24 May 2013 - Suzanne Vega - Blood Makes Noise

So, what happens when a really good folkie turns her back on folk music and tries her hand at electronic music?

Pretty good, interesting electronic music.   Suzanne went with a mechanical sound and a Metropolis feel to the video, but lyrically, it's as deep as anything she did as a folkie.



Since this time, Ms. Vega has, of course, returned to folkier ways.  Here is a live version of this song, more punky and less electronic, but still interesting.  This performance is from SxSW 2010.  Note how bass-heavy, and not electronic, this song is.  And yet it works well still.



Finally, here is a minimalist version of the song.  As a gift to my co-blogger Scott, it is preceded by a live version of her song from the "Pretty In Pink" soundtrack, "Left of Center". (See, Scott - I read your posts!)
