My friend MartinA big "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!" to my pal Martin. He's one of my very few close male friends. After we met we found out we were at the same concerts more than a few times.

+ Tori Amos: Famous Blue Raincoat (Live) - Another one for my funeral playlist. I still recall the first time I heard it on a bootleg (Titled Under The Covers) that was copied one cassette at a time via the Tori mailing list's hey days in 1994. I recall it b/c the tape had Tori singing "American Pie" the night Kurt Cobain died. It also had the first time she did a bunch of other covers like "Boys in the Trees" and "Wrapped Around Your Finger"
Thank God for modernity, who needs to find old cassettes when there's YouTube.
