Suzanne Vega, always accused of being a kind of "modern" Joni Mitchell, markedly changed direction on her fourth album, the electronically infused 99.9° released in 1992. The single "In Liverpool" is one of her finest compositions, and the album was the first of two produced by Mitchell Froom (Crowded House, Richard Thompson, Elvis Costello, Paul McCartney) whom she later married.
I especially like these lines from the lyric:
"And the boy in the belfry
He's crazy, he's throwing himself
Down from the top of the tower
Like a hunchback in heaven
He's ringing the bells in the church
For the last half an hour"
Watch and listen
