Songs You Need To Hear: Amy Correia, “Powder Blue Trans Am”

Videos by American Songwriter

If you’re like us, you’ve been following Amy Correia’s career since Carnival Love, her stunning, five star-worthy Capitol Records debut in 2000. You can check that album out here (don’t miss the haunting Jeff Buckley tribute “Blind River Boy”).

After getting her feet wet again with 2004’s Lakeville, released by Nettwerk, Corriea briefly fell of the radar. But now she’s back in top form with You Go Your Way, another rootsy gem of an album, this time self-released. Correia shows of her Rod Stewart-meets-Lucinda Williams pipes on “Powder Blue Trans Am,” a song about wanting to get back in the game. It’s ladies’ night in her soul, in the bar of broken dreams. She’s looking for a man, and for some unfathomable reason, it’s presenting a challenge.

“I’ve been sucking on a Tic Tac, condoms in my purse,
knocking back another, and I couldn’t feel any worse.
Bar stool fools flirting with disasters,
things they never change and I feel like getting plastered.”

Pull up a chair, and take a listen.
