So this is what it takes to make your music everlasting. As casual listeners or musicians, we can learn something from Ms. Vega. It’s your music that truly matters. Not the looks, not this decade’s music trend, chart peaks, or record sales. It’s the bare accoustic guitar and non-rambling, beautiful, touching, and honest lyrics that will always win your ears and tuck your heartstrings, over and over again, years after years. You’ll never get bored of Suzanne Vega. She’s timeless.

My Rating: 9/10
