Tom’s Diner

Who remembers this song?

It took me forever to figure out what the name of that song is.  I was listening to Fall Out Boys song “Centuries” on the radio, and I heard the hook from the song above and knew I heard it somewhere before.  I was like “that’s a 90s song, I know it, but I can’t remember who sang it or where the song came from….#frustrated.

Finally, after some research I found/discovered the song I was thinking of is “Tom’s Diner” by Susanne Vega, which actually is a late 80s song, but we can round it up to the early 90s.  I thought I’d share in case any of you were plagued with the same frustration I was.  Listen to the Fall Out Boy song below to hear what I’m talking about:
