90's Hit Parade #95

Victoria Williams - Century Plant

The myth of the young star who burns across the sky is so pervasive in our culture that it's very common to find yourself at 30 or 40 having not conquered the world, and to become discouraged, to resign yourself. "If anything was gonna happen, it would have happened by now." This tune, which kicks off Victoria Williams' 90's comeback album, is a bit of inspiration to late bloomers. It's never too late. Corny as it sounds, I often think about this song during moments of doubt.
