December 9 — HAVE A LITTLE FAITH IN ME, John Hiatt (1987)

img_1687John Hiatt’s most popular song was recorded with a certain resignation. After repeated failed attempts to capture what they wanted, the band took a break and left the building. But not Hiatt, who stayed in the studio, sat down at the piano, and sang one take. Luckily, the tape was rolling. It’s a simple, powerful song. And any time I hear it, I can quickly think of a situation, at precisely that moment, where this song hits home. Including today.
