"forgive" by rebecca lynn howard is apparently on the providence tv soundtrack, and is a country song with strings. don't let those things scare you off. you need to know two important things about "forgive": 1) the way howard delivers her lyrics with the most acid-dripping half-smile in the video, and 2) the line "forgive/that's a mighty big word for such a small man." marvelously nasty. not to mention that howard's about the only piano-playing artist to crash 2002's party who isn't stomach-turning (yes, vanessa fucking carlton, that means you). expect this one to cross over bigtime to the adult contemporary charts soon, and don't hold that against it, either.
