Never touched Suzanne Vega.

Unfortunately the vast majority of pop music compositions we are listening through have ability to vanish without a trace immediately after turning-off. Actually there are not too many singers who can make something with our blood, mind, memory, filling us with unexpected emotional experience. I am not passionate about any pop at all, but I have to confess that some of them bring me real joy to listen their music again and again.

I’d like to meet you
In a timeless, placeless place
Somewhere out of context
And beyond all consequences
I won’t use words again

Yes, I’m writing about singer and songwriter Suzanne Vega. I like her very individual songs, her soft heartfelt vocal, symbolist cryptic texts very much. I think nobody would take any chances to say exactly what about Suzanne Vega’s songs. There are no answers in her songs, only questions, and I suppose it’s much better when the record has more questions than answers. The questions turn into the mystery that one wants to open like a door or to read like a dream.

They don’t mean what I meant
They don’t say what I said
They’re just the crust of the meaning
With realms underneath
Never touched
Never stirred
Never even moved through.
