Quote of the Day (Suzanne Vega, on Explaining Her Songs to Audiences)

“I’ve had my moments where I’ve maybe blurted out more than I intended to, but most of the time if I don’t talk to the audience then it becomes a very uncomfortable show. My songs are kinda dense, and a lot of the time people wouldn’t know what I was talking about. So I learned that it’s better to tell them a bit about it. Not all the songs are my own particular stories, so it’s not like I’m having some sort of cathartic experience when I sing them.”—Singer-songwriter Suzanne Vega quoted in Henry Yates, “Welcome Back… Suzanne Vega,” Classic Rock Magazine, February 2006
