Suzanne Vega "Blood Noise"

I found this page at Billboard Magazine's website that lets you look back on the Modern Rock/Alternative charts for any week, since they started the format in the late 80s. It's kinda funny to remember those early days of commercial "Alternative" radio, which had sprung out of College radio. While there were truly artists who were Alternative, there were often artists who seem so far removed from the format today, that were there.

Like Suzanne Vega.

She's pretty much the epitome of a great Adult Alternative singer and songwriter. I can't imagine her getting played next to early Red Hot Chili Peppers or the latest Morrissey track on Modern Rock radio, but she did.

Anyway, here she is at her most Alternative, with a track that seems like an anomaly compared to the rest of her catalog.

Hear the song on Youtube.
