Cool day; bright but watery winter sun that glares in your eyes when you look up. The song provides solace where there is lonliness shattered dreams. Solitude and nothingness and empathy are feelings/senses the song can evoke. Brilliant!!

Today I am a small blue thing
Like a marble or an eye
With my knees against my mouth
I am perfectly round

  • It's a blue house tat plays Vangelis and it looks scary
  • Twerps - stop replacing the original with remixes. Thanks so much.
  • Her album "Suzanne Vega", and especially the song "Undertow", was a standout record for me during the 80s.
  • I first heard Suzanne's voice when I was not very well following a car accident, and laid up in Addenbroke's Hospital, Cambridge. Those memories have stuck with me ever since - that was 1989! Her voice helped me through my recovery.....thank you, Suzanne!
  • today i am a small blue thing made of china made of glass...
  • Funny, I hated her music years ago, it sounds ok now.
  • Just superb
  • What an amazing(ly underrated) artist. Greatly enjoyed her concert in Tel Aviv a few years back.
  • Autumn curled up on the settee listening to Suzanne - my sad adolescence!
