good morning! i am loving this week’s mashup selection from DJ paul v. which takes on one of my favorite tracks of all-time – suzanne vega‘s hit song tom’s diner which has been remixed and mashed in so many different ways – i never grow tired of it! in 1991 an album was released called tom’s album which contains a bunch of different remixes and is a must have for any fans of ms. vega’s kick-ass track! popbytes over & out for now … xoxo
† FROM DJ PAUL V.
You could probably file the singer in this week’s mashup in the “where are they now file” – but back in the mid-80’s, Suzanne Vega was a breathy, folky female singer who scored a few modest hits. Her best known track was ‘Tom’s Diner,’ her stream-of-consciousness observations of eatery dwellers (fun fact: the real NYC diner is the exterior shot used on ‘Seinfeld’). Her original acapella was turned into a dance hit by UK mixers DNA in 1990, and it’s still a club fave. On the other hand, ‘Din Daa Daa’ was the #1 1984 club smash from Germany’s George Kranz. When electro-blended by Mad Mix Mustang (the beats
are Benny Benassi remixing Public Enemy), it makes for a freshly served 2K’s treat.
