It's Monday. The Monday after a loooooooonnnnnnng holiday weekend of managing, serving and baking up so many spring themed goodies and then managing some more. The Monday that makes me want to just chill out and rest my brain, after yet another shift of course, and listen to something folky yet modern-esque. Suzanne Vega, you fit the bill!
Suzanne Vega has made 8 albums but only two of them make my list of my 'must have' records - 99.9F and Solitude Standing. The latter is the only one that I currently own on vinyl so it was the one I chose...duh. It's known for Luka and Tom's Diner but my favorites are Night Vision, Solitude Standing and Language. I can also recommend almost everything off of 99.9F especially Blood Makes Noise. If you've never listed to Vega I'd love for you to give her music a whirl. Let me know what you think, eh?
Gosh, I've got such a soft spot for eclectic and strong female performers - Julianna Hatfield, Tori Amos, Joanna Newsom, etc. I've been lucky enough to have seen them all...except for Vega! Darn it!
Funny story to share real quick! My Mother is notorious for leaving the price stickers and/or tags on almost everything she buys. We jokingly call her Minnie Pearl! Annnnd, I think I might be a Minnie m'self since I've realized that I leave the prices on almost all my albums...*sigh*
