TIL, thanks to the Internet Artifacts site, that the a cappella version of Tom’s Diner by Suzanne Vega’s was the first recording that was ever encoded into MP3.

I love the song. My beloved English teacher, Garbiñe Badiola, used it to teach me this beautiful language. So I thought that it could only be appropriate to bring the song to my blog.

Enjoy. Thank you, Suzanne. Thank you, Garbiñe. And thank you, Hiro, for showing me the Internet Artifacts.
