at work this loser brought pure crap for cds and then he put in the twister soundtrack. ofcourse he blared van halen a few times, but then i asked what else was on.

he said tori amos. i knew someone liked her, so i said put her on. to his disgust he obliged.

i must say she has a lovely voice.

what song was that that i heard?

I did have MP3s of all the songs on my old computer but I don't have a copy on CD. I went through this phase of obsessively downloading every Tori b-side or rare song I could

I love Tori, I have 3 of her c.d.'s... Under the Pink, Boys for Pele, and a c.d. I bought as a rarity called Forgotten Earthquakes, which is really nice. I had Little Earthquakes, but it just vanished... I think it may have been stolen, but I don't know any details. I should put up "Missing" posters.

My favorite has always been Boys For Pele, but I've been listening to SLG and the live half of To Venus and Back a lot lately.

SLG--it took some warming up to, but I love it. Except the Eminem song...I only had to hear it once to get her point, and haven't really had the nerve to listen to it since. Love "Real Men" and "Rattlesnakes" though.

On TVAB, I really like "Cooling" and the live version of "Bells for Her," a song I don't much like on the album.

Any word on when she'll be releasing new original material?

*glad someone put this thread to good use!*

YKTR is more tragic than anything. It shows you what might have happened to Tori had she forever stayed a glam rocker. I am proud to say that I OWN the fabled YKTR...it cost me 30 dollars in the days before Napster when I actually had to track it down at a rare/used CD and record store. But it was worth it. Two very lovely songs it features are "Cool on Your Island" and "Etienne."

Tori is pretty cool.

I don't own any of her albums, so my question is: which one should I start with?

Like I said, Boys for Pele is my favorite. My favorite Tori song of all time is "Doughnut Song." She played it live when I first got to see her, so it was AWESOME!

Anyone else have an absolute favorite song by Tori?

I must say, though, "Raspberry Swirl" was the best live song from the shows I've seen...she can really rock when she wants to.

Yeah maybe newbies should start with Boys For Pele. Little Earthquakes and Under The Pink are also fine as starting albums... This was all before her 'quasi-electronica' era...

My favourite Tori song ever? Perhaps 'Merman' or 'Marianne'. I just love her piano work.

HeartlandGirl, you saw her live? I should be so fortunate ...

My brother saw her live and even got to shake her hand!

One of my favorites by Tori... well off the top of my head I'm going to say: Cornflake Girl

But I haven't thought about it too much!

Fav song?! I couldn't choose...I'll do fav. from each CD though:

LE: Silent all These Years

Pink: Cornflake Girl

Pele: (I don't know why, but this cd is SO difficult for me to listen to) Putting the Damage On or Marianne

Choirgirl: Northern Lad

Venus: 1000 Oceans

SLG: I'm Not in Love

My favourite by a country mile would have to be From the Choirgirl Hotel. And the more recent 'quasi-electronica' as another poster well described it, is fine too.

I find some of her more weird and wacky faerie ramblings a bit off-putting, but to be fair that is a personal thing - it has little to do with the actual songs.
