold War ended, it seemed (to me at least) that history started moving again.
