Why not post this here as well?
I remember this time back in 2006 something when I forced the DJ to play me Raspberry Swirl
sometime, and one night he did! The floor became rather empty, but I was there with two friends who I had introduced the song for and we went nuts. Psychotic dancing indeed - undoubtedly I embarassed myself - but I just wanted to dance to that track beneath all the lights, craving for more... "When all the boys can't be men"
Oh and... No! I just think it's wrong, so wrong to compare Tori Amos with either Melua (Zzz Zzz) or Norah Jones (Zzz) - she is so much more! Please, watch this and tell me what you think?
Celebrating your top 10 in the charts of pain
I've seen Tori live close to 10 times now, watching her stroke her piano bench, the way she communicates with the audience, how personal and intense she is, even during the ballads/slow tracks, the way she's experimenting with the different instruments. Nope.
The USA should be proud of having her!
Not to talk about i i i e e
- this track was my addiction for more than over a year... the depression I went through..
"WHY CAN'T IT BE BEAUTIFUL?"
And then there's Hotel
from the same album as these three above... First time I heard that in full, was while playing the album for the first time with my headphones on... I was dancing in the dark in my room,, and that track scared the shit out of me... Eventually I had to sit down in the corner until it ended in order to be brave enough to pass the wardrobes (where the killer could be hiding) or passing the bed (with evil little Chucky waiting under it to cut my legs with a knife)... so I stand up and I'm about to light up the room... but the track wasn't over
(This event has happened several times, another time with Kate Bush's "Hammer Horror")
Gosh. Sometimes I might forget how amazing From The Choirgirl Hotel actually is... but there are those 4 tracks towards the end except from Hotel which lower to overall score for me.
Double gosh! I'm gonna get late for school now!!! But sitting her remembering FTCH feels soo good.
Tori Amos have always encouraged me to feel free to interpret art and the world as it fits me best, to stand up for my beliefs and to feel brave enough to embrace my deepest thoughts/emotions - no matter how dark they might be. She's inspiring in her music but also in her interviews (although you never understand half of what she's talking about)... she is just this... crazy over-intellectual woman! And I love her so much!
