Rediscovered Music : Tori Amos

tori amos little earthquakes

Tori Amos’ “Little Earthquakes” played a pivotal role in helping me manage my teenage angst throughout the 90’s.

… and today it is JUST as good.

    My friend Alicia (Yaya above) sent me your link because she knows I’m a Tori Amos fanatic.

    I have all of the “major” Tori CDs… meaning I don’t have all of the singles, imports, and dance mixes but I do have every CD she has ever released. I even have the “Live at Montreux 1991 & 1992” CD & DVD (which I highly recommend… psst… I bought them on Amazon through my blog). 🙂 [Sorry about that]. If you liked this, you’ll love Montreux.

    The only Tori treasure I haven’t gotten yet (some day the funds will be there) is her Box Set.

    I met her in 2007 backstage at the American Doll Posse tour and had third row seats. If you search “Tori Amos” on my blog, you’ll find a post or two with a picture of me standing next to Tori right before getting her autograph.

    If you look at the Facebook widget on my blog, you can see a scanned image of the picture Tori autographed to my daughter – who plays piano, organ, and electronic keyboard at 8 years old.

    Tori’s music is healing for me!

    In her autobiography, “Tori Amos: Piece by Piece” it says that Tori has endometriosis. So my excuse for posting the occasional Tori post on my health blog is that she has endometriosis like I do. What the heck, it’s my blog, right? 🙂

    March is Endometriosis Awareness Month, by the way! 🙂

    This is a great, classic clip! Excellent find! Every time I’ve seen her on Letterman, he seems to sincerely be a fan of hers.

    I have some good Tori clips on my blog. I especially love the live “Almost Rosey” version with just Tori and the piano. It’s like a little slice of heaven.

    Rolling Stone magazine once voted her “#5 Live Performer of All Time”. Having seen her live 4 times and having seen many artists, she’s a very easy #1 to me. 🙂

    This woman is a genius. Musical and otherwise!

    Oh! Her 10th major album will be released in the spring! I heard about it on Facebook. It’s called something along the lines of “Abnormally Attracted to Sin”. She is so amazing!

    Me too Maegan, I am a fan of Tori, she’s got vocals and doesn’t even have to try hard at it.

    I have some of her albums.

    I’m a big Tori fan, even though I haven’t really gotten into her more recent albums.

    Little Earthquakes will always be awesome to me.

    Gosh, she is such an amazing artist. Actually, I used to dance through her songs remixed by dj’s at clubs and bars in my 20’s. I miss those nights. 🙂

    ….I was in junior high and the stars were lined up for Tori. I got to see her when I was younger and she was amazing.

    Oh, I used to love Tori Amos and would play Cornflake girl over and over and over….I still like her.

    I gave you a Chic blog award. It will be on tomorrow’s post on my blog.

    I HEAR YA! Tori is my GIRL even though I have lost track (ahem, or curbed my obsession) since Choirgirl Hotel. God she’s brilliant, and she will help a girl survive anything.

    OMG she is BRILLIANT. LOVE HER. I’ve seen her six times in concert and think I have paid way too much for her foreign released EPs. ha! I still listen to her. 🙂

    I think it’s funny to see how young Letterman was! Did you hear him say her album was coming out in the very popular CD format? Wow!

    I remember hearing that album and thinking it was Kate Bush. Loved Tori’s early work . . .
