We Are All Nerds

Tom’s Diner by Suzanne Vega must be one of the nerdiest 80s hits. I was recently reminded of DNA’s remix version, so I searched iTunes for it, only to be surprised that there are so many cover and remix versions by various bands and DJs. Suzanne Vega outed so many closet nerds by capturing their imagination and compelling them to do their own versions of the nerdy song.
I downloaded 4 versions.
As if I needed confirmation, I also just discovered that the original track is included in a compilation titled Music for Nerds.
