The Mother of The MP3

In the early 1990′s, Suzanne Vega’s voice and song “Tom’s Diner” was used in the refinement of the MP3 by Karlheinz Brandenburg, the German computer programmer. He found that Vega’s voice was the perfect template with which to test the purity of the audio compression that he was aiming to perfect. 

Happy birthday, Suzanne ..
