Cat Power “Headlights” (1993)
The debut single, released as a 7” and limited to 500 copies.
The lyrics are a first-person narrative about a young woman dying on the side of a road after a car accident. It alternates between the scene of the woman dying as her friend stands over her, and the conversation that took place moments prior to the accident.
The photograph featured on the front cover of the single is “Nancy” and was taken by photographer Emmet Gowin in Danville, Virginia in 1969.
The single ended up in John Peel’s record box, where he put his Top 143 singles of all time.
