MOMENTS | Mash-up: Giorgio Moroder x Britney Spears Cover Suzanne Vega’s “Tom’s Diner”

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

After a 30-year hiatus, Giorgio Moroder’s comeback album, Déjà Vu, has been a glorious thing of endless pop star collaborations. In what is arguably his most genius move yet, the disco legend has Britney Spears covering Suzanne Vega’s 1987 a cappella hit “Tom’s Diner.” The classic track is named after the real-life restaurant used in Seinfeld, and Spears’ reinterpretation gives the iconic ‘80s song a very club-pop twist. It may seem almost blasphemous to do anything to the unforgettable doo-doo-doo hook, but believe us when we say this cover does “Tom’s Diner” sonic and spiritual justice. Moroder actually hinted at the collaboration in an interview with Rolling Stone, stating he and Spears were working on “a song which came out about 30 years ago as an a cappella, just a voice.”
