Suzanne Vega is a magnificent artist with enough sparkle and charisma to light up a smile in the smallest of hearts. She has her own blend of rock and folk music that gets people vibin to a spirit that's free-hearted and very much in touch with the people we love.
Suzanne is also not one to hold her tongue as she demonstrated in "Luka" which was a song that raised child abuse awareness world-wide.
Suzanne has amassed a superb collection of music with topics varying from infatuation and
seduction to remembrance and celebration. "Birth Day" is a song from Nine Objects of Desire that represents a rebirth of renewed vigor.
"One thing I know, this pain will go"- Suzanne Vega(Birth Day)
Strip the bonds that hold you, free yourself and enjoy the ride. I'm telling you, Suzanne can take a bad day and turn it into a rainbow. It's got to be her keen ability to see what's underneath the airs one often puts on to conceal true emotion from others. On any given day, you can give Vega a guitar, some groovy drums and that sultry voice of hers will shake you out of your shameful funk. We need that from time to time, someone to motivate us to keep going even after the torch has burned out. If we sit around feeling sorry for ourselves when something goes wrong, how will we ever make it to the finish line?
Birth Day is a song of celebration, a realization that all pain we experience is not to hurt, but to heal. You ever have a bad experience and realize that if you didn't go through the pain you wouldn't have learned what is so vital today? It's the moments of struggle that chisel out the characters we are, so there's no need to reflect on growth in a negative light. If everything was easy, we'd all be millionaires and have flying cars, but that's not the real world. So embrace your struggle and let it empower you to do things differently, be reborn like it's your "Birth Day".
