“Tom’s Diner” by Suzanne Vega is crazy well known but have you heard both versions? The song was officially released in 1987 on her album Solitude Standing and the original version is an extremely eerie A Capella song. Suzanne Vega’s “Tom’s Diner” is a poetic look at the daily happenings at a diner. It flows like her train of thought.

The song was remixed by DNA (Neal Slateford and Nick Batt) in 1990 to add an entirely different dynamic to “Tom’s Diner.” Suddenly the song feels almost upbeat in a blasé 90s sort of way. The DNA remix went on to be the better known version of this song.
