Monday Earworm: Suzanne Vega

In honor of its being Columbus Day here in the States — or rather, Indigenous Peoples’ Day, or even Columbus-Was-A-D-bag Day (I know, I know, tomato, tomahto) — I thought I’d post Suzanne Vega’s song “World Before Columbus” for today’s earworm. But seeing as how it contains some questionable lyrics, I’m instead going to post one of her other songs which I love. Enjoy!

And if you’re in Canada, Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you’re having a wonderful time. It’s probably snowing there, and I’m jealous. I have to admit, though, the idea of having Thanksgiving before Hallowe’en might just be a cultural bridge too far for me to handle. I guess I’ll keep living here for now, at least to see how the midterms pan out.

Wish us luck…

  1. I looked this video up on YouTube (unfortunately, the copy embedded here is unavailable), and it was pretty sweet. Gosh, those old movies sure were romantic 😍… except when they weren’t… #nomeansno 😓

    On a happier note, the next video that popped up was Sade’s Sweetest Taboo. Holy nostalgia, Batman!
