Aside

Tori Amos, Past the Mission.

I love, love, love Tori. I had this CD on in the car last week, and this song has been the winner for stuck-in-my-headness. If you don’t know Tori, give her a try. Will give recommendations upon request.

    • That’s very interesting. Is it a certain range that doesn’t work for you? F’r’instance, I love opera, but the usual soprano lead vocals are not my favorite, but give me a mezzo-soprano with those lower tones and I’m happy!

  1. Sorry, I had crap happening yesterday that has sort of ruined my happy mood. Not to be obscure, but I’m too embarrassed and pissed off to talk about it.
    No, I don’t bother with links usually, sorry! Tori never sounds the same twice, but Under the Pink, Little Earthquakes, and Boys for Pele are my favorites, especially the last one. I love signing along, and she is hard to try to copy! Great range, fabulous voice. She’s a bit crazy; I usually can’t tell what she’s talking about. One song is called God and is rather snarky toward the ‘big man.’

    • I’m sorry about the rotten day. I hope something happens today to even things out and let you find your hilarity again.

      Thanks for recommendations. I went on over to Amazon and had a listen–lovely voice!

    • hope you are good today! if it’s any consolation i had a pathetic attempt at the weekend..nothing achieved apart from going to the pub and getting rat-arsed last night.. then just as i came in (around midnight) a poor unfortunate woman i know from the river rang me and had to listen to me slurring down the phone for an hour..upon waking this morning i discovered i’d forgotten to switch the tumble dryer on! so school uniforms were dripping..so we all threw a sicky and now i am riddled with self loathing & guilt :/
      oh well, tomorrow is another day

      • Ugh – but I bet the girls didn’t mind a bit. Yes, Socks told me he was twittering away about it to you. Joy. I think I’ll tell my funny story, it might make me feel better. I’m not talking about his ‘thing’ on here.

    • I adore Tori. Or rather her first 4 albums. Once she got happy her music went down a little. But good for her for that time of happiness. I always loved singing her stuff, but can’t get that close. Her voice is just amazing.

      Don’t even get me started on her in concert.

      • Agree totally. She was better when she was bitter. I drop down an octave usually – I can do the high range, but I have to be loud and as I don’t let anyone hear me, that’s not much fun unless I’m in the car by myself 🙂

        I didn’t want to scare anyone off by mentioning how she plays the piano 🙂

        • You’d almost have to be dead not to be slightly turned on by her… posture while playing. 🙂

          A lot of art needs unhappiness to make it grow. Everything being fine just doesn’t make a great song. I can almost go full range with Kwix, I know he’s heard it but I’m still timid. He and Bec use to hover around the sewing room listening. LOL!

Thoughts? Gardening tips? Cocktail recipes? Don't just like and leave, please - I can talk for Ireland and would love to prove it!
