Equivocate

Equivocate: verb, to use ambiguous or evasive language.

When heroes go down, they go down fast

So don’t expect any time to equivocate the past

When heroes go down, they land in flames

So don’t expect any slow and careful settling of blame

(Suzanne Vega, ‘When Heroes Go Down’)

From Suzanne Vega’s angular, quirky Mitchell Froom-produced 1992 album ‘99.9F°’, this short and sweet power-pop burst is a slice of tuneful perfection, and there’s no equivocation in that analysis. I always look forward to the triangle near the end, but then I’m weird like that.
