Quotes:

There are things I wont expose. Like who my musical influences are.
I'm gonna tell you who I've slept with before I tell you that.
Certain things are sacred.
- Tori Amos

Musically, I always allow myself to jump off of cliffs. At least that's what it feels like to me. Whether that's what it actually sounds like might depend on what the listener brings to the songs.

Band Name Origins:

  • Tori Amos was born Myra Ellen Amos but figured out that you really *can't* get many guys (or sell records :p) with the name Myra Ellen. She was at a bar with a few friends and one of her guy friends said, 'You look like a Tori' and thus the name stuck. Submitted by: Snowii

Weird Names of Music Performer's Children:

  • Natashya - Lothlorien was a land of Elves, not Faeries. Submitted by: Brie
  • Natashya - 'Faery' is incorrect. The word is spelt 'F-A-E-R-I-E'. Submitted by: me
  • Natashya Lórien - Lórien is short for Lothlórien, one of the main Elven cities in the Lord of the Rings. It is (or was, rather) ruled by Lady Galadriel and kept alive by Nenya, the Elven Ring of Water. It diminished when Galadriel and the Three Rings left for Valinor after the One Ring was destroyed. It was also "the name of the gardens and dwelling-place of the Vala Irmo, who was himself usually called Lórien" (The Silmarillion). Lothlórien means Lórien of the Blossom, and loth means flower. I doubt even Tori knew all of that! Submitted by: Irenthel
  • Natashya Lorien - I like the first name, but the middle name sounds a bit too much like a really weird alien from Babylon 5. Submitted by: LadyCorneliusPlum
  • Natashya Lórien - Lórien stems from the name for the faery land in Lord of the Rings, Lothlorien. Submitted by: jennie

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Sweet Dreams"
The Funny Lyrics:
I've got lizards and snakes running through my body,
Funny how they all have my face.

All I can think of is a whole bunch of tiny little tori-snakes slithering about all over the place. Sick, I know.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Bliss"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Father, I killed my monkey
I had to let it out
To taste the sweetness of spring
Why They're Nonsensical:
This puts me in mind of the story Frank Skinner told at Leeds City Varieties about the residents of Hartlepool who hung a monkey in mistake for a French spy. As this was the time when French footballer Eric Cantona played for Leeds United, Frank reckoned the monkey had its collar up just like Cantona's!

Tuna, rubber, little blubber in my igloo
Why They're Nonsensical:
Words fail me.
Submitted by: wolfie

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Happy Phantom"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Will you still call for me when she falls asleep
Or do we soon forget the things we cannot see?
Why They're Misrhymed:
Very few of the lines in this song rhyme, but this particular couplet is painful because it's comparatively close, yet so far off the mark. Personally, I think a better choice would have been 'cannot keep', but I'm no songwriter.

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Me and a Gun"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Me and a gun
and a man on my back
When you're pushed flat on your stomach
It's not a classic Cadillac
Why They're Inappropriate:
I'm not sure I'd actually classify this as "inappropriate" but it was the best definition for it out of the ones listed. The song is about rape.
Submitted by: Tim Kramar
"Mary"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
What'll we do when our babies scream Fill their mouths with some acid rain
Why They're Inappropriate:
i'm suprised that natashya (tori's daughter) is still alive
Submitted by: matan

Dated Song Lyrics:

"Cornflake Girl"
The Dated Lyrics:
Gone to the other side
With my encyclopedia
Why They're Dated:
You mean your Wikipedia, right? By the time the '90s were over, my parents had no clue what to do with our old encyclopedia set. All the information was dated by '92, and the format was completely obsolete already.
Submitted by: Chris Storms
"Siren"
The Dated 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
Why They're Dated:
"Cellular" is a very dated term for a mobile phone, for starters. The lyrics also are to insinuate that girl spoken of in the song is rich, not holy, because due to the ownership of a mobile phone. You know, 'cause that isn't something that grade schoolers regularly have now.
Submitted by: Chris Storms

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Little Amsterdam"
The Dirty Lyrics:
father only you can save my soul
playing that organ must account for something
Why They're Dirty:
I never really thought about it until I saw Tori in concert. On 'playing that organ' she stroked the length of the mic suggestively, as if it were a phallus.
Submitted by: SanguinaryApple
"In the Springtime of His Voodoo"
The Dirty Lyrics:
got an angry snatch
girls you know what i mean
when swivelin that hip doesn't do the trick
me pureed sanitarily mr sulu
Why They're Dirty:
Don't know if I consider these 'dirty', but some folks might...anyway, these always kind of tickled me...Tori is a trip...'got an angry snatch, girls you know what I mean' is certainly a rather unique and personal sounding lyric...and 'me pureed sanitarily mr sulu' sounds an awful lot like a douching process...NOTE: I didn't capitalize her lyrics because she writes them all in lower case...
