    I like some live versions but oh my God, yes. That album cut is a Houstonian summer with mosquitos and wasps at every corner of the premise to boot.


    I love pretty much the entire Gold Dust record. That’s my big contentious whatever; maybe it’s when it came out or something else entirely but some of those recordings hit me in the fucking gut. Especially Flavor, Silent, Snow Cherries and Winter. (That said I have a pretty extensive list of ways in which I think that project could sound better - we’ve collectively discussed that to death though)

    Oh, WINGS. I forgot. I love Wings and maaaybe it's going to land at a definitive list of Top 5 NI songs (that I'm never going to make).
    I will be safe in my frame.

    I love Sleeps with Butterflies. Whenever it comes on, I sing at the top of my lungs and annoy my neighbors. It's pure fluff and I love it.

    Ok I've just read "Harps of Gold owns my body" and had to reread a few times until I got it right

    I like it too, it was one of my first favs from SLG which I heard in 2007 for the first time (along with other albums) and then I got Pip at my Prague show and god, she rocked it.

    I like Fire to Your Plain (now much less than before but still a bright point on aats mess)
    Dolphin Song (esp. when I realized she references medieval French litterature that I used to study)
    Father's Son
    Original Sinsuality (but I realized it after hearing it live in 2014)
    Unrepentant Geraldines' first part (maybe not hated but understimated comparing to Vicar's Wife)
    Sleeps with Butterflies takes me back to the time I discovered Tori through TBK, I thought my life had changed but I didnt know the best was yet to discover

    Ditto. Plus the video cracks me up. It looks like a Starbucks commercial. I always think of that Rolling Stone review of TBK -- they were painfully accurate when they described it as a "female John Mayer or Jack Johnson." OUCH.

    That said... I really like this version.



    If only there was a way to combine this with the band jamming from Santa's version, that would be perfect.

    If Marys of the Sea is a hated song then I say it's fucking gorgeous, even though there's a tiny grammar error that is not acceptable for as a French philologist. But Helsinki 2015 just made me love this song even more

    SECRET SPELL

    I absolutely adore everything about it. Especially solo piano performances of it.
