Musical Interlude: Laurie Anderson

One thing that seeing Kate Bush on SNL back in late 1978 did was to open my mind for a number of unique and innovative female vocalists and songwriters as I reached my mid-to-late teens. One of those worth noting is Laurie Anderson. This tune ('O Superman'), along with the title track to Big Science were two that I used to hear on Sac State's college radio station around 1982 or 1983:

laurie anderson - o superman

Here's "Big Science" used as a soundtrack to a video "path-ology":

I always liked her voice.
