    I didn't remember she performed Mother Revolution on the ADP tour. We got some good performances of Parasol and General Joy from that tour.
    Then of course there are the performances from the NOH tour like The Beekeeper or my most favorite performance of Parasol and not to forget Jamaica Inn from the NPR Poisson Rouge show but I guess everyone has heard that one.

    top 5
    Parasol
    Jamaica Inn
    General Joy
    Mother Revolution
    Marys of the Sea / Not David Bowie

    p.s. I have to say my taste has change a lot. I've always liked Parasol. That one has constantly been in my top-whatever list from that album. I used to like Marys of the Sea a lot when the album was released. I still like it, but maybe not as obsessively much. I remember I liked Barons of Suburbia and the title track, but they do nothing much for me anymore. These days I have more of a "what were you thinking?" reaction. Jamaica Inn was a slow grower and I still have to chuckle because everytime it makes me think of that "SS Sexi Trust" cartoon.

    Top 5:
    1) Martha's Foolish Ginger
    2) Parasol
    3) Mary's of the Sea
    4) Barons of Suburbia
    5) The Beekeeper

    Jamaica Inn is an honorable mention -- I agree with chris that if the production was less sweet, it would probably make the top 5 for me. It's beautiful live.

    Yes, the cavalcade of innuendo in the lyrics is endearing to me in a sassy-b-side way, and for some reason I think of her saying she was trying to channel a Debbie Harry vibe around this time (not that she sounds that way here).

    "a thought says 'what if I keep on driving?'" is pretty direct, amidst the peculiar fusion of sexy-LOLs.

    But the piano. She plays like it's the most tedious chore she's had all day.

    As much as I love the "keep on driving" bit, it does not salvage the song from being a hot, stinking mess. It actually provokes severe feelings of "WHYYYYY??" when I hear those goddamn cha-chas.

    So, that said, here's my least favorites!

    1. Cars and Guitars (no question)
    2. Hoochie Woman (ugh. make it go away.)
    3. Ireland (what can I say about this one that hasn't been said a billion times in the torisphere?)
    4. Toast (the beginning of babyvoice. I understand that this song is personal to her, a tribute to her brother, but he probably deserved better.)
    5. that piece of treacle about ponies & thoroughbreds. I actually enjoy a couple of moments on this one, musically. But the voice...the lyrics...it's reprehensible.



    But I actually rather like TBK! Barring NOH, everything that came after it is SOOO much worse!

    1.The Power of Orange Knickers
    2. Martha's Foolish Ginger
    3. Toast
    4. Ireland
    5. Barons
    Sometimes I think the so-called "experts" actually are experts.

    I don't think that Ireland is a particularly great song, but I also don't think it deserves as much hate as it gets. I think if it had a different life as a b-side it would have been liked.

    I'm just now listening to the Jamaica Inn from 9-6-2009 Manchester. What beautiful piano playing!

    I don't understand the Ireland hate either. At least the song sounds good - it is mixed/produced well. It just comes out of nowhere and is different for Tori. I also don't understand the hate for Mr. Bad Man - my favourite from ADP.

    My top 5:
    Martha's Foolish Ginger
    Marys (I disliked this song back in 2005 for some reason... I think I disliked the "heeeeyyy" parts. Now I f*cking love it)
    General Joy
    Toast
    Parasol

    Bottom 4 (there are only 4 songs I do not really like - the rest I like, love, or can tolerate):
    Sweet the Sting
    Hoochie
    Ribbons
    Knickers

    And Garlands and Song of Solomon are definitely my favourites from this era!

    For me:

    Jamaica Inn
    Martha's Foolish Ginger
    Marys of the Sea
    The Power of Orange Knickers
    Cars & Guitars (if I block out the cha cha cha's!)

    And I feel the need to list the 5 songs I would be happy to never hear again...

    Ireland
    Ribbons Undone
    Witness
    Hoochie Woman
    Sweet the Sting

    I love how the top 5's dispell a few myths that most people might love or hate certain songs, it's fascinating to read everyone's.

    I agree. I thought I was alone with the Cars and guitars love
