however, the best song is Professional Widow - song is insane
I'm just starting to get into Tori and bought her greatest hits - Tales of a Librarian. I'll have to check this song out.

I did buy her Spark single which had some great songs to accompany the main title. Also, I bought the second installment of the Best of Red Rocks CD, which has a live version of A Sort of Fairytale. That's really when I started paying more attention to her.

Tales has a remix of the original Professional Widow and it's a completely different song. I mean, basically it sucks. You need to hear the original from Boys for Pele.

Little Earthquakes and Under the Pink are old-school Tori pretty much just her and a piano. Then you have Boys for Pele where she brings in the Harpsichord. Then From the Chiorgirl Hotel has more instruments and more electronica elements to it. It's my favorite, but her others are very good as well. "A Tori Amos Collection — Tales of a Librarian" is her best of, which might be a good place to start.

Little Earthquakes is definitely my favorite.

Tales is a good place to start too, if you would prefer a compilation to an album.

What are your favorite songs so far? I remember that album blew me away when I first heard it.

Glad you liked it! That's awesome!

I own all of her albums, plus a handful of singles. You won't regret buying them all.

Ya, Little Earthquakes!
Umm I dont remember any of the titles, and I dont feel like checking right now, but I was really amazed at the first song, (crucify, saviour) It was sweet, I liked every single song, mostly for her creativness and her lyrics!

Little Earthquakes is a masterpiece! It's my favorite album by a female artist ever! Crucify, Girl, Silent All These Years, Winter, China and Leather are all gorgeous. Not to mention Precious Things is genius.

That title still makes me chuckle after all these years.

Not to mention the album cover!
