- Whether deliberate or instinctive, "Pavement Cracks" captured the mood of the US, perhaps the world, in the aftermath of the economic collapse that started in late 2001 / early 2002. Unemployment and homelessness spiked and remained high for several years, reaching a peak about the time the song was released. Literally millions of peoples' lives fell apart, and a mood of hoplessness began to permiate the country. I was one of the people deeply effected by the collapse, and I still remember where I was standing, and exactly how I felt, when I first heard Annie Lenox singing "Pavement Cracks". Haunting, mesmerizing, smooth and loving, eerie, and unstoppable, and very very sad, "Pavement Cracks" wrapped it's arms around a cold, scared, hopeless nation, and me, and told us that there was at least one person out there that understood what we were feeling. I consider it to be a very important piece of art and I appreciate the effort, the beauty, the genius, and the gesture. A belated; thank you Annie Lennox.
