My Music Monday
This one comes from my friend Doug, in Chicago. We were IM'ing last week and I was telling him of this "project". I knew should he participate, who his artist of choice would be: Tori Amos.
The man is a fan-boy.
Amos, to me, has her moments, but I am no one to sit down and listen to a disk of hers beginning to end. It's rude of me to say, but to me she's always come across as a poor man's Kate Bush. She is much more prolific than Bush, as she has 16 or so original solo disks to her name - plus a few 'collections'.
It took Doug a little while to narrow down his choices - as the prospect had him reeling. Sometimes, Doug is too gay to exist, but I love him for it. Some of his choices were obvious - but he started really thinking and opted for "a Sorta Fairytale". I hesitated to say yes, because I figured I might have already done that somewhere along the way, but a search of my blog tells me 'no'.
Actually, this is one of the songs I do like (hence why I might have included it before). Doug keeps hounding me to see her in concert with him. I probably should, but the shrill screaming in my ear would deafen me. And that's just of him, not even the rest of the fans.
I have seen the video before too. It's a little strange.....and not just because it has Oscar winner, Adrian Brody, in it.
