Finally, let's talk a little about the song itself. Unlike the young German bands, Suzanne Vega hardly needs an introduction. The author and performer of songs, as well as a talented guitarist - today this woman is called "Mother MP3"! And absolutely deserved. Vega used this format as a test when encoding music files. "Tom's Diner". But this composition is very interesting not only for this.

No one really knows when the hit about "Tom's diner" was written: some believe that it happened in 1981, and others in 1982. However, it is not so important. And the drip composition was the biggest breakthrough in Suzanne's career! And the fact that modern artists make their own covers once again confirms this.

Curious fact: originally the lyrics were supposed to be accompanied by piano! But due to the fact that Vega was not in a simple relationship with this instrument, this idea had to be abandoned. Here it is hit a cappella!
