Happy Birthday: Suzanne Vega

Happy 53rd birthday to singer-songwriter Suzanne Vega, who has the distinguished honor of being referenced as the "Mother of the MP3" after her 1987 hit single "Tom's Diner" was the first tune to be compressed to that format. Originally an a cappella, "Tom's Diner" was remixed as a bootleg by British production duo DNA and became a dance hit after Vega allowed the remix to be released through her record label.
