Earworm of the day: Luka by Suzanne Vega

YouTube Preview ImageI have very mixed feelings about Suzanne Vega. When I was at university, for six months I lived next door to this very nice girl named JoAnn, who loved listening to music. Really loved it. Did I mention the walls were thin? Her favorite albums were Suzanne Vega’s Solitude Standing and Tracy Chapman’s Tracy Chapman. And believe me, there are only so many times a day you want to listen to Tom’s Diner or Talking ’bout a Revolution. That said, I have since recovered from Vega overload and have come to quite like her. Luka, with its harrowing lyrics and lovely melody, is probably my favorite song by her.

Are there songs that you hated due to ever-exposure in the past, but that you like now?

    Margaritaville by Jimmy Buffett — up to a point! ;)

    I don’t ever remember listening to her, although I do know her name I did listen to Tracy Chapman a lot but rarely do now.

    And you are right – over exposure does tend to diminish your liking for a song.
