Chilling horse

Suzanne Vega with "Wooden Horse" off her biggest-selling album, Solitude Standing, which, alas, is quite out of print. Suzanne has the most chilling lyrics with the coolest delivery I have ever seen, a delivery that makes their impact even higher. Sadly her stuff is entirely too challenging for today's world, which is why she now plays solo sets in New York folk bars rather than for stadiums full of screaming fans, and her albums are mostly out of print and her last record label dropped her after 2007's Beauty and Crime despite it being a brilliant album...

  1. Suzanne Vega in a stadium? That is like W at a MENSA meeting, totally inappropriate.

  2. Yet, as you can see, at one time she did fill stadiums. But we have become dumber as a people since then...
