Tori Amos - “Putting the Damage On”
I can’t resist posting another Tori Amos live video. This one is again from a performance on Later with Jools Holland but it was in 1996, when she released her acclaimed third album, Boys For Pele, a very experimental rock record. This is one of the many ballads on the album and is really a heartbreaker. Don’t dare not watching it!
Tori Amos - “Here. In My Head” (live on Later with Jools Holland)
The spectacular Tori Amos is always better on live videos - her official videos are not that good. This video is from 1992, when she was starting her career and had just released her fabulous first album, Little Earthquakes. The song, which was sang on her appearance on the TV show Later with Jools Holland, is “Here In My Head”, a B-side that was cut from the final version of the album but was then released on a single.
Fiona Apple - “Not About Love”
Fiona’s unofficial video for one of her singles from her awesome third album, Extraordinary Machine. This album was re-recorded by Fiona after she had faced many troubles with her record label, Epic/Sony, who refused to release the album because they considered it didn’t had “commercial appeal”. The original recording leaked on to the web and after that Fiona’s fans started the famous “Free Fiona” movement, something that helped Fiona release the album some months later.
Björk - “Human Behavior”
Her first video from her first solo album, Debut. An amazing artist was born.
The video was directed by Michel Gondry, one of her usual collaborators who is also an acclaimed movie director (one of his best movies is Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, staring Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet).
PJ Harvey - “Good Fortune”
“Like a gypsy, you dance in circles, all around me, and all over the world”
Music, as it is intended to be. (good)
Emily Haines and The Soft Skeleton - “Doctor Blind”
The video seems pretty ordinary at first but keep watching because it turns into a really CREPPY experience.
Besides, I LOVE Emily Haines. She is one of my muses.
It’s good music, folks. Try to get used to it.
