As promised



Scene: 10:30 pm on a rainy night, home.

[ring ring ring]

Xolondon: Helluh?
Tori Amos: XO, this is Myra Ellen, calling from Cornwall.
Xolondon: Tori? I'm chanting as we speak darling!
Tori Amos: Whatever. Are you exploiting my girls, motherfucker?
Xolondon: Posting your bees? But Tori, I am an Ear With Feet!
Tori Amos: Listen bitch, music is the purest form. That’s where the message is unadulterated, clear and knows who it is. I don't want you to cloud or pervert what the sonic realm is doing. You got that?
Xolondon: But Tori, these girls need to live-
Tori Amos: DO AS I SAY, pussy man! Or I'm gonna have to cut ya!

[click. dial tone.]


Operator expired
Jim Croce cover, circa 2005, recorded for radio broadcast.

Garlands expired
also known as "Washington Square" - a long piece left off most versions of Beekeeper. Harkens back to the early days, especially because it is over 8 minutes.
Siren expired
From the movie Great Expectations (Paltrow version). This predates Choirgirl. Excellent song with an urgent chorus of indecipherable lyrics: "Never was one for a prissy girl /coquette call in for an ambulance/ reach high/ doesn't mean she's holy / just means she's got a cellular handy / almost brave / almost pregnant / almost in love /Vanilla"

The Happy Worker expired
From the movie Toys. Verrrry different.

Spark (live) expired
Excellent live version recorded for Westwood 1 from the Park West in Chicago, 1996.


You don't want to cross Tori Amos. If you didn't see it before, read this post from June 2005.
