From The Vaults: ‘Cracking’ (Suzanne Vega cover)

Following on from last month’s Suzanne Vega post: my own version of the first song on her first album. I still maintain that

It’s a one time thing. It just happens. A lot.

… is one of the great opening lines of a recording career.

If you like very low res video footage and motion-sickness-inducing shaky-cam (and you do, or why else would you be here?) then this is for you.

The song and video were recorded in the winter of 2009, as I was gearing up to embark on the dumbest romantic car crash of my life. You know how they say it’s better to regret something that you have done than something that you haven’t? Yeah? Well, it isn’t.
