Tori Amos: Not David Bowie
I love "Songs of Faith and Devotion". This is an excellent fucking cover.
For my Leonard Cohen loving Muse
I'm posting this for the only girl who makes smile, my muse.

UNREPENTANT GERALDINES by Tori Amos comes out in the Spring. I have high hopes its a return to form. *fingers crossed*. I don't even have to write about the U2 album b/c you KNOW that's THE ONE I'm really looking forwards to.

+ 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.

I had opted to be quiet. I had nothing nice to say. why be hurtful? Imagine how I felt when you spewed all the venom I held back right at me . If your goal was to constantly frustrate me, you win. I can't fucking find you. I've come to learn that you know how to torture me like the best of them.
“And then black night. The blackness was sublime.
I felt distributed through space and time:
One foot upon a mountaintop, one hand
Under the pebbles of a panting strand,
One ear in Italy, one eye in Spain,
In caves, my blood, and in the stars, my brain.”
Canto Two, Pale Fire by Vladimir Nabokov/ reluctantly subject to your disposal...
That's one kick ass re-imagining of "CRUEL". I didn't see her in Austin so once again I missed getting "Butterfly" live.
