Più di ogni altra cosa, Tia sogna di diventare una cantante, una la cui voce sia capace di cambiare il mondo. Il che non è affatto semplice, visto che è povera, con una mamma che si spacca la schiena lavorando in un supermercato e un papà in galera. Però la sua voce è davvero pazzesca e Tia già canta con un coro gospel in cui è una delle poche ragazze bianche. Un giorno, a pochi metri da dove il coro sta provando, viene ucciso un bambino e la verità riguardo al motivo per cui suo padre è in carcere esplode, facendo crollare il muro di silenzio che la mamma e i suoi amici hanno costruito attorno a lei. È una verità talmente scioccante che Tia non riesce più a cantare. Anche il suo sogno è morto per sempre?

Styx's feisty, straightforward brand of album rock is represented best by "Blue Collar Man" from 1978's Pieces of Eight, an invigorating keyboard and guitar rush – hard and heavy, yet curved by Tommy Shaw's emphasized vocals. Reaching number 21, with the frolicking romp of "Renegade" edging in at number 16 only six months later, Pieces of Eight maintained their strength as a front-running FM radio group…

Gil Scott-Heron's 1971 album Pieces of a Man set a standard for vocal artistry and political awareness that few musicians will ever match. His unique proto-rap vocal style influenced a generation of hip-hop artists, and nowhere is his style more powerful than on the classic "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised." Even though the media – the very entity attacked in this song – has used, reused, and recontextualized the song and its title so many times, the message is so strong that it has become almost impossible to co-opt. Musically, the track created a formula that modern hip-hop would follow for years to come: bare-bones arrangements featuring pounding basslines and stripped-down drumbeats. Although the song features plenty of outdated references to everything from Spiro Agnew and Jim Webb to The Beverly Hillbillies, the force of Scott-Heron's well-directed anger makes the song timeless. More than just a spoken word poet, Scott-Heron was also a uniquely gifted vocalist. On tracks like the reflective "I Think I'll Call It Morning" and the title track, Scott-Heron's voice is complemented perfectly by the soulful keyboards of Brian Jackson.
