Vega-498x500

 

 

I should have put Suzanne in a "forgotten artist" category, because no one is talking about her these days. There are only two huge hits I remember her for. I think she became most famous for a club mix she did called "Tom's Dinner," off her second album called "Solitude Standing." This must have been a special 12 inch release, 'cause she only sings this song a-cappella on her album. I loved the beat of this song. Although the song only peaked at #5 on the billboard, it was still a considerable hit. The second song you may remember her for is a song called "Luka," which is on the same album. This was a very important song in the 80s, as it brought awareness to domestic violence towards women. The song hit #3 on the Hot 100 Charts. She has recorded quite a few albums since then, but none has repeated the success of her second album.

I can't think of Suzanne Vega or "Luka", without thinking of Homer Simpson. That scene is hilarious, especially with the way he starts singing it.

She's good. I listened to a few of her hits recently and not only did they bring back a feel of the good ol' days they hold up really well.
