The 1990 DNA Remix Deconstructed For You Mixing Pleasure

This 1987 A Capella song from Suzanne Vega's album "Solitude Standing" caused quite a stir in 1990 when DNA took the song to new heights by supplying music and a Soul II Soul style beat and making the "Doo doo doo doo, doo da-doo doo" line that normally closes out the song, the chorus between the verses. Not only did this remix surpass the original song, it spawned a slue of cover's, remakes and parodies, enough to justify an album "Tom's Album".
Well now, something like twelve years later the DNA remix of this song is here in stem form. Available are six music stems so you can reconstruct the DNA version - well somewhat, or create something entirely different. What is missing, unfortunately are the drums. Perhaps they sampled the beat from a Soul II Soul song and legalities prevented it's inclusion here. This release is ok in my opinion because the song is originally an A Cappella so it's always been available.
