Tori Amos (...and Ani DiFranco)

Okay..
I've never listened to Tori Amos (or Ani Difranco) but both names (more Tori) keeps coming up lately.

So I figure I may as well give these gals a shot.

What should I download (or buy, but first download)?

tori is well known, search for a download of the bootleg live in canada 93, sound quality medium, but what a performance. the cover of smells like teen spirit is incredible.


anidifranco... reckoning/ revelling, there are some good songs.

i like "so what".

the only Ani song I really like is "Hell Yeah" but I'm not very familiar with her whole catalogue

Boys for Pele is my favorite record ever, tied with Achtung Baby. Yet somehow I tend to think that with Tori it's good to start at the beginning, with Little Earthquakes. Anyway, let us know what you think!

I'm off to see her in Denver on Thursday.

Yay!!! a sorta fairytale is a great song...I didn't like it so much at first but then I, too, eventually got stuck on it and kept hitting replay in my car over and over and over again.

A suggestion in case you decide on Scarlet's Walk...get the limited edition. More expensive but it has the lyrics, the regular version doesn't, which is almost unforgivable on a Tori record, esp. one as complex as Scarlet. What was she thinking?!
(forgives Tori all crimes, however...)



edit: of course, you could get the lyrics off the net and save a couple bucks

Tori is an artist that you must own ALL her CDs...a lot of tori fans recommended Ani to me and I have her albums DILATE and NOT A PRETTY GIRL...but I find her quite hard to listen to...her style is a bit strange...more like poetry to a beat.

Tori Amos

I heard the song where it goes "he had to get out of there" (or something like that) and after the chorus she does this falsetto bit matching the piano notes. I'm guessing it's one of her better known songs because I heard it before. (I didn't know it was her though)

What should I listen to?

While we're talking, what other female artists are worth getting into (so far I know Alanis and Sheryl Crow but that's it)? I heard of Fiona Apple, KD lang, Jewel, Tracy Chapman...any suggestions?

To answer your second question, Beth Orton and PJ Harvey.

anyway, I had one Tori Amos song (and another one which was a Bruce Springsteen cover) on the cd pax gave me for the mix exchange ('Winter') and I really really liked that one.
