1000 SONGS - DAY 197 SONG # 228

Day 197: A song no-one would expect me to love

I like this one take of this one song by Tori Amos. It is said to be about her father. The "official video" is simply pathetic, Tori dancing around aimlessly surrounded by little children. There is a live-version on UTUBE from the beginning of her career. This is kind of overdone and I cannot look at her singing it. Other live versions, from when she had already a career and played a Steinway grand piano are also somewhat artsy-fartsy in my opinion, to say the least. But I really do like the take from her first album, Little Earthquakes, although I always feel a bit uncomfortable about confessing it.
