We gave it an A-

A sweet departure for Suzanna Vega, the single from The Truth About Cats and Dogs soundtrack ”Caramel” is a sultry lounge number that gently swings to jazzy guitars, buoyant bass, and bossanova rhythms. Slipping out of her trademark social consciousness into something more comfortable, Vega teasingly sings about unfulfilled desire in a breathy voice that would make Pat Robertson consider pre-marital sex.
