Lucinda Williams, "Passionate Kisses" (1988)
"After recording a pair of acoustic blues albums for Folkways, Lucinda Williams found her rightful audience with her eponymous 1988 Rough Trade debut. It contained this hoarse-voiced pop-rock anthem about not only wanting but deserving a comfortable bed, bath, and emotional beyond. Williams was broke and turning 40 when Mary Chapin Carpenter softened the song's edges, added a stirring guitar arrangement and took 'Passionate Kisses' close to the top of the Billboard country chart in 1993, winning Grammys for both herself and its author."
