Day 18 - A song that currently intrigues you. (the question was originally 'a song you wished played more often on the radio' but I really don't listen to the radio enough, so hey, I made up my OWN ANSWER.



Tori Amos - Fire to your Plain

I am usually a cut and dry girl. I can hear a song and instantly either like or it dislike it. But Tori works in this way that I hear it once and go "meh" and then suddenly it just works it's way underneath my skin until finally I add it to my favorites. All of her songs work like that. I will listen to it over and over again, and suddenly it's just there in my face and I find myself humming it. I think of course it may just be because it also plays on Shuu's phone's when it's trying to connect me (in the case I have to call her). But I don't think it's totally that, it's just a really good song. (I think true brilliance is a song that gets under your skin little by little. You know it's there, but it takes a little time to fully blossom.

Yeah, I mean I really didn't like Tori at all until Jennie introduced her to me. I remember hte first song that clicked, it was "Sleeps with Butterflies", now like 60 + songs later.. goodness.

Lady Gaga is addictive too.. though that comes when I see her music videos and then I'm "OH BOY!"

I'm kind of the same way with a lot of Tori Amos' songs too, actually: I listened to them at times and was sort of "Meh" about them...and then one day somehow I ended up bringing home a "best" CD of hers or something. It was crazily bizarre in a way. :D

I think true brilliance is a song that gets under your skin little by little. You know it's there, but it takes a little time to fully blossom.
~That's very true, I think. ♥

Yeah, most of her songs really do get underneath the skin in the most insidious way possible. I think that the surest one would have to be Leather, that one was the most climbly crawly of all her songs, I didn't even like it until one day I found myself humming along to it.. then I was like d'oh!

I love Tori Amos, she has some of the best music I've ever heard ♥

Yeah, I know.. she's a really good artist and some of her music just hits you before you even realize it. But hey that's why I love it. Though it took a long time to appreciate.

Fire to Your Plain was the first song that struck me off of her Abnormally Attracted to Sin album. I think it is just a brilliant piece of work and sometimes, I think I am the same way about Tori songs, though there are some that give me chills from the first chord, most I have to listen to a lot, then when the stars come into alignment it's like magic.

See none of the songs struck me off this album, the last album I can tell you definitely that "Bouncing Off Clouds" ws the song I took to like crazy, but I listened to the album and there was just nothing. Until this song started to inch it's way underneath my skin. Though Abnormally Attracted to Sin was also one of the good ones that didn't occur to me until Raven reverenced that song in one fo the RPs, and HE KNEW WHERE IT CAME FROM AND I DID NOT. And then I had to go back and listen to the song.
