Suzanne Vega

The weird thing is that the songs that take the longest are sometimes the quickest ones to write, because you can spend months thinking about an idea and then when you sit down to write it, it’ll take an hour or two. “The Queen and the Soldier,” even though it took months of thinking about it, took about three hours to write. Same thing with “Luka.” It took me months circling that idea, then I wrote the whole thing in about two hours.

From Performing Songwriter Issue 6, May 1994
