Suzanne Vega, measure for measure

I simply love Suzanne Vega’s writing about song writing. I think it’s amazing how she can lay out the complex creative process leading up to a lyrically and musically finished and polished song. In her latest entry in the NYT’s measure for measure blog, she writes about being comfortable with being a two hit wonder and about the creative development and production of her 80s hit “Luka”.
