Trick or Treat: Caramel

Suzanne Vega: Caramel


I’ve searching around for some “treats” for this week, and I have reached a conclusion: all such songs are actually about sexual attraction. “Caramel” is certainly no exception. But where “Candyman Blues” and even “Lollipop” are very clear about their intentions, “Caramel” is all suggestion. All are great songs, but Suzanne Vega’s tune is all the more intense for what it doesn’t say.

Suzanne Vega was the first artist I ever posted here at Starmaker. I apologize to her for waiting so long to get back to her work.
